Here's one of the recent projects I have been working on at the lab.  I found the design for this treasure chest, with working lock, on thingiverse.  After I made one, I liked it so much I decided to make another, to give to my tweenage niece for her birthday.

I called my congresswoman.  Have you?
Congress is voting on a critical amendment that would curb the NSA's surveillance of the Internet.

Don't let congress get away with the "Fake" reform they're trying to pass.  Tell them you want real reform.
It’s time for #RealSurveillanceReform. Join me in asking the Senate to fix the loophole in the USA FREEDOM Act and end bulk data collection once and for all. https://takeaction.withgoogle.com/gg/USAFreedomAct

This morning, my mother and I braved freezing rain and sleet on a ~2 mile hike to find one of the oldest active caches in the world, Beverly. Only 2 older caches are still active, one in Kansas, and the other in Oregon.

GC28 was originally hidden on May 13th, 2000, just 10 days after the famous "Original Stash". Nearly 15 years later, it is still active, and available to find in the NW suburbs of Chicago.

Made this one last year, too. From a fully rational point of view, it's a ammo can in the woods. Like thousands of other caches. But I enjoyed it very much anyway, too. :-)

I made these small treasure chests recently at my local makerspace, the QC-Colab.  They are made from laser cut 1/8" birch plywood, with some gold leaf paint accenting the stained wood.  The box is lined with velvet paper.

Funny, using the laser to etch the name hadn't occurred to me.  It's obvious when you explain it.  Thanks!
