    Default Something Fun

    I've been watching this series on YouTube. Don't know the back story, but the videos are amusing and the carpentry FU level is very high.

    I’ve been watching a ton of videos lately too and it’s way better than reading peoples’ bickerings about dysfunctional politicians.

    I love the videos of people restoring old mechanical devices, sometimes neglected for decades.

    I'm mesmerized by the ingenuity it takes to produce something so complex while working with simple tools. I could watch that stuff all day.

    How about a bridge without nails (though he does use an electric planer)?

    A little more 'modern' but relaxing to watch...


    Enjoy the design and skill that goes into the pieces.

    That guy has crazy skills. Thanks.

    In a somewhat similar vein, I enjoy vids like this one. One highlight is from around 7:30 to 11 where she makes a very cool piece to hold her pot over a fire.

    Eat one live toad first thing in the morning and nothing worse will happen to you all day.

    Wow...wait a minute, time lapse video, posted to you tube. Come on, just behind the camera there's this huge wood shop with every tool you could imagine...but I hope not. Just the skeptic in me these days.
    Thanks though. Very cool.

    I found this at the end of Jorn's video above:



    It's an hour and a half of two years in northern Canada. I got sucked in for half of it. Stunning video work, beautiful place, and amazing what some folks can do.

    Joinery is incredible. And the best tool in that video is the little hammer. Such a great sound from that thing.

    Great stuff.

    I've been following a couple of guys in western Mass who are building a (large) wooden boat. Channel is Acorn to Arabella

    I think "Something Fun" should be its own sub-forum given how Something Unfun has seeped into the others.

    This video is just kooky.

    Good idea on the Something Fun sub-forum.

    I can't even comprehend the vision that went into making that guitar. Vacuum dying toothpicks made from popsicle sticks. OY!

    That guitar is a work of art.
    It reminds me of all the crazy things I see done with laminations. ...like the ply wood challenge.

    Here's one:
