LEGO Trophies

April 27th, 2008

When you win a LEGO related contest, and the prize is a trophy, shouldn’t it be a LEGO trophy?  I think so, which is why I built these.  They are awards for a website scavenger hunt which I’m holding this weekend for my friends at BrickLink.  I am awarding a larger trophy for first place and several smaller ones as runner-up awards.

Giant Engraved LEGO Brick

April 22nd, 2008

After completing my article yesterday about the BrickPlayer Logo Sculpture, I started to think about why I elected to construct the lettering on the bricks sticking out, rather than flush or recessed.  Why I didn’t pick flush is easy.  It’s boring and I was trying to spice up an otherwise simple project.  However, I was starting to second guess my decision to build outward instead of inward.  After all, I had seen real engraved LEGO bricks for sale on BrickLink, and also more recently by LEGO themselves.

So, I decided to build at least one brick recessed, as if engraved, and see how I liked it compared to my work from the day before.  Shown below is a 10x 1×4 brick with recessed lettering (in red) along with the brick from the logo (in blue).

BrickPlayer Logo Sculpture

April 21st, 2008

After I designed the BrickPlayer logo for this website, I realized right away it would make a great sculpture and planned to eventually build it from bricks.  This weekend I built it, and here it is…

I considered replacing the Microsoft Paint generated logo I’m currently using on this website, but so far I’ve been unable to size and clean-up the photographs well enough to be satisfied.

Little LEGO Bird

April 19th, 2008

Earlier this week I posted an article about a LEGO Cat Birdhouse I built.  Although I designed it with features to make it (somewhat) practical as a real birdhouse, I really never intended to put it outside and let the elements destroy good LEGO bricks.  This made me a little sad because the birdhouse would never really have any birds as visitors.  Unless… I built a LEGO bird for it!

LEGO Cat Birdhouse

April 16th, 2008

Last week I posted my first attempt at building a LEGO Birdhouse, which was a scaled-up version of a tiny (minifig-sized) birdhouse.  This week I’ve built another birdhouse.  This one is of a cat head, with the mouth of the cat as the opening for the birds.  I’m also entering this one in the contest (see birdhouse post linked above for more about the contest).

Packer Logo LEGO Mosaic

April 9th, 2008

I grew up in Green Bay, Wisconsin, only a few blocks from James Lofton’s house. (Anyone remember who he was?) For five years I lived in Arizona and when I told people I was from Wisconsin, on many occasions people replied – ‘So you must be a cheese head!’ Well, I have to admit I am guilty of that, and in my office hangs this Packer logo made from LEGO bricks as evidence.

Below are the building plans for this mosaic in case any other cheese heads out there want to build their own Packer logo. READ FULL ARTICLE »
