This weekend past, my wife and kids were out of town, so I had a bit of a hobby weekend (when not working on painting a bathroom, laying brick, or other household chores that seem to accumulate).
Previous years when faced with such weekends, I have built and painted a Tau platoon, and built an IG platoon twice the size of the Tau one (and which consequently I am still laboriously painting).
This year I worked mostly on a project which is still under wraps, and few other odds and ends. I do not seem to have completed anything, and certainly not all the projects I wished to, so it seems a bit frustrating.
I did get a little bit of work done on an idea which has been percolating around in my brain for a while.
At work, we have a Keurig coffee machine (actually right outside my door) and the pods come in these boxes.
Further, the boxes are made from fairly flimsy cardboard, and so not very suitable for a finished building. I plan to use just the shape of this box, but replace all vertical surfaces with foam-core cut to be slightly narrower than the boxes. So much for workplace recycling!
I used our Silhouette Cameo, a computer controlled cutter, to make some bitz and templates for the building, which was very interesting, and certainly more exact than anything I could cut with a knife. (as proven earlier that same day when I mangled some foamcore).
Anyway, that is what I did this weekend, what about you?
