Air Blow Gun Holder – Quick & Dirty

An air blower gun paired with a compressor in your shop is a great way to remove dust and debris, be it from a workpiece or a workbench. But while the looped hoses that are available offer some advantages, mostly in terms of reach, tidyness is not one of them. Fix that with a simple holder that allows you to put the loops in their place. And on top of that this can be made from scraps and in very little time. Enjoy, and remember to be Inspired!

Plants vs. Zombies inspired Garden Gnomes

You probably know that I love the Plants vs. Zombies games, and so it might not come as a surprise that I wanted to make something based on them. After a long wait, the time has finally come – garden gnomes that are also plants! And not gnomes at all. Let me know what you think! Also, please share it with anyone you know who has a Zombie infestation in their back yard. Enjoy, and remember to be Inspired!

Traffic Awareness Standee

Want to get rid of some old boards while making the world a better place? Make a traffic awareness standee to remind drivers to watch out for playing kids. Also, I made this in collaboration with Skil Tools, using the Combisaw in exchange for the tool. Let me know what you think, enjoy, and remember to be Inspired!

Challenge Tree 2016 – The Final Results!

It has taken me way longer than expected to wrap the Challenge Tree up and get the drawing going, but I have to firmly believe that it was worth the wait. Thanks again to all those who participated and inspired, and of course also to the sponsors whose prizes might not make this possible as such but sure make it a lot more fun to to.

If you happen to be a winner I will get in touch with you to sort things out, and if not, there might still be next year. And I do hope that there was fun to be had this time around, too. So enjoy, and remember to be Inspired!

14 Ways to make a Tealight Holder – Get Woodworking Week 2016

You probably know that I do enjoy a good tealight holder as much as the next person who is into such a thing. I wanted to see how many ways there are to make the necessary, tealight-shaped indentation, and I believe this video merely scratches the surface. Still, I hope that you can draw inspiration from it. This is also my entry to Get Woodworking Week 2016 if you care for such things. Enjoy, and remember to be Inspired!
