ben dror 01 Cordless Candlestick

Long-time MAKE reader Adam Ben-Dror carefully reskinned a 2.4 Ghz cordless phone handset with a 90-year-old candlestick telephone. A DTMF converter in the base preserves the function of the original rotary dial. Calls are begun by lifting the earpiece, and ended by hanging it up. As Adam writes, “the only sign that anything has been altered is the missing cord.” [Thanks, Adam!]
