Rubik's Cube + Archictecture + Heavy Drugs = The Future

This is unusual. We'd try to explain it, but we'll just give you the youtube video instead. It's six minutes long, but you'll get sucked in.

Can you imagine being on the 70th floor of this thing with a hangover?

Power Tool Drag Racing

power_tool_drag_racing.jpgLaughing Squid has some great photos and videos of a recent power tool drag race. From the looks of it, the event was held in some sort of post-apocalyptic Road Warrior compound, but on further investigation, it's just San Francisco. We're not sure what Bondage Barbie has to do with anything, but.....

Check it out here.

Blog Cabin

blogcabin.jpgWe just got word about Blog Cabin, a DIY Network project that has a really cool concept behind it. The deal is that you, the internet savvy viewers, go to the DIY website and vote on the various aspects of construction and the cabin gets built according to popular vote. At the moment, the voting is open for paint colors and the landscaping.

There are all sorts of other cool things over at the website; videos, updates, the cabin cam and of course, the voting.

Vote at the Blog Cabin website.

Contractor Destroys Porch Over Unpaid Bill

Update: Looks like youtube yanked the video, but here is the original.

This is pretty satisfying...

Lawn Mower Racing

Yesterday we told you about Scotts 20" push mower and while it may be nice, quiet, and all right for the Birkenstock wearers, there's one thing you'll never be able to do with it; strip it down and turn it into a high performance drag racer.

More after the jump...

Gardening Products for the Insane

Toro-Leaf-Lock.jpgWe can't imagine that anyone would ever look at a blowing leaf pile and think, "I bet if I encased that pile in a crunchy corn syrup-like product, it wouldn't be able to blow away." We also can't imagine that enough people would approve of the idea in order for it to make it to market. But it's out there and it's called Toro's Leaf Lock.

This Old House has info on Leaf Lock and almost 20 other bizarre gardening products over at their site. Check it out here.

Man Builds Stonehenge in Backyard

...And you thought that doing the bathroom renovation was difficult. Here's a guy who spends his time figuring out how to move 90,000 pound rocks around his yard. He does it all by himself with no modern technology whatsoever. The video is sort of long (over 6 minutes), but it's worth the watch.

Read past the jump for more Stonehenge video.

...Looking Around the Internet...

binoculars.jpgSince we're feeling pretty lazy this morning, we're just going to glom onto the hard work and effort of others. Here's what else is going on around the tool blogging world:

Tool King has just released their own line of tools called TKTools. At the moment it looks like they've got a few cordless drills and a nice looking driver. Their blog, Toologics, has all the info here and here. Check out the bit case that comes with the driver. Whoa.

The Hardware Aisle, as always, has a ton of cool stuff to check out. There's the Fatal Funnel bug killer, a ton of info on sanding, and an article about a 50 year old circular saw that's still going strong.

Toolmonger did some research and found out when the Skeletool is going to be back in stores here. They've also got their Flickr Pool which is fun to browse through every one in a while.

CopTool has a good Milwaukee-Bosch-Compact-Driver-head-to-head here .

Crane Accident

Is this for real? Either way it's pretty funny.

We love how one worker's reaction is to just start running away as fast as he can.
