Holiday Project: Part 1: The GlueUp

This covers ripping apart pallets, learning to deal with the hand plane, cutting, and the glue up portion of the project. You can probably guess what it’s going to be by the end, but we’re keeping it kind of quiet since recipients may see these videos. I’ll spell it out completely after the holidays.

Making of a Mallet – A Fail Story (Video)

ali makes a mallet

I attempted to make my first tool recently, but it didn’t go as I’d planned. That’s okay though because I learned a lot from the experience, and I discovered that this is something that I really want to keep pursuing. I found the experience to be relaxing in spite of set backs. I have so many ideas that I want to try. Most likely I will do this again in the not too distant future with either a different kind of wood or else I might try my hand at gluing something up and learning more techniques. 10/10 will do again.
