I must make this must have! Thanks for documenting every step so accurately. I agree with sgbotsford that the fences are weakened by the initial saw cuts. Maybe steel angle glued and screwed at the top back edge of each could reinforce them?
KentM your projects are elegant and instructables are clear; bravo! You must be an engineer of some sort. The PiggyVac would be viable as a cottage industry for you if you vacuum formed it from ABS or polycarbonate. You'd have a great time making the forms and jigs out of wood or MDF, and I'm sure could figure out a universal mounting system. Then everyone could enjoy better dust collection easily. Myself I want the Dust Deputy but until I get one have done all right by just putting a white bucket between the vac and the wand. Even without a cyclone, large chips and especially water drop into the bucket and never reach the vac & filter.
Wonderful idea, and a service to your neighborhood!
Thanks for explaining this very cool project, makes me want to become a DuinoDweeb! I also use the Oneida thermometer but wish it could alarm when a temperature drops to a target temp: I use it for homemade yogurt and after a high of 182 F, I need something to wake me up when the milk drops to 110 F. Gotta hack it somehow since the manufacturer didn't.
Beautiful patterns in the leather! If there's ever an affordable water jet cutter for home use, it won't burn the edges. Thanks!
You are a very competent sculptor, and your superb pictures and comments will help us follow in your footsteps; at least "punkins" are cheaper than marble! Thanks very much for the inspiration.
Elegant job, thanks! What a great use for used monitors in second hand stores all over the USA, where framed pictures can be had there also for very few dollars. It would be super to make a wall mounted version. Did you also make the floating planters in step 6?
