about two years ago i made this bench (and video) out of reclaimed barn wood using only old-fashioned tools and zero electricity just because i felt like it. i was just posting a different vid and i saw the 'hand tools' contest so i figured i'd post this to throw into the contest. thanks! -tim

<p>Awesome! No electricity, great grandpa would have been proud. Nice sturdy bench. I noticed the quick-grip-clamp-iphone-camera-stand... Brilliant! </p>
<p>oh, and you might like my &quot;hat cam&quot; - i drilled a hole in an old hat and ran a bolt and through it to mount a cheap camera for POV shots ;-)</p>
<p>OMG its like a DIY &quot;Go Pro&quot; :) That is sweet! </p>
that particular bench could double as an automobile jackstand! thanks for 'getting it' ;-) -tim
<p>It turned out really lovely, and I love the challenge of no electricity. Thanks for sharing!</p>
<p>thanks for watching! i also have a whole series of vids i did with free wood and inexpensive hand tools. so many of the how-to vids require fancy and expensive stuff; making things is accessible on every budget! </p><p><a href="http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL9-JGqOmsWcrOYinJuEuGSFS7-DGXbdUr" rel="nofollow" style="">http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL9-JGqOmsWcr...</a></p>
