Lego project

Ladies and Gentlemen, we are in business!

That’s a little disorganized. Hold on a sec.

NOW we’re ready to roll! Stay tuned!

    Whoah… you organize your legos first? That seems… to defeat the purpose. Having to really hunt that one piece. The joy when you find it.

  2. Travis Says:

    Tracy just said she would do the same! It makes my brain hurt! I will not accept this!!!!

  3. admin Says:

    Well they aren’t that organized! There are a lot of pieces there. We’ll still have to hunt. I considered completely organizing the pieces so I could tell if I was missing any pieces. This is a really old set and it’s possible we’re missing some key components. Buuuttt, I’m pretty lazy and that would take more effort than I’m willing to give.

  4. Drew Says:

    Around here, I ALWAYS sort my pieces before I get started. But I’m weird and actually like sorting, so not sure what there is to say there.

    This makes me want to re-build my ship!

    Shhhhh!! You aren’t supposed to know what it is yet!

    I decided to join in the fun, too! http://aloysius.soder-shef.org/?p=437

    You inspired me to do something I’ve been putting off for way too long, Megan. That pirate ship has been sitting (mostly) assembled and dusty in its own container for years now. Today I dug it out, tore it apart and started washing. I’m halfway done and it feels good to be resurrecting this thing.

  8. admin Says:

    SWEET!! We’re assembling ours today. The washing took a while yesterday. I didn’t want it put it together until everything was dry.

  9. admin Says:

    I’m about half way done constructing the ship! To be continued tomorrow…

    Silly sorters, you need to dig for pieces. Then it’s acceptable to scramble the pile for the next person building.

  11. admin Says:

    I only sorted by colors. Trust me, there’s still a lot of digging going on. This set has almost 900 pieces. And Beren and Maggie are excellent scramblers!

  12. youjane Says:

    Excellent! Never too early to start training them up right. Scramble away!

  13. Drew Says:

    Pishaw! Sorting is great! When I built the big sets that I have up right now, it would have taken me at least twice as long to assemble if I’d had to search though a big pile every time I needed a particular piece.

    I think once you get over 500 pieces, you have to do at least a color sort and if you get over 1,000 or 1,500 pieces then you’ve got to sort by color and type. The Tower Bridge set is over 4,000 pieces! There’s no way it could be done without sorting.

  14. youjane Says:

    Nope, now you need twice as many Legos because you didn’t savor the set and he pile method. It’s more economical this way.

  15. admin Says:

    Aloysius has a 30 gallon tote of Lego downstairs! I think he might be a tad tired of sorting…

  16. Ron! Says:

    I love sorting! Honest! Ask Drew! I would sort your Lego, and I am fast too. Just don’t forget, your light grey, dark grey and brown pieces will not match the color of the new sets.

  17. Drew Says:

    Good news. I think that the tote that used to house my pirate ship would make a good storage vessel for potential Adkins’ sets and pieces. It’s surplus at this point.

    Also, Ron does love sorting. Maybe as much as I do…maybe.
