Zero-emissions Reclaimed Bench

Introduction: Zero-emissions Reclaimed Bench

About: i am an artist and musician. i make things of use out of things that no longer have use. i think the hip term is "upcycling." i post a lot of inspirational and entertainment videos on youtube.com/timsway. oc...

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 ;-)
