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.
Current Mood: geeky

Pingu is extra classy. You can tell by the top hat. And the sparkles.

Do you remember when you described that really awesome, mind-blowing kiss. I would just like you to know that I have often remembered and relied upon that paragraph.

You would do well in taking your own advice. Saw makes the remark to John, ““Several of the other issues you brought up seemed to be presented with some ignorance and oversimplification” with no facts to back it up and what am I supposed to do, just let it slide.

is that all endgrain glued together? and what are you using to cut the zelda board, cause it looks like your idea requires the thinnest saw blade ever or a laser cutter

So, to get started, Billie stood in front of the computer in the kitchen, closed her eyes and counted to twenty while Oliver, at a laptop in the living room and Joseph in his house waddled off into other Club Penguin rooms to hide.

I have seen an adolescent thoroughbred galloping three-legged, lurching through the churning butts of the others, not even feeling the clods of mud flung into his eyes, his shattered leg dangling uselessly, while his desperate jockey tugs with puny arms at his mouth.

We got home, dumped our backpacks on the living room floor, and headed to bed. 17 hours from start to finish, but we made it.
