Bathroom Tiling: Bathroom tiling is probably not something the typical homeowner enjoys doing. But a good tiling job can make a huge difference in a home. Our current home has sheet linoleum in both of our bathrooms. It’s been ok, nothing fancy and it’s still in pretty good shape, but we’ve wanted to tile these washrooms ever since we bought this place like 4 years ago. Baseboards: The other day, we noticed that one of our baseboards is getting really moisture damaged near the tub. So I’ve decided that this is the next most important project in the house. I […]
When family is in town, what better way to spend time together than working on a Hexagon Shelf Project for our little baby girl. When I was young I used to help my father with some projects around the house. Sometimes it was installing flooring, or building a shed, or painting. Sometimes it was really boring work that I didn’t want to do because I was a brat (you know, like every kid). But I’ve always had fond memories of working late, ordering pizza, and finishing a project late into the night … Maybe that’s why I work that way […]
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 […]
So the approvals are back! The Etsy listing updated and the order confirmed! Things are rolling. I’ve purchased all the materials needed from the hardware store. I’ll be picking this up tomorrow. Just in time for me to begin manufacturing on the weekend. Stoked!
So, I’ve completed the Design of the Pyramid head Cosplay that was requested . Below are the approval drawings created. I’m actually quite happy about how the design turned out. I’m really looking forward to making this thing! Just to give you an idea comparing this with my original design. I actually tried to ship the original design, but quickly learned about the rules of regular shipping (i.e less than 2.7m of Girth + length). Needless to say, the shipping (through LTL) was too much for the purchaser to accept. So I still have this packaged up. The original was a […]
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.
Currently working on a commissioned project. A re-make to my original Pyramid head Cosplay from back a few years ago. Now I can finally make it better!
DropBOB Designs now with 50% more dimensions! I’ve been working on upgrading my cold brew coffee maker for the PRO scene. I wanted a more robust and flexible model and I think this going to be my next prototype. Feel free to grab the model below and rotate and explore! I’ve designed this with the user in mind and I wanted a fully interactive user experience, right out of the gate! No holds barred!
So I’ve been wanting to do this for a few years now, but I’ve never had the patience to really devote some time to it … Until now. Rendering of partially designed board (top view) I’ve been learning circuit board design and component selection. I’m hoping to not only simplify the entire wiring design for my cold brewer. I’m trying to expand its capabilities tenfold.
Some of you may be wondering what I’ve been up to over the last little while. I haven’t posted anything, nor have I put my “Star-Lord” Costume up for sale. Well, it’s because something has been bugging me. I’m unsettled about one of my designs … and its preventing me from focusing on other things. As you can see from the above image, I’m working on a PRO version (i.e something you’d see in a coffeeshop or a coffee enthusiast kitchen). All, while improving on the DropBOB control mechanism. You see I’m no longer just happy with having the […]
