Just a quick tip for all the extra magnets you have lying around the shop. Use them to stick all your adjustment tools to the sides of the tool they belong to for easy access and quick adjustment.

I want to do some experiments that involve testing the refraction of various solutions, so I needed a hollow acrylic prism. Rather than buy one I figured why not make one. This was made from a scrap of 1/16th acrylic and solvent welded with Dichloromethane. The plug was made from a standard hockey puck. The video at the end was of the prism filled with plain water but different liquids would produce different results.

Hammered out a copper pipe coupler to make a custom bottle opener. I was afraid the copper would be too soft, but it was sufficiently work hardened during the forming.

Made a quick carving mallet from an old oak (I think) branch my mom brought over years ago. This is for my buddy Dominic Benders ( “Challenge Tree 2017”.

The announcement video is here:

The official playlist is here:

Wife asked for a quick coat hanger for my son’s room, thought it would be a fun opportunity to try carving, this was done super fast (about 1 hour from start to finish in a single take) I just wanted to see what would happen if a total amateur tried speed carving something. it’s far from perfect but for my first carving I’m actually pretty happy with how it came out.
