Simba Chairs

I stumbled across this website in one of the Facebook groups I joined (I don’t remember which one) and purchased the plans for the Simba chair.

I am returning to MakerCave page to document my projects. Much has happened since my last post. The passing of my wife, Jill, has been a particularly devastating change.

In her memory, I had 3D-scanned a model of a ceramic Angel her mother had given her for her birthday. My intention is to 3D-print this hollowed-out model, use them as mini urns for her ashes and then travel around the world to the places where Jill loved and wanted to visit and leave her ashes.

Ready to print

Yesterday I finished modifying the model, adding a fill hole in the bottom of the model for the ashes and an eye at the top of the model to hang the urn.


Then I printed the new model on the Anycubic Photon S resin printer.

Final result

I installed the second shelf lift. This one is for my belt and disc sander. Two power tools off the floor…

With the help of Nick Dodson, the electrician we use at the Amphitheater, I made up an quad box extension cord from my 240-volt service, splitting the 240-volt service into two 120-volt dedicated circuits.

With the FSL Muse Laser Cutter, I created mounting plates for my Ridgid battery chargers on the IKEA Skadis peg board. Actually, I used this as an opportunity to get David, my helper, to figure out how to design custom items to meet one’s specific needs. I tried to teach David how to use a calipers and SketchUp to create a drawing. However…

We ran into some mis-measurement issues. Not once…

But twice before getting it right.

I lost a cordless drill today. It did last sixteen years, so I got some use from it.

The Stacker 500 3D printer was put to work today. The poop bag holder went missing some time ago and decided to print a replacement.
