LEGO DNA Sculpture

December 18th, 2010

My daughter and I built this LEGO DNA sculpture for her school science project.  It took us a lot of trial and error to come up with the design, but I think it turned out great.  This is the first model I’ve ever glued, because without it the sculpture was very fragile and would have never survived the trip to school.  We used Oatey All-Purpose Cement, which was smelly but did a great job of holding the model together.  It actually melts the plastic bricks together, so the sculpture is very sturdy.

LEGO Conversation Heart Box

February 12th, 2009

With Valentine’s Day in just a couple days, I decided to build a small heart-shaped LEGO Box. It is designed to look like a candy conversation heart, complete with a printed message on the front. All thumbnails images below link to larger pictures.

The box even has a removable cover, so it could be used as a small jewelry or treasure box.

This isn’t the first time I’ve posted a project with a love theme. I have featured a Legend of Zelda mosaic with an ‘I Love You’ message as well as a love sign language sculpture.

Halloween LEGO Sculptures

October 6th, 2008

Here is a set of five small, Halloween-themed sculptures. These models contain mostly common bricks, are easy to build, and I think make cute holiday decorations. There is a Ghost, Witch, Pumpkin, Bat, and Skull.

I created these sculptures for a LEGO building workshop on Saturday, October 11, 2008 at the Central Wisconsin Children’s Museum. I did a LEGO Discovery Days Workshop in June, and the museum asked me back for another project. There are 16 kids signed up to build and I’m looking forward to this event.

LEGO Love Sign Sculpture Preview

July 31st, 2008

I don’t usually write about projects that are not complete, but today I’m making an exception. I’ve been working on a sculpture of a hand signing ‘I love you’. It still needs a lot of work, especially the back – which is why it’s only pictured from the front. However, since I haven’t posted much lately I decided to put up a sneak preview of this project.

Updated 08/29/2008:  This project is complete!  I’ve completed a full article with many pictures here.

Smaller LEGO Chess Set Complete

July 22nd, 2008

Back in May I started on a Smaller LEGO Chess Set sized for 4×4 squares, which is the size of the official LEGO chess set boards.  Finally, today, I have completed a full set of red and yellow pieces.  Here it is, on one of the official boards mentioned above.

LEGO Pen and Pencil Holders

June 8th, 2008

You might be a LEGO fanatic if you build practical household items out of LEGO. Just in case I needed any more evidence as to the degree of my LEGO addiction, here are a couple of LEGO Pen and Pencil Holders I’ve built.

These are simple projects to do with kids, and for some reason remind me of the wood and metal shop projects I proudly brought home in junior high school. I think my parents still have the letter holder I made in wood shop when I was 15 years old in their kitchen.

The leftmost item above is a 1×1 LEGO 10x Brick, which is the same dimensions as other two items. See below for more pictures and details. READ FULL ARTICLE »

Robotron LEGO Sculptures

June 3rd, 2008

I’ve created another arcade game LEGO project, inspired by the early 80′s game Robotron. This time instead of another mosaic, I built small sprite sculptures. They are shown below positioned to simulate a 3-D screen shot.

Smaller LEGO Chess Set

May 4th, 2008

Although I’ve done several Chess related LEGO projects, I’m really just an occasional, casual chess player.  (How could I have time for another serious hobby?)  So far I’ve posted about a couple of Giant LEGO Chess Pieces, a Small LEGO Chess Set, and New LEGO Chess Board for the small set.  Today I’m sharing an even smaller set I just completed.  So far I’ve only built one of each piece, since I don’t have enough of the specialized elements needed for a full set.

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.
