While picking up Evan's car, my coworker invited me in to see a couple of his projects and I'm very impressed.  I have to make a note to remind myself that perhaps one or both of these is worth replicating myself.

  1. An old vintage gas pump that he converted into a fish tank.  Important safety tip:  make sure the spigot is plugged or anyone can empty the tank pretty easily.
  2. An orerry – a real, working scale model of the solar system made from a ceiling fan, a globe, and many other small parts.

Very cool.
