Wood and Brass iPod Mini: the Druid’S Music Player
Nature lover/not quite hip iPod owner Josh D shows us what Dremel and good taste can do. Josh D sent his iPod mini to a time way way way before retro by equipping it with a cedar wood case with brass screws and plates.

Jaw-Dropping, Wallet-Emptying Steampunk Flash Drive
Flash drives are becoming a popular item for the steampunk modding community, but projects like this are rare even so. This incredibly detailed piece of steampunk art sold out in a day at Etsy… even at the price of $165.

Bamboo Keyboard and Mouse Give Your Computer Wood
Tired of plain old plastic peripherals? Own this computer? Then you might want to check out this keyboard and mouse made out of wood.

World’S Slowest Macbook is Carved Out of Wood
Kyle Buckner may not be a stranger to Apple-inspired art projects, but that doesn’t make his latest effort any less impressive. He’s created a beautiful replica Macbook–and he made it out of wood. That’s got a beautiful gloss–moreso, in fact, than my actual Macbook.

Wooden Pac-Man Double Ring is Not Quite a Weapon

Wooden Pac-Man Double Ring is Not Quite a Weapon
Everyone loves Pac-Man (and if you don’t, we don’t want to know about it), so it’s not really surprising to see his familiar shape in even the oddest of places… until those places are really odd.

Steampunk Keyboard Makes Old Look New Again

Steampunk Keyboard Makes Old Look New Again
Steampunk-inspired computers and accessories are becoming popular themes for modders, and even so, this particular keyboard stands apart thanks to the sheer creativity of the approach. Also? Plaid. Who doesn’t like plaid? Gone is the dark, brassy look of most of the steampunk mods we’ve seen; Markus’s keyboard is old, battered and faded, but still noble somehow.

Bamboo Speakers Perfect for Pandas With Ipods

Bamboo Speakers Perfect for Pandas With Ipods
It not often these days that you see inexpensive portable speakers made out of anything but plastic. But these well-priced compact speakers are actually made of durable bamboo, a highly unusual material for speaker enclosures. According to the folks over at SourcingMap, the bamboo provides a more extensive sound range than other small speakers, but I’m not so sure given the less-than-stellar 300-10,000Hz frequency response range quoted on their site.

Arcade Joystick Coat Hangers: Control Your Clutter
Arcade fans, here’s a great way to keep all your Pac-Man hoodies and Space Invaders jackets organized, instead of throwing them on the floor like you usually do.

Wooden Wall-E: How Many Trees Had to Die?

Wooden Wall-E: How Many Trees Had to Die?
Disney commissioned UK-based sculptors and a group called Morpheus Prototypes to build this wooden sculpture of Wall-E as a gift for Pixar/Disney Chief Creative Officer John Lasseter. Here’s a closer look: I don’t know anything about woodworking or sculpting, so I’ll leave it up to you guys to think of how long it could have taken to build this and how much it’s worth.

The Perfect Unison’S Wooden Headphones

The Perfect Unison’S Wooden Headphones
The headphone geniuses over at The Perfect Unison teamed up with the equally ill Dutch artist Parra to produce a limited edition of beautiful wooden headphones called The Perfect Unison x Parra. They probably ran out of creativity before they got to naming the thing.

Salad Bowl Speakers Serve up Scrumptious Sound [IKEA Hack]

Salad Bowl Speakers Serve up Scrumptious Sound [IKEA Hack]
While you could fill your salad bowl with lettuce, tomatoes, bacon bits and honey dijon dressing, that would be pretty boring. Personally, I prefer my salads to be made from anodized aluminum, magnets, and wire. Yum.

Star Wars + Starbucks Cups = Tie Fighter [Papercraft]

Star Wars + Starbucks Cups = Tie Fighter [Papercraft]
Looking for something to do with all those Starbucks coffee cups you collect every morning? Why not turn them into some great geek art like this guy did. Photographer Dan Winters (from WIRED) saw all those cups, stirrers and other paper miscellany and was inspired to turn them into an awesome TIE Fighter model.

Triangular LED Wood Clock Conceals Its True Identity

Triangular LED Wood Clock Conceals Its True Identity
When not telling time, these clever clocks look like a triangular hunk of wood. But switch them on, and a bright red 7-segment LED display hidden behind the thin wood veneer reveals the current time. These aren’t the first clocks I’ve seen that pull off this illusion, but what makes these ones unique is their stylish angular face design, which makes them easy to read whether standing up or sitting down.

Where to Put Your Money in This Bear Market
I read a news story the other day that whenever the economy is in the crapper, sales of safes shoot through the roof. I guess its better than putting your money under the mattress, right? Here’s a crazy safe that should keep all but the most devious of thieves away from your stash.
