Mason jar radio

I got the idea of putting an AM/FM radio into a Mason jar after a friend told me about this Kickstarter: The Public Radio. I thought it was a little overpriced, and way under-featured. It comes hard-programmed to just a single station.

So I took upon the challenge of breaking down a normal $12 radio, mounting the contents onto a lid of a Mason jar, and rewiring everything to keep it fully functional.

Motorcycle helmet unpainting

This helmet was painted yellow at one point in it's lifetime. (Not by me.) I had it sandblasted to its original white color. Now I'm using it as room decoration, and to hide my modem/router setup.
