DIY

We haven’t featured The Slingshot Channel’s Joerg Sprave and his crazy DIY weaponry in quite some time, but he’s gone and fulfilled his dream of a full auto crossbow. Needless to say, he has our attention. Plus, we missed the laugh. [click to continue…]

Repurposing pallets into functional objects for the home has been trendy for a while now, but we really love what Kone Mei has been doing. Kone is transforming them into wall decorations that incorporate fun/useful items like wireless chargers and lamps. Check out more examples below. [click to continue…]

Okay, so you may not be able to make a custom D&D table like this, or a badass game room like this, but a glorious DM screen like the one pictured here might be little more approachable as a DIY project. It was built by Dave Henning as a gift for a very lucky friend.

It was made almost entirely from foam board and includes dice storage shelves with lighting, a place to hang reference material, a dice tower and additional storage for writing implements and NPC miniatures. Check out some additional angles below. [click to continue…]

You know that Stormtrooper doll that was featured in Rogue One? I wouldn’t be surprised if an official version comes out at some point, but in the meantime you have two options if you want one now. You can make it using the tutorial on Instructables, or you can buy a ready-made version from StormtrooperCrafts on Etsy.

This clay doll is on the easier DIY side, so it might be a fun project—especially if you have kids.

Granted, most of us probably don’t possess the skills or equipment to actually build this guitar, but imgur user DarrynStead did provide a decent overview of the process for anyone that’s interested. The rest of will have to be content with admiring his handiwork in the images below. [click to continue…]

Crochet The Cutest AT-AT

Etsy seller Krawka has some adorable crochet patterns in her store, but this AT-AT might be the cutest of them all. It’s quite large at 10.2-inches, but the results appear to be worth the effort. Check out more pics below. [click to continue…]

gjallarhorn

Redditor jagger393939 is definitely a lucky man, for his talented wife built him a Gjallarhorn from Destiny that fires Nerf darts. It even plays the honking noise. See it in action below. [click to continue…]

We’ve seen several functional Adventure Time BMO builds over the years, but this version by Imgur user NinjaBunny9000 is probably the most elaborate. She’s been taking it pretty much everywhere she goes for the last year or so, but she finally got around to posting pics and info about the build and their travels. See a little of what this BMO can do below. [click to continue…]

falcon-floats

Star Wars fan and model builder @HanakiMasatoshi has built a floating mini-model of the Millennium Falcon in celebration of the release of Rogue One in Japan.

As you’ll see, he didn’t use the Force to make it levitate. He used a magnetic system designed by a Dutch company Crealev, which allows an object (up to 20 pounds on some models) to hover. See more in the videos below. [click to continue…]

I absolutely love it when readers tell us about their DIY projects—especially stuff like this Firefly-themed bedroom from Poppy of Whimsical Frippery. We salute anyone that’s willing to devote a part of their home entirely to a fandom.

Poppy was going for an ‘Inara’s shuttle’ vibe, which she pulled off nicely—though candles and incense smoke don’t make for the best photos. Check out more pics below. [click to continue…]
