Joining Encoded Designs

Just under a week ago I got back from an eventful and fun Gencon 2015. While I was there I wore multiple hats, and kilts, while working tech support for the MCG booth, meeting with the line developers for various writing projects I’m working on, and catching  up with friends […]

Getting Some Writing Done

I posted on facebook a few days ago about a bunch of projects I’ve completed recently in my life as a web designer. Things I’ve created that have been keeping me busy these last few months, and thus really bad about keeping up with communicating with people. – (Site […]

Building Strong, Sturdy Book Crates For Modular Bookcases

I’ve also got a fair amount of books – gaming books, graphic novels, old textbooks, novels, and even a bunch of boardgames of various sizes. These things are all a frigging pain to move around. I’ve got some bookcases, and I’ve built more than my fair share of cinder block bookshelves, but I have always wanted something more modular that I can just grab and move when my space changes or I decide to rearrange my office.
