We designed our Square Register Stand to make collecting payments even easier. A precisely milled rail surrounds the Square reader, creating a track to swipe credit cards with minimal alignment. It’s our solution to collect payments confidently and professionally events—wherever we are!
We were excited to be able to tell the story of Ben Kandel and his wood turning business, TurningPro. The quality of craftsmanship and detail he puts into his work is incredible.

A few years ago I earned my BFA in Menswear, and learned how to create patterns from my own drawings, and sew original garments.
Lately, I've been working for a local company as their lead men's designer, helping to get a couple private-label brands up off the ground with some really sharp collections.
Much of my work is now done on the computer, and our manufacturing is sourced from overseas. That's cool. It enables me to focus more on the creative bits, instead of sewing all day long.
But sometimes I miss getting to work directly with the fabric; finding out what I can and can't do with my little Singer.
So that's where this video comes in.
From finding design details in magazines to sketching, from patternmaking to cutting, and from sewing to pressing, I tried to use some of the skills I've developed over the years to make a nice chambray work shirt for myself.
This is my first ever time-lapse video, and also my first try at editing a video in Final Cut Pro X.
Hope you like it!

In our latest video we explore Genspace, a community biotech lab based in Brooklyn. When most people imagine a research laboratory they usually don't envision it living in an unassuming building on a major urban thoroughfare, but Genspace—one of the first labs of its kind in the US operating at Biosafety Level One—is a fully functioning lab offering a wide variety of high tech equipment to its members. Ranging from research scientists to designers to visual artists, the crowd at Genspace is eclectic to say the least and has something to offer anyone interested in science. With free range to work on personal projects or participate in classes, Genspace members represent a new facet in the ever growing DIY community.
