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.
