Bradley GT

Three months of restoration. This is my Bradley GT. I spent 1300 dollars for the car. I spent 3 months fixing it. This was an amazing project because I learned about one of the simplest engines. Not simple to me! lol It took me 30 minutes just to find the starter! I did all the interior, carpeting, re did the dashboard, electronics, windshield installation, engine calibration, brake bleeding, etc…..

Suitcase Puppet Theater

I built a collapsable Puppet stage to fit this awesome suitcase I found. It still has the Key! The puppets were bought at a garage sale years back. They must be from the 60's or 70's. Really excited to perform with this. Everything fits snug in the suitcase, and the set up is quick.
       I sewed all the material for the curtain and pleated material for the top. It is all cut plywood, dyed and varnished.

World's 2nd smallest working train set

This is my Train Set in a Cheese box. They are 1/2 inch pieces cut out of wine cork, painted and embedded with magnets. Servo motor with a cardboard disc guides the train across the the tracks. It's a PWM circuit powered by a 555 timer. The sound comes from a Radio Shack recorder Module.
