Hey Everyone!

Hey all, My name is James Murray, and I'm currently situated in Winter Park.

I found out about Familab through a quick google search, when I decided I've had enough of not being able to work on projects in my apartment.  Simply enough, we live in a small apartment, and there's nowhere to do any real work.  Small soldering projects, sure, assembling a wiring harness for my cars new lighting system, not so great.  I've been interested in electronics for a few years now, with small projects on and off.  My big interests are my car (a dinged and dented 96 volvo), my computer, and my larping.

I've thought about joining a createspace for a while now, but thanks to an erratic retail work schedule, it would have been a pain to schedule any kind of time to get out to one.  The thought of having a dedicated space to simply create and work on projects with like minded people really seems to me like it could be huge fun.

Current projects include an off-road light system for my volvo, and a conversion from the automatic transmission control to a manually controlled unit (flappy paddles!).  I'm looking into a possible quadrocopter when funds permit, and have been dreaming of purchasing a 3d printer.  Apart from that, I tinker with arduino, work with leather for LARPing, mess around with my PC (new video card in a few days!)

I hope to start attending the public events as my new work schedule permits, getting to know some of you, and hopefully be accepted into the FamiLAB!

Hey Hey Everyone! I'm so happy you made it out last night! I was pretty into my lantern work but I hope I was somewhat helpful. Leather is super doable in the lasercutter, and another member, Routan, has got some experience in etching belts and such. Hope to see you out again!
I like colors.
