Bubble Engineering, Continued


I have been taking woodworking class at a local community center. Four weeks in, and I am 2/3 way to finishing my first ever (tiny) bench. This class makes me realize just how heavy "real" wood feels, and to NEVER again complain about how IKEA furniture is difficult to assemble. I thank you, IKEA! But most importantly, I love all the different, handmade jigs available to help you perform specific tasks more efficiently and accurately on the machines. Totally inspired: with simple material from Home Depot, I devised and hand made a jig to help me score crease lines. Oh, and I also laser-cut a special scoring guide for my Bubbles. Mmm... Laser! High tech meets low tech.
