A visit to Amsterdam's Rembrandtshuis (Rembrandt's House) museum and a wooden etching press used in the 17th Century inspired Bill Ritchie to make a working model. From the original 50 pieces he simplified it down to 20 - and it really prints!
Ric Miller, a retired Boeing engineer, made the simpler one using his CNC router. The design won the Silver Award at the A'Design Award and Contest in Milan.
