    Magic Cardboard Wallet (Super Easy)

    TY

    Nice little wallet to stick in back pocket while on motorcycle OR add some rare earth magnets, a little flap closure and stick to bike tank. Would be good for those rides you need cash fast for the toll booths. The idea to use leather was also a good one. Thank you for sharing :)

  • How to Make a Polished Aluminum Foil Ball

    Hi Liana, I am in the constant process of making one of these balls. The foil should be hammered hard enough so that the inside basically becomes solid. You will hear the change in sound. Mine is about 70mm across (about 2.75 inches) and SOLID and weighs about a lb. I am using the foil that I wrap and freeze my meats in, and yes I wash the sheets. You WILL get edges that will not lay flat it is the nature of the beast. you can push the edges back a bit so they stand up and snip off and then hammer again. Some of them are not tall enough to cut so I fold them back on them selves and hammer. You can't rush this the process can get meticulous in execution.

  • Resin & Wood - the Gentleman's End Table

    Beautifully executed and thank you for sharing. If I may make a suggestion please. If you are using this for an end table etc. It invites things to be set on it. My suggestion is to put a slide out supported shelf from the box underneath the bottle and glasses. It looks like you would have room for one coming out of the back and sides. This way you have a place to keep the things like a lamp etc on while the box is open and/or a place to set the glasses while pouring out the libation :)

  • OccuPod - an Old Storm Drain Pipe Turned Into a Warm and Comfortable Living Space!

    Great idea even for campgrounds and emergency housing. Can be stacked 2 or 3 high with possible retractable ladders. Easy to transport on a flatbed. One question though, how do you keep it clean and sanitary. The spaces between the boards seem to invite dirt etc, and with the use of pressure washers the wood would fir ( the fibers would separate). Have you though of using instead of wood a composite lumber that would be easier to clean and still give the feeling of cozy? Thumbs up :)

  • Instructables Holiday Ornament - Icosahedron

    Thank you for sharing your well written tutorial and idea. This would be cute made from heavier stock and using non toxic glue to attach seeds for the birds to eat from. Thin wooden skewers for perches could be passed through the form for the birds to land on. They are not that heavy so I think the form would stay intact :)

    Another good idea Elaina. Maybe cut from gallon or quart milk jugs. To help with the bends use a heat gun if the fold doesn't stay.

  • Organic Cauliflower, Onion & Bacon Squares

    Rhonda thank you for this recipe. I too am on a low carb plan and with a few tweeks mentioned above I think it might work for me :)

    TeresaM7 If you are doing extremely low carb you have to leave out the carrot. You might want to replace with broccoli. You also might want to replace the coconut flour with psyllium. I am going to try this recipe with the changes and maybe add some cheese with a cheese crust.

    lynn.c.berry you probably have never had organically grown and fed pork/bacon. The taste IS better than regular farm grown pork products. No nitrates, nitrites, no Monsanto GMO corn & soy products as feed. The containers you see in markets that are specifically made for microwaves are made because of the leaching of regular plastics. :)

  • Cherry & Resin French Rolling Pin

    This came out absolutely beautifully!!!!! If I may make a suggestion, you may be able to sand the pin down now that it has had time to fully cure and reapply another layer of the clear resin. Use FRESH resin in your next mix. Below is a troubleshooting site for resin which has a step for what seems happened to your piece. Good luck.

    The site didn't post for some reason. I will try again and if it didn't post again, try going to artresin.com and look for the troubleshooting page or just plug in resin troubleshooting in your search engine. :)

    Biodegradable Pots

    If you do not have a 3D printer or access to one you can take two plastic Meow Mix cat food containers, papier mache', or what other biodegradable mush you want to use. Poke holes in one container to make a sieve with small hot nails. Fill with the mache' press the other cup in to form. Or you could use deep muffin pans and do the same thing to form the cups. Voila seedling cups :)

    Edward with the poking of the nail it might take a minute or two depending on how hot it is. A person can also get a small drill bit and drill the holes. Not many would be needed for the water to be pressed out :) The Mache' will be formed and it would dry. This suggestion is not to undermine your tutorial and idea but give an alternative for those that don't have 3D printers or access to them :)

  • How to Make a Polished Aluminum Foil Ball

    Hi Felix, Think of water that turns to ice. Just a different element and way to make a semi malleable material a solid shape :) Also think of it as working a very thin gauge metal, which it is, and shaping it into a different form. If you try to make a bowl please share your experience and outcome. If it isn't perfect that is ok, the trying is the essential part, and we might learn something which is always a good thing. Good Luck!!

    If working with foil makes your hands black ( experience) what does it do to your clothes?

    Lovely work, but, what drew me into reading the instructable was the picture you posted of what I thought was the finished product. I wanted to see how you attached the discarded pieces. I was disheartened to see that you did not incorporate the outside pieces into your final pendant which would have made it more interesting and would have become a conversation piece. You could have soldered wire pieces to the head and the discarded pieces to make it look like a blowout schematic which is what intrigued me in the first place. Might be a good idea for future reference.

Make a mock up with either pleather or vinyl both are thick enough and malleable enough to imitate how the leather will fall in these types of applications plus the expense will be lessened. Hope this helps and is a good idea for what you are doing :)

Cats when they jump on something look like they land lightly but, if I am right the pressure of the landing makes the cat heavier. Ever press down on a floor scale and see the gauge go upward if you keep pressing down?
