    The new pick ‘n place machine gets a nicer workbench than all my other work surfaces combined.

  • 3D Printer Filament Cabinet

    3D Printer Filament Cabinet

    When the filament spools started to multiply, it was time to build them a new home. Follow along as we build a filament storage cabinet from scratch!

  • Arduino Air Quality Monitoring

    Arduino Air Quality Monitoring

    Using an Arduino and some air-quality sensors from Sparkfun, I built a little air quality monitoring station for my workroom.

  • Organizing Electronic Components

    Organizing Electronic Components

    This ongoing project is aimed at organizing the critical mass of electronic components rapidly overflowing onto all surfaces of my workspace.

  • PCB Earrings

    PCB Earrings

    A Christmas 2014 gift for my wife, these earrings are fully-functional light engines from the Spyglass v1 project. The rings and clasps are .999 silver. The custom jewelry box was manually machined from C660 bearing bronze.
