I just recently finished my Space Invaders cutting boards, and I have to say, they turned out awesome. I don't have my digital camera with me right now, so I can't post a picture just yet, but they are seriously sweet (and I made an extra one to sell, so let me know if anyone's interested). So now that I have finished that project, I am about to start on the next thing, which is aTriforce cutting board. So here are my current plans:


So I have one question for all the Zelda geeks out there (and anyone else that might have an opinion). In the original Legend of Zelda game, thetriforce is a right triangle (as in a 45,45,90 triangle) made up of four smaller right triangles (or I guess technically three smaller right triangles and one right-triangular void). In every other Zelda game, comic, bad cartoon, t-shirt, tattoo, etc. that I have ever seen, the triforce is an equilateral triangle. So the obvious question is, which one do I use? My natural inclination is to go with the equilateral triangles, because that is by far the most common version, but I could see an argument for the original as well. Either way, it's gonna be rad to the max for sure, and I'll probably make an extra one of those, too, so speak up if it turns out that this is the one thing that you feel has been missing from your life.

I think equilateral is the way to go. It's way more common and aesthetically appealing. I can't even find a picture of the triforce from the original game to compare, but definitely equilateral.

I'd definitely go equilateral. It's sort of the way to be.

And being that you're making more board designs and extras of those boards...
Is there any chance you'd end up possibly selling some of these extras?
captn_sideburnscaptn_sideburns on March 5th, 2008 12:27 am (UTC)
I would definitely be willing to sell some of these boards. If you really are interested, contact me at cameron at 1337motif dot com.

A Zelda themed cutting board is not the one thing that has been missing from my life. It IS however, the one thing that has been missing from my boyfriend's life and I would LOVE to purchase one for him. Please, please, please. You can get in touch with me at playful dot pixie at gmail dot com. Please do.
 Ariana Aelebaeresilverariana on March 5th, 2008 03:54 am (UTC)
How much might you be selling a Zelda one for? Because I know of about 4 people (myself included) that would be interested :) If not here, i can be mailed at cj_brotherton at hotmail dot com. Thankee!
louiscollins on March 5th, 2008 05:41 am (UTC)
these are fantastic
what did you use to put the pieces together? i mean are they glued or what?
captn_sideburnscaptn_sideburns on March 5th, 2008 05:55 pm (UTC)
Thanks for the positive feedback! The pieces are glued. I used Titebond III, which is a waterproof glue that is FDA approved for indirect food contact.

French mosaics
You should tell Invader about your cutting boards; he's the French artist who puts tile mosaics up all over the world.

captn_sideburnscaptn_sideburns on March 21st, 2008 02:52 am (UTC)
Sorry for the delay in responding to this. I've been out of town. I would definitely make and sell you one of these. Shoot me an e-mail if you want more details. cameron at 1337motif dot com.

Triforce Structure
Based on the title screen, it looks more like a equilateral triangle than a right triangle: www.consoleclassix.com/Xtreme-Zelda.html
