Taking a short break from talking about Boardgame.io for a project I took on this weekend.
My wife is in a play this holiday season, and one of the plot points is a kid struggling with a science fair project getting a little help from the main character. I went ahead and did some prop work for the before-and-after on the project, and I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.

I figured I could make a sufficiently-sturdy shape with a 3-4-5 right triangle and a cross span to keep the whole thing from tipping over. Yes, my understanding of mechanical stability pretty much tops out at this.
The last step was to bond the gadgets to a base board for easy transport, I was worried about a screw sunk into the stakes on the thin side splitting the stakes. So I used hot glue. A lot of hot glue.

Someday I'll meet one.
