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 9 the projects are:
Project: The Bullwhip by William Gurstelle. You don’t have to be Chuck Yeager to break the sound barrier. You just need a good bullwhip, which converts arm movement into supersonic speed and triggers the sonic boom we call a whip crack. Page 82
Project: Panoramic Pinhole Camera by Ross Orr. Lenseless and low-tech, pinhole cameras have always been maker-friendly. But forget the Quaker Oats carton, and go wide with this roll-film, panorama design. Page 92
