This is a super easy poor man's shelving/organization system we've made several times for ourselves as well as family and friends' shops, craft rooms, and pantries. Great way to use up wood scraps or or otherwise useless twisted old lumber if you don't have fancy tools. The bins are just those containers that lunch meat comes in. They work well because you can also stack them with the lids off to save space if the shelves are getting full. #shelvingideas #upcycle #scrapwood #organization

Does anyone have experience using a 3d scanner for reproducing architectural details, creating 3d templates, and creating accurate models of things like existing cabinetry? If so, what works for you? What are some of the gotchas? What models work and which are crummy?

Thanks for the tip, Rojer. I'll give that a try.

Any good prototype PCB machines out there? 12" square board or so.

+LuisMa Suárez Gutiérrez LPKF provides high end prototyping equipment. These machines can handle 8 layer circuits. For a maker the Zentoolworks stuff is much more affordable but also has limited accuracy and when cutting on two sides of a board - being off by a mm could potentially ruin the board.

Turning an old Philadelphia textile factory into reclaimed heart pine flooring, furniture,  and custom cabinetry. We're using a 30 year old portable 'Wood Mizer' bandsaw to mill the pile into 5, 6, and 8 qtr planks. The factory these timbers came from was built in the mid 1800s from trees with annular rings numbering around three hundred! At our shop we call the finished look 'instant old'.
Now that's recycling.

I get your point but I'd prefer to look at this as continuing a tradition of American craftsmanship, ingenuity, and innovation. My shop occupies a four story brick factory in Philadelphia PA. It was built near the end of the 1800's and for nearly 100 years produced parts for narrow gauge looms. We still have many of the old patterns used in making castings and the 36" bandsaw I use daily was part of the original shop and runs like a Swiss watch. Workbenches, vices, and an assortment of machinery were also part of the purchase and continue to be used.
My shop occupies the entirety of the ground floor and we produce high end custom furniture, cabinetry and architectural millwork. The other three floors are occupied by a handful of artisans and small businesses from woodworkers to oil painters and photographers.
So, while you might feel like the US is not the pillar of industry and manufacturing it once was. I like to see what we are doing as being part of a revival of that interest.

Oh +LyzByth Hillery you're going to feel very silly when you read a little about Limor Fried. If you ever meet her you'll find she's anything but unsure. Her tech/nerdy appeal isn't from he glasses but the wealth of work she's produced.

Every month or so someone comes in with a broken spindle or more. While my turning chops are sloppy at best I always enjoy the challenge. These two had me imagining the crafts person from ages past creating the originals using the same tools on similar machinery and even with the same body/hand movements. Each spindle became like a dance. Once the moves and gestures for each were understood, anyone could reproduce it at infinitum. I'd never done these exact turnings before and probably never will again but it seems as tho I knew all the right moves.
Always a pleasure to #Make things.

Nice! I like turning, started with the pen and such kits, and have just started using a chuck to try some bowls and pen cups.

What's your typical soldering temperature? I normally use 350-375 C for projects (through-hole devices). What's yours?
