Copper Roses and Lighthouses

Copper roses are what started it all years ago. Big roses led to smaller roses which led to lighthouses. Each rose is hand cut, soldered, shaped, then colored. I also offer the templates and a tutorial on my blog for those wanting to make their own.

Lighthouses are a bigger undertaking, each requiring numerous pieces, careful fitting, and tedious assembly before being fitted with a candle or a custom beacon.

Arduino CNC Controller

GRBLDuino Shield - GRBL 1.1 compatible Arduino Uno Shield CNC controllers. Each controller can drive up to four axes and supports two limit/home switches per axis. The controllers also support spindle speed (PWM) and direction; coolant control; probe function; and emergency stop, abort, hold, and resume buttons. GRBLDuino Uno and Mega Shields are now available in a kit or assembled and ready to use.

Wooden Airplanes

Wooden airplanes are what really propelled things forward for me. I built one in a few days from some not-so-great plans which required too much on-the-fly problem solving. After that build, I spent months drawing up good plans, developing a comprehensive parts list, and writing some great instructions to offer for sale. I now sell completed planes and plans on Etsy.

Custom Signs

Big or small, fancy or plain, custom signs have become one of my most prolific items. I'm always willing to try new things so nearly any style and font are possible. Even more options will open up once I complete my CNC machine build in early 2018.

I currently have one style of smaller sign for sale on Etsy, but custom orders are always welcome.

Yep, a little bit of everything.

As you can see, I do a little bit of a lot of different things but this isn't even everything. Take a stroll through my Instagram and blog to see more of the random things I do.

LeakSeeker 89

LeakSeeker 89, a product from EDS, Inc went out of production in 2014 but I offer the bare PCBs for sale in my Tindie store for those wanting to build one.

CapAnalyzer 88A

Same as the LeakSeeker, the CapAnalyzer 88A is another out of production EDS, Inc product. I also offer the PCBs for sale on Tindie.

Leather Work

I also have a few leather products although at this time I only have leather cord organizers listed for sale, but I am willing to explore other products as requests and custom orders come in. I also produce a reproduction canvas parachute bag upon request.
