Projects for the Week

“Table with a cooler”

What better way to bring picnics and alcohol together, then to modify a table so that it can hold ice and bottles. This DIY project comes from ManMade DIY projects which the contributors were able to find from a winery. I’m not sure the exact directions are available, but this looks like a pretty easy one to tackle. Aside from removing the wood from the center of the picnic table (provided you use an existing table), where the cooler is placed, the hardest part of the project appears to be modifying the metal insert. You may also consider using some plexi-glass and epoxy to give it a different look.

“Radio (batteries not required)”

Here is a great little project for radio enthusiasts, electronic tinkerers, or anyone looking to scan AM stations battery-free. This simplistic DIY project requires little more than a bottle, some small pieces of wood and, magnet wire, a germanium, and some headphones (not a complete list). And for those of you who ask yourself “how does Radio Shack stay in business”, well you may just find out why. As always, being a MAKE project they will walk through this one with no confusion. Enjoy.

“DIY Desk Fan + Heater”

Looking for a way to heat or cool your personal workspace? Want to show off your DIY skills in the office? Well this just might be the perfect project for you. What I like about this project is that it allows you to do a little electrical hacking, some wood working, and some part repurposing. It might be fun to play with the outside design of the heater/fan, perhaps a robot theme.

Good luck with the projects.
