2019 Skærbæk Workshop: the round grey bits

Posted by Admin
In September 2019 we ran a workshop at the Skaerbaek Fan Weekend in Denmark. 60 AFOLs were given two hours to make interesting stuff using some of the newest LEGO® parts, and a supply of mostly random brick stock. Of the hundreds of models and tablescraps created, we are presenting some of the most interesting to inspire your own creations. My thanks to the SFW organisers, the New Elementary team on the day and our cheery photographer, Andrew Tipping.

Today's selection of creations feature interesting uses of the various circular Medium Stone Grey/ Light Bluish Gray pieces we included in the seed parts: Sphere 3X3X11/3, W/ Knob (49308 | 6263183), Plate 4X4, Circle, W/ 2 Knobs (32627 | 6250188) and finally Motorcycle Rim Ø 75 Solid (46334 | 6268590). Of course the builders used other seed parts too, but hey I've got to string these posts together somehow.

Patrick Koningh “Mad Scientist with Death Ray”

Miguel Reizinho “Neo Classic Space Thingy”

Maria Strömberg “The Lonely Snail”

Frustratingly the 3x3 dome cannot sit centred on the 4x4 tile because the latter has 'jumper'-style studs, but some builders used this offset to good effect such as this cute little guy.

Sander Koenen “Batpod”

Nico Mascagni “Stairs”

Mats Sjövall “Alien Base”

Ulf Andersen “Friendly Robot”

Michal Babik “Chandelier fixture?”

I thought this was an interesting technique - the blue clips support the wheel but it can be rotated.

Petter Åkeson “Nerd finder”

Sphere 3X3X11/3, W/ Knob comes from 21045 Trafalgar Square, Plate 4X4, Circle, W/ 2 Knobs is Frozone's CMF stand from 71024 LEGO Minifigures - The Disney Series 2 and Motorcycle Rim Ø 75 Solid is from 10269 Harley-Davidson Fat Boy.  Consider buying the sets using our Amazon links – as an Amazon Associate we earn from qualifying purchases.
