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?
Rebooted the Yelloweye project. Now doing long term listening tests. These were built out of PVC tubing, and have coaxial tweeters, that I installed myself.
Photo gear flightcase #2: a mini case to protect a bare minimum camera kit for my many concert shoots.
My increasingly popular Flightcase DIY guide got a complete makeover in the past few weeks. I changed the layout and added a lot of photos of tools and parts, included a number of tips and tricks, and even put up an example case project.
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 ),
