Vise-Jaw Pads

Hi everyone! So, I’ve had a bit of a hectic summer, but I’m back! …Well, not for long, but while I’m feeling motivated, how’s about a tutorial, hmm? This project was inspired by those rubber vise-jaw pads that you see online. You know the ones. They’re yellow and fit over the top, and they prevent your workpiece […]

Sometimes I confuse even myself. So without further ado, let’s get […]

How to Make a Sheath

In case you hadn’t noticed (in which case you obviously haven’t seen most of the articles on this here blog), I like knives. Especially fixed-blade knives (that is, knives that don’t fold). But a fixed-blade is no good if you can’t toss it in a bag without ruining everything else you put in there. Solution? […]

How to Make Cold-Brew Tea

Hello again! After an entire month of inactivity (mostly due to laziness and Spring Break) I’m back with another food-related article. So, let’s get to it! In my opinion, tea is one of the joys of life. In fact, I love it so much I have a giant thermos flask that can hold almost a […]
