I was doing a wheelie down the center lane of the Golden Gate Bridge the other day. Why, you ask? Well, I had a flat front tire and no wrench with which to remove the wheel. (I always ride in the middle lane, not gonna let a silly flat change who I am.)
We drew names for Christmas this year, and I got my cousin and my brother-in-law. Naturally, the first thing that came to mind was a plywood slingshot.
The slings are inspired from watching numerous Joerg Sprave YouTube videos. Mr. Sprave is probably the friendliest scary guy on the ‘tube.
After upgrading our phones to the new iPhone 5, I felt a bit uneasy about resting the anodized aluminum surface on our concrete tables, concrete counters, concrete toilet and concrete dinner plates. I was convinced our 100% concrete lifestyle was not going to work with the delicate back of this new phone. But then, the Tinkering Monkey Bark Back for iPhone was born. After posting a few photos of the prototypes online, it seemed like just about everyone we knew also had a lot of concrete and would love a wooden protective back on their phone.
For anyone who golfs seriously, the rare unicorn fart that is the hole-in-one is dreamed of, but seldom found. Paula’s dad, Ken, is one of the lucky few to catch that ephemeral poof of pixie dust. This achievement called for a special gift to emblazon his Hurculean effort on the walls of Chang Manor for all time.
Hey small business owners! We launched our Square Register Stand last week, and thanks to you guys, it was an instant hit. We’ve been working hard on fulfilling your orders and listening to all of your feedback. It seems that many of you have questions about our upcoming features, which we’re going to answer here in as much detail as we can.
Our three exciting updates:
- Tilting feature for customer interaction
- Free logo etching. Seriously.
- Super sleek, 100% acrylic version
We’re primarily an online shop, but once in a while, we’ll host an open studio event, in which we open our doors to the public. Our first event was exciting and hectic. We greeted old friends and met new customers, many of whom were placing orders that night. Our hands were full, and with our next event less than two weeks away, we decided that a better solution was in order.
We find that the easiest way to take orders is using the Square Register app on our iPad. However, holding the iPad all night with the fragile Square card reader sticking out of the headphone port is not ideal. We wanted a station where we could secure the iPad and protect the protruding card reader—both from bumps and possible sticky fingers. The station had to be easy to use, and have a simple aesthetic.
The Square Register Stand has been a huge help to us. We think it could be useful for other small businesses as well, which is why we’re offering it in our shop. Buy the Square Register Stand »
