Guy Develops Clever Way to Unload Huge Concrete Pipes By Himself

Don't try this in front of the OSHA inspector: This anonymous tradesman has developed a that's-so-crazy-it-just-might-work system for getting massive concrete pipes off of a truck by himself. I suspect he's doing it by himself because all of his assistants were killed during the initial attempts. In fact I think he got the tires by stripping their trucks, since they won't be using them anymore.

DIY: Travel Inspired Art with Photoshop Elements

I’m just putting the finishing touches on my new office, and I wanted some original art on the walls. As you know I looooove to travel and I always take a lot of pictures when I’m someplace new! Last year I visited Oahu for a week and also had weekend getaway in Maya Riviera, Mexico. I love exotic botanicals so much so I took several pictures on my trips. To remind myself of these beautiful places, I turned them into original artwork for my office using Photoshop Elements.

How to Paint Like a Pro Without A Professional Background

There is nothing you can do about drawing well if you are not extremely talented in arts or haven’t visited special art-related courses. At least this is what many people believe in.

Watch This Man Build a Multi-Room Cliffside Cave Dwelling…With a Stick

While you may have heard of the Primitive Technology YouTube channel--we posted about his water-powered hammer here--there's actually another YouTube channel called Primitive Technology Idea.

After Saving Polaroid, Florian Kaps Wants to Give Its Competitor Another Shot

Polaroid probably wouldn't exist today were it not for Florian Kaps. (Most people know him by his nickname, Doc Flaps.) When Kaps discovered the company's analog instant film in 2004, he started selling it online and built a community of 40,000 instant photography enthusiasts. In 2008, when Polaroid announced it would stop producing its iconic instant film materials, Kaps bought the factory. And in 2012, he rallied a new generation of instant film enthusiasts with his Kickstarter campaign for a ...

An Inexpensive, DIY Automated Dolly for Smartphone Video Capture

We've seen a fair amount of dolly hacks for smartphones, but this has to be the lowest-cost one yet. COOPH, a/k/a the Cooperative of Photography, uses a toy car, a piece of plexi for the "track" and a simple egg timer to provide the motive force: We imagine you could get fancy with it by using pulleys to adjust the speed.

The Makerphone: From Consumer Electronics to Creator Electronics!

The phone has gotten sufficiently advanced enough for us to know practically nothing about how it functions. In the olden days, if a toaster or radio broke, we opened it up, tinkered with it, fixed it, and put it back together. We still do that with cars today… but the smartphone, the smartphone has too many functions, too advanced technologies, and relies on a multitude of parts to function. Albert Gajšak wants that to change.With the Right To Repair finally kicking off, and consumers finally...

How Does the Shaper Origin Stack Up Against a CNC Gantry Router?

After much hype and a swarm of pre-orders following CNC router Shaper Origin's introduction to the market in 2016, Shaper's sales team brought their shopping cart to a halt, giving time for them to fulfill pre-orders and produce more units. The Shaper Origin has recently been made available for pre-order again (and will apparently begin shipping January 2019), but we were able to get our hands on one of them prior to the re-launch so we could see for ourselves: how does a Shaper Origin compare t...

Talk about self-sufficiency: This handy woman in China, who apparently resides near a bamboo grove, wanted a new furniture set.

Rural Design Solutions: Where to Get Free Wood

Since moving to the farm I've had a 7,000-square-foot, securely fenced outdoor enclosure built for my dogs. It is a grassy, tree-featuring paradise. Yet my white dog has been sneaking into my shop and peeing on the floor instead of outside.The room I've converted into my shop was the living room for the previous tenants; they removed the door from the hinges and I like it that way. Since I'm unwilling to reattach the door, I needed to build some kind of dog-blocking gate.The previous tenant's he...

Man Devises Clever DIY System to Load Sheet Goods Onto Roof Rack by Himself

A couple months ago I foolishly purchased a roof rack for my station wagon, thinking I would use it to carry 4x8 plywood and sheetrock from the home supply center back to the farm. Then I realized how dangerous this would be--at highway speeds (which I would need to travel), the wind could rip them right off if I didn't strap them in correctly or if a connection failed. I don't want to kill the guy behind me because I was trying to save money on delivery fees.That being said, plenty of people do...

Alfie Templeman: Like an Animal

Its chemistry doesn’t just come from the fact that UK teen Alfie Templeman plays every instrument on “Like an Animal” (and all the other tracks on his just released, debut EP of the same name); it’s that the singer’s voice carries such soul. Templeman assembled the EP in his bedroom amidst school and a job in construction. There’s an honesty to its presentation—and the wisdom …

An angular timber cabin is hidden inside an ancient mountain forest
