Airship Low Poly Papercraft 3D Model
Great Instructable! I would just add that taking off the snow from the roof is a good idea - also for yourself. Driving in Sweden, I have several times experienced the somewhat scary surprise when you break hard the first time and all that roof snow (your own) slides down on your front windshield. This may happen in around freezing temperature when you have a lot of wet heavy snow on your roof and the interior heat eventually starts melting it from below. And no, your windshield vipers will not be able to remove it... You have to get out on the road and do it yourself.
That is one great Instructable! I may have to try it someday if I can get my hands on some affordable leather.
Nice handle! I wish I had a lathe.
Very cool! Or... rather... warm actually. Would be very useful in Sweden given the predictions for this winter!
Thanks for the tip! I normally tape the knife blade to avoid cuts and hold it without gloves for a better feel. But this was a photo taken after the project just to show what direction to hold the knife on my particular type of sander. And I felt a bit naked holding the untaped blade in my bare hand....hence the gloves. But thanks for the warning still!
Thank you! Changing the leather handle of the hammer sound like a project well worth doing. Good luck and it would be fun to see a photo of the before/after hammer.
Thank you for your nice comment! Using a hard natural wax (carnauba wax) gives a very shiny result - and a good grip.
Thank you! I appreciate to get praise from someone who knows a lot about Bowie knives!
Nice Pen! I have to try that!
I am glad you liked it - and yes it would be great to use scrap leather for stacked leather handles. It feels like a waste when I buy large pieces of leather and then cut them down to size...
Thank you! It is not very difficult to learn.
Glad that you liked it!
Very cool project! I wouldn't mind having a handy axe like that.
