Elkins D.I.Y.
Welcome to my website!

My name is Paul Elkins. I am a designer, inventor and prototype builder. I also enjoy occational sculpting and art in a multiple of mediums, but this website is mostly geared toward showcasing my designs and prototype builds.

My philosophy in design is minimalism and simplicity.

My main subject interests are Alternative Transportation, Boats, Shelters and Survival Gear to name just a few.

The images above illustrate most of the prototypes I've created so far.

Click on any image to enlarge the picture. Left and Right arrows will appear so you can scroll through the gallery.

Click on the MENU above for more detailed information on all of my builds and art work.

Click on the YouTube link to see these items being built and tested out.

If you're interested in building something of mine, I offer some build plans in PDF form. Just clicking the Plans tab.

Also, click on the Your Projects tab to see what other people have been building using my plans.

You may notice there are no pesky Commercial adds to get in your way. This is my way of thanking and giving back to all those folks who shared their ideas on the internet, YouTube, in books, magazines and the people who've shared their ideas with me face to face.

If before you leave, you get a little idea or inspiration, my mission is complete. Just remember to pass on your knowledge.

Thanks for stopping by, and have a GREAT DAY!

Latest Project:

I have many boats, but on this day I wanted a challenge.

Why not a Driftwood Raft.
