AT-AT rocking horse

Array

Gear  |  DIY
Jen made this amazing AT-AT rocking-horse, documenting the build online. It will be auctioned for charity at Megacon by the Florida chapter of the 501st Legion.
"As I said, little Isaiah (son of my Wrecky minion Julianne - and resident of the Ninja Nursery, if you remember that!) was afraid of rocking on the AT-AT, even though he loved it and kept standing next to it and patting it. So to help him feel brave, I got him a Vader mask and cape. And, hey, never underestimate the power... of a Vader mask and cape:
Isaiah is rocked all the way forward here, so as you can see the bumpers really prevent it from going very far. (He didn't want to rock backward at all. Heheh.)
If you missed it, you can see some construction shots of the AT-AT here. Oh, and I still don't have a pattern for you guys, but I promise it's on the to-do list!"

Mission Control Desk

Gear  |  DIY
Mission Control Desk created by Jeff High Smith.
"My older son recently started school and needed his own desk for doing homework. I wanted to make something nicer than a simple tabletop with legs, and realized that I could also build in a bit of fun for when the homework is finished. Both my boys and I still had space travel on our minds from our summer trip to Kennedy Space Center. For this desk project, I decided to go with a NASA theme.
I researched the Apollo Program as well as NASA’s Mission Control Center, and designed my own console roughly based on those. I say “roughly” because the actual Mission Control does more monitoring than controlling, and isn’t awash in the whiz-bang rocket noises young kids appreciate. I took great liberties and made more of a “space-themed” play console than an accurate simulator. My goal was simply to provide some extra ideas and sound effects for my two sons to play “space” together

How to make cannabutter (marijuana-infused butter)

Array

Gear  |  DIY
"Here are seven easy steps for a great cannabutter – from the boiling of the butter/marijuana mixture to the straining and the cooling. The truth about cannabutter: The butter is just as good as the weed you make it with. Some people like to make a mild butter and use it to spread on their toast in the morning or add a teaspoon or two to a baked potato. But seriously, the stronger the weed the stronger the butter, so plan accordingly."
