Get Ready for Lots of Mustache!

laser mustaches

It’s Movember again! For those of you who aren’t aware, Movember raises funds and awareness to combat men’s health issues like prostate and testicular cancer as well as mental health challenges. It encourages men to join the movement by growing a mustache for the 30-days of November.

Luckily for me, I’m not a woman who can grow a mustache, but I believe in the cause and want to support it in my own way. Last year, I made a giant mustache pillow. This year, I have a little more free time in my life, so I’m going to wear a mustache every day (just not on my face). I spent the night at Tech Shop laser cutting more little mustaches then I know what to do with, and we’ll see what happens.

For more inspiration and all sorts of awesome mustache accessories, have a look at my Movember Pinterest board. And get ready for 30 days of mustache spamming :-)

Tiny Chairs

Posted on Aug 17, 2013 in Projects, Tech Shop, Tiny Dorms

Dorm chair 1 800I have a project in the works that has to do with building a 1/12 scale dorm room. There’s something inspiring about working with the blank slate of a dorm room. And since I can’t go back to my freshman year of college, I’m doing it in miniature instead. I started with the chair because I thought it would be the most difficult piece of furniture to produce. And here it is! Complete with terrifying rock-back feature – you know what I’m talking about former dorm-dwellers.

It was designed in Autodesk Inventor, vectorized, and laser cut from beautiful 1/8 inch cherry that Gad introduced me to at Techshop.

Seriously, TechShop makes me so happy.
