Can you check out the torch below you?

You put together textures in MSPaint?

Photoshop isn't necessarily the only option, I just happened to have it conveniently in ~/Applications and not MSPaint.

Paint.net is good too.

Yeah, it's more manual than the 'shopping though. I'm too simple to use complicated programs so i have to us something I can fare with :D Pretty much every program that hadles .png format and resizing can be used, I guess.

Yeah. It's not too program specific.

I see room redecoration in my future, once I get a color printer. Might even put LEDs in them.

Just curious..... Isn't a minecraft block just 1m tall? Cuz Notch is Swedish. Which means that he probably uses the metric system. Which (since the player character is just short of two blocks tall) makes him approximately 1.7 or 1.8 meters tall. That's right around 5'8". Also, torches are then about .5m tall, which makes them approximately 18 inches tall. That's not bad for an actual torch.

Anyway, great instructible! I also found a way to make a slightly less accurate torch that actually lights up the room. Kinda cool as well.

Yeah, Minecraft blocks are meant to be a meter tall. I wanted to try to be as accurate as possible, but the available print sizes only allowed for a foot tall torch.

Ah. wasn't sure, given that it sounded like you were using a Minecraft Door as the standard for measuring height. Although that's not as absurd as the derivation of the foot (yay King Charlemagne). Definitely glad to see that someone has taken Minecraft Papercraft to a point where it's not über-small-scale.

Actually, you're right. I only realized later that MC blocks were a cubic meter. I think it worked out well enough. The paper problem was still a big factor in the sizing of the torch.

Put one of those lightbulb candles in the tip

I tried, but since cardboard is on all the long sides, you can only see a little light through the top.

However, it is really satisfying to put a flashlight in the tube before the top goes on and call it a torch.

..... Light it on fire? That seems like it would work

author

Well, it's flammable...

I guess if that's how you want to use it. Just remember to rate based on the Instructable, not how long it burns. ;D
