Our friends and sponsor of 2013's Maker Faire North Carolina, Firefly Laser, have just a few days left until their Kickstarter expires. You can check out their product in person on June 15th but you'll miss out on their Kickstarter deal unless you act quickly.

Here's a Kickstarter project that I just contributed to. The founders of SketchChair have developed software that allows you to easily design or customize a chair that can be cut by CNC routers (such as ShopBot), Laser, and other computer-controlled tools. The software will be free but they're looking for funding for development of their online community for sharing chair designs.
I designed these Make magazine holders a week ago and I've finally finished them. I just posted the files over on thingiverse so you can make your own. Enjoy!
I like the look of Make magazine on my bookshelves but I wanted something to store them in that was similar to the holders I use for other magazines. Make's (and Craft's) unique form factor require a custom solution.
The images show the Make Magazine logo and cover art for each year. I'm assuming that I can't include the cover images in the files on thingiverse but I downloaded them from Make's own website if you want to make them exactly like mine.
Each file is designed for a loose fit for gluing and has been sized to contain four issues (one year).
I whipped these up in Corel Draw X4 and then cut them on the Epilog Helix 45w lazzzzor at TechShop RDU. I used 1/4" Baltic Birch plywood and then sanded the whole shebang to 400 grit. I finished the pieces with General Finishes Seal-a-Cell.
The raster and vector settings are in the files.
These video game controller ornaments rock and would make terrific holiday presents for your friends. Only $10 for a set of seven! I love the creativity and I've got a soft spot for laser-cut acrylic.
