No mancave is complete without secret switch hidden in a bust. It’s a fact—just ask 1960’s Bruce Wayne. The good news is that you can build one of your own thanks to detailed instructions on The New Hobbyist. With a push of a Shakespeare (or, in this case Beethoven) neck button, you can turn on all of the lights in a room wirelessly.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Momentary push button
- Multi-function 1CH RF Remote Control Tx/Rx Set
- Various hinges/bits of metal
- An impressive bust (I went with Beethoven)
- 6 outlet plug strip
- 12v power supply
- Various lengths of wire
- Small piece for wood for switch mount
- Wood stain
Needless to say, lights are only the beginning. With some modifications, something like this could be used to open up doors and secret bookshelf passages.
