Circus Stuff

Construction Day

So I built a few things today. The first was finishing my stilts off:


I think I might need to replace the current velcro straps with something that I can pull tight, but we shall see. These are a pretty modest 50cm or so high, and largely experimental. I might make so taller ones once I get the hang of these.

The second item was a rola bola (also termed a balance board). Basically a PVC pipe and a 12mm thick board of shutterply. Feels very strange, sort of like floating.

The last item was a box to put all my toys in:



This still needs to be painted, but has room for quite a bit more stuff. It currently has a whole mess of balls, mostly for workshops/teaching, my clubs, a diabolo and a couple sets of poi.

Quite a successful day, I think.

If anyone wants designs or more photos, email me or get in touch on twitter.
