After building himself an F1 car out of soda cans, builder The Q decided to make himself another cool, but highly-impractical vehicle. This time, he spent over 200 hours building a bicycle entirely out of wood and glue – including the frame, wheels, chain, seat and pedals.
This wouldn’t be the first time we saw a machine gun that fires rubber bands, but this time out, we’ve got The Q showing us step-by-step how he built his from cardboard, wood, string, hot glue, and popsicle sticks. If you’d rather not DIY, you can buy a wood one here.
The Q shows us how to create a battery-powered trap that can safely catch a rat or other small creature behind bars, using cardboard, wooden sticks, hot glue, and a simple electronic trigger. We’re sure a rodent could chew through it quickly, but it’s still a neat build.
Maker The Q’s latest (and possibly greatest) build is a larger than life, fully-articulated LEGO minifig costume you can build yourself using cardboard and hot glue. With more than two weeks left until Halloween, you should have plenty of time to make yours.
When The Q isn’t building weapons from PVC and cardboard, or playing a the world’s loneliest ping pong game, he’s stacking coins. Here, he shows us how to neatly arrange 200 coins to create a cantilevered bridge that hangs off the edge of a table without using glue.
Ever resourceful maker The Q shows us how to build a shoulder-mounted quad launcher like the one Arnie had in Commando. Only this one is made from cardboard, PVC, and a cigarette lighter, and fires plastic soda bottles as its rockets. It still looks like it would hurt like hell.
