Varnished judge's mallet.

How to make a small mallet with wood branches. Mere Mortals video contest.

I am preparing the video for “The Mere Mortals Video Contest”. I finally finished recording everything and I realize that I have 50 fragments of videos to edit (I don’t know how it could happen). The rule that Steve Ramsey (I guess he needs no introduction) set is that the videos should be 10 seconds, although he later said that you don’t have to stick to that much either. My main video will be about that length, but I will have links to other videos related to that one. I hope people will be encouraged to see them all.

I think I’m going to create a playlist on purpose on my youtube channel that I’ll call something like “Video falls for the 2012 Mere Mortals Video Contest” (more or less, I don’t know how correct my English is, I think I’m taking too much license making up words). I have until Sunday to introduce myself, which means that today and tomorrow I will spend the day editing, while I leave you some photos to whet your appetite. I hope you like them and vote for me :-).

El primer vídeo, en el que vemos cómo hacer una maza de madera, es el que uso para el concurso y los otros  4 (si, 5 vídeos de una vez, igual me paso un poco) son los que van enlazados en el primero. Desearme suerte y si os gustan me podéis votar haciendo clic en me gusta en el vídeo. Encontrareis todos los vídeos participantes aquí (ya no). Ya como curiosidad, la base y la cabeza del martillo o maza de madera son de roble, y el mango es de una rama de manzano.

Video 3: How I made this other thing (base for punching)
