Okay, I finally got a chance to get some pictures together from recent projects...
First, that cart I made the other day. The bottom shelf is intentionally deep, to be able to accommodate a bin that holds taller booze bottles.. and the top shelf is intentionally shallow, to be able to hold pizza peels, pans, etc.
Next up was the shelving project. I helped where she needed it (as did the cat), but this was Pandorra's handiwork. First shot celebrating the new space, and second one with various project bins. You can tell we're burners, they range from grommets and EL wire to thread, buttons, clay, e-textiles, and swarovski crystals....
Next up, Safety Camel! I'd made a scale cutout of a camel design for a camp project, and figured I'd give it a coat of paint.
Then I worked on my limoncello, taking the first batch from Phase 1 into Phase 2 by scooping out the lemon bits, filtering it twice, and then mixing with the sugar syrup I'd made and cooled. For this year's batches, I'm deviating from the plan by letting the lemons spend more time in phase 1 - the result should be a stronger yet smoother meyer lemon taste, but the side effect is that what's left of the lemons has gone albino. The last pic shows a before/after 1 round of filtration, it's hard to really tell in that pic but it really gets out all the little particulates. Woohoo, I'm hoping this year's batches really kick things up a notch.
Pizza science continues, with us continuing to test and use the propane pizza oven and get familiar with the equipment (yeah, that's it). Fortunately our place has street access, so we can get set up really easily. Not looking too shabby, and tastes even better than it looks.
During the gaps and bits of time I found between projects last week I also managed to squirrel away some quality time in the studio, and actually managed to pull together a decent set. Riffing on the word palindrome in honor of the american calendar date format string of dates from 4/11/14 to 4/19/14, I call the set Palindromeda. Feel free to check it out
(free to play, download, share, etc).
Then finally today, my new primary GPU arrived for my computer. It's got a little more than double the horsepower of my old GPU, but will allow me to drive a third display in my computer setup. Well, it drives the primary setup and then my secondary GPU drives the monitors on each side. I use the smaller screens for less intensive stuff like email, chat, twitter, music player, and floating control windows. Forgive the clutter, I shuffled a lot of stuff around quickly to get it plugged in and haven't taken the time to dial things up.
