Scrabble Keyboard

A custom keyboard made from Scrabble tiles. Sweet to see that the craftsmanship extends well beyond just having the tiles as buttons and the overall piece is great to behold. Linkvia Gizmodo

Chocolate Scrabble

The rise and rise and eventual lawsuit over Scrabulous has shown that people love their Scrabble. Now you can even eat it with this decidedly unofficial Scrabble chocolate bar. They seem to be out of stock, but if they do come back, try and get them before Hasbro's lawyers do. link

Gigantic Scrabble

Scrabble is an obsession and I can completely understand why a couple would show so much love for the game that they would make an absolutely huge waterproof version for their backyard. Yup, it's lawn Scrabble and there's nothing wrong with that.He fashioned the board from pavers laid in a bed of sand — 225 of them, to be exact. He installed them all in one day and had the back pain to prove it.Jane Crane painted the bonus square in the proper colors and made letter tiles from craft-store wood plaques. She took apart shelves and reconfigured the pieces to make tile racks, and pavers and tiles were sealed to prevent water damage.Now Scrabble games at the Crane house are a physical as well as mental pursuit. The players have to get out of their seats to place their tiles on the board and pick new ones from the selection spread out face down in the grass.They haven't faced many challenges, other than having to light patio torches when darkness falls or dealing with the few times their dog, Maggie, has run across the game board. If it rains, they just take the game inside — on a regulation Scrabble board, that is.But you know, Jane Crane said, it's not as much fun. Link via Neatorama

There's a bird under my refrigerator. What do I do? Answered

An hour or two ago, there was a commotion out on my balcony; and then the cat came zooming in, dashing around and knocking things over. She ended up ferociously scrabbling for something underneath the refrigerator. Now, every so often the birds call from out on the balcony, I hear a bird call from the kitchen, and the cat is back to trying to launch an attack on the territory underneath the fridge. I don't really want to have to haul the fridge out from its place, but I don't want a bird trapped under there either. Any ideas?

Planning a puzzle house

In another year or so we're hoping to buy an "investment opportunity" house and, as we're fixing it up, I would LOVE to add a house-wide puzzle leading to a final prize.  Ideally the mystery would start with seemingly decorative scrabble tiles in the guest bathroom and take the players all over the house and garden.  I'd love for it to have three or four tracks that all need to be solved to get to the final prize, that way we can do them in installments (get track 1 up and running, then 2, etc) so friends can start playing sooner rather than later.  I'd also love at least two of the tracks to use only stuff that'll go with the house when sold, like the cabinets, garden rocks, etc, so that the next owners can continue the game. I've started collecting ideas and would love to hear more.  The only limit is to please keep your ideas doable - while it would be fantastic to, say, have a wall slide away to reveal a secret underground cave I'm not so certain we can dig one of those out in our spare time.   Inspiration for all this comes mainly from the Myst games (ah, Riven, how I loved thee!) and this puzzle apartment in New York.

Charity Shops - A Bountiful Haven for Project Parts

I've been a member of Instructables for some time now, and browse the site daily, but I have never really engaged in the Community, So this is my First Community Post!I wanted to share with you a great source of Parts for all you projects, ideas, plans and schemes. Charity Shops! Any decent sized town or city will have at least one, if not several different charity shops which are almost all run by volunteers. These shops get hundreds of items donated to them each week, all of which have to be catalogued, tested, cleaned, priced and sold. Working as a volunteer in one of these shops not only helps a worthy charity, it can also give you experience in fixing/testing electronics and other items. And typically, you can have your pick of any items deemed unsuitable for sale, which would otherwise be binned. These shops are almost always desperate for Volunteers, and will be happy to have new people to help.Charity Shop - Do's and Don'tsDoHelp out because you want to help the charity, this is not just for freebies!Donate any of your old or unwanted items/clothes/books to the shop.Volunteer as many hours as you can.Get to know the other Volunteers, these are your coworkers, treat them with respect.Don'tExpect to take things, ask politely and ensure that is is OK with your supervisor.Take too much, take only what you need, this isn't a free for all.Be annoyed if nothing turns up in the first few weeks, You're helping a worthy charity, freebies are only an added bonus.Personally I work in Save the Children which has a local shop in my town. I typically worked for several hours on a Wednesday afternoon, as an initiative within my School. I also worked Saturday mornings, and ran collections whenever they were required. All of the other volunteers are really friendly, it is a great source for components for my projects, they have an extensive book selection, and I can use my two years experience there as Retail Experience for Job Applications. In my two years of Volunteering, I have been given/salvaged a lot of awesome things, but there are a few highlights:> Full Size Projector Screen - Almost New Condition, amazing for Movies/Games> Mini-Television - Given to me because they could not Sell it, Works perfectly, with all Cables> Numerous broken Electronic Toys - Great source of Components>Board Game Parts - Scrabble Tiles, Dice, Game Pieces - Great for Craft Projects/SparesI hope that you have found this information useful, and I hope that you go out and help a worthy charity near you.Best of Luck, Tj Cosgrove
