We had/will/did have our time travelers halloween party on Saturday night. It was simply great! Everyone had a ton of fun showing off their awesome costumes, arguing over which interpretation of primer was correct, and whether or not we could have jumpstarted civilisation armed only with the content of our pockets! In the afternoon we did workshops on essential time traveler skills, such as how to make fire without matches, uses of a towel, and must-have survival kits for chrononauts of all ages. Nat brought in something we didn’t think of, a series of antidotes for everything from Bubonic plague to leprosy. (Very handy!) We also did our traditional watermelon carving again this year, and had a ball.
We will have seen you then!
So, this week’s project is an awesome minimalistic guitar built by David (Shig).
He used an ordinary piece of wood that was laying around, added a bridge, plus tensioning hardware made out of bolts found entirely at the space.
He added a set of strings and an acoustic pickup he got, and voila. Electric guitar!
