New Geek of the Week

Wow.  A few weeks ago I discovered the MAKEzine blog, which is a full of incredibly talented and committed hardware hackers and 3D printer using types.  I'm currently sat behind my desk, preparing for an inspection tomorrow (yes its 20.45 on a sunday night), but I felt like taking a quick peek at Make while I waited for a document to print.  15 minutes later I've just finished watching Michael Egger make a Video Bass and felt compelled to share it with more than just my Dad, Brother and Twitter followers.

Its 15 minutes long, but its just great to see the lengths to which he goes to make his guitar.
I've never seen Plywood being bent like that - I had no idea it could be that simple. Think I might start a mid-century furniture workshop...or build a boat bike.

(But, ha, it looks like he can't weld very well).
