You've probably already seen Bruce's incredible computer desk, since that's their most famous creation:
He made it from an old pipe organ!
See lots more photos of the house here, and thanks to all of you who sent in the link!
And since we're talking about my steampunk first loves, here's an older - but still awesome - video from 2009 spotlighting one of my first-ever Maker heroes, Jake Von Slatt:
I love the fact that Jake not only makes beautiful, re-purposed and handcrafted steampunk items, he also tells you how he does a lot of it on his website, The Steampunk Workshop. (If you haven't seen it yet, check out the microphone he made for the Girl Genius creators. Goooorgeous!)
If you just felt a disturbance in the Force, then I think I may have an explanation:
This is a real book.
Yep, it's Star Wars, "reimagined in glorious iambic pentameter." Oh. My. Bard.
(Not exactly Steampunk, I know, but I figure this is still the right audience for it. :D)
It's not out 'til July, but you can pre-order the hardcover at that Amazon link up there for less than $12! Suh-WEET! I think I want it just for the cover art. Is that wrong?
Next up, we're getting a double-dose of amazing steampunk decor today, because Sarah M. spotted a steampunk restaurant that's guaranteed to make you swoon. Me, I'm already on the floor.
HUBBA HUBBA ME WANT.
Look at that door! And the recessed lighting on those walls! With the pipes and the gauges and the dripping-pipe light fixtures! AAAIEEE!
See more pics over on TecheBlog.
Since I seem to be on an interior design streak today: A few of you have sent me this fantastic roundup of sources for everything you need to make your own caged pendant lights for - get this - less than $11 each! DUDE. We are so doing this. (Just FYI, John, sweetie.)
And finally, I've seen a few different versions of "mounted tentacle" art out there, but this one Rachel C. found is by far the coolest:
"Octopus Tentacle Wall Sculpture" $120 by ArtAkimbo
Not only is the sculpture creepily realistic, the acrylic "water splash" and rusted porthole hanger are fantastic extra touches. These come in three different sizes and a few other colors as well. I particularly like the blue/green:
Or for a slightly more modern and cartoony style (or at least less slimy), there's also this one:
"Squid Tentacle Sculpture," $375
So fun! And that's officially something I never thought I would say about disembodied tentacles, y'all.
Hope you guys are having a great weekend! As always, please share your steamy creations/finds here in the comments or over on the Epbot Facebook page!
