New In the MakerShed: MakeDo

If you were watching Make: Live on Friday you may have caught a glimpse of MakeDo and the robot dog I made for the show.

MakeDo, now available in the Maker Shed, is a unique set of reusable connectors for creating things from the stuff around you. Reuse items like cardboard, plastic and fabric to create structures, costumes, furniture, and decorations. When you are done, just pull your creation apart and reuse the connectors to make something else. Everyone who handles the connectors will find a new use for them. This incredibly versatile and addictive building system is only limited by your imagination! Available in 65 or 170 piece sets. And no, you can’t have my robot dog.


I am the Evangelist for the Maker Shed. It seems that there is no limit to my making interests. I'm a tinkerer at heart and have a passion for solving problems and figuring out how things work. When not working for Make I can be found falling off my unicycle, running in adverse weather conditions, skiing down the nearest hill, restoring vintage motorcycles, or working on my car.
