Make Podcast: Rube Goldberg Contraption Machine Made Out of Sticks and Stones

When I found out that Jesse and Nate make Rube Goldberg style contraptions, I challenged them to come up to my family’s nature preserveand make a contraption out of sticks, stones, and twine.


We gathered up on Whidbey and for a weekend messed around in the woods during the day and roasted marshmallows on the beach at night. Andru came up with the idea to use threesomes of stones to form a wandering domino effect and Jake transformed into a human sawing machine.


Make sure to check out Nate’s 3D photos of all the setups over at! Check back soon to see the “making of” video with tips and tricks for making your own Rube Goldberg contraption machine!
