CNC Pendant For Marlin Based Control Boards

A lot of people will disagree with me on this but, I am a big fan of Marlin Firmware for use on hobby CNCs. In my experiences with 3D printing I have learned the ins and outs of Marlin and am adequately able to manipulate the firmware to my needs. […]

Wearable Wooden Bowtie

As I have become more comfortable pushing the limits with my CNC, I’m always trying to test out new software and expand my knowledge and ability. Most recently I dove into Fusion360 CAM to take advantage of 3D milling. Up until now i had limited myself to 2D and 2.5D […]

Reclaimed Double Sliders

Last month I was informed by the boss of impending project to improve the aesthetics of our living room. When we remodeled the room last year (Paint, recessed overhead lighting, new trim and crown, and some rods and drapes, etc.), I may have casually mentioned a sliding barn door…  I […]

My most satisfying and, I dare say, favorite hobby is subtractive manufacturing on the CNC. I am by no means a professional, but I take great pleasure in the process of designing something and working through the process of setting it up in CAD and CAM, then watching it become […]

Klipper & Mainsail on the Ender 3 Pro

One of my favorite parts of 3D printing is the ability to constantly upgrade and improve the performance of my printer with out having to start over again from scratch. Most of the time I learn new things along the way too. Klipper firmware is one of the cheapest and […]

Platform Bed – part 2

Summer 2019: After a new headboard magically appeared over a long weekend, my girlfriend immediately found our absence of a suitable bed frame to be the top priority in out lives. Given my lack of free time that summer, and no dedicated workspace to speak of, I proceeded to procrastinate […]
