Cool Tools of Doom: 1:09 on Vimeo.

The SolidSmack Cool Tools of Doom n’ Stuff is GO. This video is a sub-5 minute feature of some of the coolest finds we’ve discovered on the web.

This week look at:

DESIGN
Design Addict Radar – Have a hankering for vintage design furniture? Design Addicts’ Design Radar is just the place you’re looking for. Search by designer, period or piece. Chairs and much more at designaddict.com.
Bellroy Travel Wallet – If you’re a man who loves to travel, you need a good wallet. A travel wallet, like the Bellroy. Holds passports, cash, tickets, cards and a travel pen. Find it at Bellroy for $120.

APPS
Hipmunk – And for booking that travel, putting your new wallet to good use, there’s Hipmunk. Super slick, easiest app I’ve used to book flights. On iTunes, Android and the web, free!
Tab Stacker – Have you been looking for a better way to organize your Chrome Browser tabs? There’s got to be a better way right? Well, fortunately there’s Tab Stacker. Pin, shift and auto-prioritize those tabs. Find it in the Google Web Store.

DIY
PLY90 Bracket – I can build a set of shelves no problem. But I am loving this solution from Micah Black. The PLY90 is a simple bracket to construct a variety of objects. Missed its Kickstarter goal, but watch for more or… create your own.
World’s best writing pen – Love those fancy Mont Blanc pens, but not the $200 price tag? This video shows you how to mod a $12 refill to fit a Pilot G2. I’m all over that! Thanks Eric!

ROCK AWESOMENESS
Squirrel stew – Why does eating squirrel make sense? Tasty and plentiful! This article in the Chicago Reader goes into great detail. Too much maybe, but you’ll never wonder again.
Fine campfire dining – And speaking of foods fit for the campfire, what else can you add to the feast? Cake baked in orange rind, Fondue s’mores. So good! See this article from Chow for more.
