A/C Desk Controller

Since I finished my A/C Controller boards, I wanted to use them in a project and thought that creating custom controls for my desk would be a solid option. There are 2 A/C Controller boards that can control 3 outputs each and those outputs are controlled by a panel on the top of my desk.

Table Saw Sled

Over the weekend I built and sled for my table saw. This is a really cool addition that helps keep your work pieces parallel to the blade without the need of a fence and can support large pieces easier.

A/C Controller Board

Over a decade ago I saw a project that captured me. It’s not new by any stretch, but I find it fascinating. Controlling high voltage (120VAC) with a low voltage (3.3VDC) signal. Some of you may remember the X10 devices that you could get from Radio Shack that was an easy way to create home automation.

New Desk

I needed a new desk for some equipment that I got and had been making do with my old one as it was. My last desk was basically a table and I added a shelf to take advantage of as much room as possible.

Personal Arcade

I have been a gamer for much of my life. I started playing Nintendo with some friends and upgraded to the arcade and various consoles and eventually ended with a PC. I can't express the quantity of quarters I spent playing and enjoyed every minute; I wanted one.

Garage Radio *upgrade*

I wanted to upgrade the original radio to something that looked better and operated even if I had stuff on my hands. I tore apart the old garage back into its parts and spent some time experimenting with enclosure types to get the best sound, and it came out really good.

Edison Lamp

After I collected several larger canning jars, there was a project that I kept thinking of, which was a vintage lamp using an Edison light bulb. Edison light bulbs are very cool looking and have become trendy.

Light Orbs

I had an idea for a picture that included some special lighting for my night photography. Along with being able to write in the air with some extended shutter time, I wanted to create a sort of glowing pools.

Refurbished Desk

I was taking out the trash one afternoon, and I saw a desk that was set off to the side that needed some TLC. First, I was going to put it outside as a garden desk for all the new plants, but as I continued, that idea changed.

Low Power Project

Ever since I have started building “things”, I have always wanted to build a project that uses as little power as possible, while still being intelligent. I opted for a data logging device that will read a pressure sensor in Pascals (VTI 1000) to calculate PSI and Sensirion sensor then save those readings to a microSD card in a .csv format.

Silhouette Box

I've wanted to build a skyline silhouette project for a while now, and I got to get my hands dirty and use a popular WS2812B RGB LED as well. I got to test out my Dremel skills for cutting and creating sharp edges for the city scene too. First project to be powered by batteries (Li-Ion), so low power consumption with high processing power was a unique challenge.

PediPaws Conversion

This project was created to help with pet nails. We had a full family of dogs (3 total) and all of them had healthy nails that needed constant care. We went through all kinds of batteries to keep the nail trimmer going at a good speed, and that was getting costly, and rechargeable batteries were not going to be the answer because of the current pull being so high.

Parking Pass

This project has been made, and re-made and re-made again, but it's a project that's useful in any household, just the kind of projects I like to do. It uses a Ping))) Ultra-sonic Range Finder and controls a small bank of LEDS to indicate parking placement. Simple Red, Yellow, Green reference that everyone is familiar with.

Garage Radio

This project was born out of necessity, I needed a radio in the garage and wanted to use the speakers I had and run everything off one power supply. There is 3 spots for saved stations, and basic scan and volume operation.

Retro Pie

I couldn't wait to get started on this project once I found it online. I had been working on programming, I used a PIR sensor and triggered a terminal window result, very basic. I found an article on www.howtogeek.com and my Pi would never be the same. I quickly found many ROM sites and started testing on each console.

Motion Contolled Bathroom Light

This project was a present to my wife who enjoys night lighting throughout the house. I knew it had to be something simple and that it couldn't interfere with any daily functions, like using the toilet, regular cleaning, and anything else I could think of for regular use.

Weather Station & Binary Clock

This started out as a simple desk binary clock fun toy and it turned into a more complex project once it stayed home. I always wanted a weather station toy from those cool Brookstone stores, and I got to do one even better, build it. I learned a lot about weather stations and the regulations they need to be authenticated and used by any weather collection.

Solar Radio

I have an affinity for solar related projects, and music in general; so naturally a radio that can recharge using solar panels while out hiking is a logical next move. Standard radio controls, Scan, Volume, and 3 Saved Channels and power switch.
