CoPiLot : Mobile Media Center PC
Great write-up! I think the most surprising thing to me is that the resistance varies so greatly depending on the species of wood. It makes me question the accuracy of those standalone meters that don't take wood species into account.
Wow, this looks really good! I'm going to have to find some duck.

Reusing Old Hard Drive Magnets
Most of the ones that I've taken apart had 2. Some of them have only one, and I think they are made this way because they want to annoy me!Keep in mind that laptops have pretty small ones, and HDD's from desktop computers normally have really big ones.
Yeah, I would say 1 or 2. You will usually only get about a square inch of Neodymium out of one of these drives, but if you are like me you probably have a few old drives hanging around.
Arduino Time & Temp Display Shield
My 2 tb hard drive failed recently and i was wondering, how many magnets are in a hard drive?
Making Mindstorms RCX Work Again
Pipe Furniture Projects
Easily Print an Unusual Shape
Very nice and neatly constructed.
And it's a way to add the nicer features of newer, higher end tool boxes to one that didn't originally come with it.

I wonder if you could make an entire Sicilian pie like this and still have it cook all the way through?
This looks amazing!

Simple Arduino Wing Shield
Very interesting, thanks. I think I glossed over this option because it didn't seem to support the RCX anymore but I can see there is still limited support. I like that it is still based on a building block GUI that kids can use without learning a text based programming language.
Very nice and good use of less expensive materials.
By far, the easiest way to program the RCX on a modern PC is to install the firmware with BricxCC, and program it in Robolab 2.x. They both work great under Windows 7, and Robolab is vastly superior to the default programming environment.
Uncluttering phone wires
Arduino-Plex: Plexiglass Arduino Work Surface
Great job! I bet you'll have plenty of natural edge slab lumber lying around for other projects.
Ukulele Hero or a Guitar Hero controller for Toddlers
Adirondack Chairs (Muskoka)
Very nice solution. Does it ever miss the IR signal?
Sounds delicious. I've only ever seen the criss-cross pattern on peanut butter cookies.
Very nice and versatile. I really like multi-use workspaces.
Tomahawk Survival Axe (that opens beers!)
