Not really a project, but I made a video today of grandsons enjoying their KMX Karts. Crazy boys!  :smug:

A project previously featured on this thread (the Gospin 360) was used to make part of the video, so I thought I'd post it on the Wobbly Workshop thread: https://youtu.be/Y0e9PdCBMtE

Just catching up on, oo, two years worth of this thread, and this sign has to be one of the best forum posts ever!

A couple of projects for when I can get out to do a bit of camping/bushcraft - A collapsible bucksaw out of Ash. The blade gets protected by a groove in the sides when folded up - I need to get a new blade and make a bag for it:







When I dug out the compost heap at the allotment earlier in the year, I found an old knife that had accidentily been thrown out with the vegtable peelings - The wooden handle had rotted a bit, so I took it apart and re-handled it from a scrap of Wenge, and added a roughly stitched sheath from leather. It will be useful for food prep when camping.





I might make a better sheath for it and a leather bag for the bucksaw if I get the industrial sewing machine out after Christmas.

...and today I had the heavy-duty sewing machine out and made a leather (reclaimed from an old sofa) sheath for the bucksaw.

It could have done with being a bit shorter, but one day I might make a 24" blade one instead of this 21" one...
