For those of you who haven't seen the work of Mike Stinnett- artist and woodcarver- mostly walking sticks. This is just a two minute intro to his work- he's put out more than seventy video clips and I've seen 'em all. Ignore the patreon plug- he's on youtube :)

I'd probably trip over it when I got up for a leak and give myself a heart attack!!

Great stuff!
I'm going to check out one of those discs for my angle grinder. I hadnt seen those ones before.

Those discs are great- they let you turn a minor slip into a major screw up in a split second:) I was looking at the snake scale tips he uses for his pyrography ( more than four thousand scales burnt in one at a time on the average snake, then each scale painted- many of them multiple times) You can buy a half decent pyrography kit for around thirty dollars- and then the half dozen scale tips he uses for another $149 :) I am sorely tempted though. Years ago someone told me how easy it was to turn your battery charger into a wood burner, just by making a burning tip from mig wire and hooking it up. It worked sort of OK for about three minutes, and then a big cloud of white smoke came out of my battery charger- I'm pretty sure it was its soul going off to heaven, cause it never worked again.
