    I may be late on this, but what if you put locking casters on your desks? You could move them to anywhere you like and reconfigure as you need to.

    Is Nobody pointing out that those 'Big Tall Computer' are way better to work long periodes of time? Because you don't stare downwards. It's horrible on your neck/shoulders. Look for Computer Ergonomics

    Nord VPN protects your web browsing?? Are you sure? Their servers were hacked big time about a year ago, and only recently admitted it!

    The next time you want to try legs like that just take some .1875 sheet , taper both ends from 8 inches to four inches. Hammer the hell out of it for appearance. Then bend it 90 degrees down the center. Just a suggestion.

    @Alec Steele Why not cut the legs from plate steel, and run a bead of weld to join them? If you cut the pieces to 5" or 6" at the top, they would allow enough plate surface to drive in 3 or 4 lug bolts, and make a very Stout and stable leg. Just a thought! 🙂👍🏼

    I love watching you guys but I think if you haven't heard, you need to know about NordVPN. They had a massive security breach. They have not handled it well. They knew about the breach for some time (up to 7 months) before acting. Consider other ad revenue till this is sorted out please. I know Tech stuff isn't really your wheel house but if you have questions about the validity look at JayzTwoCents a tech youtube content creator that has recently dropped them from his service.

      Yeah, they need a proper kitchen again!


    Dude, cut discs from the round bar, cut some threaded rod studs, weld HD nuts on the legs and the discs on the threaded rods, and BOOM! Save yourself some time and money. Nice craftsmanship though.

    I have to admit being a little tepid on the hammers, until your explanation. How awesome to have them made by one of your former students! Next, I'd like to suggest you create a display wall or individual plaques for all your swords and other blades. A great mini project would be to make sword wall hanging mounts. Maybe fleur de lis?

    • Art of the Ancients
      Art of the Ancients

      I'd suggest burned cedar (shou sugi ban) with brassed steel rings/posts for the swords & knives, maybe laid out exactly like the tshirt. Bonus points if you put in spot lighting to highlight individual pieces, like the kris (my personal favorite).

    I think you might have learned from the problems of Hoffman Blacksmith. Good on you for not releasing stuff for sale until you're ready. I'm still waiting on an order from Hoffman from 2017!

    Hey Alec! I know you probably won’t see this but I had a idea for a vid I think would be cool and difficult. It would be one of those vids where it’s you vs Will but the challenge is you play some sort of song with a lot of or fast beat. But you have to hit the work piece with the hammer with every beat! No skipping a beat. At the end of the song you each show what you have built and we vote on what is better.

    Hi Alec lovely table btw looks like it could do with a nice early 1900’s Watchmakers Anvil as a paperweight 🤔 I am currently in possession of two and a miniature crucible if you are interested? If so let me know.

    im slightly worried about the wood warping? im actually getting a job next week straightening a table that has warped, the wood in it is quite a bit smaller so not sure if the thickness will prevent warping or if it will be worse. i hear you usually make a rigid steel frame that holds the legs in place, and you bolt the tabletop to that to prevent warping. any more experienced woodworkers here?
