A great start! Lining up the circular saw cuts on both sides of the post can be tricky, but this lesson project is a great way to practice. Keep up the good work. Looking forward to your next lesson project!

This would totally take it to the next level!
Looks fantastic! Thanks for sharing.
Cinnamon works well, but so would any spice you like. Anjou is typically in season during winter, but any pear will work as long as it's ripe.

Excellent work! Thanks for sharing pictures. Are you going to make a partner for this serving fork?
That's a gorgeous slab you're working with, and using a hand plane will make you appreciate the table even more when you're done. Thanks for sharing. Looking forward to seeing it when it's done!

The negative colors really stand out, I like it!There's no other tips with hand tools other than going slow. A table saw would make short work of this, as the saw is stationary and you can guide the wood to exactly where you want the cut. For the tools you had, I think they came out great!
Děkuji za sdílení!Thanks for sharing!
Love that rustic look, and that's an attractive way to finish up the ends. Thanks for sharing!
Veľmi dobre! Môžeme vidieť zvyšok luku?Very nice! Can we see the rest of the bow?

The print would benefit from being cleaned up, but this lesson really made Fusion click for me.
Here's my print of the stamp from the tutorial, and a custom stamp design I tried on my own. Looks like I need to increase the shell thickness of my prints, but for an exercise I'm happy with the results.

Looks great! Now, get out there and start playing!
Looking good. Mitres are tough, but get easier with practice. Thanks for sharing!
It's all about the crust :)Glad it worked out, leftovers are the best!

Looking good. The addition of crushed glass is genius!
Looks great, and that top slab is gorgeous.
I love these reclaimed crate tables. What cuts did you make on this table?
Nice shelf. Did you do all the cuts yourself?
Great dice. Have you been outside to play yet?
Looking good! Glue really is amazing stuff.
When wood is laminated with glue, the glue is often stronger than the wood itself. These drawer fronts and door look amazing, and will be sturdy enough to last for years. Thanks for sharing!
Excellent work! Your compound cut on the 3rd rail really shows your understanding of miters and measuring. This staircase project is great, your daughter is really going to love her new steps to bed!
I like that design!
Learning how to use tools effectively takes time, but this project (and the yard dice) are great practice!These look really good. Whether for serving or just display, these will be a fine addition to your home. Now, on to the next lesson!
Pilot holes have prevented so many frustrating moments :)
Glad it was helpful! What are you building?
The skills learned are more important than the final results right now. Looking great!

The blue is really eye catching, nice work!
Kid tested and approved is the best kind of approval! Thanks for sharing.
The 4-way rasp has real bite and removes a lot of material faster than sanding. You can rough the shape faster with a rasp, then finish with sandpaper. Sanding past 120 creates a smoother surface the higher the grit you step up. This is very noticeable for harder woods than the construction grade lumber used in this project. Of course, it really depends on the project at hand, some projects require an ultra smooth finish and others just need to have the high points removed. I have an entire lesson on sanding in this class you should check out!
What a fantastic way to make a connection to your uncle's farm, and barn wood like that is a pleasure to look at. Thanks for sharing!
Nice work. It would make a great display base, good call. Do you know what you're going to put on it?
I love spoons with long handles like yours. Thanks for sharing!
Fantastic! Your got some really great results in your casting, so smooth. What's next?
I'd guess that your fence wasn't straight to start with, making the cuts curved. In some instances you can overcome this by glue and lots of clamps when you assemble the pieces together. I'm not going to mention anything about proper footwear in the shop :)
Bottle Lock Part 2: Mechanical Assembly
Bottle Lock Part 1: Base Model
I made some assumptions on lock dimensions, since I don't have one on hand to take measurements from. Am running into issues with Enable All Contact, as my model won't operate with that engaged. Without any obvious barriers, I'm hoping this will resolve when I print.
Good tip for extending the life of those gaskets. Thanks for sharing!
Tools and Materials
Once all the paint is removed / dries I water the garden.
This looks great! The instruction given is to walk through the entire process to understand the steps. If you're comfortable with doing all those drilling steps in one, all the better!
Looking good! Bedtime browsing has never been better. :)
These look great! Maybe even better than mine....?!
Excelente! Seus miters se encaixam muito bem.Well done!
If this is your first mitre you did a great job! Miters are difficult to master, and only get easier with practice. This lesson has an additional layer of difficulty becasue of the additional bevel on the inside of the frame, too. The plate in the back is a good choice. The real solution for mitres is to add a spline between the corners to reinforce the joint, but that's an advanced technique we'll cover later. The magnetic not pad is a super idea!
Those are some good looking dice! Have you played any games yet?
Looks like you have the perfect yard in the background of your picture for playing!
You can do multiple dips without waiting for it to dry, you will need to add some more paint before dipping.I don't see why you couldn't leave the water in there. Any leftover paint might contaminate your next batch, so if you're doing drastically different colors best to make sure you've cleaned up as much as you can.I stopped at 180 grit as there wasn't a need to go further, I just wanted to remove the clear coating on the board before dipping. Since the paint globs onto the surface there's not much use in having a super smooth starting surface, since you'll be sanding the globs away after it dries anyway. I'd love to see your results when you try this!
Tools + Materials for 3D Printing
No prior experience with Fusion. Followed along and was easily able to replicate your star stamp.Without referencing the lesson I tried again on my own, attempting a custom shape for the image. I couldn't get the chamfer working, but I think that's because the geometry was too tight in some areas. We'll see how the details of my stamp print out...

Parece que você está aprendendo muito. Você e Lucas estão muito bem nessas lições.Thanks for sharing these pictures!
Looking good, Lucas! Hiding the magnet with a mix of glue and sawdust is very clever. You and Ivan are doing very well. Looking forward to your next lesson project!
It does look much better than before. Great work!Did you drill a pilot hole in the wood before attaching the hanger? That would help with the wood splitting.
Looks like you totally understand the process, and you've got a great result. The additional use as a back-scratcher is very smart :)
Eu ficaria feliz em ter sorvete servido com isso. Grande construção!
Those look like laser etched pips, nicely done!
Cracking on the finish is usually caused from improper adhesion to the paint layer, or because the material you dipped is flexible and paint/finish cracks and chips off. Does this match your findings? After dipping the paint is allowed to dry completely. Then I applied an off the shelf acrylic finish to protect the wood, waiting about 30 minutes between coats.
After the paint is on the water surface you dip the piece face down into the paint until completely submerged. The surface is then disturbed to move any leftover paint on the surface away and then the piece is brought up out of the water.Depending on how much paint you add to the water surface and how it coagulates the paint can be bumpy or smooth (sometimes both).Here's a direct link to the video. Apologies for the skateboard not being in the entire project. I shot and filmed this alone and you only have once shot to do a dip. I chose to show the skateboard in the video as it's more dramatic, leaving the pictures to scrap wood to illustrate the technique.
I suppose marbling is the technical term for this technique as hydro dipping is for applying printed graphics, however I think in most DIY circles you could call this hydro dipping and people would understand. Thanks for clarifying!Even though I did this project, I had not made the connection on how they made paper using the same technique. Today I learned...
The board is in the water for seconds and the entire deck is impregnated with epoxies from manufacturing, there's not much chance from water damage.
