ProtoTypo PT3a – BUM

Time for the next ProtoTypo build! This is a quick one I’ve been working on during the past week, and for a change I thought I’ll just get the build documentation out of the way while I’m in the zone (noooot!).

Santa Business (aka Cutting Boards)

This here build is something I completed well before christmas. Since the products were presents for family & friends I chose to post-pone making a post to after christmas. No point running a risk of ruining the surprise for everyone!

It's a cutting board!

Synthesizer Dust Cover

While the days remaining for this year might be drawing towards the end, what there’s left around the christmas holiday season come packed with heaps of spare time. As in, a welcome bonus hours to tinker this and that around the house :)

Add up these two, and it sounds just like a fun project for the holidays. Perhaps recycle some worn-out clothes while at it.

Long story to follow, here’s what I ended up with:

Yay it’s a custom dust cover for my x0xb0x.

Keyboard drawer mat

Ah, parenting! Who wouldn’t like watching their kids grow up, learning new skills in the process and all that.


Lately, my kid learned the questionable skill of “let’s steal dads mouse mat and take/hide it to a random location in the house“. I bothered keeping up with the play about until yesterday, when the mat disappeared somewhere completely out of sight. So to kick off today, I decided to spend half an hour coming up with something “kid-safe”. Read More…
