Doing It Yourself isn’t always the easiest or cheapest option, but odds are you won’t find anything more satisfying than finishing a DIY project with your own two hands. Each week, we’re going to showcase one cool DIY project tutorial from around the web.

Making things out of spent bullet casings is kind of a pastime of mine, but Igor from Inspire To Make is taking the entire process one step further with his DIY Bullet Casing Headphones. You might be saying to yourself “I feel like I’ve seen something like that before,” and it’s because you have. There are plenty of pairs of earbuds on the market that look like they’re made with bullet casings, but most of them aren’t actual bullet casings. If you want to make your own pair with real bullet casings you’re going to need some tools, materials and soldering skills, but the tutorial on Inspire to Make will walk you through the entire process if you’re daring enough to pull the trigger (had to).

Laguiole-Oyster-Knife-IF2

While you can go all MacGyver and shuck oysters with a screwdriver or other household tool, we highly recommend you invest in a good oyster knife. Why? Well, for starters, it’s safer. The best oyster doesn’t taste so hot when you’ve got something sharp stuck in your palm. Secondly, it makes the process easier and a bit more refined. Laguiole is an iconic name in knife making and the French brand has you covered when it comes to shucking thanks to the Laguiole Oyster Knife. Made of 420 stainless steel and complete with a wood handle, the Oyster Knife measures 6 ¼” and makes easy work of even the toughest shell. You just need to supply the cocktail sauce.
