If you have an excess of cat hair laying around (and if you have a cat it’s probably laying around right now…napping…so the question is rhetorical) then you can turn that cat hair into something useful. In the video below Switch & Lever turns a ball of fur from your favorite furball into the handle for a knife. The first attempt at the handle was a bit of a flop, which I actually appreciate seeing – the mistakes are just as important as the tips & tricks that are also embedded within the step-by-steps.
If you have a cat this video takes little explaining, you got hair, all over your house, and I understand your plight. Why not do something creative with it instead of just passing it into the trash? Follow along as we transform some precious cat hair into a beautiful knife handle!
NO CATS WERE HURT IN THE PRODUCTION OF THIS VIDEO!!!

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
