Cartwheels in the Cyr Wheel

Just working on learning. Progressing slowly, but getting a bit better because I have a few days off!

Driveway Sign: Monkey Playground

I playfully call my house the “Monkey Playground”. Why? Why not! Well, okay, I’m sort of monkey like since I like climbing around on lots of things. A little known fact about me: my 2004 Subaru Impreza WRX STi had a sticker on the side that said “Monkey *” (that last symbol was a star, not an asterisk). I thought it was funny — sort of like an aviator call sign for the pilot. The new sign, freshly painted: This is my first stencil. Here’s how I made it: * Find an image on the internet to make a stencil... [read more]

New pull up bar

Using the plasma cutter to make stuff… I wanted a new pull-up bar for my house. The old one looked tacky…but how can anything be tacky around your own house if you put it there? Here’s some shapes cut out of metal: Pieces setup for welding: Ugly pullup bar removed: Hanging on the wheel (as seen through the eyes of a lyra. And in this picture you can see how the top right of the lyra wasn’t quite as circular as I wanted…)

Plug In America

A few iPhone pictures of my car at Plug In America’s party from a few months ago. Hanging out in SF: Parked inside the winery on Treasure Island:


Hugalopes! These things are awesome! They are basically plush lego toys that you can wear on your head as a hat. And, when you get tired of how it looks, change it up with some new accessories! I met one of the creators, Jazz, and I was instantly interested in getting a few for myself. He is kick starting the company, and needs help. Please help them out by pledging something, and in return you can get one of the first batches of the fuzzy little friends.

Still trying to learn the cyr

I still have trouble with basic spinning/waltzing. I’m not really sure what I’m doing wrong. I’ll need to post up some videos of me failing and ask for advice on the internets. Here’s me doing one footed for a bit:

Cube Hanger

I needed somewhere better t hang my cube when I wasn’t using it. So, I made a cube hanger! I used the plasma cutter to cut some pieces of 3/16’ish steel plate (from the scrap yard): Cut out: I TIG welded on some 1.5″ pipe at a 45 angle: Cleaned it up, and powder coated it flat black: Bolted it to my beam (it is super strong!): And hang the cube! It is a little close to the wall, but out of the way. It is kind of fun to sit in it, so I’ll probably whip up another one... [read more]
