I’ve been doing some woodworking lately (making some drawer dividers for Matt) and have a much better understanding of the phrase “necessity is the mother of invention.” As you can imagine, a carpeted studio apartment isn’t the best venue for sawing, carving and otherwise creating woodchips. I’ve fashioned a workbench of sorts from a 2×8, and go out on my little patio to work. I’m getting better at figuring out how to make it all happen, but it’s still not the same as having the shop in the garage. Aside from the people, larger living/working space is one of the things I miss most about Boston.

A friend tipped me off about DorkBot – I’m looking forward to checking out their next meeting in November. I’m hoping to get reinspired and start working on the robot arm again.
