I built a Lego version of my rolling toolbox. I got the inspiration from this amazing build:

3D Printed Numbers For My MailBox

When we got new mailboxes we were supposed to provide our own numbers. Rather than buy some boring old stickers, I wanted something different.

So I used 123d Design to make the STL file. Then I printed the numbers in ABS on my modified OneUp 3D printer. To attach the numbers to the box, I cleaned the surface with rubbing alcohol then used super glue to attach the numbers.

I finished the mirror I started in my review of Woodpeckers Delve Square on ToolGuyd. I wasn't sure what to do with the mirror, but my daughter wanted it in her room.

It begins!

We've been waiting for them to replace our street for years, after waiting for so long it's finally a reality.

They're making another pass and holy crap is the house shaking. The dog is barking because she doesn't know whats going on.

Update
OK, we figured out the shaking, is coming from the roller that's flattening the street again not the machine ripping up the pavement.

Man, laminate sheets are a pain to deal with. Sure, they are light, but they are awkward in every other way. Anyway here's my adventures with buying a laminate sheet and a easy no-mess (ok practically no-mess) way to break them down.

After about a year, I finally gathered all the information and pictures I had and posted the building of my son's treehouse bed.  This was one hell of a project, but it was worth it.

I am the only person at home and I swear the last time in went through the kitchen that the blanket was crumpled in a pile.
