Rethinking some things... The Andon saga continues

Happy Monday!

When you are spending more time creating the instructions for a file than it actually took to design a file, you may need to rethink the design. LOL

Finally finished the Andon construction instructions. Whew! That was fun. LOL

If you ever need me to go over your instructions - let me know. I used to be a whiz at creating step by step tutorials.
p.s. it shouldn’t hurt your creative brain.

LOL…it’s more about turning the plans into 3-D models. I spend a lot of time making it look right.

It looks like your instruction writing abilities are as top notch as your design abilities! I wish all digital file creators did such a good job.

PS: couldn’t resist, had to buy the file. Thanks!

Thank you!! I hope they are descriptive enough. My degree in graphic design helps to make them look ok, it’s the actual instructions I hope are understandable. Lol Thank you for buying it! Let me know if something doesn’t make sense when building it.

The instructions LOOK good at least! If you ever need a tester, let me know!

Nice design. I just purchased it because of your excellent written instructions. Writing good instructions is difficult because they are information dense and any deficiencies are easy to see. This is why there is a proliferation of long YouTube videos where the information could be more efficiently conveyed in one or two pages of written documentation that could be read and understood in a fraction of time it takes to glean the information from a video. Creating written documentation seems to be a forbidden transition for many people.

For the non-chemistry geeks, a forbidden transition is an excited state of an atom, molecule or nucleus that is forbidden by some selection rule, but can still proceed more slowly when other selection rules are taken into account, e.g. phosphorescence. The Etsy page of designvh619 is Excited Atom Designs. Therefore, his written documentation will shine on!

Happy Holidays!

I cut some boxes out of cedar planks and since cedar is just not too forgiving, can’t start smacking it with a rubber mallet, I made the kerf 0, so I have been been on a glue kick recently.

I am starting to use glue more cause some of the designs I have just won’t look good without it. I will use this power judiciously. :rofl:
