Some decorative pliers, each made from a solid piece of basswood, they open and close.
I found this idea somewhere online, cannot seem to remember the name of the guy who’s usually associated with the design though.

Huh. From a single solid piece? Interesting. This reminds me of the ball trapped in a cage thing that people do. Neat!

Look at the Warther Museum site. You will be blown away by the the carvings of Mooney Warther. He did the original of this type plier carving but the the most awesome is a carving of 511 pliers carved from one block of wood and all interconnected and functional. Check out his scale train carvings also. If you are ever in the Eastern Ohio area go to the museum at Dover. One of the most amazing places I have ever been.

Jacob – I do believe the guy associated with this design is André Roubo. See his folding bookstand presented here by Roy Underhill:

OH yes that’s the guy I was looking for, he has a video of him making a working set of pliers in like no time, and that inspired me to make a couple too (tho it takes me more like 15 minutes to make one)

Yeah Roubo’s stuff is really cool too, but not the guy I was thinking about – Thanks nonetheless!
