Jon Peters’ Awesome BEME Skateboard

Jon Peters’ took a regular old plain skateboard deck and turned it into an awesome one by laminating it with a Zebrawood veneer withe BEME logo on the bottom.  This video shows some fantastic tips and tricks for working with veneer and getting some very good edges and results.  If you work with veneer from time to time this is a must see!  Check out his website article here: Jon Peters’ Zebrawood Skateboard Deck

Matthias Wandel’s Automatic Baby Buggy

I’m pretty sure if he was born a few hundred years ago, Matthias would be one of those mad scientists we read about in our history books.  In his latest creation Mr. Wandel has created an automated “soothing machine” for his child.  Yes.  It’s made out of spare drill parts and wood.  What else would you expect?  Check out his website article here:  Baby Soothing Machine

April Wilkerson’s Headboard

April made this really slick queen headboard from plywood and it turned out super awesome!  April is quite the ingenious woodworker! Be sure to check her WilkerDos article on this project: Queen Size Headboard

I Like to Make Something’s Awesome 3D Printer Knob

In this weeks episode Bob makes a 3D Printed knob to “solve a real world problem”.  It’s a great idea and it demonstrates the reason that 3D printers will slowly but surely change the world.  Check out his web article here: 3D Printer Knob
