Nice ideas. Especially the tea box.

Made three of them (as you know it is almost as easy to make three boxes as just one) and the recipients were pretty happy (my kids, my mom and our friend with little daughter). The inlay was different but the boxes were very similar in sizes etc.:))

We had issues with our front loading cloths washer not draining properly. The problem was easy to correct. Getting to the problem ... not so easy. But the washer now works like new again! Yay!
All is right with the world again - well insofar as doing laundry in my house is concerned anyway.

all those panels to clean a filter. They sure didn't make it serviceable.

I finally had time to actually watch the video. Nicely done!
While fitting the handle, did you try heating the plastic (at the hole only) to get it more malleable and get a custom fit? Another way to go about it that I'm thinking of is to make the hole a little larger than the handle, then wrap the handle with melted plastic, reheat that and then fit it into the mallet head.
How many milk jugs did that take?
HDPE is the plastic used in many household containers including gallon sized milk jugs. It's a dense and highly versitle material that can be easy processed and shaped without much trouble. Which makes it perfect for the hobb...

I did end up using the heat gun and shoving the handle in a couple times to get the fit right. I still had to file off more HDPE but it totally helped. 

I ended up using 7 milk bottles and 3 powedered lemonade containers. Though, I also cut a fair but off...

I really like how the "save" turned out. At first I was thinking that you would just make it to be a bell.

I watched with interest as I am going to use this resin on some upcoming projects of my own. Thanks for the warning on using the household oven. I surely don't need to give my wife any more grief!

I certainly do not want to sound like that self-proclaimed safety guru (God forbid), however, it seems to me that I would not want to harden a mallet head like this. I'm far from a physics expert, but that energy is going to go somewhere and the only remaining options are the project being worked, the chisel being hammered, or the worker holding the mallet. It may not seem like a lot, but after thousands of strikes it will add up on increased wear on the more expensive chisel and if it's the user receiving that energy it could add up exponentially in a more rapid onset of osteoarthritis.

+Dogwood Tales Thanks for watching . I guess a good way to avoid damaging a chisel handle would be stabilize it also :) Thanks for your comment. This process is also great for pen blanks, knife scales, & pistol grips.

Great tips! Paraffin wax is great to use to lubricate the threads on clamps and on things like the various threaded parts of a table saw arbor carriage as it attracts less dust like grease can.

It's a little hard to see in the photo, but this is a 1:1 ratio drawing/profile of a chair that Keith designed and made for his dinning room set. 
Keith is not one to cut corners in the design to build process ... and the results show it.
