  1. I love this, and I love that you brought Peter to the shop. At the end when Adam tells Peter he is a maker extraordinaire, I thought I could see the +10 confidence, +20 joy pop -up above him.

  2. He should make another one out of fabric….so he can prove that every tulle’s a hammer too. If he’s really ambitious he could try to bake one, but I’m not sure that every tuile’s a hammer.

  3. I’m surprised that worked given how rubbery ArtResin cures, but congratulations on finding a use for the stuff.

    But for the love of all that is decent and holy, kids, don’t make an inch deep cut with a long, narrow cutter in a soft, meltable plastic like that. The fact that it didn’t snap right in half and throw the workpiece out of the clamps is a minor miracle.

  4. Honestly this is beautiful and wholesome. I’m very impressed at how well the hammer worked out the idea of a DIY workshop where you make all of your own tools would be super rad and this is a nice jumping off point for that concept and the potential viability of it.
