Also, thank you to those who send me links through the week when you find something really interesting.


The AMMO NYC channel is all about car care and detailing. The level at which he takes his detailing is insane…way over my car care standards but it’s great to see a guy at the top of his field regardless of what that field is. It’s also great to see what “ultimate” means for other guys.

This isn’t a detailed build video but there a quite a few great ideas with this bench design. Definitely worth taking a look at. I can see these being beneficial for family get together as well.

I believe I shared this one previously but I stumbled upon it once again and once again was amazed at not only how versatile the skew chisel is but also the great instruction from Allan Batty. I could listen to that guy talk shop all day long.

VR Sketch

Virtual reality Sketchup? Hmmmmm…… I’m not sure how I feel about this. I’m pretty proficient with a mouse and keyboard but this is definitely interesting. Maybe not for me but the more we push technology the more advancements we can make for everyone. Pretty soon we will be asking Alexa to design our next projects :)

Disregarding the negative aspect of war, this bomber plane is incredible. It’s crazy to think that this plane was first introduced in May of 1944. I grew up with the computer revolution and its often times hard for me to imagine all of the time and effort that went into designing not only the aircraft itself but all of it’s systems and components. No AutoCAD or Solidworks. Just paper and calculations…

I Build It

I often get asked why I used Baltic birch for my miter saw station. I didn’t. I used cabinet grade birch with 5 internal poplar cores. Baltic birch is an entire level of its own. Great quality stuff. Here’s a good conversation about it and Russian birch.

This is a pretty handy quick tip to know. I’ve always used screws in the end of a caulk tube to make them last longer. Not anymore…

This is something I’ve been thinking about for a while. It’s great to not only see someone else make one but to make it to a high standard.

Last week I shared an automated fence for the table saw. You all provided mixed reactions. How about this one….a bluetooth miter saw stop block. Check it out. (click the image to learn more)

I love how these shapes were created from negative space. I can see this being a really awesome bedroom for a kid……or me :)
