Another Kinetic Sand Art Table

Another nice build. I like how the parts are all 3D printed so you do not need to make any custom stuff. I like how he uses fake leather as a buffer between the magnet and the steel ball to … Continue reading

Making wooden nuts

The author uses 3D printed out templates to draw out the outside of the nut, pretty neat build if you want to make really big nuts out of wood. The nuts would be insulated which could be nice in some … Continue reading

One fancy 3D printed camera motion control rig

Wow this is one complex build. Not so sure I would make this one, even if my printer could print the larger parts. Nice to watch the build thought.

Nice CNC build

The author 3D prints most of the rail and other parts with wood combo, so in theory with a 3D printer, and some hand tools you could build your own. Downside is you do need a 3D printer. The author … Continue reading

3D print some puck corner clamps

Clever build for a corner clamp, as long as both boards are the same thickness. Only issue I see is that you would pretty much have to do a 80% or more fill on the puck to allow for decent … Continue reading
