    Very Creative Fellow - Does a lot more with a lot less

    This guy is very creative. He makes unusual instruments and built this work table.

    Well he is creative, that's for sure. Looks like something my father in law would do.

    Looks more like a horse with someone torturing it with a drill in it's back.

    Cripes.

    I'd poke fun, but it honestly looks like something I'd build.

    ....except that if I did it, it wouldn't be painted that well.

    Considering he's in an area where running to the local Borg isn't a real option, I'd say he did pretty good.

    I tip my hat to this guy. He has loads of fun at a very good price and i bet his projects look more wow than anything i have produced having spent thousands of dollars on tools. Brent i just love that site, hate the membership aspect though.
    cheers

    He definitely thinks outside of the box and does some pretty nice work.

    Take his popsicle stick guitar for instance.

    It's really kind of amazing what he can do with his limited resources.

    Wow! That guitar looks like it was made with a shop full of expensive tools.
    He is innovative. I dunno how he gets any kind of accuracy with that drill press set-up. I used a commercial one for a long time. Handy if you were not particular about accuracy.

    He built a guitar out of popsicle sticks? Using that setup?

    And it looks that good?


    ....well, I certainly feel inadequate.
