Default I just discovered Matthias Wandel

I'm just passing along this reference in hopes that viewers will be inspired by this guy. What an interesting fellow... he must be a genius.

I've only viewed a few of his projects, and got a real kick out of his "wasp sucking machine." Go to his Home Page, then to Insane Contraptions, then to Wasp Sucking Machine. I hope you'll enjoy seeing the projects, as much as I did.

I have seen most of his stuff on youtube and his website. Really clever bloke.

I like that he figures things out and makes something instead of throwing money at it.
Everything depends on how you look at it.

He did a crude/simple but effective marble shooting airgun that I found interesting..

Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain..

Don't forget, he has another site, as well.

It's great, for those of us, who occasionally, work with that splintery, brown stuff.

I randomly ran across his pantorouter website last week (google it), it gave me the sudden urge to go make a bunch of wood furniture and bed frames.

I only wish he would stop limiting himself to Baltic birch solutions.

Just because he uses Baltic Birch dosen't mean you have to. There is a guy mentioned on his site that made a Pantorouter out of aluminum extrusions. No wood (or plywood) at all in that build.

I'm building his Screw Advance Box Joint Jig, no Birch ply specified in it. Just Maple and Pine. Plus hardware of course.
