MAKE Projects – Volume 04

MAKE Projects – Volume 04

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 04 the projects are:


Cigar Box Guitar by Ed Vogel. Build and play this sweet-sounding 3-string instrument in an afternoon. Page 76

Circuit Bendingby Sabastian Boaz and Cristiana Yambo. Modify a Casio keyboard (or other electronic audio stuff) and start playing some of the strangest sounds you’ve ever heard. Page 88

Homemade Strobe Photography by Tom Anderson and Wendell Anderson. Take pictures of popping balloons, breaking glass, and water droplets. Page 102

Microcontroller Programming by Sparkle Labs
. Easy-to-program chips tell circuitry to do what you want. Page 159

You can subscribe to MAKE to get in on this project action (use code CMAKE for $5 off) and you’ll also get access to the MAKE digital edition, it’s exactly like our print magazine, but online (no DRM), shareable, printable and can be accessed from just about any computer. Back issues of MAKE are also available in our Maker store.
