Today's One Day Build is a custom organizer and sorter for 31 different types of staples that Adam keeps in rotation.
We're so thrilled to be joined by Muppet performer and puppet builder Dave Goelz on the show this week to talk about the projects he's taken on during the past six months. While many of us know Dave from his work on The Muppet Show as The Great Gonzo and other characters, he's also a lifelong maker and fabricator. Dave and Adam compare notes about their build and problem solving processes and the joy of making things.
Adam embarks on a build of the Ghostbusters Ecto Goggles prop, an essential part of his Ghostbusters cosplay. And to create the rare night-vision goggle eyepiece, Adam turns to vacuum forming and carves an accurate buck of the frame. But when Adam's vacuum forming machine breaks down, Adam switches gears and rebuilds his vacuum former to restore this long-running tool to its former glory!
Adam's latest long-term project comes to fruition in the form of the Good Samaritan sidearm--Hellboy's iconic sidearm from the films. It's taken all of his machining skills and more to scratch build this revolver prop from chunks of aluminum, and Adam has documented the journey in this new series of One Day Builds. In this first part, Adam tackles the oversized barrel and top rail. Thankfully, Adam has some great reference material and sources. Let's get started!
