In 2014, you probably started, and maybe even finished, some amazing projects of your own. Whether it’s writing, painting, glassblowing, or carpentry, we all have hobbies that we can be proud of. The new year allows us to create even bigger and better things!
Here are some of the most mind-blowing DIY projects of 2014 to inspire you to go out and start your next opus. Maybe you’ll find the one that speaks to you!
1.) Cardboard Millennium Falcon
That’s right. Someone out there (a saint, in my mind) decided to spend a large quantity of timeconstructing a cardboard replica of the Millennium Falcon. #Hero
2.) Seinfeld Fish Tank
This was a pretty amazing project, and one that definitely shows the commitment of a true fan – see how he did it here.
3.) Minecraft Room
This room, remodeled to look like Minecraft, is any fan’s dream.
4.) Bentley on Wheels
A family whose corgi was diagnosed with a disease that was paralyzing their dog’s hind legs, built a contraption that would allow him to walk around freely.
5.) Han Solo in Carbonite
This was obviously built by a mega-fan, but that doesn’t mean the rest of us can’t appreciate the hard work and skill that went in to recreating Han Solo captured in carbonite.
6.) Game of Thrones Table Map
Not only can you eat off of this flawless table featuring a map of Westeros, you can also plan future conquests to expand your kingdom (if you’re into that sort of thing).
7.) Penny Table
One man took a bunch of pennies, did a ton of work, and ended up with something amazing.
8.) Constellation Art
This awesome creation was made with simple materials, but came out looking absolutely amazing. Imagine being able to look at constellations on your wall whenever you turn out the lights. So cool.
9.) Scrapwood Dinner Table
It’s always great when something that you thought was trash can be turned into something beautiful. This gorgeous table was made using wood scraps that would’ve gone to the dump, had they not been salvaged.
10.) LED Cube
This complex LED cube is one of the coolest creations I’ve ever seen. See how it was made and how it looks in action here.
11.) Stainless Steel Acoustic Guitar
The instructions for this stainless steel guitar are not for the casual DIY-er, but it is nevertheless a commendable achievement.
12.) Word Clock That Wish’s You “Happy Birthday”
Word clocks are pretty cool. But word clocks that are designed to remember your birthday are even cooler. This clock was custom made for a couple so it would wish them “Happy Birthday” every year.
13.) All-In-One Camping Van
This person was fed up with camping the old-fashioned way. Instead, they brought camping in style to a whole new level.
14.) Homemade Boat
A father and son in England built a huge boat in their backyard. The only way to get it out of the back yard was via crane.
15.) Revamped Mini Trailer
Who says you can’t travel in style and comfort? This remodeled trailer was made from a 1970s reject. As you can see, it came out the other side.
