This is a useful cd rack and easy to build.
1: Make two 18x18 layers of flat plates.
2: Make this with blocks of 3 in height and 1 in width.
3: Add another layer on it, with flat plates with 1 in height and 1 in width.
4: Add plates of 1 in height and 2 in width like this.
5: Repeat this as many times as many CD's you want it to hold. End with a block layer, not a 2-width-plate layer.
6: Place two flat layers on top.
7: Insert CD's.

8: Make this.
9: Add it to the thing, and also the other things you see.

Step 3: Cup Mat

This pen is actually very weak, except when you glue it

Cool stuff!

I've never seen the bricks of step 3. Where do they come from.

Keep on the good work, Lego genius!

they are not rare per say but not common, im sure you can buy packs of them -- i found most of mine from the 'rock raiders' kind of sets because they were used to mount 'lights' on (the green christal things). man i loved lego

Cool.... But most of them seem to rely on having "rare" pieces.
Not necessarily. The more "mechanical" kits (what are they called?) with gears and stuff have all of your "rare" pieces.
Yeah, they're called "Lego Technic"
Thank you. I couldn't remember what their "official" name is.

No only for the cup mat you need a lot of some kind of brick, and for the puzzles you need a lot of flat plates, that's it.
And the cd rack, you need a lot of platforms.

That's not so much. I think most people with legos have enough to make that. I have enough to make about 15 of those, but not all in those colors.
yup 100% right, you might have to use different colors, but its all the same in the end :)
You are really creative with Legos.
