We went to visit Amanda’s parents for the holiday and they had a new baby calf. It was only a couple days old.
Amanda wanted a compost bin so I built one. It is a simple frame of cedar with hardware cloth fixed to it and just nail gunned together. There is a door on one side for easy access. I don’t expect it to last forever, so it is replaceable instead. We filled it with leaves before I even finished building it.
I designed and 3d printed a simple bracket to use with building a shelf in the bathroom. The shelf is under the mirror and above the sink and will be use for holding small items like my glasses. You can download the stl on thingiverse.
A screwdriver can fit inside to easily tighten the screws.
The board is poplar which I chamfered and painted to match the walls.
Instead of Love2d and Lua, I wanted to try Processing and play around using Java to generate stuff.
It’s pretty neat and has some overlap in basic functionality, but is missing the more game-centric out of the box features, like better touch support, physics, particles, and gamepad, but it does have easier to use camera apis, access to more Java libraries and some cool audio processing capabilities.
I recreated the circle drawing routine in processing and added some code to generate rectangles too.
