I love building things and I have an insatiable curiosity for finding out how things are made.  For instance I think most people do not have any idea what hydroforming or broaching is let alone how they work.  If you want to see videos of manufacturing processes and a few virtual factory tours I recommend you visit and check out their “How Everyday Things are Made”  section and watch a video about how jelly beans are made or how Boeing assembles a 777.

Too many projects at one time sound familiar to anyone?  Well, that is my biggest problem.  I have not even finished all the postings for projects I have finished and I am starting another major project, the “Build a Bed” project.  Below you can see my initial concept  sketch.

I am in the middle of building a new computer and sifting through my old computer parts trying to decide what is useful and what has outlived it’s usefulness.  I am hoping that I will have enough spare parts that I can build a Mythtv box to try to hook up to my television and experiment with.  If you don’t see any new postings for a while it means that I didn’t fare so well in this project.
