    Meow, So this is the latest prop to come out of the 'Halloween Cat Productions' warehouse, Lol! It's made from two Halloween skulls I bought last year and a cheap sword, all bought at a local dollar store. I gave the sword a new paint job that I think turned out pretty well and I also...

    If you are not familiar with Barney please see this one at skeleton factory: http://www.skeleton-factory.com/Life-Size-Bargain-Basement-Barney-133 I know he's only 5 feet tall but isn't that skull a tad big? Or is the idea that this is a younger skeleton, so the skull is proportionately big to...

    So I want to add movement to my arduino controlled skeleton head. I already have a servo mounted in the jaw to move the jaw and that works really well, but after seeing how much cooler everyone's skulls look when then can move around makes me want to add that functionality to mine. I just...

    PIck this guy up the other day just standing there. He's got a little bit of surface rust but should clean up pretty easy. He's 7feet tall makes quite an impression even though it's made from lightweight metal my wife jump back a few feet when she walked into my shop. I have a few ideas of what...

    I know I am not supposed to post pictures until everyone gets their presents, but hey, this ain't THAT forum, and I ain't posted anything new in a long time, even though I have been working overtime and full speed ahead for two months already, I got little to show for it. I have 6 or 7 projects...

    My local Ace Hardware carries various MinWax stains, but none of them are gel stains; and I would rather my money go to the local guy than the corporate giants (Home Depot, Lowes).

    I finally have uploaded a video of my first animatronic project. Since I started it in late August, I really didn't have time to make the fine tuning adjustments I wanted to, but I was still pleased that I actually got it working. Unfortunately, the video isn't great. I don't own a video...

    I helped my family set up and run a home haunt. Most of the work was done by our head haunter but I helped where I could. In addition to brute labor, I built a flying crank ghost, a lightning/thunder setup, and a Scary Terry talking skull. This is the first time I've been involved in...
