Looking for a good knife to slash through the fourth wall? Where better to look than your DIY Deadpool knife block? Thanks to Britt Michelsen (a.k.a. BrittLiv), a little 3-D printing and some carefully applied spray paint, you too can have Wade Wilson's head sit on your kitchen counter full of knives, if you're into that sort of thing. With Michelsen's open source 3-D print files and carefully documented process, if you can find yourself a 3-D printer, you'll be done in no time.
Michelsen, a chemical engineer from Hamburg, Germany with a hardcore crafting hobby, is kind of a master at making cool action movie gear you can recreate at home. She's made a talking Darth Vader LED binary clock, hacked a Lego figurine of the Flash into a functional flash drive, and turned an IKEA table into a seemingly gravity-defying structure, printed with, once again, Deadpool's face.

On top of giving you detailed and easy to follow step-by-step instructions on how to make your own Deadpool knife block, Michelsen also walks you through her own creative process, including her failures. Why include steps detailing what not to do too? Michelsen writes, "Usually in my Instructables, I just walk you through the process to repeat what I have made. This Instructable is a bit different. I figured that by not just only sharing the final stl file, but also the process I used to design it and what I learned, this Instructable could benefit others."

So, if you're curious about the journey of a modern crafter, or if you really just want to have a model merc-with-a-mouth sitting on your counter with knives coming out of his head, check out BrittLiv's instructions here.
