DIY Monostand (cont.)...

After several hurdles, cuts, and head scratching everything is starting to come together. A few bolts and some woodworking remains. With my new mini saw horses, my extra bedroom studio is almost ready for action.

Thinking in Three Dimensions...

A very good friend of mine told me about some open-source CADD software. Here are some designs I've recreated from 2D to 3D.

Watching the Band...

I took this photo during my cousin's band practice while in Michigan last year. I printed the photo, put it in a box labeled "Test/Pilot 2011," and then forgot about it until today.

DIY Monostand (Continued...)

After a lot of head scratching, returns to the drawing pad, and lost bits of skin I finally have the first chunk of the arm of the mono stand completed. As always, I'm glad to see this thing finally starting to take shape. I will say, though, that this project has skirted the boarder line of "maddeningly difficult". It doesn't help that I can't make a straight cut with a hand saw to save my life. Compounded on top of that is the fact that I'm not used to hand-shaping curves. Anyway, below is the progress thus far.
