Click PLAY on the music player>>>
We spent several hours, experimenting with different techniques and sounds for Sex and Chaos and First Base.
Changing a few of the lyrics also helped sell the sex...it's not a dirty or offensive song,

Developed by my nephew, Nick, this line of play swords can withstand brutal punishment. We know. We've tested them.
(Nick is seen here in full armorment for paintball)
So you may be thinking...looks like that would hurt. But the brilliant part of this design is that the 'blade' of the swords are so broad that wind resistance reduces the force behind the blow. Even a grown man with the strength of 10 men cannot swing the sword with any significant momentum.
Yes, I know. This is all very scientific and starting to sound a bit like "Mythbusters" but rest assured that when you find yourself in the troughs of battle up against a vicious enemy---no harm will come.
Fun Swords by Nick are now available on Etsy!

For really, though, safety measures are very important to crafters. Be it glue gun or circular saw, almost every tool has a sharp edge, a heated tip or some horrific way to harm oneself. We master these tools and respect their power. We remind ourselves that the danger exsists every time we interact and enforce our will upon some unsuspecting materials.
I'll spare you the horror stories and instead deal with the mundane. From the stripper to the sander to the wood stain, every step calls for protection. Carving, cutting and shaping wood sometimes requires highpowered tools and armor-like sheilds to divert the random flying chip. Even a small, handheld rotary tool can throw off debris at incredible velocity.
I don't really need the hard hat, it's just a fashion statement:)

The instant heat up and quick cool down allows the shaped tips to be changed in a flash.
I still make good use of my solid tip burners, and occasionally fiddle around with antique copper burners....and even a magnifying glass for solar burning!
