  • ThirdEarthDesign commented on AdamF138's forum topic Bay window seating question15 hours ago

    A freestanding bench will be fine, just build a frame similar to the one in the photo (build it to fit the shape of your bay). Use some wooden panels to trim/finish the sides that are visible, cut a solid piece of MDF or ply to make the seat on top (add padding and upholstery to give it a comfy finish).You can also add some hinged doors to the front or just hinge the whole seat to make it double up as a storage box.

For example, I can buy 100 baby nappy sacks that are fragranced for £0.50p, yet 60 un-fragranced dog poo bags are £1.65, both are bio-degradable.And as an example of brand difference, when a friend needed a replacement part for his Land Rover (I forget what the part was) it was priced extortionately by the lovely people at Land Rover.

  • There's a general appetite for appealing to the masses, which is understandable, so it's in everyone's interests to keep things relatively broad. Making contests more open widens the appeal, plus it makes more people feel like they can get involved and have a chance of winning.But even with that in mind, maybe they could run a challenge with stricter criteria and just see what happens.

    View Topic »
  • I think I understand where you're coming from, it could lead to a more focussed set of entries, but if the criteria is too narrow it would probably result in too many similar projects being published.I think there is a certain charm to having the broad variety we see currently, but I have no doubt that the occasional specific contest would be a good thing.

    I wouldn't say anything is wrong, it's been featured so congratulations!

    I like a good intro that covers the motivation and explains the what and why, so tick! You've included a video, it has good clear photos, parts list includes links and the steps are pretty clear and straight forward.If I was being really picky I could say some of the steps can be formatted a little better, but each step is short enough for it not to really matter.Good work and congratulations on being featured.

    It's a nice item but the Instructable is heavily dependent on the video instructions. Ideally video should be used to compliment written step-by-step instructions and pictures. You can also check out the featuring guidelines to get an idea of what the editors look for:http://www.instructables.com/community/Featuring-C...

    A simple yet effective solution to a problem, I like it.My only suggestion would be to add a short description of what a dutch oven is to the intro.

  • ThirdEarthDesign commented on XxsonicxX's forum topic Best vedio game4 days ago

    Seeing the Call of Duty series on so many lists here is making me cringe!! What's going on?!? I play them (quite often), but in no way are they worthy of best ever status.The best gaming platform is the PC, no argument!! But if you have to choose a best ever console, it has to be the original Playstation as it brought gaming to the mainstream (though lets be honest, the ability to modchip it and play pirated games was a big part of its success). I prefer the XBox in the current generation, no matter how frustrating it is.Best game ever has to be Unreal, ground breaking and genre defining. Doom and Quake are also right up there. Other favourites of mine include the Command & Conquer series, X-Wing, The 7th Guest, Tetris and Elite.

But who knows what they'll conjure up in the LHC at CERN (either accidentally or intentionally).Maybe we should clarify that we are using he as an indefinite pronoun, before we get accused of sexism.And sorry to nit-pick, but while you can maybe argue that Genesis is detailed on how God created the world, it is rather vague on how he created the Earth (Earth and World are not strictly the same thing), and the creation of Earth was the original question.I think we may have to politely agree to disagree.

    I know that feeling, I'm working on three projects at the moment, two of which are perfect for some of the contests currently running but I won't get them done in time. I won't rush them either though, if it's not ready, it's just not ready. I won't publish an I'ble until I'm satisfied it's good enough. I'd always recommend getting it as close to right as possible the first time around as oppose to major edits or a total re-write, first impressions are everything.

    While I feel uneasy about anything that has the potential to be used to cause harm, just a few points.. While the title image is fine, it could be awesome!When writing lists of items such as your "Tools and Materials" step, consider using the "unordered list" (aka. bullet points) tool from the edit toolbar (see image).Try to include an image on every step, you'll struggle to be featured otherwise.In Step: 2 you mention "Apoxy", presumably you mean "Epoxy" or am I missing something?Finally, as this is a modification of one of your existing I'bles, consider writing a short piece about the original Instructable in the intro and include a link to it there as well.

    I haven't had a chance to read the whole Instructable in detail yet, but one of the things that may have prevented it being featured is that not every step has an image, I believe this is one of the things the editors look for. Also it's a fairly complicated build, but the title image is the only photo of the finished item you've included. It might be worth adding some extra photos of it with close ups of the finished circuit.

    Don't read too much into that one sentence, you'll find I'bles for anything from simple knives to battle axes, throwing knives and all sorts of other potentially dangerous things. I just meant that it's not for me personally, after-all even a ball-point pen can be dangerous in the wrong hands. I don't see any need for you to do anything drastic, at most I would maybe add a safety warning :-)

    Hopefully the first of many for you, keep up the good work! I also liked your Beaded Glasses made from the speaker grills, they look cool. Glad you liked the TD project :-)

    Are we talking about heat in the devices heating element or in the circuitry / wiring? If the heating element exceeds a set temperature there will be a built-in thermal cut out on any device that is built to decent minimum standards imposed by the nation's safety regulatory body.If we are talking about heat in the wiring / circuitry as a result of a fault, every electrical device in the U.K. is fused at the plug as well as fuses that are included in the circuitry, I'd expect this to blow before any major issues arise.

    +1 usually anything that has a heating element will have a thermal cut-out for safety reasons (otherwise it catches fire!) but the quality of safety built-into devices depends on the country where they are manufactured and sold (i.e. what safety standards they must comply to). The temperature sensing would occur inside the device not at the wall socket.

Unfortunately, mess attracts mess. An elegant solution to this problem already exists, as shown in the photos. In place of large wheelie bins on street level there are more modest litter bins, but these empty into larger wheelie bins that are situated below ground. On bin collection days they are raised above ground level and the large bins are emptied, then lowered back under ground.This system has already been trialled and implemented in many parts of the world, including Spain, Australia and the USA. But let's be clear that this isn't necessarily a system of centralising waste in a community to a single location, it primarily reduces the eye-sore of large scale waste bins without reducing the waste capacity, thus achieving your goal.

    Agreed, unfortunately a lot of people are generally lazy and some are all too willing to leave rubbish on their own doorstep. Fly tipping will still occur at the "waste house", and those unwilling to make the walk through wind, rain and snow will just litter the streets regardless.

    First thing I've noticed is that you've asked for feedback on the same project at least three times, this may irk some people as it could be considered rude. Remember that a lot of the feedback offered in the clinic is by fellow Instructable authors who are volunteering their time to help, so be patient.With regards to the Instructable, some of the steps could benefit from better images and more writing in some of the steps wouldn't do any harm, there's also the occasional typo/double-typing of letters in words if I was being really picky. In the steps that provide code you should consider using the "code" text type in the editor, but otherwise a perfectly good Instructable.
