That case is beautifully reminiscent of 1980's Coleco's Electronic Quarterback (and similar sports games).
Rather than cutting the tape with your scissors, try simply folding it where you want it cut. It should break fairly cleanly. Holding it with needle nose pliers where you want it to break might be a good idea. Tape measures are made from hardened spring steel, which breaks quite readily (this is often what happens to tape measures for them to end up in the project bin) This also makes them horrible for scissor edges! Similarly, mitering the corners can be done by gripping the corner with pliers and snapping it off. Sandpaper will clean up and rough edges or sharp corners.
Lovely bench. For those commenting on the sturdiness of the design, one way to remove some of the springiness while still maintaining the cantilevered design would be to change the angles of the braces to a shallower angle. It would add some complexity/layout to the joinery, but angling one brace to the leg, then angling the second brace to join into the first brace would beef up the design for more abusive applications.

Unlikely on the heat blanket. PVC's melting temperature is around 160 °C (320 °F), which would be dangerously hot for an electric blanket/heating pad (which are normally intended for direct skin contact).https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polyvinyl_chloride
Unlikely on steam bending. PVC melting temperature is around 160 °C (320 °F). Steam isn't going to get much hotter than 100 °C (220 °F) without being under pressure.
Tool holders, towel racks, grab bars, truck rails, bumpers or landing gear for RC cars/quadcopters, custom hula hoops, marble machine pipes, Archimedes screw pumps, etc., ad nauseum...

OMG! And the dimensions are in Arabic numerals! *giggles*
The great thing about building it yourself is you can customize the dimensions to suit your needs. A pair of adjustable furniture levelers under the front feet would also allow you to adjust the table height relative to the seat height.
They're at the bottom of the plans PDF file. (last ~half of the document)
It's a myth that chiggers burrow into the skin. They don't, so 'smothering' them with a seal of nail polish is also fictitious. Whether nail polish relieves itching from a chigger bite is the question.
A cheap (dollar store) turkey baster can work as a siphon pump. Add a piece of plastic hose to get into smaller places.
Use aluminum foil (or cut up an aluminum can with scissors) to fashion a custom spout to direct the oil. Some mowers come with a plastic spout for this purpose that gets easily lost/never worked right anyway.

It's hardly impractical if you need a metal brake.
I disagree. The idea of an Instructable is to instruct on the processes and methods behind projects. Many people already have many of the tools listed. If you don't have a specific tool, there might be an Instructable on how to make one of those, as well.
Spray a clearcoat, so the brush doesn't smudge the image.
Try looking on Amazon or eBay for larger, bulk quantity purchases? Michael's is geared to smaller, craft-sized quantities (with their associated packaging and markup).I see a quantity of 100 6mm by 1.5mm neodymium magnets from China on Amazon for under $10. (I'm not linking to it, since I'm not advertising for anyone specifically.)
Adding some silicon dioxide (anti-caking agent) to your garlic powder might help prevent clumps (it's how the spice industry does it). Also, possibly adding something non-magnetic (such as a glass marble) might give you more 'clump-busting power' when shaking the grains loose.https://www.americanspice.com/silicon-dioxide/"Simply Organic" brand garlic powder is more coarsely ground than many "garlic powders" and is less prone to clumping. I buy it by brand specifically because of this fact (I don't care about 'organic' labels).
You could use a block of material with a hole to match the thread. Then drill a hole through the center for a screw with the point filed down to match the profile of the thread. The point of the screw will follow the thread. Accuracy is your friend.
If you were to attach a small piece of wood with a hinge to the top of the device so the other end rested on top of the paper towels, it would prevent them from unrolling in a breeze and you wouldn't have to fight with the bungee every time you wanted a towel.
