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 built a big clock using an old speaker part I had. I used the other one a couple years ago to make a junk guitar. I laser cut the front out of 1/4″ frosted acrylic using the laser cutter at the 10bitworks makerspace in San Antonio.
