While the ol' pencil through the paper lesson on how spacetime works is soooo played out in movies, it's still pretty rad as a pencil/pen/stylus holder for your desk!  (Large version pictured)

This was originally designed as a promotional item for the 2015 Seattle Art Fair, but I've retooled it, improved it, and am now sharing it with all my fellow nerds.

These shelves have provided me with more personal joy than I could ever have anticipated!  My cat is super cute, but these shelves somehow magnify her cuteness tenfold.  I'll pass by the bedroom and look over and, BAM!  It's the cat doing something crazy cute on the shelf!  

Some cats are "tree cats" and some are "bush cats".  My cat is a tree cat and loves to be up high, looking down at us with imperious contempt.  She now spends most of the day on these shelves and it's really great for when people come over since she feels like she can get up high to escape any unwanted affections brought on by her ridiculous cuteness.  ANYWAY...  this is my shelf and I love it.

Please note that my cat weighs 7 lbs so she's tiny.  The shelf, as is, should work with cats up to 10 lbs, but if you have a big cat and a big printer, you can just scale the file up as large as you need.  Included in the download is a hollow version with 3mm walls which can be scaled up without increasing material use by too much.  

Also, you will need to get some carpet of your choice and adhere it to the top of the shelf. Bath mats also work well, or you can get smaller pieces of carpet, or carpet samples from hardware stores.  To adhere it in place, you can use actual carpet tape, or 3M foam strips, or whatever you have lying around-- it won't need a ton of sticking power since the shelf is designed with a recessed area for the carpet, it just needs something to keep it from sliding around. Once the shelf is mounted, you can fill the screw holes with white silicone caulk, and while you're at it you might as well squeeze some of that caulk between the shelf and the wall to make things extra sturdy.

My wife had a vision for our entryway. She wanted to get a small vintage mantle where we could have a place to put our keys and display small vases or sculptures.  Unfortunately, we quickly learned that this isn't something that's easy to find if it exists at all.  All the vintage mantles we found were enormous so I decided to design and print one myself.

Since my wife is originally from St. Louis, I decided on giving the mantle a fleur-de-lis motif.  I also added a large slot that can be used for both keys and mail. To help prevent things from falling off the mantle's ledge, there are circular recessed areas to put vases, sculptures, or anything else one may want to display.

It's a Pornemon/HomeThings Crossover episode! 

Can birds even get fat?  I suppose turkey's are pretty fat for a bird, but could a bird become, say, morbidly obese?  And what if said obese bird could also be a charming planter?  Those are the questions which the Fat Bird Planter seeks to answer!  Fat Bird Planter also includes a uniquely placed drainage hole and a butt-dish to catch any runoff to keep your plants nice and happy. 

Also, if you buy this on Shapeways, you get it in glazed ceramic! They 3D-print a mold that is then used to cast Fatbird in real ceramic which is then glazed and fired in a normal kiln.  How rad is that?
