So, from what I can gather, yinz REALLY loved the cave table. And then you kind of liked the tensegrity chair. But regardless of what you thought of either chair, I decided to combine the two to make the ultimate floating cave chair.

CRAZY Epoxy Tree Table Build

After I finished building my Epoxy Lava Table and Epoxy Waterfall River Table, I already knew I wanted to make an Epoxy Tree Table. I’m going for an Earth, Wind, and Fire vibe. But since I can’t 3D model it, I’m going to be winging most of the steps. So make sure you follow along with my video now!

HIDDEN Compartment Catch All Box

So, recently I treated myself with a new handgun. It’s sized a little differently from my old one, which brings me to the current project I’m working on. A few years ago, I made a wooden box to hold my everyday carry or EDC as cool people say. But my new handgun doesn’t fit in that box. So I’m making a new one to hold my new EDC pistol. Make sure you check out my full video below to see the complete build!
