Bender's "First Stack"

In the B9 robot building world, the "First Stack" is usually the first time the builder takes all the parts they've been making for the past couple of months and stack them into something that resembles the robot. It's a momentous occasion that causes you to run into the house and drag your better half outside to admire your work. Pieces of wood, plastic and whatever is stacked on top of itself to form ..... something.

Well today was Bender's first stack. And I'm the proud papa. The project takes on a whole new burst of enthusiasm when you reach this point. The finish line is approaching and you can finally see it. I'm going to crack open a beer after typing this and savor the moment.
