Beauty and the Beast Cabinet

Three3oh just posted this handmade cabinet over on Imgur, made for his niece, because of her favorite movie, Beauty And The Beast. Unfortunately, there’s only a series of pictures, as he was building the cabinet.

However, if you’re looking for some fun and funky furniture, inspired by Disney movies, check out Raxfox on Deviant Art. Raxfox Design is from Leipzig, Germany, a professionel design studio who specializes in twisted wood stuff. Their major products are the dancing cabinets called “Tanzschrank” (in German), but they also make other average and small pieces, like birdhouses, mailboxes, chests, and lanterns.

It’s a Disco Inferno!

Thelongshanks posted this helmet redo on Imgur: Thelongshanks combined two disco balls with a motorcycle helmet. I don’t know what was used to attach the mirror pieces to the helmet, but I agreed with the commenter that said this is going to cause an accident on a sunny day! :) I wouldn’t want to be behind that helmet on a sunny day.

Logan For Your Halloween Haunt

CF9o0TC

Jim Jokisch had a project that became an Imgur sensation pretty much immediately: a Wolverine Adamantium skeleton prop replica.

I think this is fantastic! And I would imagine this would be fairly easy to replicate: start with a quality skeleton, prime and paint it with some good metallic paint, add a dogtag and figure out some blades. The priming and painting would take the longest. I’m not sure how I would do the blades. Maybe six matching knife blade with the handles removed, but that would make them dangerous. Maybe find someone who can cut some metal.

Either way, this is an awesome decoration!

It’s Never Too Early For Christmas Crafts

This might be the simplest Christmas ornament ever and I love it! SparkOut had this posting on Imgur. An even though this is representative of the Red Shirts of Star Trek: The Original Series, it lends itself to some creativity. With a change of sequin colors for the round ornaments, you could make almost any uniform from any Star Trek series: blue for the Sciences and Medical from TOS, command yellow from TOS, burgundy and black for command on TNG, or even teal for Counselor Troi, to just name a few ideas.
