For many years, we’ve made these individual trophies for the FIRST Lego League team, so that each member can have a memento of the real trophies we won. These cost about $5 each when ordering bricks from Bricklink. The site that originally hosted the build instructions has gone offline, so I’m reposting them here. If you know who I can credit, please let me know!
Even though I’ve added some content, I haven’t actually “posted” to this site since 2011. In the past I created a static “page” for anything interesting I put here, then a simple “post” to draw attention to it. A “post” has a date associated, and is the basis for a “blog”, which this site really isn’t anymore.
Anyway, since I’ve been adding stuff, I might as well create a post to lead you to it apotheke-zag.de. Cub scout pinewood derby time is upon us again, so I’ve put up some information about the cars my kids and I have made. Take a look at the project page!
One thing Geocaching.com doesn’t make easy is finding the location of archived caches. I grabbed my whole history of pocket query files (back to April 2004) and built a GPX file containing all archive caches I could get my hands on. The map below shows up to 50 miles from Peoria, but my data is most complete within 30 miles of Peoria.

We recently bought a couple of recreational kayaks, and needed a way to store them. In order to safely and economically store them, I built some racks.
Take a look at the project page for more details.
I haven’t posted anything in quite a while, but at least I’ve got something done. Mia’s bed is finished!
For more information, see the project page.
A fairly quick project I just finished was a “cutting table” for Dusty. I got to actually put some new woodworking techniques to use and had a good time working on it.
It only cost about $50 to build, but it’s very sturdy and should hold up pretty well. View the project page for more details.
