Building a real life/working Shishkebab (fire sword) from Fallout 4 – Day 5

Day 5 of building a real life version of the Shishkebab (fire sword weapon) with Caleb Kraft of MAKE! The Shishkebab is complete, and we decide to have some fun by building a PipBoy in an hour! We also do some work on the set (background) for the Shishkebab release video. The PipBoy was built from mostly scrap plastic – a potato chip canister, a food storage container, some paint, and a few little bits of random plastic, wood, and metal to create the buttons.
