The Build, Day 4

vertical-stand.gifToday, I finalized the plans for the vertical stand. Having no experience making a device that holds a 50-pound mosaic vertical and sturdy during freight transit from Virginia to California, it took a little figuring. The good news is that I think I finally have it. :-) Jeff and I walked through the hardware store bouncing ideas off each other until we came up with a good solution for the problem.

Meghan came over around 6pm, followed shortly by Leslie, Steve and Corbin, then Olivia, Ken and Jeff. It was a great group- they mostly worked on the white plates (and unraveling the mess I made of the plates at the LEGO store yesterday). Can't thank you all enough for your help!

Looks like the piece is almost done. I saved the biggest challenge for last: the Dapper logo's "flower" - a colorful symbol that has very few literal LEGO color translations. The solution? Set the whole flower to be the height of a brick, so it stands out from the rest of the mosaic (thereby also allowing me to use bricks, not plates... with bricks, I can use dark pinks and purples that don't exist as plate colors) Paul revisited an idea I dabbled with a few weeks ago, which was to use transparent colors over various shades of gray. I think that might be a good fix for this as well. Tomorrow, i will complete the "flower" and we'll see where it goes from there.

Also tomorrow: more woodworking (yay! I dig that part.) Just wish I had a shop. My deck is too small...
