  • DIY Floating Wall-Mounted Bike Rack (Free Template!)

    Nice Job very professional finish! I would do one thing differently I would make the first two triangles without cutting the center out. You could then drill through them and Lag Boalt the hanger directly to a convent stud,

  • Rechargeable LED Flashlight Using PVC Pipe

    Nice job with this build. Love the way we both think it is better to use salvaged components over buying new. I keep looking at the wiring of J1 and it looks like the polarity may be reversed / confused. It may just be that I don't recognize the charging jack you selected. Thanks

    Super Easy No-knead Sourdough Bread

    This looks great? I have been baking my own bread for years. The preheated container gives the finished product a wonderful crust. I have been proofing in my oven for years. I have a gas oven and before I start to bake I turn on the oven light for a while to warm up the inside. I live in Jamestown RI so half the year is cold and half is hot. I have had good success with this method.

    Stained Glass Door

    Great Job! I did some glass work years ago and now I'm retired and want to get back into it. I did it a little differently. Once I arrived at a design I put it on a light table I made and traced the pattern onto the glass I put over it. No need to cut out all the pattern pieces.

    Solar Heated Large Scale Dehydrator

    Nice design. A recycled computer Fan " 12 volt DC" and a small solar panel would make this portable and wireless. Also wouldn't you get a lot more heat gain if the outside of the box was painted Black? David Jamestown RISorry I missed the word Fan the first time.

    Soldering Quick Tips

    Great Tips thanks for reminding us of best work practices. I keep a spray bottle of clean water by my side when I'm soldering. It can be a quick squirt for an ember you catch sight of or to cool the joint once the solder has set. I have a heat shield I always use wet and also some assorted pieces of aluminum street sign with small holes drilled in to accommodate push pins for tacking to a flammable spot.Great Job
