    Good idea, buying things is much easier.

    Nynny, what the hell is "Alliance Charter Elementary?" Admit it, you looked up the schools in the NJSD and found that one and had to locate it on a map to take your picture there.

    Contrary to your disenchanted world view I am quite aware of our hometown schools. I actually tried to enroll my son in Alliance, but we got on a waiting list longer than the class size so it never happened. It's housed in Roosevelt and they share a principal.

    I'm not even sure charter schools were a thing when I last lived there.

    In fact it was not, so I guess you're in the clear. You should try to be a more well informed voter.

    I always start with a stud finder, because I lack confidence.

    I've been on the fence for awhile, but clearly I need a 3-D printer now.

    I want those......wait, I bet I can make that easy

    So I saw those Wyrmwood Tiles on kickstarter a while back. Naturally I thought "Hey Self, you NEED these now" After I started to add up a few sets of them in fun wood types I shit myself at the cost. Again....."Hey Self, I bet you could make those yourself WAY cheaper"

    GAME ON......

    These are my first test run on pine and as always there were some kinks to work out.


    Worked out a few changes and pulled the trigger on some fun wood (insert joke here) (insert "insert" joke here)

    This was the first run of our actual woods. Mostly worked but I need to come up with something different for the rolling tiles. The screws for the magnets stick out and I am worried that the foam or leather that I put on the bottom may still show a lump from them.

    finish applied to some of them.


    Next I need to cut the cork for the back side coasters and what ever I plan to use for the bottom of the rolling trays.





    Also......This project got WAY more expensive then I though after buying all the tooling and parts. I may have been better just getting the tiles from Wyrmwood.

    What game are those for? Regardless, the tiles look amazing, awesome job. I'm jealous and I don't even know what they're used for.
