I worked on a pilot for a television show with a brutal schedule: one day to build everything, and one day to shoot the episode. Wow!

I built four steel frames to hold each pneumatically-operated mallet, and when some alterations were requested, I modified the design so that the mallets would swing perpendicular to the direction that I’d originally planned.

    Are you going to post photos of the car-smashing? What was filling the barrels?
