A New Boomerang

Have a go at creating a boomerang

Those of an addictive or compulsive nature probably shouldn't try to fly one!

The YouTube video and Instructable should give you all you need to get started.

I made mine from pallet wood, just for the challenge of it.

Of course, you'll need to test fly and make adjustments before you achieve the perfect boomerang performance, but surely that's half the fun!

These sketches should help you visualize the aerodynamic profiles required:

T-Shirt Giveaway News

Congratulations Nick
The first Lee Cooper Workwear t-shirt giveaway on my YouTube channel was won this week by Nick (pictured right).

The letters 'K', 'O', and 'A', were included in the Tanga Tanga, Trend T31 Review, and European Walnut videos, and there were two acceptable answers: Koa, and Oak.

The next t-shirt giveaway begins now, with four letters to be included in future videos (not every video has a letter). If, I have at least one correct entry, one week after the final video is published, then a winner will be drawn then. If not, I'll issue a reminder and wait another week, and so on until there is a winner.

Remember, all you need to do is collect the letters, share the videos (any method you like), arrange the letters to make a woodworking term, and email me the word.

T-Shirts To Support Free Online Content

Some of the designs on Threadless
I've just created a Threadless shop through which to sell t-shirts and other apparel, carrying the Mitch Peacock and Cre8 branding. I'm hoping this will be an almost effortless way to allow followers to support my continued work producing free online content. Mostly that is my woodworking videos on YouTube, but also Instructables articles.

I think Threadless will be a fairly cheap way for American followers to get hold of these products, and I will look out for similar opportunities in other countries.

In the UK? If you are in the UK, then you might like to consider a short Patreon subscription, where for $5 per month you can get a link to the main logo design in Vistaprint, and use it to have a t-shirt or similar printed using their normal service.

Spiral Wind Sculpture

Published both an Instructable and Video on making my Spiral Wind Sculpture.
Depending on your starting material, this can be a really quick build with a great result. I used the off-cuts from my Spiral Planter/Table, which in turn was made from pallets.

Bentley Woodfair 2016

Take a stroll around the stands at this years Bentley Woodfair.
I went back after filming to chat with the stall holders, and have included details of those I found interesting.

I filmed a few of the demonstrations going on too, such as chainsaw racing, and those will be published soon on my YouTube channel. There are links to them in the main video, but they will only become active once the videos are ready.
