MAKE Flickr Pool Weekly Roundup

‘Twas the week before Christmas, and all through the land, all the makers were sawing and brazing and shaping by hand…

And taking pictures, right? I know all your gift projects are classified TOP SECRET//SI-GAMMA 459-CANOE/TALENT KEYHOLE-LANTERN//NOFORN, but I hope you are remembering, nonetheless, to snap some tasty work-in-progress shots to go along with the inevitable proud trophy pics. And I trust that, the first week of the new year, the MAKE Flickr pool will be exploding with post-Festivus cheer.

Not that we haven’t got some great eye-candy, right now: Johngineer takes pole position, this week—he knows we can’t resist oscilloscope art, especially when it’s seasonal. And then there’s fdecomite, whose lovely polyhedron models turn up here again and again, and who has just produced this handy (and beautiful) visual index of those models. Finally, was glad to see Rob Cruickshank coming out from behind the camera for his self-portrait, avec soldering iron. Would love to see more makers doing likewise!
