I made a couple of home improvements. I turned a wooden doorknob and a wooden toilet paper holder. They are small things, but really spruce up the place.

Art Stands

June 17th, 2018

Untitled

I recently built a couple of custom stands for some great pieces of art.

Untitled

The first one is by Christ Bathgate, Slider sculpture (S1). I wanted to present it, so I turned a piece of walnut that fit a glass dome. I also soldered some brass rod to display the piece properly. Everything looks better on sticks.

The second piece is the Gemini figure from Outer Space Men. This little guy had a balancing problem, so I turned a piece of aluminum and added two small rods so the feet would be fixed. There is a hole in the back to store the extra pieces.

Robot Recipe: Rabbits at AmDC Built

May 12th, 2018

robot_rabbit_003

Robot Recipes: Rabbit will be on display for the next two weeks at the American Design Club Built Show.

“Built is starting from scratch. Built is the process. And a method. Built is a decision. And a material. Built is the tools we use. And how we use them. Those who innovate a way past limitations deserve a stage of appreciation during NYCxDesign 2018.”

Built will be on view and open to the public May 11th - 23rd. Hours each day are 11am - 7 pm (Sundays 12 - 6pm).

There are a bunch of great designs and products showing there.

Brass Hammer

March 30th, 2018

Untitled

I had some scrap brass and walnut (?) lying around and figured I’d try making a brass headed hammer. I did all of the work on a wood lathe. Brass can be worked with wood turning chisels, kind of amazing.

Crazy to think of all of the work that goes into assemblies that no one will even see.

Untitled

Been working on some fussy little parts. First CNC’d, then slip rolled, then eventually going to be powder coated.

Made these guys a little while ago. I’ve been iterating on this robot rabbit form for a while now. I’m afraid there is more to come.

Raspberry Pi Blocks for Maker Faire

November 14th, 2017

The Raspberry Pi Foundation put together a video of the “blocks” I built for them for Maker Faire a few months ago.

The project was a lot of fun and everybody was a delight to work with. Thanks Matt for yet another great collaboration.
