If you are obsessed with Star Wars, then you are most definitely going to like any DIY project that aims at replicating one of the many unique props used in this epic super-galactic saga.

Darth Vader Outdoor Wood Stove Lets You Join The Smoky Side…

vader-log-burner

As a writer, it’s nearly impossible to resist the temptation to make Star Wars puns when writing Star Wars related headlines. Our apologies for that. But, unnecessary apologies aside, it’s a pretty cool project you’re looking at. Instructables user “doddieszoomer” took an old bottle of propane, a grinder, a welder and a marker, and created a wood burning stove that would look great in anyone’s backyard. The Instructables link below gives you a step by step, and it looks like the kind of thing easily accomplished in an afternoon by any moderately capable handyman.

Han Solo Frozen In Carbonite Toilet Seat

han-solo-toilet-seat

We sense a disturbance in the force. It’s… it’s as if a new Star Wars movie is being made… and suddenly the market is flooded with all kinds of merchandise. What else can help explain the fact that you’re looking (and even perhaps contemplating buying) a toilet seat sporting the iconic Hal Solo Frozen In Carbonite image? Brushing aside the indignity of having Han preside over your smelly expulsions, the seat itself is carefully hand-painted by an artist in New Hampshire. It’s made from wood and should feel like a quality product. There’s also a Satisfaction Guarantee on the purchase, so if you don’t feel right about the $60 you’ll have to spend to own this, you can easily get a refund. Each one is custom made, and takes between 7 and 14 days to ship out.

Metallomaniac: Star Wars 3D Metal Model Kits

Star Wars 3D Metal Model Kits

The best things to have are those that you’ve made with your blood, sweat, and tears. You won’t have to go through such lengths for these three-dimensional Star Wars metal models, though. They might look complex and difficult to make, but would you believe that each and every one of them started out from flat, laser-etched steel sheets?

All you have to do is pop out the pieces from the sheet. Then you bend, fold, and connect each part with the other until you end up with the character that you’ve chosen.

Want: Star Wars X-Wing Knife Block

x-wing-knife-block

We’re going to go ahead and speculate that the Star Wars franchise will print money until the end of time. Not only is there yet another movie instalment in the works, but the onslaught of merchandise is seemingly never ending. Just look at the above Star Wars X-Wing Knife Block. It’s awesome, and we want it, even though we feel guilty wanting to give even more money to people who already have too much. Oh well, the tug on our consumerist heart is strong with this one, and we’ll have to give up about $120 to get it. It comes with 5 knives: a Cook’s knife (335mm), a Bread knife (320mm), a Carving Knife (325mm), a Utility knife (235mm), and a Paring knife (195mm). This ships in August and is only available for pre-order now.

Take My Money: R2-D2 Infrared-Projecting Keyboard

R2-D2 infrared-projecting keyboard

Tablets can’t replace laptops, although keyboard attachments are helping it get there. The big pain when it comes to working on a tablet is the on-screen keyboard and the limited functionality of some apps. While there’s little you can do for the latter, there are some alternatives you can try for the former, like the R2-D2 Infrared-Projecting Keyboard .

It’s neat, it’s compact, and it looks pretty awesome, especially if you’re a Star Wars fan (who isn’t?) The R2-D2 keyboard connects to your device via Bluetooth 3.0 and is compatible with Android, iOS, Windows 7/8, and OSX. When you “type,” the infrared sensor detects which letter your finger is on and turns it into a digital signal.
