Introducing Kindling, the Wireless Wooden Reading Device!

Introducing Kindling, the Wireless Wooden Reading Device!

Obsessed with the notion of creating a wooden Kindle, I contacted my friend Windell at Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories. He has experience with and access to a laser cutter. He agreed to help.


The next step was to get a high-res photo. Thanks to Alicia, that was a piece of cake.

After I traced the photo in Inkscape, Windell guided me through the process of preparing the file so that it was fit for laser cutting.

Right away I realized that Windell was not going to settle for an imperfect rendering of a Kindle. We massaged the file.

Finally, on Thursday night I got a text message:


The Kindling arrived in the mail today and it looks awesome!

I have to say, I'm sold on laser cutting!




Special thanks to Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories! Fun, original build demonstrations and kits!
