This freedom might seem a little strange, but it's how hardware used to be for most of the 20th century.

    An important electronics skill is being able to read an electrical schematic. We thought we'd teach you how to read a schematic by reading ours, and comparing it to some similar circuits. Open this link in a new tab for a full-size copy of the schematic to play along with this blog post.
