This is not my model. I came across this AT-ST Scout Walker by Billy McCoy on Thingiverse. As you can see, it's pretty cool, but Billy's building instructions did not work so well - he'd improved the design, updated the files, but left the build instructions as they were. That made things a little confusing, so I decided to write some myself.
So, I made the simple Cardboard Penny Maze. But, it wasn't quite enough.
Way back in 2006, I published this air-horn project. It was a nice, simple project that I recreated many times for myself, or with students, until film cannisters became a rarity.
This project started when I saw an article on the BBC about the local police force;
After all the fuss of the 3D printed gun, I thought; Why not laser cut one? I spent an evening and a morning doodling, prototyping, and generally redefining the meaning of the word "gun" until I came up with this.
Way back in 2007, I made a little paper chap I called Heed the Box. He proved to be a popular little chap, able to store his torso and all his limbs inside his head, but after a comment on my much more recent ring box, I decided to re-visit little Heed in a more durable form.
After making the Serenity Suncatcher, I realised I needed to make the other classic ship from Firefly; the Mule.
Lasers can "draw" nice, clear lines in many materials. In pale-coloured or clear acrylic, though, the cuts only really stand out in bright sunshine.
Have access to a laser cutter? Want to be really annoying? Then you need to make a turbine whistle!
I've been laser-cutting in earnest for around a year now, but most of my Makes have been either two-dimensional, or built up from 2d layers.
Sometimes, you just need to make a chess set. This is mine.
Here, in the 21st century, we rely on lasers. They are surgical implements, makers' tools, and they transfer unimaginable amounts of data around the planet every moment of the day.
My youngest son wants to be able to take video of projects being cut on our laser cutter, using our shiny little GoPro camera.
Most Scouts and Guides will be familiar with the image of the plaited leather woggle*, but few will have made one.
Browsing Twitter, I came across a comment about a laser cut, wooden bow tie. It was quite nice. Not exactly as I would have made it, but worth thinking about. Within a couple of minutes, I got the same tweet sent to my by Canida. No comment, just... @KitemanX
I'm a good husband; I always remember our anniversary, and I always remember Valentine's Day. This year, the muse moved me to create a pink acrylic Valentine heart, apparently suspended within a block of clear acrylic.
Playing with jewellery ideas, I decided I wanted to be able to secrete away something special. Heavily inspired by masynmachien's layered acrylic rings in form, I came up with a modern take on the Victorian obsession with locks of hair, and a ring for carrying a hidden micro-SD memory card.
Every role-player needs dice. Dice need rolling.

My youngest, being nearly 16, decided that his decidedly warped digger-themed lampshade was due for retirement, and asked me to make something to replace it.
I wanted to make a model Death Star (because, well, who doesn't?), but I didn't want to spend weeks recreating the original - I like minimalism; I wasn't after a detailed reconstruction, I wanted to make something that captured the essence of the Death Star.
After making lampshades for my sons, my wife decided that we "need" a new lampshade in the bedroom, as a start to the redecoration that she says we "need" to do.
I present for entertainment and enjoyment; a man in a skirt, throwing big sticks. I have no idea why I made this. Kitewife stood and watched me during the test-runs, and asked me; Why?
Having made a dice tower, I decided to make a matching tray to stop dice skittering all over the table.
I was browsing the web, randomly clicking, when I suddenly came across the idea of non-spherical globes - globes of the Earth that are not actually globes - dodecahedrons, octahedrons and cubes.
Fidget cubes and fiddle cubes are all over the internet,so I really needed to make one. All it took was a bit of imagination.
I think I made a rod for my my own back. After making a wooden lampshade* for one son, the other decided that his shade was a bit past it as well. But he wanted something "a bit less bare".

We don't like to think about it, but the sad truth is that death comes for us all. It's a part of life and this is why we need to prepare for it, or else our loved ones could end up struggling. This includes struggling to deal with death and struggling with financial problems that come along with death.
I decided to make a really simple but cute vanity. It only cost be about $22 to make, but I did already have some things at home.
Forum Thread: How to Make Professional Recording Microphone from Broken Headphone at Home-DIY Life Hack (Tutorial)
Nowadays, everone who's in touch with the modern world uses a minimum of 2-4 different gadgets and as always there's a bunch of broken gadgets in our homes that we normally throw it away without using or repair it or even try to make something with it.
I hope you guys enjoy this video :)
