I don’t know what the minotaur is selling, but I do know you don’t make fun of his pink chevron tent. Day 3 of #The100DayProject/#100DaysInPaperTown, and I sidetracked from working on the market cross to put together a trial tree. It needs a little tweaking but overall looks good. It’ll turn up later in the elven houses. Meanwhile, I scaled the tents back up to their proper size, printed a few, then decided to make them square since the longer cross-beams were too long to stay stable.

The first real project: an outdoor market, with a market cross🔗 building a bit like Wymondham’s. Installing the new aluminum blade carrier turned out to be very simple; I eyeballed it until it looked like the old Silhouette one, and the first test cut looked great. It cut a little more deeply into the carrier mat than it needed to, so I dialed it back a smidge and that was it.

There’s an annual Instagram event called #The100DayProject. Pretty simple: for 100 days starting April 4, do something creative and post it to Instagram. I’m not thrilled about the IG part, because I don’t have a mobile device with an adequate camera so I have to go through contortions to get things onto IG, but I didn’t pick it. My chosen project is paper terrain: #100DaysInPaperTown. Inspired by things like SVGCuts’ ridiculously detailed paper houses, instead of being print-and-cut they’re built up from layers of pre-colored paper.
