VU Meter - LED Noise-O-Meter for Classrooms
I built this a short while ago as an idea to use in a primary classroom setting. Poster displays are often used by primary teachers wanting to control the noise levels in their classrooms but I wanted to add technology to make it dynamic and responsive. The motivation for this came after seeing the Adafruit Digital NeoPixel LED Strip online and realising its potential as part of a VU meter. Everything else developed from this.Things I used: MDF (...

Sycamore Branch Floor Lamp
I came across this fallen branch from a sycamore tree, and without any idea of what I wanted to do with it, I carried it back to my car and drove it home. Not long after, my lady friend mentioned that she needed a floor lamp for her apartment, and I knew this branch could be perfect.What I thought was going to be an simple project, turned out to be a little tricky, but once I solved a few problems, it was not terribly difficult to put together. I...

Quick and Easy Book Safe/Geocache Container
There are a number of existing Instructables related to creating Book Safes. Most of these require the use of a sharp knife and the tedious process of cutting each page individually. I wanted to make a series of books to use as a set of geocaching hides and this approach seemed too slow so I came up with my own solution of how to make a neat cut-out through the pages.

Eerie Glowing Jars!
So as you may know I am a photographer of a 365 days projects - a mind blowing idea-bin, where you get either inspired one day, or wander around burnt out the other day. When it's inspiring, it's a really good day, when it's not... well, let's not talk about that.Now you wonder how all this is connected to the above photo, am I right?Well, this picture is one of the photos of the 'more inspired' days of 365 projects, and since I made it, people c...

Simple Sheet Metal Brake: No Welding
I love working with metal, but I've always struggled to get perfect 90° bends. Generally, I'll stick the piece to be bent in the vise and smack it around until it's bent. Since it almost always bends crooked, I end up rebending - and generally just making a mess of it.For my next project I was going to need to bend some cardboard, which inspired me to first tackle a bending brake. Since I knew I would end up bending things much harder than cardbo...
