About Me

I have been a developer for 14 years programming in Java, Groovy, Python, C#, C and several other languages. I currently work for The Babcock and Wilcox Corporation where I develop boring Enterprise Technology, specifically creating and managing customizations to a large proprietary J2EE application. In my spare time however, I work on all sorts of projects using many technologies from writing C for AVR microcontrollers to Java web based applications for automating my home. This blog is a way for me to show off my projects and how I built them.

Alright… Now the real fun begins. Carving the pooh tree is going to be an interesting challenge. Here you can see I started the tree trunk.

So I got bored of carving just tree trunks and decided to play around with carving the hill and tree roots around pooh’s house. I’ve just stated and look at all the polystyrene fragments! This is going to be messy good fun.

Another angle of the Pooh hill beginning to take shape.

The tree roots are beginning to show.

I cannot stress how messy this is. If you try a project like this be sure to keep a vacume handy. The polystyrene doesn’t fly around to much, but it sticks to everything, including you!

I kept a picture handy as I carved the tree out. I’m not a great artist, but it’s not to hard to make the tree roots look somewhat like the picture.

I didn’t have to be to super percise with the carving here. Just close enough. All the final details can be worked out when we cover the entire tree, roots, and hill with clay.

Here I am carving out the details of the tree.

Think, think, think.

Here you can begin to see the other side of the tree taking shape.
