  • Bicycle Baggage Net From Old Inner Tube

    Well done!!!! This would make a great cargo net also for a motorcycle or even for the back of a truck. The technique reminds me of the gum wrapper chains I used to do as a child, but I never connected them. I am going to study your pictures to see if I can make the net. Wish you made a video on how to connect each piece to make a sheet of this weave, but I think I can figure it out :) Thank you so much for sharing your idea.

  • Scandinavian Christmas Gnomes From Socks

    These are adorable!!! If I may make a suggestion, the rice will attract critters when you store your gnome, and all your hard work may be ruined. You might want to try sand which you can get in your hardware store. Its dry and clean. If you are concerned about the sand sifting through the fibers of the socks just fill a plastic grocery bag with the sand and then put it inside the sock you make for the body. Thank you so much for sharing, I giggled when I looked at your pictures :)

  • Sofa Reupholstery With Biscuit or Square Tufting

    Beautifully done. If I may make a few suggestions for your consideration. You mentioned you like minimalist/modern furniture. The sofa, even though tufted meets the expectations. I would consider taking the legs off and moving them closer to the ends, You made this adjustment in your sketch up plan and the sofa looks better and more balanced. You might add a leg to the center front and back. In well made furniture the legs in the middle of large sofas give more structural support. I wonder what the legs would look like in silver...might be a thought also. Thank you for sharing...and again BEAUTIFULLY done.

    If I may answer, yes you can tuft leather but it should be upholstery leather which is more pliable. Chesterfield couches which is what Martins couch resembles are usually upholstered in leather. You may not want as many tufts and the kind of tuft that Martin used. Look up how to tuft leather upholstery. There should be lots of hits for that, Good luck :)

  • A Fun and Simple Wine Woodworking Christmas Gift

    Beautiful product and a great idea. I am wondering if tiny brass latches or similar would be appropriate for keeping the glasses from slipping out as you walk with it. Your build is gorgeous with the different woods but for a fast build and Christmas gift I bet any wood would look nice. Thank you for sharing.

    PVC & Duct Tape Kayak

    Great instructable for someone who doesn't know how to kayak :) It is a good looking build. One thing which people have to realize if they have't found out about duct tape yet is that it degrades. If you do make this kayak please inspect it routinely for degradation. I have no idea if the brand Duck Tape or the knock offs have been upgraded, so awareness of this is probably a good thing.

    Jason, Instructables is just trying to be responsible. With what is going on today I do not think they or the person who made this would want the instructions being that easily available to those that can modify it to be other than what it is intended for, recreation. Yes I DO understand that things like this can be Googled but you have to understand that not everyone is sane. BTW Garret that is an awesome "pea" shooter. Interesting to read the build and thank you for sharing :)

  • The Ultimate Drill Improvement Kit

    LOL now I have to find a store with a 3D printer. If not I have to figure a way to translate your design into another medium. Great design, I do not see how this will not work. Thank you for sharing :)

    I just emailed a Maker in a town near to me. As I was typing out the message I was thinking of your design and could not wonder if you will be making these to sell. I see no reason why if the Press is working well for you why you shouldn't be able to sell them ( also slap a patent on your design ). The Files you provide are appreciated but for those of us that do not know anything about 3-D printing just that it is an amazing tool and have to find some one who can do the printing your offering to make to sell would be a good thing.

    Self-watering Concrete Planter

    Hypertufa and cement both can leach lime into the soil of plantings in these types of pots. You can leach both by keeping the made planter outside filled with water and changing the water several times during the week for a few weeks so that the water goes through both mediums and leaches out the lime. Or if the pot is small enough you can submerge it in a bucket. With the cement pots you can also add a bit of sulfur to your plant watering liquid to keep the alkalinity down. p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Helvetica}p.p2 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Helvetica; min-height: 14.0px}I would also suggest adding a binder such as loose fiber used in cement slabs for strength and to keep the pot/s indoors in the winter if you do not use a binder.

    Leather Pencil Pouch With Elastic

    Well done! Thank you for sharing I made one similar a LONG time ago with lambskin (suede side ) which for me is softer and more forgiving to use. Instead of an elastic I use a stripped piece of the lambskin as a cord and tie it around the front cover of my hardbound sketchbook which I also covered in LS. This way I do not need to keep taking the holder off the book. I also used a piece of velcro and glue gunned it to the suede for the closure. I was also thinking we could use small heavy earth magnets for closures and to attach to front of a hardcover book :)

A truck or another car can hit you and you will be laid up for a long time..do you stop driving?? No you get back into your car and take one drive at a time and then make up your mind how you want to live your life. I think people should start taking responsibility for their actions instead of having to deal with those that talk about the dangers of living. I would rather die knowing I lived well than to die afraid of living, be well :)

    What a good person you are. I was thinking maybe to extend the seat a bit under her belly so that you have another place to use a velcro strap around her body. That way not all the pressure of the strap is on the spot that connects to her tail. Also make sure the back end doesn't touch or cover how she relieves herself that way she can adjust how she goes without interference. Just a thought. You might also want to rethink the size of the wheels as she grows. Watch her move in your prosthetic for her she will tell you what needs to be done. This will sound crazy but think like a cat not a human. Her Vet may also have some ideas because he knows her anatomy better than I do. Thank your friends for taking her in, and thank you for being so kind.

    Beautifully done Mr. Cranford, but you forgot to show one step, how you attached to the wall securely. Did you locate the studs first and then attach through the "lip" that you attached to the back of some of the shelves?? Did you also stagger the "lip" attachment on every other section or did you attach each section to the wall, or did you just use toggle bolts to attach and did not worry about the studs. Thank you for your taking the time to answer.

    Ring Out of Old Piano String

    Hello Dave, Great instructional. FYI, if you can find an old flat iron used to press clothes with a wooden handle you can take the handle off turn it over and use the flat part as your anvil. Make sure you can remove the whole handle also if you can't find a removable handle you can find someone that can remove it for you. This is what I have been using and it has been working well!!

    Hi David, I don't know where you are but I am in the States and at the time I only paid $5.00 for it. You have to look for the removable handle kind. I am pretty sure you will be able to find a removable handled one in an antiques shop so that you won't have to pay S&H. I found mine in a little hole in the wall shop. For a muffler I made a "pillow" for it out of leather and dry sand which helps very well with muting the sound. Wood will only amplify the sound unless you place the pillow on a small stump. Good luck and again thanks for the tutorial :)
