A company called Pure Timber produces Cold-Bend™ hardwood, which lets you skip right to the clamping/bending step. Check this stuff out: So how is that possible? Is this stuff
The amazing thing about the Porsche 911 is that it's essentially had the same form for over 50 years. At least, in broad strokes. With this animation from Donut Media, you can see that what we think of as subtle design changes were actually rather significant, spread over time. It's

While they clearly did not hire a graphic designer to lay out the type, this sign cost the city money to design, produce, distribute and install. The entire point of these two symbols… …is that they don't require an explanation and can be understood by those who cannot read

The problem with a nuclear bomb is that it wipes out everything within its blast radius, then renders the land uninhabitable with radiation. Mass murdered Stephen Paddock sprayed a crowd with automatic fire, indiscriminately killing whomever he could get. But what if there was a way to quickly, easily, surgically
Probably not what the designers intended, aesthetically speaking. But here's a cheap, easy way to keep kicked-up debris from flying into the grill of your delivery truck. Or heck, maybe they're trying to reduce airflow.
Those of us not involved with leatherworking may have never seen this tool: Those are called swivel knives. The user rests a finger in the curved saddle up top to provide downward pressure, and the rest of the tool swivels between the thumb and other fingers, allowing the user

When it comes to making marks on leather, one commonly thinks of stamping or branding. But skilled craftsman like Japan-based Tomohiro Kanno can produce stunning patterns in leather with carving knives. Take a look at this guy's work: Kanno produces handmade one-off leather goods for sale, and perusing his website,
The makeshift sidewalk lounge I wrote about earlier, sited on Baxter Street, is apparently experiencing growth in its numbers of patrons. The unseen people who populate this lounge--I've yet to catch them in the act, as I only pass this way in the morning--have amassed more furniture, including two rolling
It must be awesome to be wealthy. So a Porsche enthusiast named Scott Blattner owns a Porsche 964. (That's what Porsche called the 911 Carreras made from 1989 to 1994, which had styling revisions.) Blattner's model was made in 1990, but he approached Singer Vehicle Design, an aftermarket company that

(World Against Toys Causing Harm) released their 45th annual list of nominees for the 10 Worst Toys of 2017, highlighting "potentially hazardous toys [that] should not be in the hands of children."

Power Practical's Luminoodle Task design is not only powerful, but portable, lightweight and flexible, which opens up a whole new world of lighting possibilities: I'm digging
Situated at an intersection of two streets that each have a slight grade, this restaurant has angled sidewalks on both its south and east faces. The restaurant owner had custom benches made to compensate for the grades on each side. But every morning when they open, the guy who pulls
