First off I want to Thank Villiage Wood for the idea. I saw his and had to have one. Mine is some scrap Oak with some 8” x 1” Dowels. Thanks for looking!

I find it interesting how differently people perceive what is humorous

Does this represent a bomb that’s just used for hunting food for your family? Or maybe one that represents an IED that blows off the legs of one of our soldiers?

I don’t get it

I will – WILL – make one of these one day.

How did you do the recessed ends on the sticks? That’s a real nice detail its predecessors haven’t had.

Oh, I guess I can see the hole from the point on a forstner bit if I zoom in. If it’s that easy, I really have no excuse for not building mine.

Yes, very cool indeed!

I too, wonder what would happen if you try to ship it to someone…. I want to make something similar for some people but would have to ship. Keep thinking it would cause problems.

I drilled in with a 3/4 fostner bit. Then rounded the ends a bit with a disk sander.

I would be terrified to have something this realistic looking in my house—even if I made it and knew it was fake, my heart would jump everytime I saw it.
