1  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / Throne of Thrones on: July 03, 2014 07:29:51 PM
Got inspired from an instructables Iron Throne and decide I needed my own Game of Thrones decoration. It's a mix of dollar store plastic swords and some wood trim made pointy. Goes great with my Jon Snow costume: http://rob.emery.net/costumes/costumes.htm

3  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / 3D Tic Tac Toe on: February 19, 2010 09:27:32 AM
My mom wanted one so I used the stained glass soldering technique to make it. I carved notches in the glass for the marble locations.
Clear (starlike) marbles vs. opaque marbles. To play fair, don't use the middle spot.

4  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Recycled Toddler Toy on: December 08, 2009 10:23:07 AM
I made this piece out of recycled stuff for my nephew. The picture frame is an old one, the wire I found, the plumbing wasn't needed anymore. I bent and threaded the wire, added some wooden bobbles (bought, I don't have a lathe so couldn't match that quality) and bolted them down. The other side of the bolt is covered with more leftover wood to prevent scratching a table.

5  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Recycled tables on: November 19, 2009 09:55:55 AM
I've recovered wood folks have thrown out and turned it back into furniture. These tables are small enough you can make them from almost any scraps. The top and bottom don't even need to be from the same thickness of wood. Textured paint helped hide any scratches or dents in the wood. You can let your creativity loose for the supports.

The larger one was made from a fridge sized box/crate. The wood's an ugly particle board, but add a dark coat of paint and it looks fine. I eventually added metal trim to the edges to make them look cleaner though. The look was inspired from plane wings and submarine towers. It's strong enough to support a full pitcher of water at the wingtips.
6  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / 1yr old Scifi Playtoy on: November 15, 2009 07:59:21 AM
My nephew has an obsession with latches and buttons (another budding engineer in the family?) so I made him this playset.
The centerpiece is a borg alcove lightning thing which is voice and sound activated so if he presses a button, bangs on the plexiglass or giggles it flashes. It also displays a little when the motor of the disco ball is on. There's also a plasma globe on the right, more flashing LED baubles at the front, and a blue button with a countdown beeper. At the cardinal points of the lightning thing are fiber optics with flashing lights that's governed by the trackball so when he moves it one way one set flashes, and so on. The strip at the front is assorted bits of holographic paper/plastic I had left over from other projects, as well as a strip of liquid crystal which changes colour with temperature (so can show you the outline of your hand or finger if you put it on it for a second). Everything's under thick enough plexiglass I can walk on it.

7  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Reconstructed glasses on: November 15, 2009 07:43:54 AM
I had a few pairs of broken sunglasses (arms in one, lens in the other), so recombined them into one I liked even better. I opted for an armless version, sewing an elastic glasses strap with slight tension to the frame to keep them in place. The lens from one was cut to fit the better frame from the other and added with little bolts. It was great as the snug fit meant it was hard for snow/wind/rain to be blown in, and the armless design was much more durable (more compact and less to break). The glasses strap meant it never fell off my face in a fall or when looking down, and was always handily around my neck when not in use. It lasted through another 6 years of climbing/crawling/hiking adventures.

8  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Princess Bride Sword on: November 13, 2009 08:28:00 AM
Inigo's might be out of my league so I went for a Man In Black style. The pommel and guard are brazed together. The guard and handle wrap are an old shoelace and some string.

9  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Underwater MP3 Case (or water resistant container) from a Sport Walkman on: November 13, 2009 08:17:24 AM
This water resistant MP3 player case was made from an old Sport Walkman. I removed the guts and added an earphone plug (from a set the airlines give you) inside so you can connect to any mp3 player/phone that fits. I use the water resistant headphones that came with the Walkman. It was successfully tested with swims at 3 foot depth (pool) and clips nicely to your bathing suit. You don't have access to buttons but press play with a long enough playlist before you go into the water and you won't need them. You can also put cash, car keys/clicker and credit cards in there when you're off to the beach. Also protects from sand/mud/etc.

10  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Robin Hood Shot Display on: November 12, 2009 08:40:43 AM
My Dad managed to split an arrow with another at the archery range so I decided it had to be framed. I made this one from some leftover wood, metal trim and a plate.
