This is Redditor BrooklynEWD‘s first attempt at a DIY project. As you can see, he skipped over “festive wreath” and went straight for “spaceship bed”.

You’re looking at the control room he made for his son, which may or may not be dangerous in a shocky/fire hazardy kind of way. Still, it looks ridiculously awesome and he’s working on making improvements to the design.

Take a closer look at the details of the project in the gallery below.

jurassic park power wheels

This definitely isn’t the first time someone has converted a Barbie Power Wheels Jeep into a Jurassic Park jeep, but if you want to see a really awesome build, check out Fromanizzle’s gallery below for all the details.

Last year we posted about Miguel Zavala’s quest to create a 3d pattern library of every monster from the Dungeons & Dragons Monster Manual.

Well, he’s been hard at work since then.

It took a year and a half, but Zavala has finally done it: he created an entire digital library of the Monster Manual, as well as the creatures from Appendix A and the NPCs from Appendix B. That’s 300 figures—and you can download the patterns for free (login required). Thank you Miguel.

carcassonne box

Engineer Andrew Jensen is a huge fan of Carcassonne and, after buying multiple expansions, found himself outgrowing the original cardboard box.

So, he made his own.

Well, he made three actually, but each box was a step toward the perfect Carcassonne container.

He was also kind enough to share pictures of the build which show how he turned a bunch of wooden planks into this beautiful box. Check out the gallery below.

tortoise jurassic park

Now we wait for Louie to go on the inevitable (but slow) tortoise rampage. When will man learn to stop playing God?

Take a tour of the Jurassic Park that Oliver Turpin built for Louie the tortoise below.

This amazing 3D printed dragon door knocker from designer Sonia Verdu not looks the business. And it’s not even metal!

See how it was made in the video below.

Harry Potter fan Meredith McCardle had a brilliant idea for decorating a wall in her home.

Did I mention that she’s an author? Because that fact begins to put this project into perspective.

Using a projector she borrowed from an elementary school, McCardle traced the first page of Harry Potter on her wall then painted each letter with a high quality paint so she wouldn’t have to do a second coat.

Simple. Genius. I love everything about this idea.

death star fire pit

We’ve seen Death Star fire pits before. The idea appears to have originated with the folks behind KGFirePits on Etsy. You can purchase the original design there, but the version pictured here was produced by a high school welding class—and it has an awesome, upgraded look.

I once made a toolbox in high school…and a plaque. Clearly I attended the wrong class, in the wrong school, in the wrong decade.

To further stoke the fires of my jealousy, this project was auctioned off and the winner GAVE it to Redditor alphacodemonkey as a gift.

Nope, didn’t sell it for thousands of dollars—just GAVE IT AWAY. It’s like “Hey, you want a Death Star fire pit? I don’t have room for this in my backyard. I need to make room for a boring patio set.”

Sigh.

Anyway, check out more pictures of this glorious creation spewing flames in the gallery below.

If you liked the N64 coffee table, this project will be right up your alley.

Designed and built by Redditor Edgemeredrive, this GameCube logo shelf measures 35″ x 35″ (roughly 3ft each side) and holds about 180 games. The center cube even comes out, revealing a space to set up your favorite Nintendo console. Or, y’know, some other system.

Check out some more photos of the spectacular build below.

diy_pip-boy_3000_by_will_sweatman_1-620x402

Will Sweatman boasts that his Pip Boy 3000 build is “the most advanced on planet Earth”, and he’s added the features to back it up. The fully-functioning touch screen comes with plenty of things to do, but what really makes this build special is the (mostly) practical tools that have been added.

Inside the body (based on a 3D printed design by YTE3CD) there’s a flashlight, a GPS module, a music player, a temperature sensor, a barometer and even a TV-B-Gone.

Check out the videos below to see how it works.
