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

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.

More Parts

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.

Bantam Tools posted a nice interview on my Magnetic Clock project and some other work I’ve been doing. Thanks for the press.

If you’re interested, take a look.

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.

Robot Recipes: Iron Man

October 13th, 2017

Untitled

I can’t believe it took me this long to make an Iron Man Robot Recipe. Two cans, a few milled parts, and a nice powder coat paint job. I might make a couple more of these, probably put some lights inside.

Milled Parts

All the milled parts.

Raspberry Pi Foundation’s Maker Faire “Blocks”

September 24th, 2017

Untitled

I made the “blocks” that the Raspberry Pi Foundation used for this year’s Maker Faire in New York. Sort of a retro science fair kind of vibe. I had major deja vu making these, as a kid I used to hammer nails into blocks and wire up simple circuits. I’ve come full circle.

Thanks for the project Matt.
