    Book Safe With Lock

    that's I so very true, so everyone if you are going to do this please please check the internet for said books, special if they are stamped as 2nd,3rd addition in the flycover as in many cases they can be very valuable depending on what the subject/story's are, but sometimes it is of a value due to the author of the book or even the age. I have books from 1800s that I found in old junkshops as a kid I bought them because I loved the age that they were not because of the subject/story that was in them, I did not learn the value of my books until I trained as a bookbinder. I love books and hate seeing them chopped up for projects and the such like, but for a book that has no value it's not so painful to chop up for something like this.

So many people think that just because a book is old it has no value but as you have pointed out this is not the case for many old/semiold books I too have collected old books from second hand stores for many years and have check up on them and found that many of my books I have bought have a small/large value on them. With the internet now checking up on book values is a lot simpler now lol.I have been collecting books since I was a toddler lol me Mum use to laugh at me when I was little as I would keep them all neat and tidy on a shelf lol but the rest of my stuff would be all over the place, this has not changed in the last 50+ years lol Because of my love of books I trained as a bookbinder so that I could restore some of my old books that do not have a value on them and to make bound boxes for the ones that do have a value to keep them safe.

  • How to Break Down Sheet Material Easily!

    I should have menetioned I love the sawguide you made I made mine with a fold back with a piano hinge system works the same way but when I cut I just fold back the saw depth part and cut, but it's only for short cuts have not gotten around to making my long cut version yet but after seeing yours I think I will make it like that one ?? save a bit of money on having to buy 3 piano hinges that's for sure ? Thanks for the instructable for that as well I would have gotten there eventually but you saved me a few hours of work around ?????

    ?? now I wish I had thought of this I have a heap of old pallet sheets from solar panals when they where brought into the country a friend gave me the palates after he finished installing all the solar panals. I have a heap of the staked away as I have to have someone help me cut them on the bench saw?? now with the table top idea I have just throw it down and cut to my hearts content on me own ???? thanks for the great instructable and great idea ?? umm I can see a lot of workshop time heading my way again yummy ???

    Hi I liked the clamps better in purple ??Was fascinated by the holes you were drilling in the plates for a while until the penny dropped loved the concept of that will defiantly be using that technique on my next welding job that's for sure ???I will have to watch the video again when I am ready to make my own clamps they are really great and defiantly better than the ones I bought that's for sure I liked the ones with the removablele heads butter as this would take up less room if I made those ones as it would save on workshop space that's for sure. Plus I could have as many shafts which are easier to store than the whole clamps.Thanks for sharing this project.

As to the quality I have no idea as yet lol but I do know that when I have been digging it our when wet it's not got a grainy feel to it but rather a soft silky smooth feeling to it.

Along with lots of old pallets this is what 90% of the kitchen will be made from :-) the other 10 is the new sink and faucets fittings will be along with the new stove top.

I use them for making miniatures for dollhouses. The dremal is great for doing this as they also have the add ons depending on what you need them for.

    hi Ro James Great job on the shade house and green house :-) just a quick note my next door neighbour made something like this and used cable ties too, but they keep breaking and need replacing every few months they don't like the UV much and go brittle so I would recommend that you get some more of that UV twine and go over all of the supports with the twine so that when the cable ties do die at least the shade cloth will stay put :-) Oh I am in the outback of Queensland, right in the storm belt so we get the blooming hot days and cold nights due to the desert next to us and the mountains on the other side of us. I have voted for you as you've done a great instructable easy to follow :-) thanks mateRegards Angela

    like the idea but it means you have to keep the water above everything and that would look messy over time as much as pumps do make a noise they at least keep the water below out of site. Now I just have to work the idea to flick a switch to the pump when it needs watering and then to turn it off after a minute as a pump would move the water faster. So the test would be to see how long it takes for the pump to move the water to the plant to fill the self watering pot reserve and then turn it off once there is enough water hum will have to get my friend to look at this as he's the expert when it comes to this sort of thing :-)Thanks for the idea I do like it just need to modify it to suit my planes :-) if this works out it could be used in the garden too :-)It defiantly has a lot of pos...see more »like the idea but it means you have to keep the water above everything and that would look messy over time as much as pumps do make a noise they at least keep the water below out of site.

    Wooden mice by AlestRukov

    I never found the instructions on how you make the mouse. I love them but this is just a story not instructions on how to make one myself :-/They are very nice and I have been playing with the idea of coating mine with a wood for some time now but you have made the whole mouse with wood :-)It would be nice for step by step on how to make the mouse but it looks like you have used a milling machine to do the work rather than making them by hand.
