Make: Eddie Bot

Some months ago, I ran across a robot that I thought looked cool that would be fun to paint. The name of the artist is Paul Braddock. Initially I found him here. But, it’s a resin model that isn’t available and costs $170 for the model, which was more than Read more…

Make: Muppet 911!

This story, like many good stories, starts with an unexpected find. Christina texted me one day back at the end of May: If your awesome partner ever asks if you need a hand puppet in your life and it’s a gosh danged Muppet, the answer is yes! She found this Read more…

Make: DLM Sign!

In The Beginning… I recently decided I wanted to make my own LED sign. But, that only make sense with some background. During my senior year of college, I was placed on a senior project team. We worked with a mentor to complete a project in our final semester. Pretty Read more…

This post isn’t about a particular project, rather it’s a summary post about a few smaller projects that I’ve been working on that didn’t seem worth individual posts per project. The first project was a second batch of my little robots from a prior project. I had given a few Read more…

Make: RPG NPC Generator – Collaboration

This is a fun project because I got to build something with a collaborator and that collaborator is my daughter, Laurel Mossor! Laurel is completing her Master’s degree in Social Work (“with a concentration in practice and leadership with communities and organizations”!!) from Portland State University. She’s also has played Read more…

Make: Nerf Pistol Repaint

A few months ago I came upon a group of folks on the Internet who enjoyed painting Nerf pistols to make them more realistic or interesting. There is also a whole subset who are focused on increasing the power and just basically improving their performance, but this is just about Read more…
