In collaboration with U-M industrial design professor Jan-Henrik Andersen who helped with the three-dimensional work, Baker came up with a very distinctive product line, which he named Natural Radius Grip or NRG tools. Made from a durable thermoplastic called Santoprene, they have bright green curved grips and are lighter than conventional tools. A variety of patents are pending on the design.

This isn't unfamiliar territory for Baker. Radius Garden is the fourth start-up he has worked on, however, it's the first one that is all his own. The others include Arbortext, an IT services company and a childrens book company.
