I saw this on the MAKE blog: Helmut Smit is an artist/designer. This brilliant Ikea Hack "harks back to one of humanity's basic needs: making fire." As Ikea does not sell matches or lighters, Smits has taken cues from the wartime necessity of burning furniture to keep warm, and created a fire from an Ikea rope, hanger, wine rack, egg cup, napkins, and floral embellishments. Since embedding doesn't seem to work consistently here's a direct link to the video below: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rzXOVbYUamc

Yes, it is the only shotgun rubber band gun that I know of. It is based off of the Remington M870 and can be easily modified to be both be in an entry shotgun configuration, with tactical buttstock, or in a "Breeching weapon" configuration, with no buttstock. In the first picture, it is in the entry configuration. In the second picture, it is in the breeching configuration, but with the buttstock shown to show how it could be carried in a briefcase or something similar. There is no difference whatsoever between the two, other than the obvious difference in the buttstock, but less obvious, the breeching configuration has more mobility in the cocking hammer, so it works better. I am sorry for the lack of pictures of the internals, I will hopefully be posting them in the future.

I have been searching around looking for a tutorial on how to create an extreme wig hairstyle similar to Ophelia Overdose's wig stylings. Example I have seen a lot of tutorials about adding hair to existing synthetic wigs, but I haven't seen much on creating large gravity defying hair that includes curls.

Hey guys, I need some advice, I want to build a murphy style bed, in short i want the bed to look like so: http://www.resourcefurniture.com/space-savers/queen-space-saving-beds/ito I have build and tested the shelf.leg system, it works pretty well and is weighted out nicely. the concept is going to use pistons to lower the bed for a smoother feel but what my concern is what would be the best way to build the pivot mechanism at low cost but high durability. the bed will have a sofa at the front also but not like the one in the link, my version will be more of a box with cushion and fabrik that i can store items away into. Please use the link below to view a version of my concept for the pivot mechanism: http://img21.imageshack.us/img21/692/pivotsystem.jpg ( i know there are a few misspelt words but it was just a quick mock up for you guys) Any help is welcome - just dont advise me to buy the murphy bed mechanism as its to expensive and i believe i can build the entire bed for the same price :)

Hello to anyone who follows me. Yes I am still alive. Now the reason I am posting this is because I feel like I need to give back to the community I have been using/involved with for years now. Not the craft community but the Knex community here. Many of them have moved on from Knex since starting college and so have I. Mostly do to the lack of space and already messy room. So in order to give back I have come up with a better more interesting method. Instead of using Oblivitus's method of making the Knex guns in a CAD program I will instead be giving you the plans and basic instructions to make weapons/props inspired by Nonleathalbychoice. This being said unlike the Knex guns these items are going to be less accessible, more difficult, and dangerous. To do these things it will help to have a computer with Solidworks 2014 on it. Later I will post PDFs of the cutting plans in order to reach a wider audience. That being said some of the projects were and will be inspired by scrap metal I found and will be costly and wasteful to replicate. However I believe that the raw materials for 4 of the projects came in at under $100 total. So still cheaper than many of the larger Knex guns. Also I probably wont be posting these things as step by step instructions since most of these items are made by just cutting out sheet/bar metal. Any advanced instructions will be noted. The time frame for these instructions is going to be very slow due to college. Expect maybe 1 a month if even that. I will try to inform you of changes and fixes as soon as they become apparent to me. Also I am first writing this after only an hour of sleep. So if any of you spot grammatical errors please point them out to me.

Here’s a link, go take a look double fast comrades. http://www.scottevest.com/v3_store/Carry-on-Coat.shtm the zine "Ready made" decided to send me a copy of their Feb/March issue with an interesting article Pages 45-55 bare a article purposed to make you a better, faster, more efficient traveler. Page 53 and 52 describe the wondrous story behind a supposed "Wonder jacket" designed to replace air travel carry-on, which as we might remember, are growing increasingly heavier in fees and tags. The fruits of Scott Jordan's (an avid traveler and designer of the "Carry-on Jacket") laboring attempts to combat these fees glow proudly as his "Carry-on Jacket" comes to life. Much like a backpack, this jacket, and the many like it (like the one linked above and others on that website) have dozens of dozens of convenient pockets for all sorts of possible storage arrangements, ranging from spare change to I-pads. But how do they look? This all sounds like a great traverse breakthrough, but its totally useless if you look like a bloody tourist (which can be dangerous). Does anyone have anything like this, are there other brands. Does anyone have one in particular that they like? I need someone other than my magazine to vouch for it, or something like it, especially with a price tag like that. what about durability and comfort?

Asked by JaimyvS 7 years ago | last reply 7 years ago
Ok, although we might not want to admit it but everyone of us sooner or later has some bodily functions that we take care of in private. For most of us the main difference between toilets, apart from the looks, would be wether it has a flat bowl or just water where everything drops in. The first type is mostly common in Europe while the "let it splash" type is used everywhere else - except of the Asian region. Check the attached pics for reference please. Which brings me to point of how to use a toilet... For a nice number two the western world prefers to sit down, some might even grab the newspaper but that's another story LOL In Asia however this concept is totally unknown and considered to be filthy and dirty. Here the prefered method to get rid of a number two is to squat - basically just a hole in the ground or a channel filled with water. For all those still struggling with the concept have a look here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d7KBbjtan9Q I don't want to go into all details but if are living in a area with a great percentage of Asians you will often find public toilets and those in restrooms of your favourite restaurant in an usunsable condition. After all it is not easy to stand on a toilet seat (seems to be hard to fold it up) and let the number two find the right spot on the way down. So apart from cultural differences I do wonder about this: If western toilets are considered to be filthy and dirty compared to squat toilets, how do you consider them with footprints and the rest colored in a stinky brown? Could someone make me a nice, non-offensive comic like picture that explains the use of western toilets and that standing on the seat is definately not the right way? Would like to use it at my workplace (boss is fine with it as long as it is not offensive in any way).

I couldn't figure out if this should be in Outdoors, Burning Questions or Green. Since I'm looking for an ible on this, Burning Questions it is! I was wondering if any of the members from Ireland or the UK could share any knowledge of hedgerows. I've of course heard of them but never really thought much about it until I read an article from an American that moved to Ireland. His description was interesting to me and I started to look up how to make my own but the descriptions I found were simplistic and didn't do what I was reading about in the article. Maybe I didn't look in the right place? In any event, an Instructable on this would be great or if anyone could just share what they know on the subject I'd like to try my hand at making my own since I have an aging privacy fence that will probably only last me a few more years (if that) and I'd like to start replacing it with a hedgerow.

My problem; as a father of two young girls, for years I have joked about getting NASA's countdown clock and placing it on our yard when they begin to date. And start cleaning my largest guns when the clock hits @ 15 minutes or so. Originally I thought this would be cost prohibitive- I mean, the thing is huge, and they used tax dollars to pay for it, so how cheap could it be? Reading online about it today, I see it's been in use since the Apollo days, and it uses 40 watt bulbs, so I'm thinking (pardon the pun here), it can't be rocket science. I don't need this to be in scale, but Id like something view able from the street, rather than a kitchen timer kind of thing. And while I'm handy with a skill saw, I'm more of a car guy than a computer geek, so I don't even know where to start. Ideally, I guess Id like the numbers somewhere around 12" or so, maybe larger. Any thoughts, or experience? The oldest starts dating in less than a week...

Check out this NYTimes slideshow of an absolutely awesome house on Long Island!None of the surfaces are level, everything is brightly colored, and you'd have to hang curtains to get any privacy. The architects included poles to help people stay upright when climbing around. I totally want one of these... From the article:The house is off-limits to children, and adults are asked to sign a waiver when they enter. The main concern is the concrete floor, which rises and falls like the surface of a vast, bumpy chocolate chip cookie.But, for Arakawa, 71, an artist who designed the house with his wife, Madeline Gins, the floor is a delight, as well as a proving ground.As he scampered across it with youthful enthusiasm on a Friday evening in March, he compared himself to the first man to walk on the moon. "If Neil Armstrong were here, he would say, "This is even better!Then Ms. Gins, 66, began holding forth about the health benefits of the house, officially called Bioscleave House (Lifespan Extending Villa). Its architecture makes people use their bodies in unexpected ways to maintain equilibrium, and that, she said, will stimulate their immune systems."They ought to build hospitals like this," she said.A reporter, who thinks they should never, ever build hospitals like this, tried to go with the flow.

I've looked online trying to find out but can't find a reference to the style anywhere. There are a couple overpriced examples on ebay but even their sellers don't know the style. It's kind of a combination of a snifter and a shot glass and is quite adept at making mixed drinks. I managed to find one at a thrift store after seeing a friend's but haven't found a reasonably-priced one elsewhere. The examples I've seen on ebay have Coors logos on them so I imagine it's supposed to be some sort of beer glass, if that helps.
