This photo (which is totally unstaged, 100% authentic, and depicts events of after school accurately) shows Eli cutting thread rod to size, before we realized he could use a super awesome tool: THE PORTABAND!

Much faster :-D

Plans are coming together for a big crane-like rig at the top of the elevator. This is going to take some REAL building skills! (woot!)

Simi works to make "super-beams" aka two 2x3s screwed together to be twice as strong. We'll need it for the crane-rig!

Bobby works on some pocket screws on the elevator carriage. So many screws!

Cole and Moss work on the pulley rig for testing listing weights!

First test! 

Cutting walls for the elevator on the band saw :-P Things are really coming together!
