  • Patent number: 9321141
    Abstract: The invention relates to a device for sanding a predetermined impression into a workpiece. The device has a pattern belt positioned inside the area formed by a sanding belt. A pad is positioned inside the area formed by the pattern belt. A raised pattern is formed on the outer surface of the pattern belt. In use, the pad contacts the pattern belt, urging the raised pattern of the pattern belt to contact the sanding belt. The portion of the sanding belt contacted by the pattern belt is urged toward the workpiece so that the predetermined impression is sanded into the workpiece.

  • Publication number: 20150083607
    Abstract: A low-voltage, low-energy electrochemical system and method of removing protons and/or producing a base solution comprising hydroxide and carbonate/bicarbonate ions, utilizing carbon dioxide in a cathode compartment that is partitioned into a first cathode electrolyte compartment and a second cathode electrolyte compartment such that liquid flow between the cathode electrolyte compartments is possible, but wherein gaseous communication to between the cathode electrolyte compartments is restricted. Carbon dioxide gas in one cathode electrolyte compartment is utilized with the cathode electrolyte in both compartments to produce the base solution with less that 3V applied across the electrodes.

  • Publication number: 20140261891
    Abstract: Implementations described herein comprise knives and cutting systems for forming a predetermined impression into a wood layer and methods associated therewith. In some aspects a cutting system comprises at least one knife, and a means for rotating the wood block about a rotation axis. Each knife of the at least one knife can have a cutting portion and a base portion, wherein the cutting portion comprises a cutting surface defining a pattern. The at least one knife can be operatively positioned relative to the wood block such that, upon rotation of the wood block about the rotation axis, the peripheral surface of the wood block is urged against the cutting surface of the at least one knife to form the wood layer and the pattern defined on the cutting surface of the at least one knife is configured to form the predetermined impression into the wood layer.
