untitled Living Cube The Living Cube by German designer Till Koenneker is a clever structure, combining all those elements we usually struggle to find space for in a tiny apartment. It houses a walk-in closet, ample media storage, and serves as a loft bed. Here is how designer describes it: “I moved into a apartment studio without storage room. So I made a minimalistic cube design with a shelf for my vinyl collection, my TV, clothes and shoes. On the cube is a guest bed and inside the cube is a lot of storage space.” Photography by Rob Lewis

The Kurtz Corner: DIY Rustic Wine Rack How awesome is that wine rack? My Hubby built it for me! I think my craftiness has rubbed off on him. He's definitely more crafty / handy with the tools than when I first started dating him. I guess he's learned a thing or two from me over these past few years, *brushes off shoulder* hehe! Materials- 1 wood pallet - 1 - 1x4x8 white wood- 48 - 2 in wood screws (24 per rack)- 80 grade sandpaper- wood stains - light and dark (your preference)- hand held jig saw- reciprocating saw- miter saw- paint brush- hammer- 1/8 drill bit- power drill- clamps - wood glue This is a new type of project for The Kurt Corner, so I will do my best to be as detailed as possible, since we kind of forgot to take pictures along the way. (Note: all areas needing screws are pre-drilled with a 1/8 in bit and all cut areas should be stained with lighter stain) For this project, you will need a pallet without blocks, this IS what you want...NOT this kind. You will need two stains for this next step.

Atomic Shrimp - How to build your own Arcade System 10. Game Emulators Emulators are what you need to drive your arcade games which are called ROMs. Your PC is way more powerful than the original hardware that ran all those classic games and there is a whole community dedicated towards writing emulators to play them. There are many emulators out there and what follows are my favorites: MAME (Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator) is probably the best known emulator in the world and plays the majority of your classic arcade games. SNES has numerous emulators and I found Nestopia to be the easiest to get up and running. The Sega Genesis has a great emulator called Fusion. The Atari 2600 can be played using the Stella emulator. Daphne is an emulator that plays those classic arcade laser disc games. The ROMs (games) are very easy to find by searching Google, but remember most of them are copyright so you'll need to check if your legally allowed to run them. ;) The hardest thing to find were the laserdisc’s for Daphne.

Swing-Out Tool Bar Swing-Out Tool Bar Space is almost always at a premium in a woodworking shop. Especially when it comes to wall space. The tool bar consists of three parts: a pivot arm with a number of holes drilled in it to hold the tools, a pair of support blocks that “sandwich” the arm between them, and a mounting plate that attaches to the wall. Before assembling the tool bar, I cut an arc on the outside end of each support block and on both ends of the pivot arm. Tightening a lock nut on the end of the bolt so it’s just snug holds the arm in place, yet still allows it to pivot. Have a nice weekend, Bryan Nelson Online Editor, ShopNotes
