  1. I bet you put a lot of thought in that vase and a lot more possiblitys came out of it.all the best 👏👏👏

  2. Wow what an amazing use for milliput. I will definitely be giving it a go. I can get off cuts of insulation boards from work. You really are the milliput king 🤴

  3. How this could you cut that milliput dow to once it is dry? For instance could you make it thin enough for light to shint through for like a lamp shade or an LED lap shade?

  4. Beautiful Jim, I love the new color. I would never have thought about using foam for a core, Brillant thinking.

  5. Very clever, as usual. I love milliput but at approx. $10 per pack it does start to add up. That said, I am looking forward using the new colors.

  6. reminds me of some kind of a camouflage pattern, I like it! smart and innovative as always, I'm looking forward to whatever you come up with next ❤ keep up the good work and take care, good sir.

  7. Very artistic as always Jim. I'm delighted to hear that Milliput are bringing out a turquoise colour – I'm sure it will be come very popular.

  8. Thanks for that Jim looks very good didnt know you could use Milliput like that.
    I have been wanting to make a barrel for a while but always struggled with what to make the metal bands out of and having watched this I think Milliput will do it.
    Thank you

  9. Another very interesting video Jim. I’m not a woodturner but I do make knives, I was wondering if you think Yorkshire grit would be suitable for buffing wooden, G10 or micarta knife scales?

  10. Your videos a pure inspiration. Always a reminder to step back and try to see things in a new and different way. Great stuff, thanks!
