TSAS Middles: Gutter Tests

Middles (Spring 2014)Sean Murray

“We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.”

― Oscar Wilde, Lady Windermere's Fan

Our big picture project is a boat race: we'll make tiny boats that race through gutters, right here in our shop. But this big picture is more of a big mosaic, made of many tiny elements.

The first is development of a water-tight gutter.

Today we tested three different prototypes, then met as a group to decide on a design that incorporated strengths from all three.

Next week we'll go into production mode on the gutters!
