Well another christmas of wooden gifts has come and gone… Thought I’d share my favorites!

Saw this on a techie website so I ordered a few sets of the “guts” and made some ez mitre veneer boxes for some fun Christmas gifts.

Basically a machine who’s sole purpose is to turn itself off… Flip the switch, a finger raises and flips the switch back off… Simple enough but oddly entertaining.

If you want the mechanical kit or more info here is the site

What a fun toy! And a very nicely done box as well.
