Old school weatherproofing for canvas and metal | DIY

So this is an old blacksmith formula that I've been using this for years on many of my metal projects, it can also be used to weatherproof canvas/denim. 

Note, there are several annotations in the video which include the formula, so if you have them turned off, you won't see them.

But, just in case--the formula is pretty simple, it's 2:1:1 of Beeswax, Boiled linseed oil, and turpentine respectively.

Thank you all for watching!

Simple DIY Pallet Coasters

I've seen a few of these around the internet, I figured it would make a nice short little video on the process.
Anyone should be able to make these for under $15. Although I use a scroll saw and table saw in the video, you can buy all the materials (including the square dowels I cut) at your local hobby store. Also, you should be able to cut the popsicle sticks with scissors.
Thanks for watching!
