Eco Bean Sign

Eco Bean Coffee Dimensional Sign

Eco Bean requested a sign for their offices that would be wall mounted. Since they were to be mounting it themselves, instead of requiring every component to be mounted in a floating fashion, I decided to mount all the components to a semi-transparent (2447) 3/16″ acrylic sheet. I routed all the shapes individually from 12mm…




Pinnacle Industrial Coatings Sign

Pinnacle Industrial Coatings Sign

My friends over at Southwest Ohio Garage Floor Coatings are in the process of expanding their business from the consumer space into the industrial space. As such, they needed a sign for their showroom, based on an existing logo for their industrial division. The sign will be mounted on one wall along with an existing…




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

My son, Cooper loves few things more than dinosaurs! Playing around the other day, I downloaded a couple dinosaur skeleton puzzles and cut them on the CNC router from 1/8″ MDF.

Tenma Sign on Wall

Tenma Display Sign

Earlier this week, I was looking around for more ideas to fill out our video set at MCM, and looking for an excuse to mill some more stuff on the CNC router. The Tenma (soldering and test equipment) logo has a neat shape, with some cool cutouts inside the letters. There was some scrap 1/2″…




MCM Sign Final

MCM Electronics Dimensional Letter and Back Lit Sign

A bit ago, we started shooting videos at MCM for our “New Product Saturdays” campaign. At the outset, though, our set was a bit…bland. Essentially, we were shooting at a table I built with a cinder block wall backdrop. To add some interest, I thought it would be cool to add some branding in the…




Finished Moist Family Sign

The Moist Family Sign

Since moving into our new home a few years ago, we’ve struggled to “make it our own”. We’ve painted, recarpeted, finished, and it’s coming along. I thought it would be a great idea to come up with some sort of sign that could hang by the road that could really add something unique to the…




Ohio Shaped Oak Wall Sign with Script on Shelf

Ohio Script Signs

I’m having so much fun with the CNC router! I knocked out a few Ohio-shaped signs as gifts over the holidays, which turned out pretty well. If you want one, there are a couple on the family’s Etsy shop. They’re made from red oak hardwood, with a sawtooth hanger and rubber bumpers on the back…
