How to Make a Wooden Jack-O- Lantern | Scroll Saw Halloween Project – Small Shop Works

Designed in Fusion360 this jack-o-lantern is cool not only because of how it turned out, but because of the process that got it to that point. If you are not familiar with slicing 3D models to make tangible objects this is a great video to watch to see just how cool it is. This is an all around great project and one you should definitely check out in its entirety. While your there make sure to add Small Shop Works to your list of subscriptions.

How to Make a Baseball Bat – Goncalo Quinas

A baseball bat may not seem Halloween themed, but this one is for sure. It is really cool to see someone turn a bat on a lathe, it’s actually something I’ve never seen done before. With the killer paint job that is applied this would definitely fit with a really cool Halloween costume. Go check out the full build video and see the other awesome content being created on this channel. Like the Justice League logo.

Motion-Activated Scarecrow – The Idle Engineer

I love Do It Yourself Halloween decorations and this one is amazing. Rather than dropping large sums of money on a decoration they wanted, they made their own and I love it. I think you will love it too. I don’t want to give too much away, so make sure you go check out this amazing video that is really well explained and for the love of all that’s good, give them a subscription. They are a young channel and need some of that maker love. So go show them why we are the best community on the internet.

Plaster Mold for the Injection Molder! – Wildman Tech

At first glance you might say, hey – this isn’t Halloween themed. To which I would say, I don’t care. It is an injection molded finger and it is creepy – in a good way. But seriously, this is amazing, and thinking of the possibilities with this injection molding machine leaves me wanting more. Make sure you check out the whole video to see the clever way that Marsh molds this finger. It’s awesome.
