Summer is Awesome!

All fun and no work makes Dave a lazy......


Hey everyone. I hope you all had an amazing summer (or whatever happens in the southern hemisphere at this time of year). I know I did. But too much fun can make a person lazy and do horrible things like not update their blogs for long stretches. Well summer's almost over and it's time to get back to work! Well, I haven't exactly been sitting around in flip-flops and bad Aviator shades this whole time.

One big project has been converting my basement (which previously resembled something that would make a hoarder sad) into a half decent woodworking shop.


Workshop Before - Depressing...
Workshop After - Ahhhh!
You see, I have been making electronic gizmos for many years. But when it came time to build enclosures for these projects, my efforts have been.....umm.....lacking.

Exhibit A - Brownie pan MacGyver
Exhibit B - I don't need no stinkin' case!
Exhibit C - Oh the humanity!!

Hopefully from this point forward, my projects will be surrounded by nothing but the beauty of wood and old-world craftsmanship (or at least look slightly less crappy). So expect some articles on this.

I have also been working hard on the NaV-1 Arduino synth project. I'm in the middle of programming a menu system and adding an EEPROM to the circuit so you can edit and save multiple patches. I'll be posting this tutorial soon.

So summer is officially over and it's time to get back to business with newfound determination and......What's that....Well I guess one more round of Frisbee Golf won't hurt anyone....
