Projects

A collection of projects that you can tackle over a day or two. They vary from simple pencil holders to more complicated puzzles.

A few years ago I purchased some really cheap clock movements, and while on lockdown I was cleaning up the shop and came across them. I started off by finding a suitable scrap of walnut, but you can use anything you like. I cleaned up the edges on the table saw leaving some room for final dimensions later. My clock arms were about 80mm long, giving me a diameter of 160mm. I added enough…

A toilet paper tower made out of scrap pine wood.

I think by now, we all know about the “trying times” and our lives have been inconvenienced more than we had anticipated. I know mine has!

I wanted to build something that was a little bit of a joke, as many people are still having trouble finding Toilet paper. I thought to my self, what is everyone doing with their stockpiled toilet paper?

So I made a Toiler paper Tower, something to hold and organize your Toilet Paper while still.

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.

Bees Wax candle made with a wooden wick.

I want to first start off by saying this was an experiment, One of those moments where you see something and think. How hard could that be? Well, this was harder than I thought.

Let’s start off by creating the wooden wick when I did my research for this project I read that using softwood or hardwood didn’t matter, I also saw that some people soaked their wicks in olive oil. More on that later.
