About Snailworks...

I like to build things. "www.liming.org", aka Snailworks, is the main domain name for a series of websites, mostly build logs of projects I've done, but which can serve other interests as well. "Snailworks" is a name that has just grown over the years for this enterprise. This is a page listing the build logs so far.

There are no commercials, no obligations sought after, no pop-up ads, just information sharing to like minded people.

The name Snailworks came about due to a couple of friends who have hangars near my own at a local airport. One of them, George Andre, was a test pilot for Lockheed (on the SR-71, among others!) and one day he painted the famous "Skunkworks" logo on his hangar door, shown in Figure 1. Not to be outdone, another friend whose hangar is on the same row, Rudy Haug, who was a test pilot for McDonnell Douglas (now Boeing) painted the logo for "Phantomworks" on his door, shown in Figure 2. (Also in Figure 1 is sign for an airplane logo above his door that I did for him on my CNC machine, listed below.)

Anyway, not too long after that, considering the pace of my work, the timeframe that some of my projects take, and my hubris to even think I might be on the same row as these guys, I came up with a response for my hangar door, and that was Snailworks, shown in Figure 3.
