About BaumBuilds

Welcome to BaumBuilds.com. My name is Al Baum. I am an inventor and mechanical engineer. This website is intended to share my inventions and interests with others. My niche is designing and building vehicles, then making build plans that fully document my designs so that others can duplicate them. Most vehicles are specifically designed to be built without expensive machine shop tools. Although a lathe and milling machine would be useful, only my most advanced designs require this equipment in order to be fabricated. A lot of work goes into the production of the build plans, yet I offer them at a reasonable price.

My Inventions

This website highlights my vehicle designs. My vehicle line-up is 11 strong and growing, with more designs in the works. Most of my inventions are fun, and unconventional! Along with the design and construction of my vehicles, I like to create a demonstration video to feature each vehicle or invention. In addition to the videos, more recently I have been creating a brand for each vehicle, complete with a logo just for the fun of it. You can browse through my inventions and purchase the build plans in the Products section. Each invention page will also contain general information, photos, and a demonstration video.
