He's really found his kind of his voice his brand any built that a real awesome hybrid workbench. It's a hybrid of Nicholson halts, apple Rubio and the things a monster. So they're coast craftsman is my is what's inspiring me. Shop this last last year in June. I think it was are you did you guys doing collaboration? We shot intros out tros for it.

Allen has a YouTube channel leave a link to it. But he did he did a puzzle last year, and he did this little hand puzzle. And he calls it the crazy puzzle box that is absolutely mind blowing and I it's done with power tools. But I I want to try and do a version of it with hand tools, and I went through some of his other videos that are just some release sweet stuff a lot of good inspiration on there that I want to be in and do myself. So definitely worth taking a look at his crazy. Puzzle box. It looks like one of those their shape games you had a kid where you put blocks in from different sides. But they're buttons on your side that are shaped. And then it's a tumbler that is, you know, like a combination tumbler accepted. There's two of them to the open this thing up in it's complicated.
