Chapter 9. Putting It All Together: Where Ideas Meet Bricks

We’ve covered a lot of topics up to this point. Throughout this book, you’ve looked at basic building techniques, like overlapping and stacking; different types of LEGO elements and how best to use them; and design ideas, like scale and color. Now it’s time to put your skills to use. This chapter focuses on you, the builder, working toward designing the models you want to make. So print out some design grids, dump some bricks out onto your building table, and get to work!
