Here's a custom bed frame I made for my daughter!

In my neverending quest to come up with a good(cheap) linear bearing idea - I had bought some "Butcher Boy" bearings off of eBay for cheap. Well they were way too sloppy for any linear motion - so here's how I converted them into good Homemade V-Bearings that I could use (and still for cheap) :)

Made a sign for Pop for Father's day on my homemade CNC machine - Check it out!

No the sign isn't made out of Kevlar, it's made out of wood (Red Oak to be exact) - the baby's name is Kevlar ;) Check out the custom sign I made for his room on my homemade CNC machine!

I made a "praying soldier" yard silhouette piece for a lady who found me on Craig's List. Stands about 30" tall and about 40" wide - Check out the pictures!

Here's my second woodworking project ever (yes I'll probably stop counting them at some point) It's a Desk / Table! Check it out!


Workshop projects are for stuff in the garage (CNC, Reprap, woodworking, metalworking, electronics, metal casting, etc...)

These are my posts about my CNC hobby, now to include my new Reprap 3d Printer :)

These are my electronics projects, working with the Parallax Propellor, Arduino, stepper motors, you name it!
