Introduction: Zero-emissions Reclaimed Bench

Picture of Zero-emissions Reclaimed Bench

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

Awesome! No electricity, great grandpa would have been proud. Nice sturdy bench. I noticed the quick-grip-clamp-iphone-camera-stand... Brilliant!

oh, and you might like my "hat cam" - i drilled a hole in an old hat and ran a bolt and through it to mount a cheap camera for POV shots ;-)

It turned out really lovely, and I love the challenge of no electricity. Thanks for sharing!

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!
