Hi guys!

As i´ve crashed the old nutcracker, i had 2 oppinions: buy a new one or make it for myself.
As i had a few boards at home (already dry), i´ve decided to do it on my own, so i startet cutting some walnutboards on the bandsaw. I had really no idea of the dimensions and the how-it-will-work, i was just working.
See below a clip how it works:
As i´ve finished this small projekt, i can really tell you, that i like the smell of cutting walnut-wood!
So now the Nuts are cracked with a nutcracker made of a piece of wood, which was fallen off the nut-tree in front of our house!

Awesome! I love using walnut limbs. The difference in colour in them is wonderful

-- mesure once. cut twice.. or three times.. then smash it in with a hammer
