Build A Flash-Bang Gun

03-31-2012 11:53 PM by Todd A. Clippinger | 31 comments »

The grandkids love coming to the workshop and building all sorts of projects. One of the most popular projects is a flash-bang gun which captures the imagination of the kids and produces an amazing effect. In this episode of the American Craftsman Workshop I will show you how to build a flash-bang gun. Then, to show how well they work, I have a backyard shootout with 2 of our grandkids, Olivia and Cole. Hope you enjoy, Todd A. Clippinger Share the Love~Share the Knowledge

shotgun #4: The result

07-19-2009 02:10 AM by kolwdwrkr | 4 comments »

I finally am at the end of this project. It took quite a bit longer then my initial thoughts, which was to just throw something together and call it a day. LOL. So a 5 hour project turned into 15 and I have to say that I’m glad that I took the leap. This gun turned into a cool little project and it requires a lot of different techniques. This gun was made out of 4/4 solid beech. I got to do the things I love. Turning, shaping, carving, and finishing. I had to do the cut out with a...

shotgun #3: second part of the carving

shotgun #2: moving forward

07-06-2009 03:48 AM by kolwdwrkr | 11 comments »

But the reason I decided to move forward is because #1 I don’t think there is a toy gun as detailed as this will be, #2 I enjoy carving and it’s a good experience, and #3 maybe people will see it and either order one, or maybe even ask me to carve their real rifle. We will see if that works out. No matter what this kid is getting a very cool ...

shotgun #1: This is my rifle, this is my gun............

07-04-2009 08:35 PM by kolwdwrkr | 8 comments »

After making the pistola I decided that perhaps he needed a rifle. Who knows maybe I’m starting his own gun collection for him ;^) I saw a picture online of a wooden shotgun, printed it up for referance, and then made my own version. I decided to search for real shotguns as well, so that It can be more authentic. I’m not sure if I was successfull with the authenticity part, but it sure is better then the wooden one online. LOL. Of course those projects are made for speed, my p...
