Halloween 2012 – Domo

Halloween 2012 has come and gone, always seems too quick, doesn’t it? in light of last year’s hit halloween costume of Racing Teddy, I wanted to make another giant head. there were some improvements to be made, though. The Teddy head was a shoulder-mounted design where my forehead counterbalanced a bit of webbing that hooked […]

T – 1 Month

Halloween is just around the corner, as you may have noticed with the awkwardly early store displays or the chilly evenings we’ve been having. Last year about this time, I was working on my Teddy Roosevelt head: and as I considered options for this upcoming halloween, I can’t get over wanting to make another giant […]

Teddy’s Last Outing

This is the first time I’ve been able to use my halloween costume again. After waiting for the DC to “thaw” from our super mild winter, baseball season is upon us and I was finally able to debut the Racing Teddy giant head at Nationals Stadium for a Nat’s game! as you may remember, it […]

Halloween 2011 – Teddy

This year for Halloween, I wanted to revisit an idea some friends had from last year – this You3dMe website goes into how to make a giant head using glue and card stock paper. an AMAZING idea I think might be next year’s feat – but I wanted to do something more locally relevant.

The Run Down

I’ve been majorly slacking the past several weeks, and it’s mostly been because every week has been a whirling dervish of things to do. I know it is no excuse, but here’s some interesting things I was linked to by a friend! See how other people take the tree-art-wall pieces to new heights! here is […]

Tree Coat Racks v1.0

As most my projects start, there is an idea: This sketch of a tree was my guide for making my version of the Swedese coat rack. this is a coatrack cut out of a piece of wood, mounted a few inches off the wall. you can hang your jackets or purses off the branches, and […]

Beehive Smoker Project

My friend Arlene and I embarked on the ceramic pot smoker project described on this website, which references the Alton Brown ceramic flower pot smoker video to show how you put it together. Instead of using the same shape/style of flower pots, the two I found turned out to look like a beehive when put […]

House Project: Lights (1st Sequence)

I’ve always liked bare light bulbs, especially the edison style ones that really show the filament. Local restaurant Rustico has these lights all over their dining room, which looked awesome. So after some sketching, I decided to actually go out and make it. I consulted with a couple friends about the logistics of lighting five […]

Packing: the Suit Burrito

I may have revolutionized packing without using a traditional semi-hard wheelie suitcase. mostly because I don’t own a wheelie case (except my snowboard bag), but the situation is I was packing for a wedding and vacation for two weeks in taiwan and my travel bag was my gregory palisade 80. This presented two major problems: […]

DIY: the $40 Pot Rack

I have a handful of nice stainless steel pans I’ve been slowly accumulating over the past several years. It wasn’t until recently that I decided to look for a solution to display these pans in a reasonably functional manner. The most obvious solution would be a pot rack. The biggest problem I have with a […]
