Welcome to Brad's online memory archives.


Though it didn’t make my list, I have always wanted to assemble one of those 3-D wood puzzles that make animals or dinosaurs. But I’ve never taken the time to do it. On Saturday, when I was with Daniel for the Pokemon match, I browsed the hobby store we were in and decided to buy one thing. It was hard, because I liked almost everything there. But I ended up getting a 3-D wood puzzle of a fish.

Yesterday I put it together. It wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be, but it took a while because the way the pieces were numbered was confusing. Lauren helped by punching the pre-cut pieces from the boards, and by taking art shots of me working:

Don't I look like some serious wood artisan or something?

The completed puzzle is cool. Except there isn’t really any practical use for it. Maybe it would be a good theft deterrent: I could leave it on the floor and thieves would trip over it in the night.

So pretty...

    I say we dip it in paint, or see if it will float in the neighbor’s pool! I was amazed at how thoroughly you followed those crazy directions. Everyone should see a picture of those. You are far more patient than I.

    I love it!! It’s really cool looking! I think it would make a lovely decoration in your home….course they may not let you on the plane with it……what with its
    multi-weapon contraption look and all.

    How long did it take you to assemble?

    See along with me:

    That looks like it would burn nicely.

    • Lloyd

      Was that too harsh? rereading it, it sounds like it might be too harsh. What do you think?

      • Brad

        Hehe… not harsh. I thought about burning it too – all those small pieces and air pockets would make a bright burn.

    • Peggy

      (not too harsh–it’s funny—well, it’s funny as long as you have a sense of humor……& way to go giving such practical advice!)

  4. Carol

    It is indeed beautious…and needs painting…with many bright colors…before burning.

    It has an uncanny resemblance to the alien in the movie Super 8 !
