My Current Favorite Diy Kilt Pin

Recommended Posts

I love making things myself, though I'm not always to the level that I would like in quality and craftsmanship I forge ahead anyway!

This is one such example of my crazy DIY skills

First I took a Lego bagpiper minifigure, scrounged a couple lead fishing weights and squashed em in a pair of pliers so they would fit in the legs to ballast him so he wouldn't spin around on my kilt, next I epoxied the lead in place and with a few dabs here and there to lock his arms and whatnot in place so I wouldn't lose any bits as I travel. Lastly I epoxied a thumbtack to his back and did some knurling with the pliers to give more bite to the pin clasp.

Here he is off-kilt for detail pics, tomorrow I will get a pic back in place on my kilt.

He's pretty cool. Had the spins before I added the lead to the feet.

Too bad none of my daughters played with Lego's or I'd be tempted to try to make one myself.

Looks cool bro.
