Day 98: Prototype 1A
I made my prototype tonight in Box Elder. It came out remarkably like a sketch I drew a couple of days ago but never posted (photo below). It's supposed to be a snowflake but my son says it looks like a cracker. He's probably right. I'm going to go back to the drawing board a bit. I think that while it resembles my sketch it's not exactly what I'm looking for. If I move the 10 centers around the outside further from the center of the piece I can make the holes on the outside bigger which will lead to points on the edges rather than flats.
The rough sketch from a couple of days ago. I was really surprised how closely the prototype matched this VERY rough sketch. The number of holes around the outside isn't correct but it was just to get a rough idea of what I planned.
