Test Tube Spice Rack

A order cialis 20mg friend of mine had all her spices stolen appropriated when her old roommate moved out. So I made her this spice rack for Christmas: It holds up to 18 test tubes of spices, pre-filled with 12 and each labeled with a suitably scientific sounding abbreviation. Each glass tube holds about 1 […]

Meta Lego Storage

In need of a way to organize and store my Lego obsession, I made a bunch of acrylic boxes which not only hold Legos, but also stack and interlock similarly: Each brick box holds 64+ of the same-shape piece. So the 1×1 box will hold 64 1×1 bricks, and the 2×2 holds 64 2×2 bricks. […]

Packaging Evolution

My packaging has been through a number of iterations since the first Tinysaur was shipped. The first was an “Oh no I need packaging” sort of thing, where I haphazardly went to Duane Reade to pick up the least boring paper I could find – which turned out to be construction paper. I ran the […]

Today’s Wooden Displays

Most of the last week has been spent prepping for a craft show, my first one in about two years. In order to get ready for the craft show, and also to attract some more wholesale clients, I’ve been working on some nice wooden display stands for Tinysaur. These are the displays I’m using for […]

Laser Sponge

A friend of mine asked me to test out laser cutting on some compressed sponges, which she wants to use for a business card. It came out really well! Both the raster and vector cutting was done at 100% power and 100% speed. Cellulose is surprisingly resiliant stuff. The serif font looked OK down to […]

Tinysaur Display

I’m helping my friend Sara at the Squidfire Holiday Market in Baltimore, Maryland on Sunday. She suggested I bring some Tinysaurs, and so I made a display to neatly hold the Tinysaur kits. I generated the pattern with a python script I wrote, using the sdxf library. If you’d like to make your own, the […]

Woolly Tiny

Not wanting to get Tinysaur to get all the spotlight, I bring you… WOOLLY TINY. Like a Woolly Mammoth. But Tiny. The pattern comes from the epilog website and the assembly was done with a pair of tweezers and a baby syringe full of Elmer’s glue. If you’ve always wanted your own mini mammoth, or […]

Lamp progress

The lamp is coming along nicely. The shades are cut from translucent white acrylic, and the stems are cut out of wood. Each shade is a 1.5″ cube. I wired them up with LEDs to test things out, and Bre lent me a camera to film them with. Now to get it to talk to […]

Folded paper boxes

I’ve been working on learning Processing, a language which is a bastardization of Java used for drawing pretty pictures (among other things). Most of its functions are based around drawing/graphics. Processing project #1 was to generate templates to be cut on the laser cutter. Specifically paper boxes, because I needed something to package my Tinysaurs […]

New Project: Lamps

Hooray, a new project! At work it often gets very loud in my office, so everyone wears headphones. Unfortunately this makes it difficult to get someone’s attention, because they’re all rocking out to David Bowie or whatever. Also, it gets very dark in my office because we don’t have desk lamps. The solution, clearly, is […]
