I am so impressed by all of things everyone has made! Although I mainly draw, I had a strong desire a couple of years ago to create an object, something that would take a long time to do--a monument to hours of my time! So, I would like to share the results of that with everyone. I hope to branch out into creating other types of objects, as well as more drawings, in the future.
I have made several of these Stargates, it's 40" (1 meter) diameter, and can be lit with leds if you wanted :)
Made in 9 segments with all the symbols made separate, and glued on, the shevrons cast in tinted epoxy, and everything painted by hand.
I made a flashlightsaber: [Can't seem to post images for some reason.]
It's a 3D-printed lightsaber model with a built-in flashlight.

I have made myself a custom display cabinet to put in my growing collection of 1/6 scale fingers.
The cabinet was made of clear acrylic, mirrored acrylic, ply wood, and hard wood.
The main build is complete but I do still want to put in some lights to really finish it off.
I've made some wood sculpture props and have a bunch of projects in progress. Most of them are figures.
This is my favorite Steampunk gun that I've made.
I just have to connect old Hen here to his Plaque and he's a fishing trophy of a different kind.
I had quite a bit of scrap wood in bags so I tried making a dinosaur skull , this one's a 1/3 adult size Parasaurolophus. There's still a lot to do on it yet.
Some paint details yet to do. I didn't do this on a lathe it's all vertical contour cut. I wanted to make it but lathes are too expensive for me.
I had a dream that I made a violin that had strange carved patterns so I did my research on violins when I woke up and several weeks later I had a violin. It works too.
@Absrnd: Dude, that Star Gate is epic! Love the details. Nicely done :-)
Hydra, that Mr. Limpet fish is beautiful! Please tell me you're not going to really mount him like a trophy (yes! do it!) because that would just be sick (so sick dawg!).
Indeed . I made him in "Thrum" pose I thought that would be appropriate.
I made a little fake brass tag at the bottom of the mounting plaque that says "Das Limpet".
Yes. Even sicker. I thought of making this ever since I saw Henry in a fish shop window on a background of Sylvester, tweety and granny.
NOVA Arms Limited Model 77 Osiris, electronically-fired chemical laser pistol, chambers a 10x14 MM LaserChem round from a 10-round stripper clip.
Built from PVC piping, wood, Nerf parts, IKEA hangers, and various greebles. Posting more pics soon!
I'm new to Tested, although I've been sharing on The RPF for quite a while, but couldn't resist sharing the finish of the ROTJ Thermal Detonator I've built to give as a gift. Fully functioning lights and sounds, and motion detection to switch between modes. The step-by-step pics and notes are on Tumblr, along with the other build projects I have going on or have completed.

This vampire hunting kit is a personal project I've been tinkering with for the past couple of months, all made from inexpensive materials. More making of pics here - http://tinyurl.com/hs6fnbv
@Brian Taylor: That's beautiful work. I love how unified it all looks.
Thanks @SamH glad you like it.
@Hydra: The Amazing Mr Limpet. Hadn't thought about that movie in years. Loved it as a kid-and I agree, mounted as a fishing trophy is just . . . wrong, in all the right ways.
