Dobbertin Surface Orbiter

This is possibly the most perfect vehicle ever created. An amphibious RV constructed from an old milk tanker trailer. I just... want to park this in my driveway. And stare at it.

From Here I Shall Compose My Manifesto

There comes a time in every man's life when he realizes that the house he provides for his family has, in fact, no room in it where he may keep jars of paint and X-acto knives lying around. Since this house doesn't have a basement, and the garage is just a little chilly/hot in the winter/summer, I used the existing shelves and hanging storage shelves in the garage and attached some studs to them. I bought some fine fake cherry paneling for the inside, and will insulate the walls.

This will give me a 9x9x7 cubish space in which to work on fiddly things, woodshed my guitar, and hang my fishing trophies. Since it's so small, I expect that a small heater and window a/c unit should keep it comfy all year round. I call it my ice fishing shack.

I'm not dead

I know it's been a hella long time since my last post. And I know that all of my faithful readership is wondering just what is going on. Well, it's winter, and that's usually when I do some kind of smaller crafty project, but this winter I've mostly been focusing on improving my guitar skills. But I did just start construction on a studio in the garage, and I have some ideas for gas-powered miniature carnival rides, so something more substantial should be coming soon. In the meantime, please enjoy this picture of Mia as "Last Child on Earth".
