Corbin Dunn – Roue Cyr for What is Erotic?
I have been working on a new design for my master bathroom for quite some time. I finished in Sketchup recently:
I’m going to be doing a “floating” design where the cabinets are supported by steel that goes into the wall. I hope it works out the way I think it will! The above is a rendering from sketch up. Below are a few of the raw SketchUp screen shots:
After I did the design, I used a Plugin called “Cut List” to get a rough estimate of how much wood I will need.
I went by Aura Hardwoods yesterday and actually got some wood. I’ll have to go back for more (I didn’t even get the sheets of plywood I need for the drawers), but now I can get started!
Mostly cherry, with maple drawers.
Lots of people search for treehouse, followed by cyr wheel / roue cyr! People are in particular interested in making these things themselves.
Tom Holub took this great picture from last weekend:
I was charging my car last week at home and started to smell some burning plastic. It was coming from my EVSE (the “charging station” which is a gloried relay with a few electronic smarts).
Popping it open revealed that my plug attachment was shorting out a bit:
I now realize what happened; I had did the stupidest thing last summer and drove away with my car plugged in at home. I had shut the front trunk, and failed to unplug the car in some bit of absent mindedness. The cord got really taught as I was backing up and made a noise that alerted me to stop. It broke the J1772 inlet on my car, which I glued back together.I took a look at the EVSE and it seemed okay, but now I realized I had pulled the power cords out just enough to allow them to still work, but have high resistance.
I just hardwired them directly to the input wires with some electrical twisties.
Welcome to the EV Page of Shame!
The first victim.
This little lovely neighborhood EV was parked in the decided EV spots in the downtown Santa Cruz parking garage. But it was not charging! Shame on you. All the other spots were taken, and people could not charge because you took this spot! Please be courteous. (I would have left a note but I had no paper).
Still working on “Project Hutchinson”. Last saturday I put a coat of stain back on the deck to freshen it up.
I’m working on designing a new master bathroom. I’m hoping to get working on it soon!
