You are right! The schematic in the instructable was confusing, I now see that when in Constant current configuration, the resistor/POT will dissipate significant power. The LM317 works the same, except with only about 1.5A current limit. Probably a better part to use anyways. Thanks for the reply.

The leg machining looks a tad advanced, probably will go with PVC pipe instead and paint it black. Very nice instructable!
What a beauty! Wish I had a band saw and spindle sander! Kinda jealous.
(smart) By the look of your kitchen, you really need that storage. Bravo! But, actually, seriously cool idea!
I like the layout of your PCB, bridge in the middle! epic
did you etch the copper on the board?
