I was recently involved with exhibiting at the Maker Faire here in Atlanta. I participated with a group of friends under the umbrella of Oscar Eastwood. We made and sold simple circuit kits that were custom designed laser-cut critters with a LED, coin cell battery, battery holder, and conductive thread. It was a great experience … Continue reading Oscar Eastwood @ Maker Faire Atlanta
I discovered a neat trick with an older project of mine, once you burn your candle down to the bottom you can use it as a planter. There is even already a hole in the bottom from the wick. I switched to a smaller diameter wick with the 2nd batch of candles I made so … Continue reading Stump Candle Update

I think this little guy is destined for a brighter colors and a … Continue reading Fish Charms

The stripes are a byproduct of using ABS to print a very organic shape. I think they suit this … Continue reading Barnacle Magnets
Growing up I had a series of Wizard of Oz figurines that would move their arms and legs if you on pulled their strings. This is a version of that design where you use a downward pulling motion to cause the flippers to flap. The beauty of 3-D printing is that you can print the whole … Continue reading Sea Turtle Puppet
