I gave these away as Christmas presents. They are useless machines whose only function is to turn itself off. The basic design was from Make Magazine and I made the boxes from a mahogany board. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p7Z3I6HLqiA

I remember seeing these a long time ago and thought they were awesome. I would also be interested in plans if anyone comes across them… hint hint….

For those interested in the plans, it looks like they are available online for free (I made mine from the article in the magazine, but the online plans look like they are the same). Here is the URL: http://makezine.com/projects/the-most-useless-machine/

They may be a useless machine but they look very nice.
