well done! I think that your ARC reactor is one of the best ones I have seen. The wire wrapping is an nice added touch, the more detail you add, the more realistic the unit will be! You deserve to be given lots of attention for this project because the effort you put into it and the overall effect it has!

I have a screen from my mother's old Laptop, and it would be perfect to make one of these! Thanks so much for the 'ible!
It would be nice to have a nice sultry voice to say special Phrases that match a number of sayings for the screen. That would make it great for my wife. Now if I could just get Benedict Cumberbatch to be the voice of the Raspberry pi then I could sell millions of these! My wife would be Customer #1 ! LOL
I intend to distill catnip for the purpose of creating insect repellant, since I am Immunosupressed due to a liver transplant, I need to keep away ffrom Mother Nature's flying dirty needles! With the small amount of distillate that you have created, how much repellent would that create? I have no idea what the concentration level I would need to create so that I could use it as a spray repellent. Do you have any ideas on that?
Wow! These look great! Keep up your talent, and take it as far as you can! You have a gift....use it and make it earn you a living. I would love to see what you can do in five years!
Yes, actually. Google it. Catnip contains nepetalactone, which is 10 times more effective as a mosquito repellant than DEET. DEET disolves car paint! I used it every day when I was a teenager riding with my dad for work, and it softened the paint on the inside door sill where I always rested my arm, to the point I could scrape it off with my fingernail and it would take it right down to the metal! If you use a lab still and a hydro bath condenser, you can harvest the oils from the cat nip, and add it to a cream or a water spray and use it that way. Just growing catnip and rubbing it on yourself will not work. It's really not that hard, you just need to know the basics and have the components for a lab still. :)
Ah...but did you destill it and concentrate it using a hydrobath condenser? Once you capture the unadulterated, concentrated form of catnip, I'm not sure if it's an oil or a hydrous solution of some kind, but deet has been proven to be 1/10 as effective as DEET. My previous number was wrong, I had mis-remembered. Google it, I'm gonna try and find the lab aparatus I need to harvest the Nepetalactone ( the essential oil in catnip). I need to keep away from Mosquitos as much as possible, I'm immunosuppressed. That way I can keep away from Mother Nature's dirty needles!
I've been doing this kind of thing with bacon and eggs for years, but I must admit I never thought of mushrooms and spinach! What a great idea! Gonna make it! :)
This is perhaps one of the most beautiful little "chest of drawers" I have ever laid eyes on! Your inginuity and execution are amazing! Whoever you made this for....I bet they show it off every chance they can get. Have you entered this item into carpentry contests? If not I urge you to do so, this is that good of a project! You must have many years of carpentry experience.
Years ago my mother and sister had gone on a trip, and they had an incident that made them need fire to be able to cook and eat something, and from then on My Mother has asked me to make sure I have a fire kit in my car. I always do! These are a great labor day gifts for us Canadians, since that's when our winter usually starts! making your own fuel is actually a better idea because you know how they work and can make more as needed with only minimal supplies. There are other instructibles that teach how to make your own longer burning fuels to make sure your fire get started!

A friend oof mine used to take Garlic capsules, one every day during insect season, and he swore by it, and I did notice that he suffered FAR fewer bites than I did, when we went fishing. I live in Canada, and I can tell you that the Mosquitoes in the North are the territory's official Bird! We tried to use AA installations to control the Mosquito population, but last year they flew off with one of our guns, so we have abandoned this idea! LOL Seriously though there are a number of herbs that work as a mosquito repellant. The most powerful of them I have heard, is actually Cat-Nip! If you own cats, though, that would be a serious problem. Cat-nip in it's concetrated form, is on order of 100X more effective than DEET!
Sleek Word Clock
Nice! Great use of lights and switches! Well done!
I love this I have always wanted one of these when I was a kid. to see it built with 3D printing is just great, to know that we can make such things in the comfort of our own homes is wonderful! I just have to say one thing. Your planets are rotating around the run in the Wroong direction. All of the planets in our solar system revolve around the sun in a COUNTER-CLOCKWISE direction. Venus and Uranus are correct, but the other planets are incorrect. However, since I didn't go through all the pain and trouble of making this, so I have no idea how much more complicated it would make this model. Having two of the planets rotate in the opposite direction.....how would that be done? Still an excellent model!

I wish I could afford to do this, My kids would gobble this thing right up!! I have a Raspberry Pi 2B it will still do the job right?
You can use the wax to help with the egg. After you blow it out, seal one end with wax, then fill the egg with water and then seal the other hole, and then it will sink to the bottom of your dye can. You can use a few drops of vinegar to erase the spots where the wax plugged the holes later when the eggs is finished. Nice work Phemy! The eggs look great!
Can a Raspberry Pi 2B handle this build? That's all I have right now and I was trying to make it into a master system that plays EVERY retro game out there, regardless of the system it came from. I haven't been able to build it properly so I would be happy to make it play ANY Sega game ever!!!!! Sega was pretty much the leader in games anyways.
Mastering the 2016 Published Original KFC Recipe Copycat
I really Like the one with all the divets you put into it! That one looks the nicest. I do agree with Jeanluc83, when he says gluing in the pen insert will cause difficulty in the future. There are Many different pen refils out there, and they would serve much better. But this is the whole idea behing the instructibles! Someone posts their project and another can make it in the way THEY want to! Great job Alex 2Q! I really want that diveted one! gonna have to try making one now! Thanks!

Fresh made bread is always great, especially from a Bakery! Cultural based businesses are fabulous ways to try out food from other cultures, and maybe find a new favorite! Thanks!
Menonite Classic White BreadView Instructable »
The biggest problem with baking your own brread is that it tastes so good, that it never lasts! I have to bake bread in larger batches because my children will devour at least two loaves within 24 hours maybe three! LOL Great recipe Darthorso! I hope you win the contest!
The quality of the Flour makes a HUGE difference in the bread. Freash milled flour is great. My Family bought an electric Steel grain mill, so that we could all use it when we need. Each of the Children's families have a food storage, and included in that storage are sacks and sacks of Wheat, ready to be ground up! Man that is some good bread! It's funny what each culture uses for their baking. You mention olive oil, but my family never had any real access to olive oil, way back in the day, so we used what we had lots of, and that was Butter or Lard. You'd be pleasantly suprised how good a loaf of bread Lard can make! however, we used butter most times.
Of course, you're correct! I have some old Stainless steel piping used in an old Dairy Farm. It's clean and was only used for water. I couldn't imagine using a steel pipe that maybe might have been used as a oil pipe for an engine or something like that! Yuke! you'e never get that stuff out! LOL
Once again, well done! The carving on the barrel of the scoop finishes the tool off. It's a fine piece of work, and I'm envious of all the tools people have that they can make all this stuff! I have Some tools, but Not the kinds that would allow me to make this water scoop. I had a friend here that was from Finland and he was a great friend! A great guy, and I've met others as well. Finlanders are an awesome bunch of people! I'm also especially glad to hear how your nation absolutely SPANKED the Russians during the second great war! Proving quality beats out Quantity every time!!! ;)
Great work! I really like the scoop, I think I would use it more in the kitchen, but it looks great! I like the engraving you've done as well! What did you use to engrave the scoop? A small rotary tool?
There are special tools turners use, that can make it possible to get sometimes three and four bowls from a larger peice of wood. They exist, and they are expensive, but they can make a set of bowls from the same blank. Don't know the name of them though. Try Lee Valley tools, they carry all kinds of wood turner delights!

Nice Job! My Great Grand Father was a traditional Blacksmith, I wish I could have learned some of the skills he had! Unfortunately I am not physically able to do such things. But I love watching others use Blacksmithing skills! I've gone to blacksmith competitions just to watch them hammer and heat! Great work and thanks for the 'ible!
I was watching your video and was tearing down a moninter I took from my Mother's old laptop. I think I might want to use it as a screen for a blue-ray disc drive from a PC! Great Idea Mate! Thanks for the push! Soon My children won't want to try using my computer, they'll want the gadgets I make!

5 Times The Trash to a Single Treasure Knife (54TASTK)
Nice set of stitches dude!!! I've sliced my hands open so many times, I could have taught myself the complete anatomy of the Human hand without any help from a professor! Consider it a beauty mark from living the Life of a Man who loves tools! Great work on the knife BTW! The most important part of the knife is it's edge, keep your knife sharp and it will never let you down when you really need it!
I wish I had seen this instructible over the summer, I replaced the front rotos on My wife's car and they weren't cross-drilled! I could have made at least three from each rotor! I could just go to a mechanic shop and ask for an old brake rotor, they'll show you to the scrap metal bin, where you can find a glut of brake rotors of various sizes and shapes. I think I need to talk to a friend who owns a Lazer cutting business, He could cut the knife blanks out in a jiffy, and you could maybe create a few designs and get to work with building some "prototypes" of knives that no one else will have!
Room air analyzer
I do not have the equipment to build this exceptional piece of technology, but the implications of this device are staggering! I have seen technology that was so much fantasy. None of it was real, and now, we can build a tractor beam at home with just a few circuits and some parts from on-line! Thank you for posting this, thanks for sharing your work! I can say that I have seen many things that were simple fiction, come to reality. However, a Tractor Beam? That's totally AWESOME!

I'm in the process of making one of these for my wife! I like your pattern, it has a nice appeal to it. Mine is more Squarish. I voted for you because i like Crocheting and your project seems to be the most useful. :)
Well done! You earned my vote. I see people entering this contest with concrete, cake a fondant, I think there is even and entry with papier mache. They all missed the title of this contest, and it is CLAY. I love your design and you obviously have Talent, so I hope you win the top prize because I know I want the top prize!! Good Luck!
