How to Make an Axe Handle Using Only a Five Pound Bag of Gummy Bears and 13 Ounces of Resin

Upon receiving multiple requests from his fans to use gummy bears in his work, Peter Brown of Shop Time gave in and demonstrated how to craft an axe handle with a five-pound bag of the aforementioned bears and just 13 ounces of resin.

What do you get when you cross a 5 lb bag of gummy bears, 13 oz of resin, and a wicked sharp double axe head? Sounds to me like a really bad idea…I love it. I had many “firsts” in this project, but I can say I’m happy as can be that the gummy bear axe now exists. Also, pretty happy to add this to the completed project column.

Once again, things are getting weird.
