Turning a Simple Carvers Mallet from Spalted Beech

This time I’m making a carvers mallet from spalted beech wood on the lathe. The simple shape is ideal when working with different carving chisels while it is also a great exercise in woodturning. The total length is about 10″ (250mm) and the head is 3″ (75mm) wide on the largest part. I used Boiled linseed oil for a finish as i do on all my wooden tools.

Simple Kindling Splitter from Scrap Materials / Beginner Welding Project

Splitting firewood can be dangerous sometimes because your hands are close to the blade especially in the winter when you’re using gloves or even when dealing with hard logs.

To make my life easier I made this kindling splitter from scrap materials I had leftover from other projects and some salvaged fence parts. the diameter of the rings is 20cm so you could use it also for splitting smaller logs.

This simple project requires just a welder and an angle grinder it is also ideal for someone who wants to practice welding because of the variety of welds.

Carving a Wooden Cup

This time I try Carving a wooden cup from dry Spalted Beech! It is a cut off from a slab that i had laying around. Although the wood is quite hard to carve i had so much fun doing it. I soaked the finished cup for a couple of hours in RAW Linseed oil and wiped it off afterward, I let it dry for 3 days. Pure linseed oil is a food-safe finish and it works perfectly to seal up the end grain and prevent the cup from leaking. You can find all the carving tools I used in this video down below!

Wall Cabinet with Circuit Board Door and LED lights

I use a Computer PCB and some 12mm plywood to make a small wall cabinet to hold my camera gear. The circuit board is backlit with an LED strip which makes for a great looking ambient light.

Folding Plasma Table for my Welding Cart

Since I Acquired a plasma cutter recently it would be time to make a plasma cutting table for my multifunctional welding cart wich has already a folding welding table attached to it. But you can just weld on two more legs and use it as a separate table.

I took the same design and welded in some 30x3mm flat bars that are curved( the curves support the workpiece when you cut straight lines) And made a hinged pan for catching the sparks and the small offcuts. The legs are height adjustable to accommodate for uneven floors.

Thank you very much for watching!

Making a Floor standing LED Lamp from Scrap Steel

I made this floor standing lamp from a steel scrap that I had laying around my shop, this was also the perfect opportunity to try out my new Plasma Cutter which I bought just recently (I put a link to it down below)

I f you would like to make this lamp yourself i’m pretty certain you could do all the cutting with a Jigsaw(with a metal cutting blade) or an angle grinder( just make straight cuts in the square tube instead of the curvy lines.

Thank you very much for watching!

I’m Sorry! I messed up a Diresta Ice Pick… DirestaOfUs #10

There are so many uses for an Ice pick other than picking some Ice! In this video, I’ll try to expand on the usability by adding a permanent marker and some simple measuring marks to it.

This video is a part of the #DIRESTAOFUS video collaboration Started By Brian Lane at Wooden Creationz.

NO ICE PICKS WERE HARMED IN THE MAKING OF THIS VIDEO!

Forging Basic Blacksmiths Tongs | Beginner Blacksmithing Project

This is my First blacksmithing project so if I can do it you can make them too! In total, I used about 300mm of 25mm x 6 mm mild steel flat bar for the forged tongs and about 800mm of the same material for the “stupid” simple ones. Which can be reused for forging new tongs.

For a step by step tutorial please check out John’s video: https://youtu.be/dHrgefJ7NvI

Wastebasket from Plywood with woven pattern / Or is it a Lampshade?

Making a trash can from plywood. Or is it a lampshade? Back in 2016, I made a Twisted plywood lamp from cut up strips of 18mm plywood, at that time I experimented with weaving these thin plywood strips together without any luck. So this time i Make a rubbish bin with the same materials but instead of weaving the strips together I’ll just glue them together in a woven pattern. The glue I’m using is just regular Cyanoacrylate (super glue) glue with an activator which helps the glue to dry quicker.
For finishing, I just use a satin clear spray lacquer. This wastebasket is meant to be used in my office for paper waste. Or should I use it as a lampshade instead?

Thank you very much for watching!
