As a child, I played with a lot of my toys by taking them apart

I’ve always been fascinated by how things are made, how they work, automated machines and robotics.  Building with Legos, wood, cardboard, wire hangers, masking tape, glue or anything I could use was a daily occurrence for me.  One day it’s who can build the longest Lego car, the next it’s who can build the best tree house.  The desire to build, invent and problem solve is never far away.

So why CNC and technical stuff?

It all started as a “let’s see if you can do it” type of self challenge. Little did I know where this personal challenge would lead. Having built several CNC machines now, I’ve started working with different types of software, hardware and everything in between.  Learning new things… but more importantly, sharing new tips, tools and knowledge along the way.

My Goal

To inspire, to help you on your way to making your own “thing”.  Be it a CNC, automated machine, new bench or just learning something new. I’m constantly finding new information, tools and resources to share.  So take a look around the site and see what it’s all about.
