You know I want to inspire you, but entertaining you is a close second on my list. And sometimes, an idea turns into something less like a project and more like something… else. Weird stuff in the best possible sense, of course.
Some of these videos started as projects that took a twist for the worse, while others were hatches as an entertaining piece without any project attached to it from the start.
Check them out and let me know what you think about the weird stuff!
First off, this is not one of my usual projects, and not a completely serious one, either. It has been fueled on the one hand by having found this trouser hanger and wanting to use it for something, and on the other hand by the Apocalypse Preparedness contest over on… Continue Reading Anti-Zombie-Crossbow from a Trouser Hanger
There is not much to say about this one. I just had to do this. I wish I had gotten around to it sooner because now I had to rush things a little. But that means my next songs will be even better, right? And if that does not scare… Continue Reading The 2014 Christmas Song (You have been Warned!)

And with Halloween coming I thought I would take the chance to inspire fear and awe alike with my rendition of Amazing Grain (loosely based on Amazing Grace). I guess you can call this my Halloween… Continue Reading Amazing Grain – Warning, may contain Singing!

For Summer’s Woodworking’s 2×4 competition, there was the Trash Talk. That was loads of fun, but for the Whirligig Wars, I did not feel it would fit, especially not with the involvement of the Make-a-Wish foundation. Or like I said, maybe I am just getting old. Instead, here is a… Continue Reading Whirligig Wars 2014 – Tooby’s Poem
A Royal Decree? Yes. No explanation necessary, because that would be beyond the scope of the usual blog post. Also, let’s see who can spot the most woodworking references before checking out the commented transcript further down! Enjoy, and remember to Be Inspired!
Hopefully my last installment of the time-honed tradition of 2×4 contest trash talk, I am hashing out some artistic differences with my fellow 2×4, Tooby. I hope this will be the last you see of me doing something other than actually woodworking, not only because I need to recuperate from this… Continue Reading 2×4 contest – Tooby and I
