It’s been a while since my first posting. Nothing worth showing since then… It has been mostly experimenting and prototyping for future projects.
However, I am very happy on how this turned out.
Carla, is a friend’s daughter. She was 1 year old yesterday and we prepared this for her. ‘El futur és teu’ means ‘The future is yours’ in catalan (the language that we speak NE Spain, in Barcelona and surrounding regions). This was the first thing I told my daughter when she was born and is something that I haven’t said aloud since then. I thought it would make it a special gift for Carla and her parents.
‘Carla, El futur és teu’
And the LED on, with 3050 strips, for a dimmed lighted atmosphere in case a night visit to Carla’s room is required:
Painted with airbrush and waxed frame. If I planned to repeat a similar design, I would concentrate on the joinery, as I completely winged this with butt joints and glue. It could have been much nicer and systematic finish… but I put all the effort in the time available in the design and finish, not the structural aspect.
Hope that you enjoy it.
