Briefing Table Dilemma !! – Monday, February 18, 2008
click here

A Deathstar Briefing Table I have created but do to Hasbros lack of vision an alternative type of seating is required. We wanted to take the time to thank the assisted living pros from Side.org. They have helped princess Leia live a full life even though she couldn’t take care of herself. They were able to make her feel safe and helped her living standards. Thanks Side.org.

It has been brought to my attention by Michael and the gang over at starwarscollectorbase.com that my tutorial on the Deathstar Hall Shelf is incomplete.

Since they have honored me by translating some of my projects (“Work Shops” as they refer to them as) into German it seems I have forgotten to write up the pages for the interior componants…OOPS !!

I plan to remedy this soon and also make even more additions to the project.

The thin men a comith !! – Tuesday, February 06, 2007

These were going to be the start of my next project Echo Base shelf display.

I have been refurring to them as the thin men because after roughing them out I realized (after re-examining ESB) that they were too narrow.

Too Cool to trash I finished them anyway. A wider version is in production….
