tetris ice cubes

An oldie but goodie, Instructables user Tetranitrate helps you add a little classic video game goodness to your cup with his Tetris Ice Cubes tutorial. In a nutshell, you make little wooden blocks, round out the edges, glue them into signature Tetris shapes, glue them in place in a tray, coat with olive oil, mix and pour on food-grade silicone, pull out the wood pieces, and you have a custom Tetris ice tray. Tetranitrate mixed some food coloring into the water to get the color, but methinks you could use juice to make them extra tasty.

Goli Mohammadi

I’m senior editor at MAKE and have worked on MAKE magazine since the first issue. I’m a word nerd who particularly loves to geek out on how emerging technology affects the lexicon as a whole. When not fawning over perfect word choices, I can be found on the nearest mountain, looking for the ideal alpine lake or hunting for snow to feed my inner snowboard addict.

The maker movement provides me with endless inspiration, and I love shining light on the incredible makers in our community. The specific beat I cover is art, and I’m a huge proponent of STEAM (as opposed to STEM). After all, the first thing most of us ever made was art.
