I haven’t posted on here in a while but this game is awesome. Check here for the download…


Hill Bomb

This looks like a lot of fun.

Wood Desk and Benches

I thought these were cool. I don’t remember where any of them came from… found them lurking on my hard drive and I figured I might as well put them on here.

6,400 Miles with Ruben Alcatara

Some really awesome footage in this edit.

American Hand

Sorry for the lack of posts as of late. Had to post this up… American Hand is a series of documentaries, created by Jon Walley,  detailing the thoughts and processes that go into making American-made products. This video shows how FBM makes their frames…

Here is the description from the Vimeo page:

Joby Springsteen is a welder, musician & friend from Binghamton NY. He works for FBM Bikes, enjoys long walks on the beach, making his own music gear and eating Freschott pizza. Joby is part of a company that has grounded itself in DIY and American made pride since its very birth, people like Joby and FBM make us proud to ride bikes.

F&Y Wood Handlebars

Found these while browsing around. I’m kind of surprised that I’ve never seen any companies do this before. They are designed by F&Y which is based in Canada. They look really nice but I don’t know how much I would like riding with out any kind of shock absorbing material on the bars….


These are really awesome. The Stickbulb designed by Rux, is made from recycled scrap wood, some of which was salvaged from the coney island boardwalk, and led light strips creating a modern, sleek light source. Here is the product description from their site:

New York City based design firm RUX re-imagines the light bulb with its latest collection, the versatile, playful, and strikingly simple StickBulb. The design and manufacturing for the LED powered StickBulb is done in RUX’s New York City workshop using a wide variety of materials, from maple to sun-bleached Ipe salvaged from the Coney Island boardwalk.

Madera – Tom Villarreal Edit

Awesome edit…

Black Walnut Bowl

So this is my first attempt at making a bowl on a wood lathe. I glued 5 scrap planks of black walnut together, which I had leftover from another project, to create the blank that was used to make the bowl. This photo shows the bowl with one coat of a tung oil.

Blink Steady Bike Light

Finally someone has designed a nice looking bike light that you can leave installed on you bike when you have to lock it up. This light is waterproof and features torx screws so it’s harder to steal. The project was posted on kickstarter and has gone into full production, you can check that out here if you’re interested in picking one up. They start at $95 and feature an automatic on/off mechanism that is triggered by darkness, so once its installed you don’t have to do much besides change the batteries.
