@phreddy - glue a yard stick to the curtain rod to the side or opposite of the channel to give you that extra inch or so.
Actually, I found this helpful in the fact it helped me see how the industrial world would accomplish something that I'd have to hack out a channel in a PVC tube or wood block. It would have been extremely cool to have cut the channel in a threaded pipe, so your wires would be kept even closer in length. I still don't envy your wire stripping task ahead of you....Did you make a jig and machine for that too?
Re: 12v to 5v - Any usb convertor for the car can do that. What's the amperage?
Nice! A hint - when drawing the lines around the initial cutout, I drive two drywall screws through the new board (but not into the corners, and only partway) just enough to help it grip the board while I do the tracing.
Cool! Is this just for home, or is it for in the car use?
Great instructable for us noobs! I have a small satchel project, that I intend to stitch together, then turn inside out. We're talking in a general size of a paperback, with the length of a woman's clutch purse, so not much room to work.Should I groove first, or should I heat gun into shape afterwards? (Or should I just use split grain leather?)
Re: Cast iron - A large amount of metal will better retain the oven's heat, keeping the oil at its hottest, plus placing cast iron on a low burner would fare much better than the flimsy pans of today. I may actually go buy some cast iron muffin pans just for this!
This one is a great stepping stone for other projects. Thanks!
Agreed. Simply take a screwdriver to the back, remove the electronic bits and modify as your needs demand.
Looks great and thanks for acknowledging the original designer! Helps everyone go out and search for similar or matching styles and forms.
Whoo Hoo! Nice job! Did you have to rerun many (or any) parts? What kind of printer do you have?
Vroooooom! That must rip through wood like nobody's business!What is keeping the belt from coming off? It looks like one swipe to the right and Pop! There goes the belt...?Perhaps I missed something in the photos?
LOL! It's had nearly 1,800 views, so *someone* has been looking at it!
Nice instructable! I appreciate your effort to put in words of safety as well! Lithium batteries are not friends to high temperatures.
Worth mentioning here - The "big box stores" do not always guarantee their cuts to be "accurate/precise." Ask the saw operator about this before you have the materials cut.
Yes, routers are very useful. If you already have a table saw, many of them have a hole in the tabletop to mount a router (upside down) which would be ideal for this task.
My grandfather made similar boxes! The hand holds were simple oval cut outs on the front and back. (1" bit, drill two holes at each end, then coping saw or jigsaw the straight lines between.) You do have to router both sides of the holes to smooth down the edges. He also used old coffee can lids, cut in half, as flaps, stapled inside, to cover the "inside" of the hand holds. This would stop the items from falling out through the hand holds, as well as protect your fingers a bit. (stapled only at the bottom edge, with curved edge pointing up.)
Pinchan, If you have proper network routing set up on both devices, this should be possible even over the Internet. It'd be too entailed to describe the steps here, and since I don't have an rPi to work with, I can't create an instructable to show you how. However, what you will need to do is to add a forwarding rule to your home Internet gateway/router, to point incoming traffic to your rPi.Ports to open:vnc-server 5900/tcp # VNC Servervnc-server 5900/udp # VNC Serverssh 22/tcp # The Secure Shell (SSH) Protocol1) permanently assign an IP address to your rPi, on the gateway/router. 2) Create forwarding rule to allow incoming addresses asking for port 5900 to be redirected to that permanent IP address and same ports. Note: This allows any monkey on the internet to poke your VNC s...see more »Pinchan, If you have proper network routing set up on both devices, this should be possible even over the Internet.

Note: This allows any monkey on the internet to poke your VNC services, so make sure you have passwords set up. You may have to do the same for port 22, or SSH. Again,if someone gets that password, they can take over your rPi, and try attacking everything on your home network too. You can tighten security by only allowing specific IPs to "come in", so make sure to learn how to do that once you have a working connection.3) From your rPi, Go to http://whatismyip.com/ to see what IP address from the "outside" you'd need to use on the "outside computer." When you are "inside" you would use the IP from step 1.rcochran5, In regards to the IP address details in the configuration of VNC, this interface is looking for IP:Display# , not IP:port number. VNC is a tool to allow multiple people to have separate virtual "displays" to interact with the VNC server. Each user has a definition, which includes the display numbers, in the example, it's display 1. Additionally, VNC can be changed to unique ports per connection.

Love the idea of a grill table! Not so sure about such small spacers between the grill and the wood. Probably ok, but I would check it often. Love the cover to make it a full table. I think it would be possible to make the grill body removable, for ash dumping and such. V2.0 perhaps?
Consider learning how to make sand castings. A bit more involved, and heat can ignite the oil in the sand, but you can be far more creative with your end results.
Looks great, and the 'ible was simple to follow!Question - How long did it take to do this?
If you are tethering a drone, then you should consider making the tether into an umbilical, providing power from the ground. 15 meters of cabling will not be light either, but may offset battery weight. Of course, extending flight time thanks to more power may overheat motors, but it would be fun to try.
However, "we" can say that about your sister, but it'd help if you posted photos (of your sister....)
