Cinder Block + Rebar + Wood Plank = Toaster



Adi Zaffran's design is simple but elegant. It's probably dangerous, too. But if you want to create a functional toaster using as few parts as possible, this would be the way to do it.

Beautfull design. Okay it needs some work to make it truly funtional. But its inspired compared to the usual run of the mill crap plastic and metal designs.

If that breezeblock isn't actually designed for use in extreme heat then there's a good chance it will fail catasrophically.

Also what use is a toaster which only toasts on one side?
