  1. “Not cool, Robert Frost.”

    I’m going to be saying that to myself all day! Ha!

  2. Kid President is so hilarious – happy weekending!

  3. I’d lay odds you can find the designs to MAKE something like that FlyGrip for pennies using a 3D printer.

  4. I noted the following regarding the table:
    Nice, but the leg room is an issue. I can see anyone with long legs continually whacking their shins on that x-frame.

    I’d make a slightly more complex cross-member system, or perhaps just use a tube bender to let you move the two main x-bars to the back, and create a couple elbows at about a 30-degree angle from the bottom front to about a foot out on the x-members high up, which steadies the entire back frame in 3 dims, and the lower front in 3 dims. Think trapezoid inside a box “with no bottom member” in plan view. Hopefully, that makes sense.

    Four more t-connectors and two more pipes ca. 1.3x the depth of the table. Slightly more complex but worth the leg room.

    The top front probably does not need stabilization, the tabletop itself is going to anchor those well enough in 3 dims…

    That will give you pretty much full leg clearance except high up towards the back at the sides, and even that isn’t going to be substantial. Six inches or less at half-depth.

  5. Aw, this was a very nice post. Taking the time and actual effort to produce a top
    notch article… but what can I say… I procrastinate a lot and never manage to
    get nearly anything done.
