  1. That jig to sand to 45deg is so simple but effective, it's perfect for thin layers like this.

    So is this your first video without Eric?

  2. Nice project! Remember the old school way people would role cigarettes up in there sleeve? Wonder how that would fare! Great vid man, keep it up!

  3. I saw the thumbnail and verbally blurred out “holy crap that’s awesome!” Great work I kept hearing you talking about this on the podcast didn’t realize it would be this cool!

  4. I don't know where you come up with half this stuff!

    Side note: I thought I was the only one that used the "sand paper/drill trick".

  5. Looks like a pack of Marlboro “leads” so creative and well executed man! Cool idea 💡

  6. Holy crap this is so solid and well timed with my project!

    I was about to make a cigar holder for my friend. I googled some design and saw a picture of basically this exact same thing! (But it folded out and down instead of up and back)

    Thanks for the ideas of how to make it!
