31  Mini Laptop Desk in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by foldingj on: May 07, 2007 09:16:45 PM
A friend of mine purchased a laptop and asked if I could make a small work station desk for him. But he had specifications for it. It had to be a certain height (so he could sit in his favorite yet ugly chair), easily movable (small room and too much foot traffic), and have compartments for various gadgets (typical guy is a gadget freak). Of course, I met his request with the skill that only I possess. lol. I made the base of the desk from an old office chair (perfect height and it has wheels, killing two criteria at once). I had some scrap wood laying around and some stain and built the rest from scratch. Compartments for speakers, external hard drive and webcam, and the bottom holds a full sized keyboard (because typing on a laptop sucks). I put in various holes to accommodate all the wiring and to help keep everything concealed. Not too bad if I must say so and my friend absolutely loved it. Tell me what you think and check out my other posts. Enjoy

32  Bathroom Reading in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by foldingj on: May 07, 2007 09:07:15 PM
Hey, a guy NEEDS something to read while taking care of business in the bathroom. So I made (yeah for myself) a magazine holder in the bathroom. It is conveniently located just below eye level while sitting on the throne directly in front of you. And it holds my favorite magazine. Actually, it is holding about 5 at the moment. lol. But I like to have options. Enjoy and don't forget to check out my other posts.

33  Bagua in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by foldingj on: May 01, 2007 06:05:58 PM
Originally used to ward off evil spirits. Some place them by the windows (or at least that is what I have seen in the movies). Anyway, I threw these together the other day. Scrap wood, made a stencil, ebony stain and some paint. The white ones, when looked at close and in person, look like they are made from stone. Voila. No more evil spirits. Or no more rings on the table. I think they will make great coasters too. lol

34  Tribal Alien Skull in Stenciling: Completed Projects by foldingj on: April 24, 2007 04:39:26 PM
OK, so this was a quick and dirty stencil project for me. I have been working 13 hour night shifts for the past 2 months and have only recently returned to the land of the living. But I HAD to do something to put my name in the pot for this challenge. If I would have had more time to devote to the project, I could have done something a little better, but maybe next time. Anyway, I came across this image on DeviantArt.com, made a few minor adjustments to it, and stenciled it on a simple gray shirt. Sure, the shirt isn't extravagant, but it is soft, comfortable, and MANLY. Yeah, there aren't many of us MEN on here so I had to represent. Besides, what says TATTOO better than Tribal Alien Skull. lol. Enjoy

35  Horror Box in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by foldingj on: April 20, 2007 11:06:30 AM
A friend of mine has been tracking my projects lately and decided to bring over something for me to work on. He brought over a simple wood chest / box. Nothing special, plain and simple, as you can see from the "Before Pics". He gave me free reign on what to do with the box. He said I could simply paint it, stain it, or even fix it so that it opened by remote and had a spinning disco ball inside (trust me, I seriously thought about that last one and I think I could have pulled it off). Instead, I decided on something WAY out of the ordinary. I decided to make a horror box. I painted up the outside to look like patches of skin, cut out the seams to give it some depth, and stapled the seam. Sort of a Frankenstein effect. I lined the box with leather (pieces of fake leather place mats from Walmart). I added some eyes to the top and stuffed the box with some body parts. Well, what else would a box made from skin have in it? I hope he likes it. lol. Just another unique creation from this twisted mind of mine. Enjoy

Holy rusted metal Batman. I can't believe that I have only Just Now found this thread. I have a few projects that I have already posted in other areas, but I would love to share them here. Feel free to check out my links to my superhero projects as well as the rest of the items I have posted (available through profile of course). Because I must say, I can make some kick ass stuff. lol. Enjoy and all feedback is welcome.

Swap items sent to GM4STYLE by foldingj. GM4STYLE asked me to post some pics of the items for him. He has already received them and is very very pleased. Don't you just love a good ego stroke. Anyway, here they are. Items consist of two stenciled t-shirts, customized picture frame with some skull art (zoom in on the skull to notice that it is made up by the positioning of 7 naked women, very cool), poker chip fridge magnets, skull fridge magnets, and one very cool, custom made, paper lantern lamp (complete with oriental pull string medalion, and river rock base to give that ZEN feeling, even the paper has rose pedals in it) Anyway, enjoy and I can't wait for the next one.

40  Computer Desk Mod (re-post) in Completed Projects by foldingj on: January 29, 2007 07:22:20 PM
Wasn't sure where to post this, so I decided to post it again here.
 I finally finished that computer desk mod that I had been working on. In an attempt to find yet more things to do with all those computer parts that I came upon, I decided to modify the computer desk cabinet that houses the computer. I used some of the face plates from those computers that were so graciously donated to me, and made my own fake computer server. I took one of the power supplies from said computers (took a while to find one that worked semi-properly) and wired it up to the desk. I installed some nice blue LED's behind the computer faces and purchased some blue cathode tube lights (the kind made for computer case mods) and wired those tubes under the desk, all powered by the power supply previously mentioned. During the day, it looks pretty good, but night time is when this project really shines. (no pun intended)  Once again, it's amazing what you can do with alot of imagination and a few spare / scrap parts. Feel free to check out my other posts to see what I did with some of the other computer parts as well as some other crafty items. Enjoy
