Interesting Stuff From Around The Web #240 – April 6, 2019

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.

Jackman Works

This year, April Fools Day brought out some of our greatest jokes and oddities in the woodworking community videos. This video from Jackman Works was no exception. There are some funny spots throughout the video that I won’t spoil for you, but the finished project is no joke and actually nicely detailed.

The S

***Note*** Don’t try this at home. I wanted to end this week with a bang, and this match canon does not disappoint. The meticulous attention to detail in gluing up all 50,000 matches is definitely worth the functioning finished product. Only thing is, you better have the camera rolling because it can only be fired once..

  2. Jay,

    I really enjoy ISFATW. I have learned so much from this collection of interesting finds, and have quite a few channel that subscribed to that I may have not known about otherwise.

    Thanks for your efforts in getting these compilations out to us!
