    These are very beautiful and I would love to own something like these but like Cristoph said a hole saw would be easier. Like way easier. Not sure how it would be a bit more work. Seems more straightforward and less time consuming. Having said that as a guitar player I know what it feels like to hold something that you made which holds beauty in its form and function. And the pride that you made something so incredibly "yours". The one thing that bothers. Me about some of the more advanced insructables is the tools needed to make these. Most people don't have a lathe at the disposal. (Me) most don't have most of the heavier type of machinery that most people employ while making these types of tools.

Maybe you could offer possible viable alternatives to some of the more expensive equipment. I realize that with some instructables there's no getting around it but I feel like it leaves a lot of people out only because of there lack of access to many of these types of machines. This isn't meant to be a negative comment btw. Your work is of the most superlative quality and I would be honored in owning something like this to do my custom guitars and leather guitar straps with. I'm am not in the nature of being negative or critiquing I was just wonder if maybe there were options is all. Well done. Cheers.

  • Smokehouse, pizza oven, garden grill - DIY tutorial

    Never ever heat up galvanize wire. The fumes are literally deadly. When zinc (which is what galvanized wire is coated with) heats up it gives of a gas that when inhaled can literally poison your lungs within minutes. People have died from this. Maybe go back and edit that part. I'm glad I'm not the only one who noticed that.

    In response to the gentleman who said you could get rid of the galvanized coating by using muriatic acid. We are talking using this use with food. Regular stainless steel wire or twine is probably super cheap and way easier and cheaper than removing the galvanized coating period much less with a acid used to clean bricks and concrete. Probably have some lying around the house. If not lowes has it for free out front of their stores to help tying things down. Your money would be more wisely spent on some stainless steel wire than concrete cleaner. The fumes from muriatic acid with rust everything is comes in contact with. I know this to be a fact. It also makes your teeth hurt if you accidentally inhale any. All that aside. I was looking into making a kiln and stumbled across this.

    3$ Disk Sander

    Agreed. I find this to be more common than anything on here. I suppose if someone gave you a sanding disk it would be free except for all of the time spent searching and collectting parts and then the time spent putting them together. Many people on here don't think of their "time" as a cost but in reality it is the one that costs the MOST. Just a reminder. It was a pretty neat way to think outside the box kudos.

  • Create Your Own Engagement Ring and SAVE MONEY?

    Incorrect. Try coping a Tiffany's tag. See how far you get. Just using the blue color for your packaging will land you in court.

  • Tool Organizer - Pliers and Wrenches

    Cut small notches in the back and front piece of wood as well as a few notches on inside of the slats. That being said maybe a little thicker would would have to be used,making this completely modular. I did this with plastic shelving I got from Hancock fabrics as they were closing down their store and were selling literally everything including furnishings. The plastic shelves were free and so were the dividers. Easy to clean and they are oil and grease resistant. Very durable to. This is a pretty good representation of how to do this or something similar. If your that worried about constantly changing everything around to fit stuff in A) get another tool box or just leave an extra drawer free or some open space reserved for new tools. Good video nevertheless

    Good video. Read my response to cheezdog please. Thanks for taking the time to share.
