Recycling Truck

It's been a fairly big hit with other kids that have come over to play, so I may be making a bunch of these around Christmas time...

Since she was about a year old (maybe younger), my daughter would hear that engine rumble from down the street, drop whatever it is she was doing at that time, yell, “GARBAGE TRUCK!*” and race to the door just in time for it to stop in front of our driveway, extend the arm, grab our big blue bin, and dump it into the compactor/container.

She waves.  The driver honks.  It’s magical.

My wife was kind enough to make a crockpot meal specifically so I could take photos and video. She's amazing.

Lightsaber (Lego-Style)

The Lego lightsaber design is clearly the best lightsaber design.

Friends, we’re currently at an odd in-between moment after the home release of The Last Jedi and before the upcoming Solo film.  In the meantime, you can complete your training by constructing a new lightsaber.

Just like the real thing!

Started a Blender class on udemy before my son was born, and got a few sections into it before my free time completely evaporated.  Last weekend I fired up the little Wacom tablet I got for Christmas and decided to go rogue.  Started playing with sculpting features after watching a primer video on YouTube.  Was fun.

The Space Porter

Not the colors he wanted, but he can choose what he wants when he prints it out himself.

Successful first collaboration with my six-year-old nephew Noah!

A space captain (princess or otherwise) should never leave port without their trusty sidearm: The Bolide Blaster.

Cheekymandos – TechMech

I need to work on lighting... Pretty much all these photos were taken under the same circumstances, and the brightness is all over the place.

MAYBE FIGHTING FOR FREEDOM!
