Lightsaber Wall Hooks

Laser Cutting Project

A good friend of mine needed something to mount his lightsaber over his desk. Happy to have an excuse to use the laser cutter I offered to help. I asked for some basic dimensions and then quickly modeled a hook that could be easily cut from acrylic and assembled in two parts. This could also be done with 3D printing but I think the acylic has a much more refined look.

The final look turned out quite good! But I would use thicker acrylic next time. 3/16″ is just a bit too thin and I had to re-cut because it cracked when I tried to join the pieces.

FJ Cruiser Customization

Modular Storage System

Here’s a fun summer project I did to add some extra storage and a sleeping space to my FJ.

I started by getting measurements of different parts of the truck bed.

It has a lot of irregular shapes because the seats pushed down cause a slope which makes building a flat frame difficult.

As the dimensions became more complex I soon found that I needed to do more 3D represenations so a rough isometric view helped to figure out how all the parts would fit together.

I then found materials and cut to size. Most of the materials were used from salvaged plywood and boards but I did need to buy some long bolts and some carpet for the surface.

The finished design! All camping gear stored neatly underneath.
