a Fantasy Football league this year and asked me to make them a trophy for the winner.
They all like to hang out at the Peacock Lounge in Sunnyvale, CA so we decided to make
the trophy in homage of their favorite bar. After some brainstorming and a few sketches I
came up with a design, and my building process is as follows....
Devcon plastic welder
& TechShop =)
Step 1: Design
at TechShop I had to make some digital files (this also helped to fully visualize the project before
starting anything physical). So I did a mock up of everything except the peacock on top, due to my
3D character modeling skills being a bit rusty. Once the files were made its Making Time!
Step 2: Prep the MDF
3/4" MDF. Therefore I had to glue two pieces together before I could begin cutting on the ShopBot.
Step 3: Cuttin' the base and mid section
routed out spots for the where the beer cans would nest and a center hole to keep the rod perfectly
aligned. On the mid section I also drilled a hole all the way through to help with the alignment of the
keg and peacock. I used a table router to add the chamfered edge after ShopBotting.
