Those pin art boards that you can press your face or other body parts into are cheap and easy to come by. But The Q decided he wanted a much bigger one, so he set about the arduous task of drilling 4,758 tiny holes into plywood, then poking a skewer through each one.
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.
