The Eccentric Cubicle: The Philosophy of Improvisational Fabrication

The Eccentric Cubicle site is up! Including a free sample chapter!

Astound your friends! Amaze your colleagues! Worry your family! Embrace the philosophy of improvisational fabrication and really personalize your office cubicle. Kaden Harris-the unconventional mind behind Eccentric Genius -takes aspiring and die-hard makers into a highly entertaining parallel universe of surreal workplace oriented projects that combine a wide spectrum of basic shop techniques, alternative material sourcing and lateral design paths. From scale model Greco-Roman projectile launchers to mood-enhancing audio visual effects, each project offers a different set of challenges, skills, maker lore and bad puns.

  • The perfect golf swing on your desktop
  • Lucid dream state induction device
  • USB-powered bubble blower
  • An unfathomably convoluted Fog machine
  • A personal guillotine
  • And many other improbable exercises in simple mechanisms and primary tool use for the opposably thumbed

Far more than a collection of project “how-tos”, Eccentric Cubicle offers oblique industrial design and fabrication philosophies, sardonic social commentary and enthusiastic encouragement for Makers to adapt, modify and hack their way though the builds.

Enhance your workshop skill set and bring character and life to your office desktop with Eccentric Cubicle! – Link & get the book at the Maker Store.
