ADA Vanity Build Complete

Make an ADA Compliant Vanity for Your Bathroom

There aren’t a lot of options out there for ADA compliant vanities. Most are wall-mounted, which I didn’t want. They’re also very expensive. I wanted an ADA compliant vanity that would look have legs, but still accommodate a wheelchair under it. The best part? It’s exactly what I wanted, at a fraction of the cost….




Dayton Maker Faire Swag

Dayton Maker Faire 2016

The inaugural Dayton Maker Faire is in the books. Both Real Art and MCM Electronics put a huge effort into making the event a memorable one. There was plenty to do for folks of all ages, from learning about various different types of art, to taking part in activities like learning to solder. Both companies…




Raspberry Pi Infinity+

Building the Huge Raspberry Pi Infinity+

We’ve just arrived back from the Bay Area Maker Faire, where MCM Electronics was a sponsor, having a booth right next to the Raspberry Pi Foundation. The show was a great success. One of the coolest parts of our booth was the Pi Infinity+, which Michael Castor and I made over the course of a…




CNC Tricerotops

Fun with Dinosaurs

Carriage-door-test-fit

Building Huge Carriage Style Doors

On the rear of our barn, I left an 8×8 hole to provide rear access. At the time, I wasn’t sure whether I wanted to put an overhead door there, or something else. Ironically, that access has been blocked by a false wall I put in that provided no access at all. Over the course…




PVC Planter Complete

Build a PVC Planter

We were at the local hardware store, buying some flowers and gardening supplies. Mrs. Moist thought a large planter would look great in between our garage doors in our driveway. They have large ceramic planters available, but nothing that quite fit our style. So we’re off on a project – to build a planter just…




Plastic and Plexiglass Bender

Plastic and Plexiglass Bender on a Budget

First a little back story on this one. Since I started commuting to work more often on the DRZ, and from farther away, the wind has started getting to me. The design of the DRZ headlight bezel deflects wind directly at your chest. For that reason, going over 60 MPH or so gets to be…
