Clock Club Project

May 5th, 2016

Untitled

Working on a “clock” concept/project/platform with Tom Igoe and Jeff Feddersen. We’ve given ourselves a loose concept (and an even looser deadline) and we’re calling it Clock Club. I’m putting together a quick mechanical prototype for a two handed device.

I’m interested in what will come from this.

I made a bud vase from some scrap plywood and a test tube. I really liked how the plys looked after oiling and waxing.

Wooden Pull Toy Prototype

May 4th, 2016

Untitled

Did some quick wooden pull toy prototypes. All started as dog icons I got from The Noun Project (here, here, and here). Printed them out, spray mounted them to some scrap wood, rough cut them on a scroll saw, drilled the holes, sanded, painted and waxed.

Lathe Maintenance

March 30th, 2016

Untitled

I recently had to replace some handles (and this one) on a lathe I’ve had for over 13 years. My very first lathe as a matter of fact.

I’ve now replaced the belt, 3 tool rests, the power switch, the drive center, and now these handles. Feels good to keep the old girl running.

The newest Robot Recipe is up on Make:. And those are cinnamon roasted pineapples, not tater tots.

Wobble Bot was primarily made from a pineapple can, a spice container, and a half sphere food form.
