MAKE Projects – Volume 9

MAKE Projects – Volume 9

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

Project: The $5 Cracker Box Amplifier by Blind Lightnin’ Pete and Ed Vogel. Small box, big sound. Page 104

Working with Carbon Fiber by John Wanberg. Form, lay up, and cure your own high-performance composites. Page 164
