Fuzzcraft

Welcome to the world of Fuzzcraft.com! This website is a log of many of the DIY projects I did over the course of over 15 years. I'm a photographer, I used to be a performing musician, and I also did some light effect projects. I also write reviews for some gadgets I buy. Use the sliding tabs on the right to view all the projects and articles. To the left are more general links and links to my other departments. Hopefully I will have inspired you to start building your own fuzzy project. Others have done so, so why not?

Features

Yelloweyes 10

The Yelloweye project rebooted. Now doing long term listening tests. These pods-on-a-stick were built out of PVC tubing, and feature coaxial drivers with Kevlar cones and Neodymium tweeters.

Flightcasediy2_10

Photo gear flightcase #2: a mini case to protect a bare minimum camera kit for my many concert shoots.

Flightcasediy_index

The incredibly popular Fuzzcraft Flightcase DIY guide is still the most visited page on this website.

ringlight4-1_contraption

Ring light 4.1: a fiber optic TTL ring flash. Thousands of optic fibers guide the light from a camera's popup flash to a ring around the lens. Essentially a very simple idea, with cheap materials, but with stunning results. This is the second, improved version that can be used on any lens.

Why I build stuff myself

Why? Because I can. Because it's fun. Because I'm a cheap-ass. Because I inherited it from my father. Because I have the unstoppable urge to create and build stuff you simply can't buy in a store. Because I like to make noise and dust with power tools. Because burning and melting stuff is awesome. Because it's exciting to start with nothing and end up with something useful. Because I like nothing more than educating myself. Because it keeps me occupied. Because it has helped me to get a job twice. Because I like a mind challenge once in a while.

Have fun (or pity me for my nerd streak smiley),

Joris.

As you can see, there's a new comment system in place, which allows you to comment on every article and/or project on this website, directly at their respective pages. It took me the better part of a day to write and install it, so please post your comments if you have any. I'm still fine tuning everything, so some small bumps during message entry can be expected. I won't remove messages, unless they're offensive or spam.

Dude, this is exactly how I feel. I also inherited it from my father, at a very early age. It was the best education I could have got!

Sweet stuff & ideas here. Keep it up.

i wanted to build road cases with carpet covering, or plastic coating. Do you know where to find either carpet or plastic covering material that could be hot glued to boxes or road cases. Thanks
