Another soothing YouTube channel

Well, yes, the video above is particularly amusing. It made the rounds on Twitter yesterday He cuts a copy of Spare into little strips and uses them to make a beautiful…no, go see it for yourself.

The channel is David’s Woodturning and it’s really interesting. Glad I found it. He uses a lot of epoxy resins (and dyes and glitter) so that he can make gnarly chunks of driftwood and burl into something he can work on a lathe.

The resin appears to be pressure-cured somehow – he puts the unfinished bits in some kind of steel vessel with a pressure gauge for several days.

If you’re interested in his methods, he does talk through his project. If, however, you want a soothing meditative experience, I recommend you turn the sound off and play his videos at 2X speed.

So you’ll have to tell us.

He chopped “Winge” up into little bits and pieces and nailed it to some driftwood and then put varnish all over it?

I’m sure Meghan’s army of harpy lawyers got to him.

@Armybrat – LavenderGirl won with Tom Sizemore.

Tom Sizemore deceased.
Can’t remember who had him.

The vid is down but the pressure vessel is likely a vacuum to out-gas the epoxy before it cures to pull the bubbles out.

Lotta work for a waste can, but it is good to have a hobby or two.

It could always be repurposed for “other uses”.

He moved it to a different URL, for some reason. I’ve updated the post.

More effort and care was put into the rubbish bin than the book, I reckon.

(yeah. I'm going to write)

(oooo! you have a website?)

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
