Mike Warren is the Play editor at Instructables. Nearly an architect by training, he makes tasty, dangerous, and fun things... sometimes all at once! He destroyed a microwave to determine if it could be used to melt metal. (It worked. Mostly.) He has spray painted dinosaurs with a spray can he made himself, brewed a potent pot of coffee using energy drinks and other legal stimulants, and deconstructed a pair of high heels to add dinosaurs to them.
