    Very impressive work, everyone.

    What have I made? Well, lessee...

    In the late 80's I made music:

    In the late 2000s, I made Photoshops:

    Last Christmas, I made ornaments:

    And now, I'm getting into making coin rings:

    My latest origami workshop was last month for a high school assembly in NE Houston. I don't have photos of that, but here are some I dug up, where photos were published in the Houston Chronicle of neighborhood youth in Fourth Ward:

    Not artistic by any means outside of music. But I was getting tired of shoes all around the entrance from our garage, so went out on a mission to make a shoe cubby thing. Looked at pinterest and such, found some really nice looking ones beyond my skill, so went really basic. square with shelves. lol. Didn't want to spend a pile on wood, so went with some sanded pine boards I found and decided to stain them a more cherry color. I don't have the pics here, but it ended up looking better than expected (I HATE and am awful at painting/staining).

    Besides that, last thing I've built myself was a few permanent target stands for target shooting, but that was all rough cut stuff.

    I know that place. I lived in Sacramento from 81 to 98. Specifically, in the N. Highlands/Carmicheal region just west of Antelope Blvd.

    Wait, did you say mid-town? I don't remember that complex in mid-town. Must be a different one.

    It wouldn't have been there in 1981 through 1998. It's just being built, now.

    It takes up the entire block bordered by Q, R, 20th, and 21st Streets.
