Build Night - May 15 Steampunk mask (leather cutting and dyeing).
We will be designing and making the pattern for our steampunk mask. The type of mask is like a dust mask. It will fit over the nose and mouth.
We had a great start with room for new people to join.
We need to add tops and bottoms and a hinge.
This month we have two Build Night projects planned.
The Cracker Box Amplifier will add volume to those of you who built the Electric version of the Cigar Box Guitar.
Our second project is a Laser Spy Communicator. This device will also make use of the Cracker Box Amplifiers.
Be sure to check out our Build Events Discussion Forum for more information.
We will be brassing and antiqueing and adding the fiddley bits.
Steampunk goggles. It is finally here and just in time for Riverfest Mini Maker Faire. We will be constructing goggles out of materials you bring. So look around your house and your friends house for potential goggle materials. Bring extra to share.
Here is a list of possibilities:
McDonald milk bottles with lids,
V8 bottles with lids,
any plastic bottles with lids,
It took longer than I thought to build a Cigar Box Guitar this week. So we will finish them up next Tuesday the 19.
