Playing in the Sand

This past week we were at the central Oregon coast for 5 days. I made a maple sand toy on the CNC machine before we left to make textures in the sand. The beach we were on had several small streams running across the sand. We made many dams on these streams, diverting the water and carving the sand. I also played around with animating driftwood.

  1. I went to college in Portland. Loved going to the Oregon Coast. So different from the beachs in So Cal.

    Hopefully nobody from the EPA watchs this video otherwise some idiot bureaucrat at the agency will sue you for
    destroying coastal "wet lands". ; >)

  2. Very interesting and looked like fun. Yea the wood sculpture thing wasn't as popular as a stick. Also interesting was about the dam breaks and ripples in the flow! BUT, I'm surprised no sandcastles or sculptures built "DAD" — haha.

  3. pretty cool 🙂 i think itd defs work better with a long handle as it would also let u apply more pressure, and get more defined shapes? i think haha, makes me miss the beach though i used to do the same with damming rivers 🙂

  4. Nice video, Frank. When I was a kid my friend and I dammed up this little stream to re-route it for fun and it went that other direction (about a 20 foot deviation from its regular path) for a good 10 years or so until someone came in and built a house so they came in with construction equipment. I wish I had that kind of driftwood, I found a piece once and milled it down and made a frame for an old picture of my Dad with his surfboard from the 60s. It's was this amazing wormy wood that I believe may have actually been some kind of lumber at one point but it was hard to tell .

  5. Which beach is that? I know sunset beach (Just south of warrenton) has a little stream sometimes as well as the beach by camp merriweather that are pretty good for damming up (and the later has some good sized drift wood and rocks around to supplement the sand!)
