Be safe this Holiday Season (not for the squeamish)

Posted by Josh Feathers on Saturday, November 27, 2010, In : Kubb Sets 
All those things your high school shop teacher told you about safety....they are all true. While you may not have time to review the top 10 safety tips every woodworker should know, let's highlight on Number 8 in hopes that nobody else will share the fate of my Uncle's kubb-building injury.

The Most Beautiful....

Posted by Josh Feathers on Tuesday, October 26, 2010, In : Kubb Sets 
Here is the kubb set built by Tim Arends of Arends Production Services; arguably the most beautiful set ever played:

This set went at the 2010 Fall Kubb Klassic for a measly $165.00 - all proceeds going to Iowa CASA
I will try to get photos of it after it has been played (oh yeah, the proud owner played it that night).

I would like to compile some of the nicest sets ever made; please send me photos of these works of art and I will share them in future "these".

Mr. Awesome is planning on making a set for silent auction made of Locust. It will be amazing.

1st coat of tung oil brings out some crazy coloring. 
 Nicknamed King Kong, it's the heaviest I have ever lifted

Complete with my first stab at woodburning. That is supposed to be a feather.

The set, in direct light hard-shadows

(or how I learned to stop worrying and love the King)

 I built the set I learned to play on, so I guess I’ve been a kubb builder longer than a kubb player (a little over two years of each at the time of this writing) and during that time I’ve built, or helped to build, dozens of kubb sets. Things were a little rough going in the beginning since every website I found with directions seemed to have different dimensions for the pieces (it took a little while for me to find the official worldw...
