There’s this thing called a OneWheel. It’s not to be mistaken with a hover board. These don’t shutoff on you or cause a fire while charging. They’re also entirely designed and built here in the US. Riding one of these will be the most fun you’ll ever have!
There was only one problem. It takes up a lot of room. So I set out to design my own stand for it. Sure, Future Motion sells a stand of their own, and it’s quite awesome looking. But If I can build something, I’d rather build it than buy it.
So I’ve gone through a few different iterations of my take on the OneWheel stand. The First version is probably the most appealing in looks, but when I started to cut the pieces, it came apparent that the angles I designed and my crappy math education, it was impossible.
The second version was to layer and glue plywood sheets together. Did the math and that came out to a lot of expensive plywood. Kinda cool looking but not really. But it would have worked.
So the design sat for a few months. Ideas came and went. Hundreds of miles racked up on this OneWheel. Last week I came across furniture designed with black pipe from the hardware store. Instantly fell in love with the industrial and simplistic look.
Every day in Chicago is Flag Day. Nobody does it better than us. Here it is handcrafted in reclaimed wood.
Did you know? White, is the union of all the colors, to symbolize the union of all the races in the city of Chicago. The top white band represents the North Side. The middle white band represents the West Side The bottom white band represents the South Side
Blue is the color of the lake and river, of distant mountains, and of the oceans. The top blue band represents the North branch of the Chicago River. The bottom blue band represents the South Branch of the Chicago River.
The six pointed stars are different from the five pointed stars representing states. Star #1 stands for Fort Dearborn, the original settlement. Star #2 is for the Great Chicago Fire (1871), after which the city was rebuilt. Star #3 is for the World’s Columbian Exposition (1893) where we welcomed the world. Star #4 is for Century of Progress International Exposition (1933)
Better than a tattoo. Put it on your wall, Chicagoan or not, it is always Flag Day.

This Chicago Flag wall art is available in two sizes, 15″ x 9″ and 30″ x 20″. Comes equipped with a sawtooth hanger on the back.
The Penrose Triangle is often called the “impossible” triangle. The properties of this two dimensional art piece can be created in the second dimension, of reclaimed wood, but cannot be created in the third dimension.
The artist, M.C. Escher, took inspiration from an earlier artist, Oscar Reutersvärd, and created many incompatible perspectives such as this one. So, the image becomes a sacred object as it folds into itself.
Use it as a source of introspection and meditation. Display it as a riddle that cannot be solved as a reminder of life’s many conundrums. Gift it as a challenge to the receiver to accept the impossible. Honor the sacred, buy this handcrafted piece.
Size: 21″ x 18″
Comes with 3 sawtooth hangers on the back for all three orientations.
I play a lot of Heroes Of The Storm on the computer and decided to make a plaque for myself. There was no DXF that I could find for the logo so I took it into Illustrator and traced it out. Talk about a beautifully designed logo. Super easy to recreate with it’s flowing lines and such.
I cut the plaque out of a 1/1 solid piece of walnut then put it into my laser cutter and engraved the letters. Furthermore, I 3D milled the 3 blades on the CNC. The plan was originally to laser engrave the detail into the blades and fill with a metallic blue epoxy. Never got that far and probably never will because I’m already onto the next idea.

A fractal puzzle is not like your typical jigsaw puzzle. This 14 piece, “pain in the brain” really makes you think creatively if you want even a chance of solving it. This jagged jigsaw puzzle perplexes people unlike any other. But don’t be frustrated! You surely won’t be the only one who struggles with it. They make an interesting and unique gift and will definitely keep your friends or family busy and thinking of you; specifically how you dragged them into such a headache of a hobby. If you’re persistent, or very good at spacial reasoning, you’ll certainly solve it eventually.
The fractal puzzle’s fun design is precision cut with lasers from a wooden board. It’s 1/8th of an inch thick and only 6 x 6 inches wide, which means you can play this brain game anywhere you go. Take it with you on a road trip, frustrate your friends the whole way to your destination. Or take it on your next flight, give the pilots and stewardess a way to pass the time.
When ordered, it arrives pre-assembled, so you can take a picture and convince others that you solved it once. These puzzles ship from the United States, worldwide. It isn’t impossible to solve, that’s a given, since it comes pre-assembled, but don’t underestimate this puzzle. There haven’t been many reports of people who figured it out, nor have I even solved it yet! No matter, though; because when you do solve it, you can hang it over your fireplace mantel, until someone inevitably takes it apart after you forget how you solved it, of course.
So, try it out! What have you got to lose? You know, besides several hours, days, or weeks of your time?
These puzzles are made and shipped from the Chicagoland area and are mailed as first class mail which takes around 3-4 days to be delivered.
