Adam Savage’s “Cabin Fever” Coat Hanger Sculpture!

Adam shares a little bit of Mythbusters history in this week’s Show and Tell! While filming the Cabin Fever episode in Alaska, Adam made this mechanical device to help him pass the time out of, among other things, coat hanger wire! This piece is a love letter to that versatile material and its many offbeat uses. And thanks to Kari Byron for leaving Adam the coat hangers so he could sculpt with them!

  1. I looked for a wire coat hanger.

    Can you believe it!?!? My wife is mis-using all the wire coat hangers in the house. She is using them to hold coats in the closet. 🙁

    I have to go out and buy some and hide them in my shop.

  2. I loved that episode of MythBusters and I’m so happy you kept the sculpture. Thanks for sharing and thanks for giving us something to look forward to during this stay at home time. I look forward to what is coming next. And can’t wait until tomorrow.
