Amr MCI shows off another neat cardboard weapon build. This one-handed launcher doesn’t fire actual grenades, but it does produce satisfying explosions as it bursts skinny balloons filled with baby powder. Now we want a revolver version that can pop multiple balloons.
MR Custom Crafts shows how they made a keychain-sized hand grenade pendant by spinning a piece of wood on a lathe made from a power drill and shaping it with an angle grinder and a file. To complete the design, they machined a cap from a threaded brass pipe fitting and a lever from some scrap metal.
This grenade-shaped water bottle is most definitely not TSA-approved. It features a collapsible silicone resin body that can expand to hold up to 18 oz. of liquid, along with a leakproof, lockable nozzle cover for sipping. It comes in grey, red, and four camouflage patterns.
Since we all know that those dumb little cubes are so yesterday, drop a bomb in your drink with these silicone ice molds. Big ice cubes keep your drink colder longer without watering it down, and at 4.5″ x 3″ x 2.5″ they’re the perfect size for most glasses. Sold in sets of two.
A real hand grenade is designed to be tossed, then gives its thrower about 4 or 5 seconds to take cover before it explodes. This clever build from Make It LEGO follows the same paradigm. It stores energy in a rubber band “fuse” which then releases plastic shrapnel after a few seconds. Check out the build tutorial here.
Give your home an explosive new look with one of these handmade hand grenade side tables from Reimagined Wood Shop. Their skeletonized design cuts down on weight while still offering rigidity. They’re cut from 0.72″ thick hardwood veneer plywood and come in 18″ tall and 24″ tall variants. Just don’t pull that pin.
