This here combines two of our favorite things: German engineering and bacon, delicious bacon. Here's the Textor TS750 high-speed slicer in action: That's their Einzelscheiben ("single slice") machine. But how do they slice them into those neatly-nested packages we buy at the supermarket? Using their TS700, which can do

I'll always prefer working with wood over metal and plastic, because wood is such a forgiving material. Inevitably when you're working with the stuff, you're going to screw up, usually when you've run out of stock and are on a tight deadline. Here Marc Spagnuolo, a/k/a the Wood Whisperer, shows
Designers Lisa Siedlecki and Jennifer Silbert worked in fashion and architecture, respectively, two industries where they saw their share of wasted materials.

Operating under the motto "When all hell bakes loose," Seattle-based Lauren Ko creates pun-captioned pies that look like they should be in a design museum. Incredibly, 30-year-old Ko only began baking a year ago, and she's not a designer by training; her day job is at Seattle Colleges, where she's
I walk by 513 Grand Street fairly often, it's on the way to my cousin's house, and what struck me is that in a city full of older buildings, the style of 513 Grand marks it as one of the oldest. By today's standards it's a very small house and
