Step 1: Ingredients
- Popcorn seeds
- Canola Oil
- Large Pot with Lid
Step 2: Add the Oil
Step 3: Add the Seeds
Step 4: Cook!
Set the stove to high and shake the pot a little to spread out the seeds. When the oil starts to bubble, start shaking the pan back and forth. Once the popcorn starts popping at a steady pace, you can just start shaking occasionally. Once the popping slows, pick it up a few inches from the heat. If you're using a pot the size of the one I'm using, it'll get about halfway full. After popping stops, put the pot in the sink to cool it.
Step 5: Eat It!
Step 6: Hurricane Laser Cutter
First of all, I like to do papercraft. Now I am using a hobby knife to cut all the pieces out, which makes it look terrible and is very time-consuming.
I also like to do some woodworking, and this would allow me to make precise cuts on my projects.
Third, my dad runs a service called Memory Links (www.memorylinks.com) and has to send his pieces off somewhere to get them laser engraved. My dad would most likely be very excited if I took the laser cutter to his office so he could manufacture his own Memory Links.
Fourth, I make paracord bracelets and have been wanted to put dog tags on them. I have the dog tags, just no way to put custom messages on them.
Wow, I have a lot of uses for a laser cutter! Please vote for me!
Wait! One last thing. I will also post an instructable on everything I do with the laser cutter if I win it!
