deadpool knife block

Why is this not a thing that I can buy? Fix this Ryan Reynolds.

Sadly, you’ll need modeling software, a 3d-printer and skills to make this Deadpool knife block a reality in your kitchen. If you have those things, good for you. I’m not jealous at all.

You can find the complete guide on Instructables.

cocktail ice

If murky ice cubes are ruining your sophisticated gatherings, Cocktail Chemistry can help.

The following tutorial video illustrates a process called “directional freezing” that allows sediments in the water to rise to to the top and be separated once frozen. In addition to being crystal clear, the resulting ice is customizable to any size and can be shaped into cubes balls and sticks.

If conventional Easter egg decorating is too mundane, you might consider automating the work with an Egg Bot machine. You can buy one, or you could choose to make your own using a Lego Mindstorms EV3 kit and the plans put together by Jason Allemann.

If you’ve been around long enough to remember when the flying toaster screensaver was invading your massive, clunky computer monitor, you will likely appreciate this 3D version created by the DIY experts over at Make.

The project saw a classic toaster fitted with craft store feather wings that are operated via cables by servo. The final product will continue to brown your bagel, but won’t be flying around your kitchen.

See how the project came together in the video below.

Andrei Muntian of MTM Wood employed a carefully arranged series of maple and walnut strips to fashion a hypnotic optical illusion cutting board.

The functional work of art was created by mapping out the pattern as a model in SketchUp before beginning the process of cutting, planing and assembling the wooden components.

See how it comes together in the video below.

gummy coke bottle

Instructables user Morena DIY has put her creativity to work by fashioning a gummy Coca-Cola bottle that is virtually indistinguishable from the real deal. It’s also amazingly easy to make, with the gummy portion being made simply by mixing the coke with gelatin, which is then poured into the bottle before being refrigerated. Once solid, the bottle is removed from the gummy interior and the original label and cap applied as a finishing touch.

Carrie Dennis of Thrillist decided to break away from Christmas tradition this year by fashioning her gingerbread house from the world’s favorite food: pizza.

Since pizza alone wouldn’t provide the support needed for the greasy abode, she erected an internal structure from cardboard, toothpicks and empty beer cans.

Hmmm. Using empty cans seems like an oversight to me. Quenching your thirst with the beery occupants of the pizza house you just consumed seems fun in a twisted “Three Little Pigs” kind of way.

As detailed in the tutorial below, the process involves sushi rice, spicy cod roe, squid, shrimp, seaweed, cucumber, radishes and a bit of creativity.

As cool as it looks, the process could pose some danger. Therefore, if you plan on doing this yourself, you may want to learn how to properly and safely discharge the device, as it can apparently hold a charge for quite some time.

Check out the gallery below to see how it was done.
