Michael42er's Channel. Rubberband Pinball Machines. Making our own pinball machines was an incredibly satisfying activity.

Rubberband Pinball Machines

I think half the fun was just the chance for Zee and Boo to pound in their own nails, something they don't get to do a whole lot of. The other half of the fun was in the design process. This is a very open-ended toy -- they could pull out their rubber bands and make a whole new game whenever they want. Want to make your own?

The one I made with my son is twelve feet across, drawn in sidewalk chalk on a level part of our driveway, and you check the time by standing in the spot corresponding to the date and seeing where the middle of your ow shadow falls. Building Rolling Ball Sculpture - M Gaulden. Build a Programmable Mechanical Music Box. Since this project was starting entirely from scratch, I needed to make a flawless design that could be easily worked with, and a good design always reduces waste.

Build a Programmable Mechanical Music Box

I decided to use oak, and at $60 per 10ft plank I didn't want to waste any. Also, its pretty complex and precision is extremely important for everything to work correctly. I started with the idea: a large wood cylinder will hold metal pegs. It will rotate and force the pegs to pluck metal tines, which are tuned to specific notes. I selected 12 notes across, since it seemed like a very flexible number of notes and allowed me to fill it with a simple 8-note scale in the middle, with a few extra high and low notes. Narnia and the North! Yesterday I asked the girls what they wanted to do afterlunch and Jenna said, "crafts" (of course).

How To Make A Stick Horse

People wrote to ask how I made my stick horses, and I always referred them to that original tutorial. As I made more horses, and eventually unicorns, I drew up a pattern because I wanted uniform-sized horse heads, and the freedom to sew everything on, including the eyes, before gluing the heads to the sticks. Making The Faraway Tree. Welcome to The Making Of The Faraway Tree!

Making The Faraway Tree

First, let me say that this is not a tutorial. It's more like a behind-the-scenes to its construction. Unlike sewing, which is better illustrated with detailed step-by-step instructions, building with cardboard isn't. Often a person can tell just by looking, how a cardboard thing is put together. Second, while I'd been letting the idea of a Faraway Tree model percolate in my brain for a long time, I didn't hit on the final layout until a month or two ago. Trees.

Craftmastery's Channel. How to Make an Ornate Beaded Bead. This beaded bead follows similar technique as the crystal ball. Most people use 3 or 4 mm Czech fire polished beads or swarovski crystal beads + seed beads to make this ball. Since I don't have any fire polished or crystal beads at hand, I used hexagon seed beads that are about 3 x 4 mm and size 11 seed beads. I ended up flattening one side of the ball and beaded a ring band to the sides to make it a ring.

I like this puzzle for its simplicity of construction, yet difficulty in assembly. Once assembled it holds together well enough that it can be tossed in the air and caught without coming apart.

The neat thing about this burr is that it's made out of 12 identical pieces. The geometry of the pieces is very simple. Think of the piece at left as comprised of five cubes with the three middle cubes half cut away. I used 20 mm for the basic unit, so the pieces are 20x20x100 mm in size.
