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.

Bullets and resin… Need I say more? Nick shows a creative way to upcycle expended brass shell casings in this video, and I don’t know if there is a “perfect” Father’s Day gift, but it beats another necktie.

Why open your favorite glass bottled beverages with an old bottle opener, or myriad of other opening “techniques”/tools when you can send those caps flying Medieval style? Check out this Catapult style bottle opener and add something extra to your glass bottle beverage drinking experience. You could probably think of some interesting games/contest applications for it as well.

Timothy Wilmots

Using sawdust, shavings, and curls as a fire starter is certainly not a new concept. However, Timothy Wilmots steps it up a notch in this video with his application for the byproduct of everyone’s favorite hobby. He’s not just starting fires, but in this video he shows how he actually uses the sawdust from his dust collector to heat his entire shop!
