Cordwood Puzzle, second edition (Project #3, May 16)

In the 1950s and 1960s inventive engineers saved space by using the 'cordwood' assembly, where components are sandwiched in between two circuits boards. This construction became less useful with reduced component sizes, PCB manufacturing, and surface mount technology, but is still a lovely piece of history. Combining both old and new, the Cordwood Puzzle is a tribute to this construction.

LEAP#271 guitar tuning with the #BoldportClub Cordwood

Contributed by @tardate on Apr 17, 2017

The Cordwood has six LEDs. Six is one of my favourite numbers .. like the number of strings on a standard guitar. Here’s a quick build that uses an electret pre-amp and a simple Arduino script to provide a pretty stable and accurate indication of which root note is playing. Notes and sources here.  my first image

LEAP#270 animating the #BoldportClub Cordwood

Contributed by @tardate on Apr 16, 2017

The Boldport Cordwood proved to be an instant classic. A few LED animations using the Cordword library written by aaronjasso is a good way to show it off. Notes and sources here.  my first image

LEAP#269 My Cordwood Build - The #BoldportClub Cordwood was an instant classic, and there's a new version on the way!

Contributed by @tardate on Apr 13, 2017

Chunky LEDs and massive 2W resistors result in a final build that has a really nice heft to it. Notes and sources here.  my first image
