Uri Tuchman

We’ve seen a few different videos on making hammers, mallets, and all sorts of thumpinwhackers, but this video from Uri Tuchman sets the bar a little higher by adding the element of engraving to ornately personalize that persuasion tool that most everyone carries in their toolbox… I really want to make one of these.

The combination square is regarded by most as an essential tool for woodworking regardless of skill level. The options for combination squares range from cheap off brand squares you can pick up from your local big box store to high-end precision tools ready to use straight off the shelf. If you don’t have $300 to shell out for a top-of-the-line combination square, this video demonstrates how to hone the more affordable versions for a fully functional precision tool.

I can’t quite put my finger on why I found this video so interesting ;) Epoxy resin art has taken the world by storm, and with so many applications for this great medium, we are still only scratching the surface of the creative ways to utilize this medium. In this video, jedrek29t shows a simple way to cast a finger in epoxy resin and maintain the really fine details.

Grilling tools are a right of passage for many people. At some point the responsibility of serving up some perfectly grilled steaks, burgers, and dogs is passed down and you need the right tools to get the job done. You could pull out the set you got for Father’s Day, or you could really assert yourself as the grill master by pulling out your own set of hand forged tools like these from Alec Steel.

Carl Jacobson

If you have used a wire burning kit in your woodturning, you are probably familiar with the inconvenience of changing wires when one breaks or you need a thicker/thinner wire to add that extra detail to your project. This new kit from Easy Wood Tools and Carl Jacobson answers that inconvenience with a simple innovation to keep you efficiently working on your projects rather than setting up your tools.

JPayne Woodworking

I love upcycling old furniture and things that might just be thrown away once it has finished serving its purpose. This Galactic Honeycomb Floating Computer Stand was upcycled from a $5 table. JPayne Woodworking takes you through the process of designing and executing this great CNC, epoxy, upcycling project for a finished product of intergalactic proportions.
