giant box as the outer mold the guitar mass will sit in and be covered withcreated with sketchup tools I got to try out this evening besides just getting the hang of orbiting around the working area.
Was pleasantly surprised how easy it is to use the tape measure along with scale to resize whole objects.
Not having to connect dots one by one in order to trace lines was the perfect end to a relaxing evening of biking to and from the Berkeley Marina, lentil soup, Bill Evans, Miguel Migs, Jimmy Reed and generally not giving a hoot.
- in designing a space for fungus to grow I realized that initially, designing with cardboard and plastic bags, it would be difficult to grow a single structure of mycelium, so I'm considering growing two separate panels, top and bottom, with the top allowed to overhang the bottom and lock to the bottom, as a typical case would. First, just trying to mimic an actual case, no hinges or anything. I used Sketchup to design a 3d model
Last Sunday I carried my Ibanez Artcore semi-hollow sexy body to my Blues class in downtown Berkeley.
That mother of a guitar and its case is heavy, and it sucks to carry it.
I don't care to get a lighter guitar necessarily, but a case on the other hand I think could make the case lighter, and even add an artisanal touch to a case.
What is usually a bland and non-flashy thing, sometimes decorated with stickers could be a piece of art in itself, a personal expression.
Inspired by MycoWorks' work, led by Phil Ross, I'm going to set out to construct some stuff from mushrooms and give this thought some life.
A little later I'd like to post an update with a prototype of the mold the mushroom should grown in.
Ken from Counter Culture Labs mentioned some mushroom varieties to try out and some techniques that might improve the structural integrity of the final product.
Write, post, publish, prophet!
