Tutorials.

For the past several years, I have published various blog posts and instructions on how I design and build things - art, objects, and tools. Below is a collection of some of the tutorials and processes I've published - with difficulty levels ranging from beginner to advanced.  I have learned so much by following other makers on the internet, so my hope is that some maker out there, somewhere, might find my documentation useful.  Enjoy!
