I had no idea where to post this topic. It fits in the workshop safety section; it fits (kinda) in the jigs section, certainly could go in the powertools and hardware section and would be cozy in the lumber section. But alas there is no What the… section. So I decided to post it here.
I was watching a video about a sawmill on Youtube when this “related’ video caught my eye. It was simply entiltled “Lumber Mill From Scratch”. Little did I know I would be riveted for the next hour or so watching this 8 part series with astonishment and wonder.
This guy is amazing. Amazingly good with his hands, amazingly inventive, amazingly dangerous. Im not sure if he is a genius, certifiably insane or a certifiably insane genius. And please, I’m not judging. But please let me know if you dont find his comment in the beggining of part 8 where he says “It doesn’t look too scary” astonishing!
Also in part two there is a very informative section of how to turn your drill press into a lathe. With the help of a sharpened handle of a file.
I’m not saying any more. Watch it for yourself.
