Resting on three separate pedestals are the various materials required to create three types of IED (Improvised Explosive Device): the pressure-cooker bomb, the pipe bomb, and the Molotov cocktail.  The materials were all purchased at hardware and department stores locally, while the ingredient list was determined through online research.
