For Christmas Kami got me the first piece of my new project, a barrel for an AR-15. My long-time friend from High School (Marc) recently moved to Walla Walla, WA. We spent New Years with he and his family and had a really great time. We looked at a ton of options and items for the build. I’ve made a tentative list of parts with links to the sites. I’m pretty excited.

This week I received the lower receiver that I picked. It’s interesting because it is almost completely made from a polymer (super strong plastic). Here’s a picture of what I have so far. Marc got me the magazine and a box of ammo. Yeah!!


Dungeons of D&D

We have yet another project.  This one involves building 3 dimensional dungeons for our games.  We found a really cool site a little while back that sells incredible dungeon pieces.  However, we don’t have a lot of extra money laying around and they are pretty expensive.  We were pretty sure that we could do something similar and then I was talking to my brother Shaun.  He had purchase some mold from another site a while ago.  So I looked it up and there was a lot of information on making castings and some on making your own molds.

When Adam came over for Thanksgiving he brought some silicone mold material with him that my Dad had.  Jake and I poured a mold this weekend and yesterday did our first plaster casts.  They turned out really nice.  I even painted the first set last night.  Here are some pictures.  When we have more of them, we’ll put them together to make a small dungeon and I’ll post more pictures.

I found some motivation yesterday from Alex.  He sent me a link to this room.  This is the new plan for the bedroom downstairs.  It was going to be a fish project room but I think this is a much better plan.  I hope we can pull it off.  I finished the electrical in that room today.  Now I need to work on the electrical in the family room.  Then we will be ready for sheet rock.

Back to the room design.  I think the hardest part is going to be the table.  We would like it to either convert into a bed or to break down easily enough to put a bed in for our guest.  I also want it to be hollow so that we can have a white board with a 1″ grid on it for our D&D and Star Wars games.

I think it should turn out quite nice and it will make a great place to play games.
