Frankenstein-inspired Wall Set Series

We can’t bring our creations to life without lightning so we’re going to build a lightning detector as part of our wall display to alert us when a storm is approaching! Together, we’ll assemble and wire the lightning detector module to the Arduino UNO and see the results on an LCD screen.

No monster laboratory is complete without a Jacob’s ladder. I’ve been fascinated by them since I first saw the electric arcs rising in the old black and white Frankenstein movie. We’ll be building our own as the centerpiece of our wall display.

Mad scientists love their mysterious and colorful liquids so we’ll build two that will go right next to the Jacob’s Ladder. Help me pick the colors!

To power all the elements, we need an oversized electrical box panel that will feature animated indicator lights, gauges and house our lightning detector. I also want to make it look like it’s been part of one too many experiments by adding faux corrosion and burn marks.

There are many of life’s important questions that science has yet to answer but none so paramount as: Did “he who smelt it, dealt it?” or even did “he who denied it, supplied it?” The answer has evaded mankind for far too long so today…

Corner Floating Shelves Plan

October 18, 2020
After completing the first part of my garage wrap-around storage system build, I ended up with a large 3-unit cabinet on one wall and another cabinet to store brooms and gardening tools on the adjacent wall. This left me with an awkward empty corner between…

3-Cabinet Storage Unit Plan

September 20, 2020
Like many of you, I use my one-car garage as a workshop but I also have to share the space with other household items that get stored in there too. Although my wall-mounted wire shelves kept things off the floor, it was an eyesore and…

Workbench Plan

June 29, 2020
Every maker needs a good workbench but they can get expensive at the store, especially one with casters, a shelf and other features. That's one of the reasons I've been using a plastic craft table with folding legs for a while. Like many of you,…
