Late in the Workshop...

Here is a Peg-O pocket racer I just put together tonight. I am thinking of calling him "Jonas Danger" in the Booster-2000!

For the past month I've been searching online for an army bag capable of holding a single 4 inch sabol foam tray that I've been using to carry all my 3 T.O.W. Peg-O's. I thought it would make a cool themed piece to be sent with my game when I submit it to KublaCon. However nobody (including Sabol) seems to make a bag small enough to transport just one foam tray!

But today, I decided to visit my local Army Surplus Store here in my little town and there it was. An army bag big enough to hold the 13x7.5x4.5 foam tray!

It was only $19 and I saw alot of neat things in the store that I might want to purchase at a later time. Best part about the store was the sales woman who was rocking an ipod (with headphones on) and playing Rammstein's: Du Hast so loud I could hear it from the back of the store :-D

When I got home I made a cover out of green canvas to make the foam easier to slide in and out without resistance or being damaged. Yup, I sewed it myself :-) a feat I am quite proud of seeing as I've never sewn anything other than a torn hacky-sack :-P

6 Turn Counter / John G. Sesame

Here is the completed 6 turn counter :-D

For those of you who haven't played; the 6 turn counter is started the second the first player ends his or her last tour. All other players have 6 turns to complete their final tour or they're points are halved!

I originally intended for this piece to be set in a mini helicopter, but unfortunately that project fell apart. Plastic and "heavy" wooden pegs don't sit well together and the frustration caused me to rush into salvaging the pieces that were still good and accidentally getting a big piece of plastic to shoot into my eye (with the use of a dremmel). It scare the living Jesus out of me! I got the piece out by rushing to the sink and washing my eye out; it was very red, itchy and irritated for a day :-(
*Remember kids, "don't be a dummy" safety first! Use protective goggles when using a dremmel* :-)
