Hello, ggrummer.

Thank you for sharing; those look great! Your documentation is also very thorough and clear. You can definitely tell you’ve put a lot of care into it. I might have to try to find some time to make some of these before the holidays!


Enjoy. I’ve heard good feedback from those who have them. I hope the geekier folks who build them will make their own patterns. I thought maybe an old fashioned radar screen with a missile coming in or maybe a spinning propeller would work well.
