Last week was my 30th birthday. To celebrate, Amanda and I went on a camping trip for over a week around NW Texas. We camped at Palo Duro Canyon, Caprock Canyon, and Possum Kingdom. We had a great time, and her parents even came out to Possum Kingdom to camp and celebrate. We had some awesome chili cheeseburgers with Fritos and a very good cookie cake.
This is the first video I have made, and hope to have more featuring the other parks soon.
The Dallas Makerspace had an open house on Saturday. It was really fun and I had a chance to show off a couple of my projects. I took the trash guitar I built using an old speaker cone and an axe handle, the Baxboard, the Arduino Midi Sythesizer, a homemade amp, homemade tube screamer clone pedal, and a Raspberry Pi running the JAMS app which was setup with my keyboard and Baxboard.
There was also a pinball room set up with many of the pinball tables some of the member have restored. This was definitely a hit.
I mounted a panorama I created last year at Big Bend at the Dallas Makerspace last night. I printed it on paper as 12.4″ x 36″ with 2″ borders. I then built a simple frame and wrapped the photo like it was canvas. I’ve tried a few in this way, and it looks good while being inexpensive.
