DIY Steampunk Gauges If you're building steampunk props for cosplay, gauges are a must-have. Unfortunately, vintage gauges (which look the most authentic) can be both hard to find and pretty darn expensive once you do track them down. So, John and I decided to make our own. Here's the secret: These cup slider handles for closet doors are perfect for DIY gauges. Plus, a pack of two handles only costs two or three dollars - sweet! Once we found those, I went hunting online for photos of vintage pressure gauges. Next I needed a temperature gauge, which was much harder to track down. ...but the photo had too much glare and shadow to use. For the most realistic look, you could use clock hands or spinner arrows like these for the gauge needles. To give the faces some age and character, John rubbed brown glaze on the paper after printing them out. Next it was a simple matter of cutting them out: John: Don't show my thumb! Me: [rolling eyes] And popping them inside the frames.

7 Free Wooden Gear Clock Plans for You Eccentric, Masochist Woodworkers | Ever since I had the pleasure of seeing Keith Chamber’s wooden gear clocks in person, I’ve been on the look out for more all wood clocks. See Wooden Gear Clocks by Keith Chambers >> I think wooden clocks are one of those dividing lines in woodworking… To have the aspiration to make a clock, entirely from wood, puts you in your own unique category. One well-known seller of wooden clock plans, Clayton Boyer, pitches his most-difficult plans like this: “Selling plans for the clocks on this page goes against my basic philosophy of trying to spread joy in the world through creative woodworking. However, I have come to the conclusion that I should not stand in the way of a woodworker’s desire for additional frustration in his/her life when they obviously want it so badly.” He won’t sell plans from his “Masochist’s Corner” unless you’ve built one of his simpler clocks first… and sent him photographic PROOF that you completed it. Here’s his Simplicity, his, er, simplest offering:

Steampunk Leather Top Hat Tutorial I have received several requests for a tutorial on making my steampunk leather top hat, shown above, and so, here it is. The first drawing shows the three pattern pieces (not to scale). The wave on the bottom of the crown is what gives the brim its distinctive curve. The pattern below is the one that I used to make my top hat. For a size large, the width of the crown (from side to side) should measure 23.8". The crown joins at the back with a butt seam. You should use a lightweight but firm vegetable tanned leather. See the diagram at the lower right for construction details. This is the partially made hat.

The Galactic Blasters Gun Shop (by @baekdal) #design Written by Thomas Baekdal | Thursday, March 24, 2011 Ever since reading "The Hitchhicker's Guide to the Galaxy" I have always wanted to own my very own Kill-o-Zap. For those who do not know what that is, here is how it is generally described. The designer of the gun had clearly not been instructed to beat about the bush. I haven't actually found one yet, but earlier today I did come across Dr. What about this "Unnatural Selector - ray blunderbuss." What about a 17 inch F.M.O.M. ...or what about the "Righteous Bison Indivisible Particle Smasher?". Follow: 42Concepts How to Make Steampunk Jewelry Wikipedia defines Steampunk as “a subgenre of fantasy and speculative fiction that came into prominence in the 1980s and early 1990s. The term denotes works set in an era or world where steam power is still widely used-usually the 19th century, and often set in Victorian era England-but with prominent elements of either science fiction or fantasy, such as fictional technological inventions like those found in the works of H. G. Steampunk is often associated with cyberpunk and shares a similar fanbase and theme of rebellion, but developed as a separate movement (though both have considerable influence on each other). Various modern utilitarian objects have been modded by individual craft persons into a pseudo-Victorian mechanical “steampunk” style, and a number of visual and musical artists have been described as steampunk.”
