Hey gang, lots going on in our lives as usual – we’re trying to arrange moving house sometime soon so we can be closer to the CBD and spend less time on the train, but it’s not easy! The combination of needing to find time to actually LOOK at houses, and minimising all the junk we have accumulated at home = busy, busy, busy.

I thought instead of more rattling on about what we’ve been up to I’d share this little bit of awesome that I just saw on the internet today

Dani and I have plans on paper to make a powder coating booth in the near future, and seeing simple things like this really inspires me. I have lots of ideas and theories about how design and manufacturing can survive in this modern world – and this concept of simple machines that perform tasks that were traditionally ‘industrial’ is right on the money, people need to be able to “make” what they dream up and not have the lack of factories and skill mean that great ideas just dissolve away.

Anyhoo, that’s enough semantics… enjoy the pictures! (i’ll post back about this if/when I ever build something similar myself)
