Interesting Stuff From Around The Web #127 – April 30, 2016

Every week I like to share a few things I find interesting. Mostly video content with an occasional website article. All of the content you will find in these posts is free to you. Remember that liking, subscribing, or sharing free content goes a long way in helping produce more free content. If you like that creator’s work, share it! Also, thank you to those who send me links through the week when you find something really interesting.

Ty Moser is they guy behind the MonoLoco Workshop. In this article and video he shows you some simple ways to inlay metal into wood to either strengthen a joint or just make something look better. (click the image)

Walter Sorrells

An introduction to knife making. Woodworking and metal working are so close these days. Interested in making a knife? Check this out first.

Stone and Sons Workshop

Woodworking is a very rewarding hobby. Even more rewarding when you can share it with someone else. Be sure to take advantage of the situation the next time you have the opportunity to introduce woodworking to someone else. Here Shawn shows Lainey how to make a sliding lid pencil box.


If you’ve got an hour to kill be sure to watch this. Even if you don’t have a lathe Allan Batty’s demonstration of the skew chisel is incredible. Very good presentation of the tool.

Dread Knot Woodshop

I had the opportunity to meet Darryl in Atlanta at The Woodworking Show. Here’s a pretty convenient tip about extending parallel clamps inexpensively.

Barcroft Cars

Another super cool video showing some unique wooden cars.

Bill Schenher

Here’s a good luck at a very versatile carving bench. It doesn’t take up too much space either.

Bryan Sober

This is such a simple idea for a weekend getaway camper. Simple but cozy.

Kirsten Dirksen

I’m not sure about touring the country in this but it would be a really neat way to give the kids their own individual campers for a weekend getaway.

BearKat Wood

This guy’s work is incredible.

Make Something

This could have been a lot worse…

Carl Jacobson

An incredible piece of art from Carl. Well done Carl…well done. I feel like there should be a “slow clap” button on YouTube sometimes.

Kyle Toth

Here’s a great example of not letting your tools limit you.


  1. Jay, I look forward every week to your “Interesting Stuff From Around The Web” as well as your regular shop presentations. Good stuff! Keep it up. Your stuff is my favorite woodworkers site.

  2. David’s video at KenCraft is wild – I remember my old high school shop class garage door had more holes in it than swiss cheese from that type of thing – crazy stuff!

  3. As always, thanks for sharing! I really need to make it here more often than I do, you always have great weekly content!

  4. Thanks for the share Jay, I always look forward to these. Looks like you’re falling down the turning rabbit hole. Hope you enjoy the ride.

  5. A very nice line up as always! Those wooden cars were the most outlandish thing I have ever seen made with wood. Totally Remarkable! Thanks!

  6. Those wooden cars are pretty neat, I wonder how well they would hold up to my Minnesota winters.
