Today we are turning slabs into finished furniture; two resin river nightstands to be exact. However, there is more to these than meets the eye. Our concept was to create nightstands with plenty of storage, that were sleek from the outside, and highly functional without the need for a chord pileup ontop. Here is what we came up with!
This build uses almost every digital tool in our Makerspace, along with plenty of "traditional" woodworking and a resin pour for good measure. For these pieces of furniture we used the CNC Router, Laser Cutter, and 3D Printer. The finished nightstands have 4 hidden USB ports each, a disable Resin Night Light Table Top (done with Total Boat Epoxy), and two wireless charging stations. Enjoy!
About a week or two ago we had a new addition to the shop; the Laguna Laser EX. It is a 150 watt laser with a huge cut area. I wanted to start with a simple project to ensure the calibration was all set and that I could easily get acclimated to the machine controls, so I made what I am calling a "COVID-19 Car Box." In Massachusetts we are now required to wear face masks in all public places so I put together a simple dispenser to hold face masks and rubber gloves that easily fits in a car's center console. This will make it so I will always have what I need to be safe, and it can also be easily refilled and sanitized as necessary.
Father, Maker, and all around fun guy.
