What a beautiful axe. Thanks for walking us through your mistakes as well as your successes, it's good to learn from your own mistakes but feels better learning from those of other people ;)
In my humble opinion, this is a situation in which trying is not necessary. Wood and metal, in the same way Nylon does, have elastic properties. It's just a matter of finding the right alloy/wood species in the right shape and state. Have you ever seen a spring in a clicker pen ? What was it made of ? Now have you seen a bow ? Was it made out of Nylon ?You can refer to those instructables to get an idea of what I mean, were it not clear enough in my comment:https://www.instructables.com/id/Make-your-own-spr...https://www.instructables.com/id/English-Longbow/
Love the looks of it, essential and simple. KudosGreat write-up too
Wow, smart technique and beautiful outcomeThanks for sharing
Neat ! Now you can use it as a heater by running hot water in the pipes ;)
I wouldn't say that "the only way to make this structure is by 3D printing". You could obtain similar results with other techniques such as shaping from spring metal followed by proper annealing and plastic coating, wood carving, casting...
That about sums up my view of most stuffWhether it works as intended or not, let's scale it up just to make surecool project :)
Hand Carved Sculptural Wooden Bowl
Stunning piece and great worksmanship - what a great piece of wood to work with as wellCongratulations
Self Spinning Gyroscope
What a beautiful object. I favorited it to read all about the principle and making when I have time

How to Make a Wood & Hammered Silver Ring
TS1 modular shelving (with CNC wood threading)
Very neat project, thanks for sharing! I will try to make something similar soon!
A piece of advice if I may - if you clamp your piece between two pieces of scrap wood when drilling your holes (or even just put one piece of scrap wood underneath it where the drill bit comes out) you will avoid splitting and get nice exit holes.

AMazing job and video, love the way you finished the wall around the door! Instantly voted, favorited and subscribed. You gave me a lot of ideas, thanks.
French Cleat Wall & Storage Loft
Beautiful, refined shape. Neat
That's one amazing project. The video was extremely enjoyable to watch, top notch craftsmanship, great choice of music as well. And I learned how to make your own nails. What a day
That's really neat!
Tension Series - Garden Bench
J'ai pas tout lu mais ça envoie! La précision des capteurs est assez impressionante.
I entirely agree with you.
That's a really neat project! I feel like the computin power of the arduino is a tad overkill but hey, I have used a full size arduino to set a timer on a simple on/off 5V to 240V relay in the past ;)
I you really want to make it without fancy tools (I'm assuming that you are not just complaining that the instructions are not here and that you actually plan on making this project), you can easily google "wood carving" and then "aluminium green sand casting" and you're ready to go. The CNC is just a tool here, you can extremely easily make your own substitute tools and get a similar result. Or change the design a little bit and make something new with what tools you have on hand. Or ask the author if he sells them... I'm sure that as a member of this community you have more than enough common sense and gumption to tackle this recurring problem of the missing tool.

So darn neat. Love your videos and straightforward tone as well. Favorited and subscribed

If I had kids running around the yard pushing something, you bet it would be a real lawnmower and not a fake one, why waste all that energy? ;)Great project, love the bending part.
Hah I feared it would be made out of pallets! I was a bit worried given all the chemical treatments they undergo. Nice work man :)
Easy Soft Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies
I always wondered how those were made, I'll definitely try it. Thanks for the detailed instructions.
hahaha you made me laughWitness me !
Great documentation and beautiful outcome. Do you have a picture of the chairs and table from a bit further away?
Great looking table ; you got my vote
Looks delicious !
Beautiful comment! ;)

Neat! I made a classical cajon recently, and this kind of intruments is really enjoyable to play.One thing I'd change is the cross head screws for torx, just for aesthetic purposes ;)Good work man.
Comme on dit en France, putain de bordel de merde. Je me demandais où tu étais passé, et je m'apprêtais à t'écrire un message pour savoir si tout allait bien... Tu vas nous manquer, mais je sais que tu reviendras un jour, peut être ici, peut-être ailleurs. A la prochaine l'ami :) si je passe dans le nord je t'enverrai un message pour demander à voir ton canoé. Bonne continuation,Deluges
Amazing - favorited.
Thank you for this wealth of information. Very instructive !
This is wonderful ! So much is possible...
Thank you for this, I'm on for a good day because of you <3

Wow. Looks amazing
Looks delicious, and stunning pics ! I wasn't sure what I was looking at at first - a big cookie seen through a bunch of holes ? ;)
Make It - Headphone Stand
This is beautiful, thanks for sharing ! And as troy mentioned the paper trick is great. Favorited !
Now my coworker is wondering why I spat my coffee everywhere laughingThanks for that
Neat project !
Thanks to you I learned about the Maillard reaction, thanks for sharing !Again, a great french discovery linked to food :)
I would be catutious about using a MAPP blowtorch to sear though, as it has a couple of additives for smell in there that I wouldn't like to find on my steak. Maybe straight propane or butane would be better but those have thiols (mercaptan) in them for smell purposes as well so... Hydrogen flame would be ideal for heating without residues, but out of the question for practical reasons. I guess an oxyacetylene blowtorch would be the best accessible choice but good luck on not burning the meat :)Imho the good old cast iron pan preheated for a while is the best option though !
Looks wonderful ! How many servings is that ?Definitely favorited for later !
Great project, kudos on referencing previous instructables.Favorited and you got my vote :)
Beer Keg no-weld electric smoker
I mean I guess I would have used pine or cedar
Great idea ! I would have kept the wood unpainted to bring an accent, maybe just finished it with polyurethane as it is going to be exposed to water
Amazing work and documentation, any luck catching whales ?
I am very confused by your reasoning in the first step, as none of the materials you used is more sustainable than bamboo itself or any other wood. You used an excessive amount of materials made from fossil ressources to take a stand for ecology ? What is the logical reasoning behind this ? If the "suffering of Mother nature is for real guys" as you say, why build a lamp out of non renewable materials with a bunch of extra features with no functional purpose rather than use a piece of bamboo that you can replace/make carbon neutral by planting a tree ? I'm not criticizing the design and I appreciate art for art, but it seems contradictory here to make this environmental speech at the beginning of such a project. Maybe the answer is in the video - I haven't watched it. But I'm ...see more »I am very confused by your reasoning in the first step, as none of the materials you used is more sustainable than bamboo itself or any other wood.

I don't think she is...
Ah, I love dry stone walls.Great work! Making or mending them is a peaceful and soothing action for the mind. Here's a picture of a stone wall we mended while WWOOFing in scotland a couple years back. It had been pushed out by the roots of a rose bush and fell over. I might instructable it at some point because I feel like mending isn't exactly the same process.
Dead Edge End Table
This is stunning, great write up as well! I feel what you described in those moments when all the time, money and reflexion directed towards a piece you're working on gets thrown out the window because you freehanded something like a dumbass and ripped. feelsbadman :)
That's a neat idea
Beautiful ! Your friend is lucky. I really love the way you made the tray.
NIce explanation, useful for beginners. Maybe something like that could go in the next level woodworking class.
Amazing job ! You just might want to find another power source than a bunch of 9V batteries ^^
Looks great! But does it turn on thunder ? :p
So smart, simple and elegant. You got my votes
You should make one out of a pallet man ;)
