August Blocks

Project Description

What are you most proud of? Point got better as I went along. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take your time.

What you will need

  • It pays to measure twice and cut once. I realized the #1 Ohio Stat was off due to cutting it at a wrong angle. Oh well
  • that's part of learning. #2 got better
  • and I was pleased w/ the Double Star. Practice. :)
