The Japanese are pretty crazy when it comes to their wood working joinery skills. I remember reading somewhere that it’s all due to the lack of raw materials on the islands. That meant that they couldn’t use nails, or forge large iron plates to connect timber together, instead they had to come up with these … Continued
For real, who would have thought years ago that we would be spending time watching animals drink water from a bucket on a farm? This is the type of nature show you want to watch. Except, maybe in the wild, not on a farm, with picturesque farm animals. It is neat though seeing how the … Continued
Often called a Pop bottle rocket, or something similar. This is something else entirely. This is a true multi-stage rocket powered by water and air that reaches up to 800 feet in altitude. I particularly like the Red, White, and Blue “exhaust” I remember spending Saturday afternoons with the car compressor and a cork launching … Continued
This is pretty neat, ETM: Exploration Through Motion is an interesting view of a once static asset. A team of students from the Philadelphia University created this as their final project in Design 1. Together, they took the Thomas Moran painting “Grand Canyon of the Colorado River”, and made a 3D laser cut map diorama … Continued

The most impressive part of this marble run is the fact that much of it is carved out of food. Look at the organic shapes made. It must have taken the guy ages to get all that detail in it. It doesn’t hurt that marble runs are just fun to watch.
Well, more accurately, it’s a single sub-woofer, not an entire system. And, technically, it’s made of LEGO(R) compatible blocks. But hey, let’s stop with the specifics, it’s a speaker, it’s DIY, and it’s gotten me on an urge to make my own – properly. This LEGO speaker was built by reddit user /u/FanOfSport. It’s pretty … Continued
I gotta say, while the practicality of this might not be as good as a flimsy one bought at Bed Bath and Beyond, you can rest assured that this hand forged spatula will never fail you. It’s solid as a rock and will scrape burgers off the grill with ease. Summer is still 6 months … Continued
