DIY stiffened felt boxes I love the thick wool felt that's increasingly popular, but man. Wool felt in the 3mm to 5mm range is really expensive ($130/yard or so). The boxes, bowls, and vessels made with it are very cool, though. So when I was poking around my local craft store, I found a poor girl's substitute: Eazy Felt. You know it's cheap when "easy" is spelled with a Z instead of an S on the product label. It's regular craft felt that's been stiffened into sturdy sheets, and cost me $1.78 per 12"x18" sheet. To make felt boxes, I cut a 9" square for the bottom piece, then added four slits and four diagonal cuts to trim away some of the excess felt on the tabs. I used a rotary cutter and ruler to cut out the main shape, then made the slits and diagonal cuts with an X-acto knife. The box top is similar, except the center area is larger to fit over the box bottom, and the sides are half the height. After the pieces are cut, crease the tabs against the edge of a ruler to make assembly easier.

Plumbing Furniture: 12 DIY Fixtures Made of Pipes & Fittings No, the other kind of plumbing fixtures – you know: lights, coat racks and the like.?Faucets, sinks, toilets and showers are usually all we see of our household plumbing – end caps to an incredible network of hidden tubes and joints that supply us with water every day (and then drain it away again). Made to bend, twist and yet stand the test of time, plumbing pipes and fittings are just begging to be made into other kinds of furnishings and fixtures (less utilitarian than those in your bathroom and kitchen walls). Steel, copper or brass, these can be crafted to have various engaging results as long as you are comfortable with a slight touch of Steampunk-style industrial design around the home.? Shelves, stools, lamps and hallways stands are just some of the neat objects that can be made my screwing a few steel joints together.

Star-shaped clothes horse by Aaron Dunkerton Graduate designer Aaron Dunkerton has developed an expandable clothing airer that unfolds into a star shape to create more space for hanging wet garments (+ slideshow). Aaron Dunkerton's Clothes Horse has 36 arms, 10 more than a conventional airer, and when in use it takes the form of a 12-pointed star. "The shape of my clothes horse when erect allows for good air circulation around the clothes, which will help them to dry faster," said the designer. The piece is made from narrow strips of beach plywood, connected by brushed aluminium rods. Small openings create hooks that allow the structure to be locked into position, or collapsed when not it use. "When it's collapsed it is a lot smaller than conventional airers, but when expanded it has more drying arms, as well as having a more interesting form," Dunkerton told Dezeen. Dunkerton designed the Clothes Horse as part of a product and furniture design degree at Kingston University. Here's a project description from the designer: Clothes Horse
