I'm a Giant! Challenge Day 1

Well, it was done over 2 days actually, cos I ran out of the mounting board (I'm not sure what it's called actually, it's about 1/16 inch thick and kind of like a really thick piece of cardboard or cardstock). Had to take pics using my crappy Nokia N95 handphone as the camera is in the office :P 

Clockwise from left to right: 
Heavy-ish Mooncake Box (to hold down pieces while waiting for glue to dry)
 1:24 roombox, i hope to make it modular, gonna add on another level
"Nicole's" wood glue, not specially purchased, saw it when I bought my first batch of wood pieces for mini making and picked it up cos I was too tired to go compare with the other glues. so far so good!
Lego bricks, act as a 'squaring' tool since I'm too cheap(broke) to buy a proper one
Protractor, to draw out those pesky lines
My fave "Sakura Kit Kat" pencil. lost the mini kitkat that was swinging from the top T-T it tasted -ok-, couldn't be that good nor bad since I don't remember what it tasted like, bought it for the pencil XD
Craft knife
Tongue depressor, to spread the wood glue
Metal ruler
Took this while I was weighing down a backing piece.

hrm. not quite tabula rasa. but to me, definitely a blank slate.
uh. obligatory shot. i donno why i took this XD

i think i'll update the costs in the 'Challenge' page I've set up, you can see the link to the right of this blog :) Or, you can click on the following link:

Can you guess what it's going to be? ;) (haha i'm thinking this is waaay too easy.)
