I can’t believe it took me this long to make an Iron Man Robot Recipe. Two cans, a few milled parts, and a nice powder coat paint job. I might make a couple more of these, probably put some lights inside.

Jig for Glueing

Friday, May 5th, 2017

Untitled

I’ve done some scrap plywood glue ups in the past. And I’ve been happy with the results after they’ve been turned or milled. But glueing them at an angle has always a bit tricky. So I made a jig.

All from scrap MDF, this guy lets me adjust the angel of the slant. I hope it helps me experiment a lot more with this technique.
