Mild mannered furniture designer by day, mad inventor and dreamer after hours.
I was the lead designer and president of Stengel Enterprises, Inc. I have been designing and selling commercial furniture for almost 30 years with a specialization in technology furniture, like multimedia lecterns, conference tables and computer training desks. My designs are in hundreds of universities, corporate training rooms and government installations across the US, and around the world. I hold several utility patents and a design patent.
but my imagination is much bigger than just commercial furniture... I am collaborating on a number of weird projects with some like minded individuals..
I built the first 3d printer as a first step in building a Cartesian CNC (openbuilds, TinyG, cartesian 1500 x 1000 x 75mm) for home hobby woodworking (before the X-carve craze) but quickly fell in love with FDM.
I am mostly designing parts and tools right now to share... but I hope to have more time to design fun stuff soon.
