Photographer Rui Nelson Silva came up with this simple plate and bolt solution for a bottom-attached camera strap.
It is based around a small aluminum plate that you can make if you have the skill or buy a similar one at your local hardware store.

While the holidays may be a time for families to come together, Christmas, Hanukkah and Kwanza provide a ripe breeding ground for torturing the ones we love. If you're a little different or nerdy and often find yourself the butt of relative?s jokes, here are a few ways to deal with their insensitive insults that don?t involve a pickaxe and a getaway plan to Mexico.

Materials: EXPEDIT Door Hacks
Description: We added some nice raw wood doors to our EXPEDIT bookshelves which we stained to match our furniture, allowing us to display/hide books and objects as we wish. We also hacked a smaller EXPEDIT for a vinyl listening station.

Materials: Ikea wooden candlestick holder
Description: I bought a drill bit (3/18"), that was long enough to go through the candlestick holder and drilled a hole. I bought some candlestick holders from Ikea and Michaels. The wooden candlestick holder from Michaels, has a metal piece that needs to be removed first, but that is easy to do. Then started drilling. I spray painted the unfinished wood candlestick holder.
I drilled a hole through the second candlestick holder from Ikea (wood finished). Spray painted it lightly, so it would match colors. (You could use both candlestick holders from Ikea, but I already had one that I wanted to use.)
I attached the lamp kit and used super glue to attach the two candlestick holders together.
Put on a lampshade and there you have it. My new table lamp. Hope you like it.

I think it’s clear by now that I’m not a fan of Case’s adoption of the Disney-style vault system for stock rotation. Perhaps it’s just sensitivity from Disney shoving their warehouse clearing program up our collective posteriors, and us quite literally buying it. “Hurry, before it goes back into the vault!” is not something I like hearing from one of my favorite blade builders. But like it or not, Case’s “vault” is opened and has drawn forth the Copperlock and Sowbelly, among others, to spread joy this Christmas.
I do wish they would have said something more like, “Hey, we know you buy knives for Dad at Christmas and he likes the classic stuff, so here ya go.” But maybe “Opening the Vault” just sounds more elegant.
The dealers have a bunch of Case-branded stag, mother of pearl, and bone in ready supply, and we’re guessing they will for a month or two until the bumped production run is depleted. So grab all the Cheetah, Copperlock, Sowbelly, Doctors, and Tuxedo pattern blades you like while supplies last, because sooner or later “The Vault” will snap shut again.

Compressed air canons are lots of fun for launching paper rockets. Turns out they are also pretty useful for indie films. What? Why would an indie film director want to launch a paper rocket? Actually, the compressed air can be used to throw a small pile of debris, creating a small "explosion" for an action sequence.
The awesome guys over at Realm Pictures came up with a great film that shows the entire setup for creating such an explosion, including the mentioned canon.
They are also trying to fund their ambitions underwater indie film via kick starters, and share the plans for this canon and a bunch of other cool film DIYs with backers (including the waterproof LED strip light we featured a while back), so give them a call on their Kickstarters page.
Thanks for the tip Rich
