We call this relaxing maze the thinking person's fidget spinner. Our How I Built This rolling maze is designed to help you relax and lose track of time. The hypnotic rolling of the chrome steel ball back and forth through the maze will set your mind at ease. Made from layered Baltic birch and acrylic with the How I Built This Logo etched in the middle, this maze is a great gift idea for the puzzlers in your pack! This beautiful and durable maze was designed exclusively for NPR by Bright Beam Goods in Austin, TX.
Bright Beam Goods was founded in 2010 by owners, operators, and makers-in-chief Eve Trester-Wilson and Kristen von Minden. Eve and Kristen are friends who share a background in architecture, a taste for power tools, and a passion for crafting.
The studio at Bright Beam Goods houses a pair of laser cutters and a variety of other tools with which they make their own products, but also help others with theirs. They do custom laser cutting, teach classes, offer memberships, and share their space with a couple dozen like-minded makers. Their workshop is a place where creative types come together to craft, create, collaborate and inspire one another.
At Bright Beam Goods, they believe that handmade things carry more meaning. They are special, unique, imbued with traces of the human hand, and they bring with them a sense of wonder and joy.
They make products they'd love to own—high quality and hand-crafted treasures, both playful and elegant—things that make them smile! Their products range from jewelry to housewares to games
