Love My Custom Wood handcarves these impressively intricate models of Han and Chewie’s iconic ride using a big hunk of white cedar wood. The large version measures 32.5″ x 21.5″, but there’s a smaller version if you don’t have the space or galactic credits to spare.
Tennessee Forged starts out with CRKT Woods tomahawks, then dresses them up with a new handle treatment, copper rivets, a leather neck guard, custom filework on the head, and a rust preventive oxide coating. Choose from axe/spike, axe/hammer, or axe only variants.
Artist Cyril Bagnost presents a cool take on 3D acrylic illusion lamps, with whimsical low-poly designs cut precisely to the outline of the animal. The bulldog and panther are pretty sweet, but we also dig his Jeff Koons-inspired balloon dog. Lamps are powered via USB.

Woodworker Frank Howarth shows off a truly amazing build – a giant version of a human eyeball, meticulously handcrafted by layering and turning rings of cherry, birch, walnut, and ebony wood. We love the way it shines in the light under all that lacquer and wax.
Builder Peter Brown takes a hunk out of a log of worm-eaten walnut wood and gradually lathes and shapes it into a beautiful work of art. The defects in the wood make working with it much harder, but result in a stunning organic look to the finished piece. Needles to say, it won’t hold cereal milk.
Looks like we won’t be leaving the house because it’s football season now, so it’s a good thing that the Sweet Brittle Baking Company can ship, among other delicious treats, these Buckeye candies. Perfect for celebrating when The Ohio State beats that team up north.

Model maker Adam Throgmorton shows off an incredible build – an intricate HO-scale replica of an old-school wooden rollercoaster that not only looks awesome, but is fully functional. Though the speed it zooms around at seems implausibly fast if it were to be scaled up.
