A dramatic way to warm up any backyard space, the Blaze gives you a portable outdoor fireplace complete with a chimney to direct smoke and ash, and a storage area underneath for spare logs. Made from sturdy 3/16″ steel, and weighs about 200 lb when fully assembled.
Instructables contributor Mikeasaurus shows off his ridiculously dangerous looking creation, a skateboard which leaves a fiery trail in its wake. It drips out a small amount of fuel triggered by a foot-controlled switch, and ignites it with an electric sparker. Full build log here.
The Q shows us how to build a structurally-sound miniature house entirely out of wooden matchsticks, without any glue, then proceeds to burn it to the ground. Build one for yourself, and you’ll feel like a god as you control the fate of your tiny architectural creation.
After building a car engine we could see inside of, Warped Perception split some model rocket engines down the middle and sealed them under plexiglas so we can watch them ignite. We think an acrylic tube would burn more accurately, but it’s still awesome to watch.
Sculptor and makeup artist Akihito Ikeda is the man behind this incredible Elite Creature collectible – a half-scale (26″ tall) replica of his terrifyingly-awesome flaming skull he created back in 2015. Limited to 500 pieces, pre-orders start at Monsterpalooza 2017, 4/7-4/9/17.
In a scene that plays out like the end of Terminator 2, watch as these disused aluminum car rims are melted down in a hot furnace, so they can be reincarnated into other products. We kept waiting for those screaming heads to start popping out of the molten metal.
A fantastically gruesome replacement for the logs in your gas fireplace or fire pit. Each skull is made from heat-tolerant ceramic and lava granules, layered over a steel structure. They’re not cheap, but they are certainly awesome. Also available in white. (Thanks Doug!)
Giaco Whatever’s razor-edged spinning top is already deadly enough – now he’s taken aim at a variety of new objects to shred – from making some egg salad, to getting toothpaste out of the tube, to blowing up butane-filled lighters. In other news, Barbie got a new hairstyle.
We’ve seen the fire tornado trick before, but if you know Colin Furze, you know he’s always got to go to 11. Now, the British madman has gone and built himself a 20-foot-tall spinning fire rig that’s every bit as terrifying as an actual tornado. Oh, and it shoots fireworks.
If you thought that lighting 10,000 sparklers at the same time was spectacular, get a load of this video from JoyBlend, in which 20 times as much of the incediary mixture they put on the end of sparklers gets set ablaze. They cheated a bit, but the explosion is still awesome.
We’re at the point in life where we’d rather not have a birthday candle to represent every year we’ve been alive. But members from the Sri Chinmoy Center turned their cake into a bonfire with a whopping 72,585 candles on top. CO2 fire extinguishers let the cake remain edible.
TheBackyardScientist shares a simple way to create a small fire tornado with no moving parts. The trick is to split the glass receptacle in half and place each half around the flame slightly off center. The wind that comes in through the gaps will create the tornado effect.
(PG-13: Language) While the mighty hydraulic press is no match for these matches and lighters, its operator Lauri Vuohensilta is a mere mortal, and might want to stand behind the blast shield next time he plays with explosives. Now this is how you do a sponsored post.
