Nursery Baby Change Table Build – By #DropBOB Designs


So, I have quite a few projects on the go. Among my cold brew coffee maker, I need to also prepare for our little girl that we’re expecting in the fall of this year. So, I’ve designed and built a custom (DropBOB Design Original) Baby Changing Table.

Safety First! Cutting wood creates lots of dust (and I’ve been particularly affected by pollen lately). Also always wear goggles with foam protectors when cutting!

The whole time that we were buying wood, Jenn kept saying that it wouldn’t fit … “No honey, I’m sure I’ve fit an 8-ft long thing before” … “your car isn’t even 8-ft … it won’t fit” … looks who was right?

DropBOB commissioned project – Pyramid Head – Packing and shipping!


Shipping is often overlooked by new businesses and startups. But it’s actually one of the most important things to review and plan for. I actually custom designed my shipping box so that I could ship as efficiently as possible. Often, if you are stuck using a standard box, you end up filling it with too much filler, and you pay (and charge) too much for what you’re shipping.

DropBOB commissioned project – Pyramid Head – Built & Ready for paint!


With the materials all unpacked and ready to be assembled, today’s build day started out with a bang … or rather a high pitched hum of the Dremel saw.

As per Jenny by-law (of which I haven’t been able to find in writing yet), the noise making was allowed to start at 11am. That’s pretty much when I started laying out the wooden frame patterns. Continue reading DropBOB commissioned project – Pyramid Head – Built & Ready for paint!

DropBOB commissioned project – Pyramid Head – Approval Drawings


So I’ve been busy working on finishing the Model and coming up with a good set of Approvals/Layouts for my commissioned Pyramid Head Cosplay. It’s been a real hit on my Etsy Page.
I’m not quite happy with these yet, but it’s a start. I often berate the drafters at my “other job” for having terrible drawings … but making drawings from scratch is hard. Especially when the information you want to convey/receive is not fully defined yet.
