This is a post to show progress on the new Doobie mod (2.0) for The Big Lebowski. This is also an interest post, although I have no idea what the final cost will be. I am targeting around $100 USD + ship. Will know more once the ashtray details are hammered out.

The goal is you progress the mod a bit more from the original concept in the following ways:

1. More realistic looking Doobie. This will be hand-rolled using real papers and fake herb.
2. Better lighting. Rather than a harsh blinking of the red/orange LEDs, there will be nice orange steady glow! Note: there is no fire twinkle as in the video since the LED controllers cannot handles the current from TBL (I had to remove them).
3. Physical ashtray to hold the doobie.

UPDATE: Shipping first batch. Video here:

Add me please.

jyeakley I have a suggestion, but you certainly don't have to take it! Instead of the wire hanging out the end of the doobie, if possible have the wire exit just before (or in the middle/bottom?) of it and have a hole in the wooden ashtray for the wire to go through (to hide it)..then route out a channel under the ashtray for the wire to sit in and exit to it's final connection..just a thought, and only a suggestion. I'll take whatever you make!

#8 6 months ago

Yep. The video above is just to show lighting. I am working with the woodworking guy have some cool things coming!

1. More realistic looking Doobie. This will be hand-rolled using real papers and fake herb.
2. Better lighting. Rather than a harsh blinking of the red/orange LEDs, I am introducing inline controllers to give that cherry a steady glow!
3. Real wooden ashtray with laser etched markings.
Wiring and lighting are in place. You can see an example of the lighting in this video:

The Doobie itself still needs ash effect added (coming soon).
I should have an ashtray prototype in the next couple weeks.

Agreed 110%! The problem with the original (and this new version which is an improvement) is the wire hanging out the back. Completely ruins the look. The suggestion above is A MUST!!
