Dave Cole's Amazing Wooden DC Motor

For those who haven’t been following our blog religiously, Dave Cole is one of our PBDH regulars and a bit of a lasercutter addict. His newest project is a fully functional DC motor made entirely from Metrix Create: Space lasercut wood and a handful of parts from the hardware store.

Dave says he plans on making the kits available at his Etsy store once he gets the design all shiny and vintage science-y looking for mass-production. I wonder if we can find a way to get some in our vending machine…

Bespoke Jewelry by Dave Cole

And now for another pretty project by Dave Cole of the Phinney-Bischoff crowd. Dave gets his paper patterns cut here at Metrix and he takes them home to his rolling mill to make rings and pendants. He’s just started an Etsy store offering his bespoke jewelry at remarkably reasonable prices.

A whole lot of finished (almost) finished product :)

Finally, shiny pretty things.
