There are a lot of talented people on here. What cool project are you working on that isn't painting minis?

Doing a partial basement remodel. Floors throughout, some wall stuff, and a complete laundry/utility room overhaul. Some new plumbing and refeeding electrical for a number of rooms.
Once it gets a bit warmer I'll be putting new windows in one of our rooms and fixing up some siding.

I started a PnP Dune but got busy during; I've got it all complete except the board and storm marker.

My hobbies (music, games) have taken a backseat to home maintenance stuff in the past year or so. I'm pretty handy and know how (or can learn) most of the stuff I need to do with the house, and I can even do it well. It's great when it's all done, but I really don't enjoy the process all that much. I'm hoping by late summer all the major things are done because I want my free time back.

Trying to grok how laser cutters work, since I've learned that the public library in st Paul has a laser cutter and 3d printer for public use.

I want to make a few tokens and maybe some character stuff for Destroy all Monsters! that would cost me an arm and a leg to have Litko make for me.

I'm crowdfunding an illustrated book with rhymes about monsters. I've been working on it with the illustrator for a year and a bit, and it's going quite well, so it's really nice to see the work pay off. It's only available in Danish, but if you want to take a look the link is here:

Having a community laser cutter would be great.

Our library has community services too. The other week I heard two guys who looked kind of neckbeardy and had 300 lbs. of camera gear talking about renting a room for a photography session. Their model walked up, a young lady who had apparently driven down from Ogden, about 60 miles away. I think there may be a sort of weird photography semi-pro thing going on where guys photograph women in exchange for giving them a portfolio of photos.

I know it's lame of me to criticize someone's work, but I get the sense there's a creepy economy of photography with rules I don't quite understand nor want to.

I used to do that. The models and photographer both expand their portfolios. One of the few times in business where both parties have an equitable arrangement without anyone being left in the dust as long as the model doesn't sign over all copyrights to the photos.

Started working on a monograph, which is boring.

Probably going to be starting on floor-to-ceiling bookshelves in the basement.

There was a friend's son, about 20 at the time, who was starting out and did this, but all the sessions were soft porny. He's branched out into other kinds of photography and is starting to get interesting, but it has taken him five years.

Nice. Methods or substance?

My life: TRYING to buy a (this time incredibly expensive because of the area) house again. Leaving Friday to look.

I am in between projects right now, as this is a busy time of year at work. In May, my girlfriend wants to start a vegetable garden in our backyard, and I know that I will be working on that. In late May, I will clear out the ground floor of my house again to put down additional coats of polyurethane on my hardwood floors. I paid a professional to do this last fall, but it became evident that he only did one coat instead of the three that we had discussed.

I'm currently working on the development of my next published game, Red Meridian, which was signed by Grey Fox games in November. It's coming out 2018.

Also working on a few other designs, trying to find a publisher for my real-time dice rolling Street Fighter game.

Not sure if it counts as a project but I'm also doing freelance writing for Ars Technica and working on some reviews for their Ars Cardboard arm. I now write under three different editors (Barnes being one of them), which is interesting.

^Congrats on the new freelance gig. I used to read Arstechnica religiously and post in their forums under a different username but I found their purpose kind of drifted as time went on. Almost always solid content on the front page, though.

​I just finished building a shop. It's not big, only 12' x 20' with 10' ceilings, but it should be fine for me, and it fits in my backyard. All my tools are still in the garage, so I'm sure it'll take me a while to figure out how to arrange everything. I also still need to build a work bench under the window and a work table for the middle of the room.





I started this back in September and had I known how long it would take me to finish doing it myself, I might have hired someone to finish it. Doing remodeling all day as my job, and then coming home and working on my shop in the evenings for the last 5 months has really drained all my energy for doing basically anything. But now it's done, barring some exterior stuff that needs to wait for warmer/dryer weather (painting, concrete "patio").

It's mostly going to be for woodworking, but will also be good for other random projects I start.
I've decided the first project I do will be a Crokinole board. But I have no idea when I will get to start that since the shop was Phase One of my wife's grand remodeling plan. Next is the main bathroom, then the kitchen, then the master bath. At least those should only take 2 weeks each at the most (I just know I'll regret those words).
