Today we are proud to release our Weekly Staff Picks!
For the most part, creating unusual objects and more practical stuff are two completely separate interests, but at NextFab Studio, they manage to coexist. 

Whether it be engineering marvels or random creative inspirations; we simply can’t get enough of the stuff.  In appreciation of our varied interests, we have decided to share our favorite items with the rest of the world… Hopefully they will catch your eye too!

And Here are Our Picks for this Week:
