Every month, Boys’ Life magazine gives you a brand-new project to test your skills and creativity.
But we need your ideas!
Use the comment form below to tell us what projects you’d like BL Workshop to tackle.
a model of our solar system/planets would be cool!
you ought to make a way to turn an inexpensive (chainsaw or somthing) engine and a bike into a dirtbike.
Boys life slide of the month. Reprints of the old articles or new ones. The boys in my troop do not know about the old side articles, adn when i bringh out my collection they are excited. I think there could be interest in the boys in scouting if it was revisited.
since we already did native American arrow we should do native American bow or clothing , make your own knife , make your own tomahawk make a power tool
Teach us how to make a no cost soda can stove or grill which is fun for camping and cheap and efficient and a good way to reuse
Maybe A Plane, Train, or automobile.
Maybe a bookshelf or a magazine rack
how about a wooden chest/ keepsake box or a bow and arrow out of a pvc pipe string and a dowel that would be cool.
what about square foot gardening
How about sewing or some sort of craft
show us how to make wooden shields. :D
Teach us how to make a Pillow-Seat, which could basically be 2-3 pillow cases with beads, marbles, or something that can fill space, like smaller pillows, taped, clipped, or glued together.
Do a fish tail rubber band bracelet. Everyone at school is always asking me to make them one.
Snap swivel fishing bracelet
A paracord survival bracelet
Native American Headdress
maybe a working indian bow
How about an acual boat? Cause that would be cool.
How about a quill pen and the ink for it, thats one you could even do out doors if you made the ink from charcoal or something.
how to make a green house box to grow plants in the winter
A homemade grappling hook would be nice
How to make your own crab pot out of wire fencing, I have done it plenty of times, and different shapes and sizes are great for an almost free project. I have instructions if anyone wants them
how to wittle a spear
How to make a telegraph
your own floating raft?
I’d like to see a program for the boys to conduct science experiments using legos specifically experimenting with different car designs. They could test weight distribution, aerodynamics, and other characteristics. They they could use that knowledge when building their Pinewood cars.
how about a camp stove?
I think a nice survival kit kit would be good. Took wilderness survival mb and it was very fun and easy. Try it. Should help in unexpected situations.
A working bow(as in the case of archery) that you need 50 pounds of pull back weight would be really nice(<:
you should show how to make a superhero cape because i really need one but i dont have money to buy one
use a blanket
Our Troop uses Trunks to go to summer camp. It would be great to see some plans to make some sturdy ones instead of the plastic ones you can buy in stores.
My brother and I like the rubberband propelled balsa wood gliders, except for the fact that they easily break. How can we make a rubberband powered glider that won’t break? We’ve tried to use plastics from the recycle bin, but no luck.
How to make homemade icecream
You should make spinning tops out of old CDs and marbles. :)
Please show how to make a miniature greenhouse
I think book ends would be a fun and usefull project
You should show how to raise crickets.
how to make a paracord bracelet.
The Boy Scouts sells a booklet on Paracord stuff. including bracelets, and other cool things. I purchased one from the scout shop in Portland Oregon.
A birdhouse with lisence plates as the roof would be awesome!
Acctually, my dad does that a TON. He cuts and fits old plates to make it.
I think you guys should show us how to build something that would have sort of a Pedro theme, like a mail bag or a recipe for a green cake or milkshake!
