My interpretation of a Star Destroyer exiting light speed. Inspired by the Scarif battle scene in Rogue One. Cinema4D was used to create the animation, and then the output was brought into Adobe Premiere for the addition of sound, and some colour correction.
This an update to the boat mover dolly I created in 2014: http://www.justinchristie.ca/2014/10/01/building-a-boat-dolly/ After some repeated use I discovered that the bicycle tires I free-cycled were not coping well with the combined weight of the dolly and boat. The tires were starting to buckle, and one of them had a slow rim leak. The threaded 1/2″ […]
Inspired by the worm hole in the film Interstellar, …I decided to make my own version in After Effects CC 2014. It’s surprisingly easy to do – it’s just a multitude of layers using the lens and bulge effects. This is how the gravitational lensing is achieved – although it’s not scientifically accurate. The working […]
I purchased an older Evinrude 2hp boat motor (model E2RCNE), and I wanted an easy way to store and service it – the obvious solution is to build a motor stand/dolly. I started off with a ‘movers dolly’ from Princess Auto – it was made of hardwood and on sale for $14. This gave me […]
I spent a few weeks (back in Spring 2013) going back and forth on a decision to install a deck or a patio in our backyard. I ultimately decided on a patio because it would last longer and have less maintenance – however it would be far more labour intensive. Using Adobe Illustrator, I mocked […]
This is what happens when you use cheap drywall anchors – they will spin in the drywall and create a gaping hole. To solve this, TOGGLER makes an anchor kit specifically for hollow areas – you can purchase this at most hardware stores. In my case, the hole in the drywall was so big that […]
If you have an older fence, you can revitalize it for minimal cost with a few pressure treated boards and outdoor stain. At the back of our property we had an older fence – it looked like it was about 10 years old. It was weathered nicely, but it didn’t match our decor. I purchased […]
Just a couple of pics so I can post on other forums.
I purchased this blocker a few weeks ago – it was only used for 30mins by it’s previous owner. It’s a very well made blocker – the quality of material is leather with some weave material. The palm seems very “heavy-duty”, yet it’s very comfortable – more than enough space for someone with big hands. This […]
I purchased this Koho 570L goalie glove off ebay – as you can see, it was hardly used. If you have big hands, this glove will fit you perfectly – lots of room. Unfortunately you won’t be able to use this catcher if you play in a league that requires NHL spec equipment – this […]
