Re: Bow Tie

Well, it may be a simple project as you say... But I think it's a very creative one! Looks very good too! :)
And I bet it will be a conversation starter at the next party :lol:
I kind of wish I had one, but I haven't got the guts to dress up with a wooden bow tie :oops:

Hi! I really struggled with my last project. (Creating a PlexiGlass sign) Engraving the Plexi was relatively straight forward, but cutting it was a real nigthmare. I've heard that one should select the type of acrylic carefully in order to succeed in machining it, but I really didn't expect this res...

Re: LEGO Ninjago LED Lamp

Yes, the magic probe has saved me from countless hours of work. :D I'd grow really tired of many of my projects without it ;)
If your son "forces" you to make one, let me know. I can give you the PCB design so you don't have to make the same mistakes as I did :)
