Building A Rocket
The weekend before last, I attended the Mini Maker Faire at Dokk1 in Aarhus. They made a draw to give away three laser-cut model rockets, and I won one!
Last weekend I finally found time to put it together. I think it looks really nice, so I just wanted to quickly post a few pictures.
There is a lot of detail to it. As can be seen on the instructions below, it contains a lot of bits and pieces.
Since the technique for cutting out the wood actually involves burning it, the edges of the cut-outs were charred, so my fingers got very dirty from the assembly. Not something I would have thought of in advance.
I was quite impressed by the precision with which it had been cut out.
So now I have a rocket in my home office. Sweet!
