DIY Sonic Screwdriver
Last Halloween my oldest son Colin dressed up as the Doctor from Doctor Who and I # together a Screwdriver for him from bits of junk I scrounged up in the garage. Upon seeing the Sonic Screwdriver my youngest son Sam decided he had to have one. Sam however declared that his screwdriver needed to work- he wanted more than just a cool looking prop.
He wanted a functional Sonic Screwdriver.
The neat thing about this project is you can easily tailor it to include all different kids of sensors to learn about the world around you. Inexpensive accelerometers, altitude sensors, barometric pressure sensors, GPS sensors, etc. are all readily available and you can make a custom Sonic Screwdriver to house whatever sensors you want.
The first step to painting your steampunk gun is to choose a base color. For this step especially, I suggest that you find a clean, flat workspace to use. (I did most of this project in my bed while watching Netflix. There is definitely some paint on my sheets.) There are base acrylic paints available, or you can use a simple plain black or white. Due to the chance of spots showing through the layers of paint, I chose to use black as my base color.Once you choose your color, use a medium paintbrush (I used one with bristles about an inch across) to paint the entire exterior of the gun that color. Using a medium sized brush allows you to get the job done quickly, but also gives you more control over where the paint goes. Additionally, you will want to paint any interior areas of the gun that might show through when the gun is completely put back together. You can either paint these areas black, or paint them to match the color that area is on the guns exterior. I chose to paint the edges of the interior to match the exterior, just in case they show through at all.
Oh, how I love rhinestones. Flash, brilliance, movement. Layers of handwoven wire, a purple blue eye and a fringe of rhinestones, makes a one of a kind pin brooch. Add the accompanying 20 inch chain and it becomes a statement piece. How much fun can one piece be….

Estonian sculptor Mati Karmin has innovated a way for old Soviet naval mines to become usable furniture. From tables, to beds and even baby carriages, the rusted mines are recycled into steampunked home furnishings.
Unlike the traditional sculptor, Mati Karmin has previously created other war pieces; however, his recent works are so original and creative that it paves the way for newer and greater home furnishings. Being the product of once-explosive mines, the furniture now carries an emotional and historical element that will live on for decades.
