Soon after getting back I watched a bunch of crazy birds and other animals for another half of my family. After getting back from that I had a lot more to do before school started up again.
And then school started, which brings us to today.
My classes started last week and I am getting a handle on my schedule.
Somehow through all this I found time in all of that to work on more prototypes, jigs, and finished products. I hope you will all be pleased to see that I now have a new addition to my PVC line: Bows.
These come in several varieties and can be customized upon request. Major varieties are Child, Adult Small, and Adult large and each with a level of power classified under Costume and Adventure. Costume bows are designed for child's play and going to conventions where you want something that looks and feels awesome but won't get you kicked out for being too epic. My Adventure class bows on the other are designed with projectiles in mind. These bows have a draw strength of about 20 to 30 pounds. I need to find a way to properly test that so I can tell you for sure.
There's an old saying goes something like, "Whereth there existeth a will to do a deed, forsooth there existeth a way by which to GET-R-DONE".
Or something like that.
There also another saying, "It's all fun in games till somebody gets their eye poked out". A resourceful child can take both of these saying to a whole new level.
I may no longer be a child but I go into some mischief myself while testing my smallest prototype. In a matter of 20 minutes I found a short stick, fastened a bolt to one end as a blunt arrowhead, and made tape fletching on the other end. The bow had more power than I thought. When the powers of all this, poor calculations, and real physics combined-I did not see Captain Planet but I did put a small scratch in my dad's car.
Moral of the story: it doesn't matter how much supervision is present and it doesn't matter the age, mischief will happen when inspiration is given action.
Please stay tuned for more products in the coming weeks.
Oh, and I want thank my wife publicly for all her support, including informing me that I was missing a number in my contacts page.
Speaking of my wife, it has been a while since I did a shout out for her business.
