I Love Projects!

Gearing up for the talk at TechShop, and I'm going through projects to share. I'd say I'm more of a Re-Purposer than a Maker, but I'm starting to open up to projects beyond paint and tape. These are still my go-to tools, but it's been fun to branch out. This shop is going to give me even more options, so I'm looking forward to jumping in.

In the meantime, here's a recent project with some process shots thrown in:
