FHD 2021 Week 33
Fine week. Here are the highlights…
New Spinner Prototype
Dan made us a cool prototype spinner interactive. This design is simple and should be quite robust! I’m excited to see it made in a few larger sizes.
Flat Pack Wall-Mount Reader Rails
We sold some of our new flat pack wall-mount reader rails and completed our first production run of this product.
I mounted the GoPro to the CNC machine to show how a few of the parts in this product are manufactured. Unfortunately, I couldn’t use the dust collector and record with the GoPro at the same time, so it made quite a mess in the shop!
Beecher's Bibles crate
Dan applied a cool paint wash to the pine crate from last week, and stenciled graphics onto the side.
It’s a very simple unit, but I think it will be quite memorable to visitors.
Anthony created conceptual floorplans and started the 3D model of a house museum project we’re currently working on. We’ll have much more good stuff to show later for this project!
Flat Pack Reader Rails
We started taking a few photos of our new flat pack products. They pack up so neatly!
Graham finalized the graphics for the PHM improvements, and prepped all the graphics for print. They’re simple and handsome–I’m excited to see them installed in the new exhibits.
Dave and Jocelyn started to add scheduling to our new quoting and project tracking app.
It’s tough to manage our production workload between custom exhibit projects, Upland orders, and Overland travel schedules (did I mention that Dan and Jocelyn brought the Walls exhibit back from Texas this week?), but it’s something we’re committed to improving as our schedule continues to be overloaded with good projects!

"I thoroughly enjoy getting the emails that, in a short, succinct way, clearly give an overview of the projects you are working on.
I like how you enjoy the highs of the job and let us know about the lows, which everyone has, so it's relatable.
I know it must take time to do this weekly digest, but it's one of the highlights of my day when I get to read it. Thank you and carry on!"- Wendee
