Using Lead in a Mallet and Metalworking Tools
In my latest Darbin Orvar video I had such a good time working with the lead and making the mallets. A couple comments suggested a lathe might be a good idea for the carvers mallet, so I am thinking about that. The whole project just got me thinking about metal working and how I want to integrate it more into my projects.
So the first thing that struck me was how I need to rearrange a little in my shop. I need a place to work metal a bit. A sturdy table, a lot like my band saw table, maybe a little longer. Basically enough to fit a drill press, some metal hammers and a small metal vise.
Generally, as soon as you start rearranging the place, adding new tables and such, you realize you end up throwing everything into a messy state. I have a lot of plans for my shop, and the size of it always seems to come up. Small is good, because it forces you to think about space carefully, but it is also a little annoying.
In my last post I talked about viral videos, remember dancing Groot? Well, suffice it to say, it definitely did not go viral, Steve and Tim where right about that one! I am not sure we can draw any firm conclusions, except maybe that anyone banking on income from viral videos is likely to be in the poor-house!
Coming soon is a new video that is a little different. Stay tuned....
Thanks for watching, I'll see you soon with a new topic.
