All done with class, so here’s what the thingamawhat’sit finally came out like.  I even had a fellow classmate create his own amazing interpretation on the whiteboard.

Thingamawhat’sit Continues

More farting around with the thingamawhat’sit during class breaks and lunch.  I spent way too much time fussing with the louvered looking parts in the far back.

Another Word Shelf

I’m working on another “word shelf” for some family back home, so I thought I’d post some process photos.  I’ll put the final picture up top once it’s all done.  Finally got it all done!

Inkscape Ironman

I came across this video last night, and had to try out tip #2.  This quickly scribbled Ironman was the result.  I also found myself using his melon as the start of my bulletin doodle at church today.

Classroom doodles

I have the pleasure of taking a class this week and next, so I thought I’d post a few things I made on the breaks.  The auto-static hydro-maculate thingamawhat’sit above was the result of me starting inkscape at lunch and just putting some shapes together.  I’ll probably keep working/adding to it through the next week to see what it turns out like.

On the first day of class there was some random reference to a “dude sitting at home in a snuggy,” which I was compelled to draw on the whiteboard the next morning before class…  Whiteboard markers are hard.

Tod and Copper Paper

My wife is finally getting home tomorrow from a week long trip to visit some friends, and I decided to use some of the time to make her a surprise.  When I posted my Tod and Copper doodle a few weeks ago, my wife said that was one of her favorite Disney movies ever.  I thought recreating the doodle in paper form for her would look cute.

The least fun part today was trying to get it in the frame.  This particular floating frame has two pieces of glass and a tolerance for about i photographs worth of paper between them.  This thing at it’s thickest is probably five-six layers of cardstock, so I had to grind out the channel for the glass a smidge to get it to squeeze in.

Today I also had time to finish the “finish” on my hope shelf.  No to find somewhere to put it…

High Seas Hitchhike

After Metalbeard’s ship was destroyed in the movie, he tried hitching a ride on the Black Seas Barracuda (6285), but the crew just assumed he was trying to steal the ship.

Workbench Complete

Last night I sealed the top of the bench and today I sanded the pillars.  This is a picture of it’s stowed away form, which it will sadly spend most of it’s time in.  The pillars have added some extra shelf space in the garage though…

Workbench Construction

Today I got to spend almost the entire day farting around in the garage building a workbench!  Finalized the plans last night, headed to the hardware store this morning, spent the rest of the day covering myself in sweat & sawdust.  Just need to sand, maybe stain, and probably finish off the shelves better.  I’ll also show it compacted and stowed away later.
