For the Algea concept we have to test how to work with the Plexiglass tubes we got from Vink, so Bas got his hands on the Kapex and the test cuts looked very smooth.

What Bas and Pasquales concept will look like ? We keep you posted.

So we add the last finishing touches to our box and we are reads to go….Thanks to Heco, who send a refill box for the missing screws we are ready to start our building weeks soon.

Its quite heavy but still able to move, and having a good overview over our assortment makes things much easier …

We visited Wiha our partner for handtools on the fair in Utrecht, now the video is ready, this is the dutch version and when we know how to subtitle a video there will be an english version too...




When the superheroes meet in a comic book its called "crossover"...We decided to do a crossover with Festool and Hettich to learn something about the products of Hettich and what is the best occasion to learn something ? Yes build something next to a very interesting introduction from Hettich in festools headquater in the Netherlands we build also our 6th bucky lab flightcase, our Heco Box. We got Heco Schrauben as a partner for the bucky lab already a time ago and they were so generous to send us every screw they made ...and what do you do with these ....bucky lab style neatly organized in our Raaco Boxxers, but how to travel with these heavy set of screws ...So the old shopping kart was not the best solution and we have now a perfectly shaped box which houses the assortment of Heco. The last finishing touches still missing but the build of the box was a big success, having 5 trainers from festool and the expert from hettich with their hand on the box to make these smooth running multiple drawer organizing box.

We cant wait to see the box in action, to get a short impression of the day have a look, we made a video.

Thanks to Festool, Hettich and Heco and also Raaco for their great support!

We already wrote about our new supplier breur, today we got the stickers and directly applied them.

Looks good and feels even better to have such a good partner for the bucky lab.

We love Kevin Kellys newsletter cool tools, and now he wrote a book about tools, in which he tells, that you dont have to buy any of these tools in the book...its just fine to know that they exist and therefore offers a wide range of opportunities ...that seems to be the best book for our bucky lab, we preordered already one, if its as good as expected we will screw one to our table in the studio !

Cant wait to get it...and to be honest building with pneus again is triggering us also seeing the old footage.

This semster we have a team of students being busy with the implementation of algae in a facade. Inspired of the algae facade project of Arup in Hamburg the students are busy with their design. Today we got a delivery from Vink Kunststoffen BV in Didam with clear PMMA tubes to contain the algaes.

We would like to thank Vink for their grateful contribution and we are excited how the project will continue, we will write about it in the near future.
