Pine needle toboggan


It's summertime and the weekend is almost here. Time to go tobogganing!

Not practical, you say? Well, just check out this article posted on the always-amusing Modern Mechanix blog (from a 1931 issue of Modern Mechanics magazine): "Toboggans on Pine Needles". It gives details on how you can make a fun toboggan run that slides on pine needles so that you can engage in your favorite wintertime activities in the summer.

Intertia Labs celebrates July 4 with giant flamethrower


Now this is how you celebrate Independence Day. This is a "hydro-pneumatic flamethrower" from the folks at Intertia Labs. They're perhaps best known for their fighting robots, as seen on BattleBots.

(The video has some potentially offensive expressions of astonishment from the spectators, so turn the sound down first if you're at work.)

Their YouTube channel has more information, including videos with build details.

A useful medicine cabinet organizer


Big Blue Saw isn't just useful for complex projects or elaborate crafts, it's great for simple things, too. Take this medicine cabinet organizer, for example.

Here's a photo of the medicine cabinet before the new organizer was in place.


As you can see, it's a bit messy. The big problem is that the small stuff is eating up valuable space on the bottom shelf. And there's a large amount of unused vertical space as well. This is nothing that the correct application of laser energy (and some acrylic stock) can't fix.

Here's the design for the shelf in the Big Blue Saw Designer.


After it's put in place, here's the result: an organized medicine cabinet, with everything easily accessible.
