    Martial arts display and weapons rack : random dave
    I've seen "belt racks" out there at every martial arts show that only hold the belts in a Chinese pillar and beam style. They don't hold all of the belts, much less any weapons or trophy and plaque space. This was built all spur of the moment using those as a design cue, but with attention and requirements to hold all of their chosen weapons that they're trained with and any awards they get in the same location.
     As each martial artist will eventually train with different weapons of different sizes, their needs for a flexible mounting system of various sized items are required. 
     My son, as you can see uses nunchucks, staves, sais, knives, bows, swords and kamas and has multiple styles of many of them.
     My wife (wall hanging one) uses Kama, bostaff, swords and nunchucks only.

    Wine bottle kitchen shelf : random dave
    Don't know why it didn't have the materials list, I remember putting it down before. Fixed now.

    Duel Gaming Console Self (Under Construction)
    From experience I can tell you, you will have overheating and failure problems without some ventilation coming though. May I suggest a couple USB fans drawing air through the front, out the back? They would turn on with the system and keep a supply of fresh and cool air flowing to the machines. I've replaced both the xbox and the ps3/4's because of a lack of airflow. It took about 6 months for the 3 and xbox to die about a year for the 4.

    Cut bottle wall light : random dave
    Well, I've made bottle table lamps for a while, and I've made wall vases for flowers, I wanted to push my creativity as far as I can. I'll be refining this Idea further with wall sconces on existing light outlets eventually.
     And I just so happened to buy a tile saw that needed a project or three while getting used to it for a tile job.

    Shadow box from dresser drawer
    Thank you! He joins the Marines in June, and as he was packing up various stuff this became a project to make rather than giving them away. Hopefully he will use it to store his medals and ribbons in when he retires!
