Gift Ideas

Cribbage is one of those “old people” games that I never gave much thought about playing… That is until I actually played it, and surprise surprise, it’s a very fun game! I had this gnarly scrap chunk of rough walnut that was the perfect size and destined to become a board. When it comes to making the board there isn’t really that much to it, it’s obviously a lot of holes in a piece…

MINECRAFT PICKAXE

A few years ago before all of the Minecraft pixel builds took off and before I really started posting to my YouTube channel I had made my daughter wooden Pixel Pickaxe and posted it on Reddit, It was by far the most popular thing I Have posted on Reddit to date, and so I decided to rebuild it, but this time as a two-part series I will also be making a Pixel Sword that you can see here on YouTube.

Walnut and Maple Spinning top made on the wood lathe.

In the fall I had wanted to do some turning but didn’t want to do anything too big so I tried my hand ay making some Wooden Tops. I watched an awesome video from Worth Effort that really helped me get this down, as you can tell by the thumbnail, I made a few 🙂

MODERN CHESS SET

I originally thought of turning these on the lathe but quickly gave up on that plan, as I lack the skills to do so. But I am a huge fan of modern art and minimalist objects. And started to do some research and eventually came across a set created by Lanier Graham in 1966 and fell in love with its simplicity and really enjoyed how all of the pieces fit in a tiny little box.
