For the past decade I've been a software engineer at Google in California.  In my spare time I've created a mélange of open-source software.  I've also built some rather unusual hardware.  On rare occasions I've even been known to write something interesting.

Crossing Thursday, 26 October 2017

A neigbour threw out this piece of scrap plywood. I grabbed it and cut a pair of slots using a tablesaw with its blade mostly retracted.

A large diameter drill bit makes some nice curves.

And a bandsaw cuts out the rough shape.

A bandsaw with a smaller blade cuts out the connecting notches.

Beverly now has a crossing for her wooden trains. I also made a pair of buffers at the same time.

As always, I'm thankful to be able to use Google's workshops for personal projects.
