Updates

I have a daily habit of working on side projects, and I've come to appreciate the benefits of tracking that habit out in the open. If I'm doing work on a software project, I track that on GitHub. If it's more hands-on, I like to post an update here.

  1. And here's the finished project: A book press! I'm interested in making my own notebooks, and this should help to get me started.

    Not the greatest design, and definitely not very convenient to use, but it should be enough to experiment. If bookbinding turns into a thing for me, I can come up with something better.

  2. When you need semi-finished material for a woodworking project, but can't really cut or sand wood in your workshop: Cutting boards!

    Those are pretty cheap and seemingly not made from the best wood (not that I know a lot about wood), but they'll do.

  3. I moved my 3D printer from the workshop to my apartment. That will give me some more flexibility when iterating on a design (usually, I'm only at the workshop on weekends).

  4. The Atom feed links for these updates are still broken. I'm very sorry! This shouldn't be that hard to fix, but I'm faced with mystery problems in several parts of the stack I'm using to build/host this site (Zola and Netlify, to be specific).

    Currently contemplating solutions. I have so many better things to do than build a custom backend for this website, but it is so tempting...

  5. I noticed that these updates show up in the (Atom) news feed, but they link to an error page. Sorry! I'm still working on the updates feature and will hopefully resolve this problem soon.
