coin flask

Coin Flask – piggy bank on the lathe

I made this coin flask for a friend – and in a hurry. I hope it does not show on the finished product, but there are a couple of things that I would have done differently if I had thought I had more time. Thing is, without that deadline I might not have ever started this project. Let me know what you think, and remember to Be Inspired!

Peanut bowl

Peanut-bowl from Cloth

In this video, I use a technique that is for all I can tell ancient to make a peanut bowl – in the shape of a peanut! There are certainly other ways to do that, but few are as simple or as versatile than what I show you. Also, let’s not forget the elephant in the room…

“Forge” a Plastic Knife

When I recently tested a blacksmithing technique on a piece of plastic cutting board. I had the idea to tick something else off my list. Something that had been on there for ages.

Simple Boom Arm for your Equipment

This boom arm is a great addition to any shop! It is easy to make from scrap pieces, preferably plywood (but you can get away with virtually any kind of wood if you adapt the dimensions a little). Have things within reach without cluttering up your workspace with stands or such.

Chaos Vase inspired by Kyle

If you have not seen the Chaos Vase that Kyle Toth made (as his 98th vase, no less), you should probably wait with it until after you watched my video making very roughly the same thing. Just with less awesome to it. My wife subtly expressed her liking for this piece, so it was more than obvious what I had to make for her. But apart from the whole “happy wife, happy life” thing, I learned a lot making this – and I hope you can, too!
