    Shoe Tubes

    Great idea!

    It isn't more efficient but it's certainly more of a fun way to keep your shoes, and prettier, and looks purpose-built, not just shelves diverted to the purpose.

    Thanks for sharing; I love your idea. I once used fabric tubes thrown out from a material shop to make a 1.8m standing lamp holder by gluing 12 different lengths of them together. (Get the idea?) However The hot glue only glues the surface of your big shoe-tubes so I think I'd prefer to add a couple of nuts and bolts for each join, if only for the 12 joins around the outside maybe?. Especially if you're like my family: we have dozens of shoes and keep them all until the soles fall off (literally!)

    Transfer Photograph onto Wood

    JPsW actually mentionned this in his introduction: you'll need to reverse the photo electronically beforehand. But a landscape would be lovely in reverse!

    What is Mod Podge? I'll need a description of it to buy its equivalent in France. Is it a kind of painter's varnish? What is it based on? Thanks for the great instructable!

    I Made a Toilet Tank Sink!

    I see now, and I am rightly corrected! Thanks! I love the idea and the way it is exposed.

    Thanks for helping me to understand. In fact it works exactly like the new French system in recent blocks of flats, but unfortunately not all of them!

    I Made a Toilet Tank Sink!

    That is brilliant. You're lucky to live in America where you can get those DIY products, and clever to try your hand with them successfully. In France we can find little sinks on top of toilets in the most recent flats and houses: their use is upside down to yours; you wash your hands and the soapy water is collected in the tank ready for flushing with. Same difference, but this way you don't get the hesitations about using water that has sat in the actual TANK for some time (I agree this water is clean, but somehow I understand people's hesitations. These may come from the fact that there are blue salt lumps you can place in the tank...? The closeness of the tank water to the drain...? The fact that people don't clean the inside of the tank...? Anyway, thanks for that!!!

    I think it's the other way around: the tank water is syphoned UP into the tap then dropped back into the tank after washing your hands. This is why the creator spoke about his friends hesitating about using water "from the toilet tank" which is understandable (the hesitating) though unjustified. I guess the hesitation comes from not being able to wash the insides of the toilet tank, and the fact that the inside of a toilet tank is matt, so easily invaded by germs, and not available for daily cleaning...

    Wow! of course! So that's why the holes had to be twice the diameter of the strings! I was too lazy to work it out for myself. Thanks! Any others?

    How to Make a Simple Duplicate Key

    Hi; thanks for that! I guess it might be a good idea to spray-grease the lock itself to prevent any stiffness first before you try your American Express key in it.

    Diy Leather Wedges

    Great work! The wedges of your old shoes were not solid cork, but moulded empty, probably not even real cork. So the tacks may not hold too well, but enjoy your great new shoes as long as they hold!!! (Maybe the previous producer wanted to make the shoes as light as possible?)

    No Budget Strawberries

    Thanks for that! I think I'll collect seeds from store-bought strawberries and keep them for next Spring. They'll be indoors all year - we don't have a garden! Your tips are easy to understand and nicely written.

    I like your tips but I just can't stand the touch of steel wool on my nails! It sets my teeth on edge, worse even than people walking around in socks on the carpet or wearing socks in bed...yuck! I may try the tips out with rubber gloves on...

    DIY Wedge Heels

    You may need to reinforce the underside of the wedge heels, because the soft wood wii be subjected to more than 100 lbs of pressure when you walk, in which case you can stick a cut-out of thick leather all along the underside, including the front part. Use dry-first leather glue, it sticks better.
