Ahoy there you scurvey dogs! I am the mad scientist known as The Green Dungeon Alchemist!
or .. Joe ... *cough*

I build many strange electronic devices and have alot in the works right now that I will finish in the near future and display to you all Smile


Here is one of my most recent creations, a "casemod" of sorts for a 9 volt battery Laughing
Made all but the terminals myself Smile the terminals were made for me by a friend with a lathe, I aged and stained the wood myself and made my own stencil for number/letter Wink the whole thing is about 8cm x 8cm

Thanks, with a hammer and some time Wink
Heres a bit more detail for you:

Bash the edges with the straight side of a hammer like this one to put grooves in it perpendicular to the edge, then bash it around a bit more with bricks and whatever bashy things you might happen to have, I used a screwdriver. Then sand the wood and stain it with a dark wood stain, maybe give it two coats, then sand the stain off a bit leaving it in grooves and nooks and crannies. for best results try to sand it off the corners and edges more than anywhere else. Then stain again Smile thats pretty much it!

Great job, looks like it is 1000 years old. Did it light the paths inside the pyramids originally?

Do you mean lacquer? If so, no, just stained a few times with some good dark woodstain Smile

Maybe not that old Wink they used metal jars and vinegar back then Laughing it will be powering some devices that look equally as old though, I'll be sure to make a post about them, although they aren't really hacked gadgets but they are gadgets Smile
