I made a couple signs one for the office I work in and another for a friend's office.
I've been wanting to make a boom case for some time. This mini boom box is a proof of concept. I plan to make a larger one with better quality parts in the near future.
Built a funnel holder to make a life a bit easier when filling jars of Razor's Awesome Sauce.
I built this relatively simple device for the sales team at the company I work for. They wanted something to celebrate when a sale closed, so I built a box that plays a tune and turns on a rotating light when the button is pushed.

For Halloween 2013 I built several tombstones.
The main body of the tombstones were build using insulation board. I glued several boards together to add some thickness and cut the shape using my hot wire cutter. The base of the tombstones were built using 2"x6" and 2"x4"
I built a timer power box to automatically turn off power to my soldering iron after 30 minutes.
The power box uses an ATTiny 85 and relay to control power to the outlet. When the button is pressed the timer resets to 30 minutes. The relay section of the circuit is based off the circuit provided in this Sparkfun tutorial
Halloween/Christmas decoration built using a cardboard box, cardboard tubes, papier-mâché and hot glue. The flames are flickering LEDs (purchased on ebay) connected to a 5v power source. The 'flames' covering the LEDs are taken from battery powered tea lights purchased at a dollar store.
I thought it would be nice to have a Larson Scanner shield for my Arduino, so I built one. It's simple and cheap to build and would probably make a good first project for someone wanting to try etching their own PCB.
The circuit is rather simple, it has 9 LEDs and 3 switches.
The following parts are needed to make this project.
