Very cool project!
Your welcome and thank you, I look forward to your next write up.
Excellent write up! You explain everything so well I always feel I can totally do this. Thanks!
This is a great desk simple and attractive design. Nice work.
I'll make sure to shine it up and post a pic.
Another great write up! The crucible is genius too. Can't wait to see what you do in December. I would love to see you make mokume gane, I made some awhile back from some quarters that came out okay. Look forward to your next write up.
Thanks! So you are the guy that has that handle. LOL! I'm Dan_the_maker_man on Instagram.

Thank you for your comment. I did think about the lights but couldn't find any for outdoor use just the white lights. I was actually thinking about using some red lights in the eyes but want to make sure I can make it safe for the outdoors.
Awesome, as for the oven goes as long as the blade is clean she will never know you used it. I didn't mention this in the write up but the pan I have the blade sitting on is from the dollar store. So you don't have to use one of the "good" pans either.
Thanks, I keep fining old saw blades around my shop its like they are multiplying.
Its a very rewarding build.
I don't see why not I would chose a picture that made it look like the skull is coming through the wall though. Basically make it look like it is coming out of the side of the house. Instead of the full skull do a partial skull peeking through a giant "crack" in the wall. And maybe the skeleton hands breaking through as well. I would show you what I mean but that level of drawing is beyond my ability.
Thanks I appreciate it.
I did a quick google search for "skull peeking through" and found these images. I think something like this might look cool.
Thanks I appreciate it!
I didn't have all the ingredients so I used mini marshmallows for the white parts and melted semi sweet chocolate for the dark details. My kids loved them. Thanks for this post.
These are sooo awesome! My kids love my chocolate chip cookies this will definitely take them to another level. Thanks for the write up.
Thanks. My next instructable will be how to build a fence. ;-)
They are just screwed to the front fence. But I will add a picture
It was a fun build for sure. If you are up for it go for it I have already gotten a great response from some of my neighbors.
I live on a corner and my street has a stop sign that most people ignore or just roll through. Lately they have been stopping so I guess it has more purpose than I originally thought it would.

Thank you very much for your comment.
Thank you glad you enjoyed it.
Cool glad you enjoyed it. If only I could work that fast in real life. :-)
Good info thanks.
I love your take away from this Instructable. You hit the nail on the head summing this up.
Thanks man. Dude I just noticed you had a new write up on forging a blade. I started reading it and one step in and I already feel more knowledgeable. I wish Instructables had a notification for when people I follow had a new instructable published. Thanks for the tips! I'll keep those in mind for next time.
Great tip! Annealing would have made it a lot easier to work for sure.
Japanese Style Blade Forging
Excellent write up tons of info. Would love to someday try forging. I think you have seen my two brick mini forge any advice or suggestions for small projects that I could make in that forge? Also to make the question that more difficult to answer I don't have an anvil either just a large vise with the small "anvil" portion in the back that's about 3 inches square. Thanks keep up the great work.
Thanks for the compliment, I'm very much new at this and appreciate any advice.
I thought about doing something like that but decided against in the end. I just wanted something looked nice and clean. Check out this instructable I wrote http://www.instructables.com/id/Bottle-Opener-From-Table-Saw-Blade/ its incorporates the teeth of the saw blade.
That sounds like an awesome knife, this build gave me a whole new appreciation for my power tools. I love all my sanders.
I hear a lot of guys say that the old saw blades were better which I have no experience with never come across one so I can't give my opinion. Not sure if you watched the video but in the beginning of my video I cut a piece off a saw blade and heat treat it and quench it. Then I chuck it in to my vise and snap it in half with a pair of vise grips. I also run my file across it which confirms that the steel is able to be hardened. While I have no misconceptions that it is the best steel to use for making a knife it is usable steel.

Dude you are killing it. This is an awesome Instuctable. I just started dabbling in knife making and would love to make something this size in the future. Also would really like to see the blade forging for your next topic. I made sure to vote for you in the Wood contest.
