Actually if you know how to model in a 2d program such as 3ds max or blender, you can create a 3d model then print it with a 3d printer or have someone (a website like shapeways offers this service) do it for you :3
It might not be as hands on but its still a useful piece of information to know
hell if i had the money I would print my own utensils, flipflops, dishes, jewlery, everything (they print in ceramic, metal, various plastics) xD

Whoops, type, 3D program** lol

Cool post! I just happen to be the same age as you :P I am curious about the drivers you used (speakers). I have a pair of headphones that I would like more bass response and overall sound quality for gaming, etc. You did not say much about the electrical part of the project. I am interested on what drivers you used and how they sound. Thanks, Squidyman

And the second to last photo of your project is really funny because it looks like your foot is way smaller than the driver XD

You are going to do some great things in life. The fact that you are this creative and crafty @ such a young age is very impressive.

Is it a bit foggy there?

Nope, just bad camera
Ah, it looks like there is stuff on the lens, have you tried cleaning it? I had a five year old camera before my new one and I had a problem like this but it was just dusty on the lens

Well Its on a phone, but I cleaned it anyways
Oh, ok.
