Recycled Branch – Nature’s Toilet Paper Holder

Made from an old branch we found in the backyard.

1. Cut away bark.
2. Sand using various sand papers (40-60, 80-120 then finally 150-180).
2. Use strong glue to attach to your wall.

Wrapped cord

A great way to use fabric leftovers- sew them together, wrap it with thread and then use the cord to make for example a basket (check “coiling” from google).

I made 22 metres in 2 days, working on the cord for 8 or so hours.

We got the idea from this book.

Candle holders from old food cans

2 easy way of doing these:

1) fill the cans with water, freeze the water, hammer holes with different size nails.

2) attach a round stick of wood to a table and let the can lay in it while you´re hammering the holes.

(the ice / the wood stick keeps the cans in shape while your hammering)

Embroidery Hoop – Night Vision Upgrade

We added some LEDs and a battery pack to an embroidery hoop to allow for stitching at night.
Consider this Version 1 since there is no on/off switch – you have to remove the batteries manually ;)
Build time: ~2-3 hours.

Arduino and Breadboard Holder v2

Original idea taken from SparkFun’s holder.
Build time: 3-15 minutes, depending if your Lego pieces are pre-sorted or not ;)
Parts list: 1x 16×16 base plate, 2x Fence 1x4x1, 1x Wall Panel 1x2x1, 4x Square Brick 1×1, 2x Plate 1×6 and (optional) personal engineer.
Warning: This works perfectly with our particular (Conrad) breadboard which has grooves on 2 sides (left and bottom), making it necessary to use smaller pieces. Required Lego pieces for your own breadboard may vary somewhat.
