When you have access to CNC machines and the skill to use them, you can make darned near anything–even things that don’t really exist.  Art is the purest expression of this notion, and I have admired the Steampunk Ray Gun artwork of Jeff de Boer for a long time.

An article in MAKEzine first got me to notice his “Atomic Dueling Pistols:”


Atomic Duelling Pistols by Jeff de Boer…

Jeff’s got a few more neat examples like this one in his “Space Stuff” Gallery:


Ray Derringer, by Jeff de Boer.  Even the presentation case is fanciful…


Zappo, by Jeff de Boer.  Note the neat engine turned sheet metal case…

I don’t know if they’re “Steampunk” (Jeff says they are) or just the sort of straight up Pulp Science Fiction I grew up reading, but they sure are cool!
