These are projects that are merely for fun, or just to see if I could. Building things is my #1 hobby, and these are some of the interesting things I have created over the years. The links on the right will provide more details about each one. They are in no specific order. Please visit often for project updates. If you have a project you’d like me to tackle, please let me know.
