    Make a Spokeshave

    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.

    Image Transfer to Wood

    Spray a clearcoat, so the brush doesn't smudge the image.

    Magnetic Spice Rack

    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).

    How to salvage a DVD Drive For Free Parts

    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.

  • The Handiest Contraption You'll Ever Take Camping

    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.
