    This is the X-wing fighter coffee table built by Barry Shields (previously: the USS Enterprise coffee table he made). I wish I was good at woodcarving. I'm not though, and the last time I even tried sharpening a stick I poked myself in the eye. I did get to wear a cool eyepa... / Continue →

    The Bark Knight, get it? Because trees have bark on them. Growing up in Alabama we called that tree-skin. This is the carved wood Batman sculpture created by artist Thomas Earing, who, based on his name, I'm surprised doesn't dabble in jewelry instead. The Batman carving s... / Continue →

    This is a video of master carver David Warther showing us how to make a pair of wooden pliers out of a small block of wood with only ten cuts. He came up with the design himself through trial and error. Still, watching him work that knife so close to his thumb made me nervous... / Continue →

    This is Tiger Log Cabin's £70,000 (~$113,000) Zombie Fortification Cabin (ZFC-1). That cost is just for the materials though, you have to assemble it yourself though or pay another £13,000 (~$21,000) for them to come do it for you. I suggest letting them do it though. You tr... / Continue →

    This is a video of chainsaw artist Griffon Ramsey carving Guardians of the Galaxy's Groot out of a couple stumps. Of all the things to be carving out of a stump, Groot seems the most appropriate. Followed by totem poles and tiki gods. I've always wanted a giant tiki god carv... / Continue →

    Because who needs human friends, this is a video of a guy playing Jenga with his pal Moe the cat. Moe is pretty good too. At least until he rage-quits and knocks a couple pieces off the top at the end. The best part though is at 0:30 when he gets impatient and knocks one of ... / Continue →

    Least fun trampoline ever. This is a video of a man cutting up a fallen tree, when the tree decides lying down isn't as relaxing as it originally sounded and gets back up. Or maybe jumping on that trampoline wasn't as fun as it thought. You know, when I lived in Virginia I c... / Continue →
