Make a Custom Trading Card Game Box :: BUILD
 
07:40
Make a Custom Trading Card Game Box :: BUILD Watch the build of this Magic the Gathering (MTG) Card Game box out of upcycled materials. Make a slide top box out of reclaimed materials. Use the box for Magic the Gathering Cards, Pokemon, Yu Gi Oh, or just plain boring playing cards. The goal of the build was design and build a simple slide top box that was able to hold at least two decks, counters, and dice that would also have a dual purpose lid to help hold the cards. The build was a success except for some small quality issue with the blade nicking the edge of top. Like most of my builds, you are seeing the first attempt as opposed to a finished product ready for retail.

Making a DIY Rustic  Potting Station with Upcycled Materials :: BUILD
 
08:40
Making a DIY Rustic Potting Station with Upcycled Materials :: BUILD This build is loosely based on Steve Ramsey's Woodworking for Mere Mortals video which can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XvHjDyPNKhk&t=43s I made this from a disassembled shelf that I had sitting in my shed. Approximately 90% of the materials were upcycled from the previous shelf or pulled from my scrap bin. I even tried reusing as many of the old nails as I could, but unded up using screw on some parts of the base that needed to be held a little better. You could finish this in a single afternoon with minimal tools if needed. If you make one, be sure to tag @geekbuilders, I would love to see everyone's build. **Be sure to wear protective hearing and eyewear when operating machinery and always wear a dust mask when cutting materials** ---Follow and Subscribe--- http://twitter.com/geekbuilders http://instagram.com/geekbuilders http://facebook.com/geekbuilder http://twitch.tv/geekbuilders ***Check out the Making Geeks Podcast** http://www.makinggeeks.com ---Music--- • License: Creative Commons — Attribution 3.0 Unported— CC BY 3.0 http://creativecommons.org/licenses/b...

Make a Wood Veneer Rose  :: How To
 
06:01
Make a Wood Veener Enchanted Rose inspired by Disney's Beauty and the Beast :: How To Make this enchanted rose out of wood veneer inspired by Disney's Beauty & the Beast The rose is constructed out of Purple Heart and Ash veneer and held together with CA glue. This was my first time working with wood veneer which presented several challenges. I chose to boil the veneer to bend it instead of steam it. It worked well and gave me a longer working time, but it did mute some of the color of the purple heart veneer. A success for the most part, but I do plan on building more.

Cutting 85 Letters on the Bandsaw for a Henry Rollins Quote :: BUILD
 
07:24
Cutting out 85 Letters on the Bandsaw for a Henry Rollins Quote :: BUILD One of my favorite quotes comes from the Henry Rollins song "Shine" I cut out 85 letters on the bandsaw for a sign that I presented to my students on the last day of their school year. The sign took about 5 hours to make. About 4 hours to cut the letters and the rest of the time for the frame and assembly. The letters are 1/2" MDF, the background is from a plywood board I found in the field, and the frame was cut out of some solid oak molding that I had left over from a home renovation project. **Please Subscribe, Follow, and Share" Check out the Making Geeks Podcast http://www.makinggeeks.com --Music-- Punch by Dj Quads https://soundcloud.com/aka-dj-quads Music provided by Audio Library https://youtu.be/icvZElFiZvE Always (Vlog Music) by Dj Quads https://soundcloud.com/aka-dj-quads Music provided by Audio Library https://youtu.be/jIiE1ezj4cs ––– • Contact the artist: [email protected] https://twitter.com/DjQuads https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC08R... https://www.instagram.com/djquads/ http://creativecommons.org/licenses/b...

Make a Retro DIY Pac-Man Desk Set :: How To We add a little geek to the mundane with turning Pac-Man and the Ghosts into a DIY desktop organizer set. Pac-Man and the Ghosts were cut out from 1/2" MDF. The ghosts are a pretty simple construction, but the Pac-Man stapler was really a proof of concept. I wanted to see if I was going to be able to create a functional stapler integrated into Pac-Man since it seemed like a natural pairing. The stapler worked, but does not work consistently, still debating if I want to revisit it in the future. Thanks for wathcing!

Make a DIY Outdoor Family Fun Kerplunk Lawn Game :: How To
 
06:10
Make a DIY Outdoor Family Fun Kerplunk Lawn Game :: How To This game was a commission for a family gathering with a short turn around time. The goal was to make a simple base for the the metal cylinder to sit on that could be built in about a day. I was able to meet that goal, but realized a couple things in the process: -First, the cylinder, if used again needs to be attached to the base, because it has such a high center of gravity, it tipped over fairly easily. - Second, the bamboo garden sticks were a pain to put through the screen to setup the game, it quickly became tiring to reset the game and made people not want to play it more than twice. -Third, the base needs be collapsible in order to make it easier to fit in a standard car trunk.

Make a DIY Baseball Swingline Trainer Batting Aid :: How To
 
06:13
Make a DIY Baseball Swingline Trainer Batting Aid :: How To I remember seeing a zipline batting trainer system when I played little league some 100 years ago, but I haven't seen the same system since I liked the system because it was easy to retrieve the ball and get a batter to do some rapid fire swinging while teaching accuracy of swing. So I tried to recreate it. The ball on the line works fine, but needs to be raised to better match a younger batters form and reach. This is extremely important since one of the last things this should do is endorse bad habits and form. If you have suggestions or just think that the system is outdated, just leave a constructive comment below. Thanks for watching. BTW - I know about the skilz training system with the 2 handles that get pulled apart- I'm not a fan of that system, which is why I tried to recreate the one that I though twas better. --Parts List-- Updated Soon! **Please Subscribe, Follow, and Share" Check out the Making Geeks Podcast http://www.makinggeeks.com --Music-- Vibe With Me by Joakim Karud http://soundcloud.com/joakimkarud Music provided by Audio Library https://youtu.be/-7YDBIGCXsY Creative Commons — Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported— CC BY-SA 3.0 --Follow and Subscribe-- http://www.twitter.com/geekbuilders http://www.instagram.com/geekbuilders http://www.facebook.com/geekbuilder http://www.twitch.tv/geekbuilders --Acknowledgements-- All images and references are the property of their respective
