V8 Engine Block Coffee Table with LED Lighting

Jordan has been tinkering around in the garage again and once again, he came up with something pretty cool. I thought you’d like a look at this V8 Engine Block Table. He utilized the original 305 block from his Trans Am and even used some of the internals to hold up the top. He cleaned and painted the block, clear coated the inside of the cylinders, and installed bright blue LED lighting. The lights run off a battery pack, so it doesn’t need to be plugged in to an outlet. He used the connecting rods, pistons, and roller rocker “spider”, to hold the two sheets of dark tinted glass in place. I think it really turned out great, hopefully you can appreciate it too. Thanks for watching, we appreciate it!

Folk Art Painting 36 Ford in the Country Almost Finished by RamblinAround

The weather has been keeping us inside a lot lately, so we’ve had to find things to keep us busy. I have been putting in a little more time on my painting and thought I should show you the progress. I really like painting these Folk art style landscapes and since I like classic cars, I usually include those as well. I try to start with primitive or naive style folk art, similar to the style of Grandma Moses, but then brighten it up and modernize it just a bit. They are just fun paintings to do and a good way to pass some time. I hope you find it interesting, thanks for watching!

Playing Homemade Slide Guitar and Danelectro Nifty Fifty Amp

 

I just picked up this cool little Danelectro Nifty Fifty amp at a garage sale yesterday and it works really well. I thought it would be a good time to get out one of my guitars and play a little. I’m sure I have some new subscribers that aren’t even aware that I build cigar box guitars. I hope you find it interesting….thanks for watching!
