The Thread Wrapping Machine


[vimeo w=600&h=337]

Designer Anton Alvarez has conjured up a fascinating contraption for joining materials together with thread and glue called The Thread Wrapping Machine.

The Craft of Thread Wrapping was born with this tool that I designed and manufactured. It is a new way of making that has originated from years of my own personal research, beginning with my background in cabinetmaking and leading into my years of conceptual and process-based design research.

  1. What a great craft idea really neat I love it but can it only work with two folk using or can it be worked by one I love this

  2. I was pretty let down by this article. I thought someone had built a robot that would index various posts on internet forums, add a beat, and rap them.
