Carpenter Jimmy DiResta has previously made some useful tool totes out of wood, but this time, he decided to make a more stylish and unique tote, welded from steel rods, and wrapped in leather. It’s heavy for a toolbox, but it’s not going to be used for field work.
Ice cream sammies are pretty yummy all on their own, but Epicurious shows us how to make them just that much better by stacking them together into a decadent mint chocolate layer cake with them. We suppose you could substitute cherry, orange, or almond extract.
Primitive Technology goes easy on himself for once and makes a shrimp trap. It has a funnel that lets shrimp in but not out. It doesn’t need bait and you can make multiple traps to get you more food. Or something to barter. Man, a complete PT village would be awesome.
