It's a busy time at my hackerspace right now, as MakerFaire NY is right around the corner.  However, I managed to squeeze in some quality time with the band saw tonight.  You know what I'm up to.... getting rid of that ugly curled handle, as promised! 

 

 

My next move will be to test my momentary button that will control the different light patterns on the umbrella.  It's really cool looking and was a big motivation in sawing off the handle.  I hope it works out!  Also, I'll definitely be at MakerFaire, so if you see me, please do say "Hi".  If you know you will be at a table or workshop, let me know and I'll visit you.  Don't expect to see the umbrella as there is still lots to do...
