I hear you, Echolalia.

I have no workbench (l live in a trailer house) but the NE corner of my bedroom is my "tool room". When I was young and able, I would consider putting in a drawer that would roll out in my kitchen cabinets and somehow via planning to build a kitchen island, I'd be making plans for a gazebo.

Many's the time I caught myself and said, "Just ____ the _______ and get on with it."

Fortunately, I'm an old redneck with deep redneck roots. For your situation, I'd have duct taped a couple of hardware store yardsticks to an old card table and put that up when it was game night.

BTW- "woodworking" being a loaded question was in reference to the alternate definition of "wood". Some can work it; some can't.

lol i got that!

Its a genuine question! I've recently found myself in the world of wood working ....

And this is how losing a single die has resulted in me building a Settlers of Catan board game, making 2d and 3d designs for a kitchen table, a board game table, a work bench, and recreating my new house on 3d software.

haha awesome, you go man! any screenshots or renders to see your 3d previz? which 3d software are you using?

Things the NHL says that make no sense,

...but the game is @ 3pm.

I'm still working out how to make a solid render and I haven't looked into it too much. Right now my images are rendering very small and much darker than in the viewports and I don't want to get started down the road of lighting in 3d modeling at the moment haha

I'm using 3dstudio max. They give a free 3 year subscription if you're in school. It doesn't even have to be an art or design related field either.

cool haha I'll tell them I'm still in school... the school of life haha. you could try to use an hdri in an env ball and turn on final gather to have realistic lightning without having to worry about proper lighting or shadows. In case you need it, here's a lighting rig plug-in for 3ds max. http://www.creativecrash.com/3dsmax/plugin/light_rig

just came to mind, but you could 3d model the dice, or find a model, and print it out in 3d.

yeah see all that is foreign language to me haha

also I stumbled on one of the weirdest youtube videos when looking up some woodworking stuff last night. It has some crazy chain-smoking alcoholic safety guy, every free song available for use on youtube ever made, some weird and wacky dance session... all in an otherwise informative video on how to make inlay dovetail joints.
