TaW: Calling Time

The thing a week challenge was a noble one and though I’ve not blogged about a thing a week I’ve certainly not stopped making things, doubly so in my new job in which I build cool things for a living though more on that when I’m allowed to talk about it… Of the random things […]

TaW: 20 – When Cosplayers Attack…

The tripod strap I made in the previous post was when I was en route to London Film and Comicon to film the first video for our new webseries, The Series of Wonderful Nonsense.  I think it came out well, two days online and we’re over a thousand views already!  The facebook page is online […]

TaW: 19 – Tripod Shoulder Strap

So the bag straps I added a while back to hold my tripod didn’t work, this morning I threw together a simple shoulder strap to make it easier to carry.

TaW: 18 – Engine Trolley

A quick thing this week, a trolley to hold a currently stationary engine in my garage.  With an old pallet I got from my old job and some cheap, yet 200KG capable, caster wheels from eBay it’s a cheap solution to making space in the garage more manageable. Also, this is the first post to […]

TaW: 17 – Camera Stabiliser

A quick and simple hack this week, a handheld camera stabiliser and multi purpose mount.  Made from an old rack mount from a server and bent in a few places, the camera can be mounted and used handheld or mounted to a ceiling using a tripod bolt at the top.  The front of the handle […]

TaW: Week 14 – Messenger Bag Tripod Straps

This “weeks” instalment is a simple, temporary, hack of a bag I’ve just bought to hold a tripod as well as my other camera gear. After a long, long search for the perfect bag, and even thinking of making one, I decided to buy a bag that was anonymous enough but easy to hack.  I […]

TaW: Week 13 – Towel Holster

It seems the definition of week is defined by time between posts rather than a set period of time but this one I couldn’t miss; A simple towel holster, made with parachute cord and a carabiner, for the frood on the go. Happy Towel Day everyone!

TaW: Week 12 – ARC Reactor

This weeks thing was built for a friend for the Iron Man inspired dress she has made for Iron Fest.  The ARC reactor is made using 11 superbright 3mm LEDs connected to a pair of AAs.  It is then sewn onto a scrap of denim from an old pair of jeans for a bit of structure […]

TaW: Week 11 – Liam Andrew Pye’s Pint Glass

A very good friend of mine is Mr Andrew Pye, his good lady just gave birth to their first child and to commemorate this auspicious occasion I’ve engraved his first pint glass.  Welcome to Earth young Liam. 🙂

TaW: Week 10 – Moleskine Wallet

My wallet has taken a beating, is showing its age and my tablet is still away for repair so I’ve taken to carrying a notebook with me.  About time I hacked my Moleskine really… It already had a pocket in the back so all I needed to add was slots for my cards.  To that end […]
