Steampunk gun is the project for this month, and it should prove to be crafty and fun like last month's goggles.
There are several ways to make a steampunk gun, with an almost infinate amount of ways to fashion and fabricate.
A simple way is to start with a large squirt gun or Super Soaker of any size, from the small singles to the two-handed monsters. Nerf guns are also a great source. They all have a retro-futuristic shape, and when painted, distressed, and embelleshed, can look real vicious.
You could also create the entire gun out of parts and pieces of junk. Wood, lamp parts, PVC, clock parts, canisters, valves, vaccuum tubes, the list goes on!
Remember, you can cut off any part of your base gun and replace it with other parts and pieces.
Start collecting parts and pieces you want to use to fabricate your gun. Dig through your containers and drawers to find these various things, throw 'em in a box and you're all set.
PARTS: (varied based on what you are making)
Squirt/Nerf gun, any size
Wire, heavy gauge
TOOLS: (varied based on how you are fabricating)
Super Glue / JB Weld
Hot Glue gun/glue sticks
Soldering iron + solder
Spray paint (black, copper, silver, brown, etc)
Screws of various size
Folding work table
Extension cord for your tools
Canopy for the sunny back yard
Chili Cook-Off-Battle-Royal! Back by popular demand!
Bring in your best chili that you can create. Everyone will cast a vote, and the entries will score in categories of:
1) Best Tasting
3) Best Presentation
There will be outlets in case you need to plug in a crock pot or hot plate.
Winners will rise to glory, the losers will be fed to the lions.
TABLE OF PHAT LEWT:
Bring in something for the table and you'll get to draw from the virtually bottomless container of wonderous and mystical items.
Thanks for reading all the way to the bottom. You're awesome!
