Cabin Porn is a site dedicated to the coolest most inspirational cabins in the world. I dare you to visit their site and not get stuck for hours browsing the hundreds of cabins submitted by their on line community. They are now putting together a book aptly named, Cabin Porn ($TBA) which will be a compilation of some of their best stuff. The book isn't on sale right now, but you can sign up for the waiting list.
THE DUDE ABIDES...AND NOW YOU CAN TOO! If you are seeking salvation from what this uptight, stressed out world is throwing at you there is only one man to seek guidance from; the Dude. The Abide Guide ($11), much like The Big Lebowski himself, is funny, profound and above all helpful. It is a survival guide strait from those who founded the Church of the Latter-Day Dude and they, along with their top disciples, show the way to becoming almost as Dude-like as the Dude himself. Learn the ethos on which this church is based and next time life decides to chuck as gutterball at you stop, pick up this book, and see what the Dude would do.
The Jerry Can Hip Flask ($21) plays on the timelessness of the iconic Jerry Can. Jerry cans are usually seen on the back of jeeps to hold fuel or water for long or off-road trips. This Jerry Can can be used to hold water, but is really made for a different kind of fuel. It's made entirely of 18/8 stainless steel, holds about 6 ounces of liquor and comes in at 4"x2.75"x1.25". The Jerry Can Hip Flask is one of the strongest flasks you'll find and easily slips in your pocket so you can take it anywhere.
The Twist Bullet Pencil ($32+) comes from the same folks who brought us the absolutely beautiful Metal Shop Twist Opener ($65) and the ever so manly Brass Cigar Stand With Ashtray ($165). The Metal Shop is now running a Kickstarter campaign to introduce their latest product. The Twist Bullet Pencil is a modern take on an icon form the 1940's and '50s. Just take your pencil and screw it into the bullet, and insert the bullet into the tube. Now you have a wonderfully crafted full length pencil. The Twist Pencil is CNC machined from 6061 aluminum and comes with either an aluminum or brass tip. Other options are also available with this campaign including a pen attachment to make your Twist a dual threat. These guys make amazing products so these are sure to be a big hit. One catch, you only have two days left to support their campaign, so act quickly.
We love things that are made to last and the Seamless & Steadfast Enamel Steel Plates by Best Made ($35) are the best enamelware on the market. Each plate is baked using World War Two ear machinery. You get a seamless finish on a heavy steel plate. The edges which get the most wear have been reinforced with double the enamel. Plates come in packs of two for $35 or $90 for a pack of six.
The 80-Hour Rope Candle by Candle By The Hour - Vertical ($30) is uniquely designed and will set the mood for any room. The candle works by pulling the beeswax coil through the spring loaded clip in increments of 3 inches. Every 3 inches will burn approximately one hour and once the flame reaches the clip it will self-extinguish. It's made from 100% beeswax and is also available in a Horizontal Stand ($35).
