Both are matte varnished, but I put some gloss varnish on baby Yoda's eyes to give them a nice bit of texture contrast.

I finally finished painting my 3D printed Dodogama and Baby Yoda! Really pleased with the shading on the coat, but not so happy with the orange-blue transition on Dodogama.

Just had a brilliant pub quiz with about 40 of my work colleagues over a group call. Very high quiz standards though - we got 94/110 and still came fourth!

Just got Nextcloud installed on my NAS - about time! I struggled with getting it to see the MariaDB database without enabling TCP/IP on the database, but in the end gave up, enabled it and it worked right away.

I guess I'll just have to figure out firewall stuff if I ever enable remote access to the NAS.

Obviously the thing to do when you get back from a holiday is varnish your coffee table, right?

I finished painting this little fellow last weekend for my girlfriend to use as a plant pot.

It prompted my coworker to suggest a Charmander that can be used as a lighter.

I ordered some prescription sunglasses that I hoped would arrive in time for my trip to Tenerife, but I'm leaving tomorrow and still no sign of them.

Oh well, might get a chance to use them in summer.

I spent most of this afternoon working on my motorbike. The rear wheel needed to be re-aligned to be parallel to the bike, but the drum brake arm had two seized nuts, preventing the right side of the wheel from moving.

A couple of replacement parts (and weeks of waiting for them) later and it looks like I finally have a straight wheel and a working rear brake! I took the chance to sand the pads too so it might even not be squeaky!

Currently designing a space gun to 3D print and paint because... why not?

I might even add lights+sounds with a microcontroller.

Got my baby Yoda tree topper finished just in time for Christmas! Literally about 9pm on Christmas Eve.
