In each volume of MAKE we have “major projects” these project pages are meaty step-by-step articles with start-to-finish photos, precise instructions and how-to learning that can range from making a VCR cat feeder to ariel kite photography. In MAKE volume 11 the projects are:
Retro R/C Racer by Frank E. Yost. Using scrap sheet metal and pop rivets, you can construct a model 1930s British Midget racer with modern radio control capabilities. Page 94
Kitchen Floor Vacuum Former by Bob Knetzger. Mold light, durable, and cool-looking 3D parts in your kitchen. Page 106
Spin The Birdie by Larry Cotton. Get awesome avian photos by moving your camera closer to the birds — and rotating them for the perfect pose. Page 116
Purely Platonic by Charles Platt. Have fun with classic Platonic geometry while building your own dodecahedron table lamp. Page 164
