Finishing touches.


The next show is in a couple weeks. I’m putting in two new pieces I made for the show, which is always fun and always stressful. Sometimes I don’t know if things will work as I imagine them. Sometimes they don’t and I need to spend more time solving the issues created. One of these two new pieces, although appearing very simple, turned out to be a learning experience.

Here’s a few pictures of parts of both new pieces.

The other piece, required a lot of new thinks. Here’s a small detail that nobody will ever see, but had to happen.┬áThis is a little acrylic circle mounted into a model rocket nose cone, so I can deflect air in a toroidal fashion.
