Intro: Fake TNT Dynamite Plunger Prop

I needed a fake bomb prop to be scary.. like they used in the old fashioned cartoons when they push the lever down and it explodes off in the distance...so I started making one with a cardboard box, pipe, foam, and duct tape. Like you see in my quick drawing, inside the box, I cut a hole for the pipe and duct taped it into place, then slipped the smaller pipe into it with the handle also duct taped on in a criss cross format. Then tape up the box, and paint the whole thing however you'd like. I added some craft foam on the sides, cut into a hinge type shape and hot glued them on. I also added some "bolts" which are also craft foam glued on. Then i just painted them to add highlights and texture....it was VERY simple to do. I was going to show a step by step, but ended up finishing it before I even started taking pics bc I was too excited to get started...but it's simple enough, I think you can follow along with the drawing. :)
