I finally found the right color of stain (Rust-Oleum “Kona”) to finish the little keepsake drawers I made for my wife.  Now if we can find a place to put them in the house…

Lucky for me, my wife noticed my “Your” error on the front well before they were going to print them.

The Way Things Work

A few weeks ago I got the chance to teach our Cub Scout den about mechanics for their engineering project.  I decided to make a few simple machines with LEGO Technics that we could handle, take apart, and figure out how they work.  I also brought my copy of “The Way Thing Work” by Neil Ardley and David Macaulay.  This was one of my favorite books growing up and taught me all kinds of stuff.  It should be a staple in every mini-van full of kids!

After making the robot penguin, I’ve been meaning to this of something else to make.  The other night Pabu from the Legend of Korra popping in my mind, and I had to do it.  I really like how it came out and threw some process photos below.  Maybe I could sell stuff like this on etsy?
