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 PRO “Hit-Single” release


So I’ve been back from holidays for about 2 weeks now, what do I have to show for this? Well, to be honest, not as much as I’d hoped. I’ve actually been struggling with a little bit of mild anxiety. This all started sometime while I was in Europe on vacation. I didn’t know it at the time, but it turns out Nasonex (a nasal steroid for allergies), has some side effects that actually affect me. Anxiety is not something I have ever really had. So it caught me off guard.

I’ve stopped using the spray for about 2 weeks now and the anxiety is almost completely gone. It only pops up if I don’t sleep enough now. This made me a little more aware of what people who suffer from anxiety feel. It’s not fun. It makes you doubt even your own rational thoughts. My anxiety was actually centered around “being stuck somewhere” … like planes, or even a restaurant. Anytime that I would be forced to not move, whether because of norms (like at a restaurant or movie theater), or in a plane or bus, my hands would sweat, and if I thought too much I would actually get a full on panic attack where my chest would feel warm and my heart would beat faster. I managed to keep it under control though.

Out of Office – from Cool to Hot – Vacation Post!


Over the last couple weeks I’ve been playing around with my newly designed Cold brew controller, and I have to say … I did a pretty good job with the initial design! Though, I’ve already been working on a revision to fix some minor issues that I had not foreseen (mostly due to with the intricacies of the ESP32 board).

DropBOB Interconnect board – CoffeeMkr PRO Beta1


So I’ve finished the design of my interface board between the ESP32 and my Cold Brew Coffee Maker PRO. It was mostly complete a little while ago, but I had not yet done the design checks for this new awesome service I discovered. I was searching for a simple and affordable board printing service. There are a bunch, I know, but I really do like this one: dorkbotpdx.org which runs their orders through oshpark.com.
