Rustic Herringbone Coffee Table
Sorry, I really don't know what to tell you. Making it to the homepage is pretty tough. Although almost all of my projects have been featured, only a few have made it to the homepage. Note that instructables has multiple outlets (Facebook, Tumblr, etc.) and your project still might be featured on one of these platforms. Each will give you a view boost if your project is selected. BTW, you could submit your instructable link to these sites independently. Another way to increase views is to share the link with family/friends and in your case outside Halloween and Special Effects forums. Lastly, know that the total number of views/votes isn't the deciding factor for contest finalists. Do a search on the forums and you will see where this topic has been discussed in depth. Good luck.
Nice job. I hope your dad likes it!
Very interesting! Do you print on the top side of the nut or is there a gap? I could see using this as floating hardware which solves some of the tolerance issues of 3D printing.

That looks awesome. Nice job! BTW, I've played that game way too much,
Plants Vs Zombies Gargantuar Zombie!
Nice job. My only suggestion would be to add the last 3 video files to youtube since most people don't want to download a file to view. It would also increase your exposure if you link back to instructables in the youtube description.
That's awesome...very artistic.
Nice job! BTW, there are a few low cost stain options available. Search for natural stain on instructables.
Both look like they were documented pretty well (writing and pictures). First project: You need to start with a video in the intro showing the prank. BTW, I thought the first image was a video...play arrow didn't help. Second project: You need a better title.
Thanks. Glad it worked out!
Pretty cool. I didn't realize a CNC would work on an irregular shaped pumpkin.
Thanks. I think I will try that next year.

Who can't like a snapping pumpkin?
Definitely looks creepy!
Nice idea. I like your swing mechanism.
Thank you. Maybe Tiki heads for a Luau :)
Those actually look pretty good!
I like it! That would be a nice project for a school art class.
I will never use/build this but now I know how to use my drill as a lathe. I learn something new everyday...Thanks!
I agree with yonatan with regards to the videos. However, I think you should do both the videos AND instructables. Cross-referencing each by embedding the video in the ible and adding a link to the ible in the YouTube description works nicely. There are a few reasons for doing this. First, you've already done most of the work. Set up a camera and film the build. When I say "most of the work", I'm referring to the design/concept for the project. Editing a video, adding text, music, etc. does take time. An easy and NOT recommended way to make videos is to just take your instructable pictures and make a slide show. I've done that occasionally - mostly post build.Second, by cross referencing, you are increasing your audience. As you probably know, many people go straight...see more »I agree with yonatan with regards to the videos. However, I think you should do both the videos AND instructables.

Have text early in the video that say "see description for detailed instructions" which links back to instructables. Lastly, you do make money from YouTube - look up Adsense. This might offset some of the issues people have from not winning contest. My videos are posted on my teenage son's account. Honestly, his YouTube channel is a mess of random stuff so it will never have a massive following. However, it does make money every single day - enough to pay for his car insurance. BTW, if you are a data geek, the YouTube/Google analytics are pretty impressive.
I agree with Brooklyntonia. I've often thought I might have a winner only to see that I wasn't selected. In the end, I've looked at the selected finalist and realized that they actually did have better ideas/projects. Also, I've judged quite a few contest and that task is quite time consuming. With that, I don't envy the team having to down-select finalist from 200+ ibles.
That's pretty cool. I'm not sure what I would use it for but I now have a desire to make it!
That was interesting! Nice job.
That's pretty cool. Nice job!
Nice job. How long did it take for your family/friends to solve it?
I agree :)

I like the project and I don't see any mistakes. I agree with the comment above - spend more time on the thumbnail.
Cool. I like the different types of wood.
Good catch. Unfortunately, I can't find the CAD file. BTW, the lengths are not critical - I think I cut them to fit while making the box. If you really need them, they can be easily backed out from the other dimensions.
Yeah, I just winged the pin length. This was one of my first woodworking projects so I was still in the learning stage. If I ever build it again, I will try to make it more of a puzzle. You could add multiple fake pins on the top surface. Read the comments below for suggested improvements.
I think it would be like any other tall bookshelf. Keep in mind, it will be pretty heavy. Therefore, you might want to consider anchoring it to a wall if you have small children that like to climb.
And who are you going to put in it? :)
It looks like the link was blown away. See if this works.
Cool little project. Nice job!
You are not getting my point. These stories convey what I'm trying to say.http://www.ibtimes.com/how-us-subsidizes-cheap-dru...http://fortune.com/2015/11/03/us-europe-healthcare...
Correct about the cost of epinephrine. I'm not defending Mylan, Turing Pharmaceutical or any other drug companies. Good or bad, my only point was that the US health care industry partially subsidizes Europe's health care costs. With that, drug companies will accept the lower negotiated prices in the UK as long as the US keeps paying the high rate.
I've always thought of it as the USA subsidizing the rest of the world when it comes to medical research. I feel the reason the UK, Canada, etc. can purchase medicine at low rates is because the development cost is covered by Americans. I bet if the USA followed the same policy, the flow of money into new research would dwindle. I'm not defending epipen or any other drug price. I just thought I would provide a counter to "social medicine" argument. Anyway, I think this is a cool project and I hope to see the innovative minds on instructables suggest lower cost alternatives.
Has anyone been able to solve it yet?
I see you like concrete :). Your featured pictures look really nice and you have a good presentation. Since they are similar, I'm not sure releasing all three on the same day was the best idea. However, it seems like at least one of them should have been featured.
Here is the initial concept
Thanks. It was about time to ditch the 1990s armoire. I'm now looking for a way to re-purpose it since you can't give them away.

Nice job. I wouldn't have thought of adding LEDs under the frame...pretty cool. Yes, you have to be willing to compromise when working with pallet wood.
Nice job! I like how you removed the screws. I noticed in the video that we both have the same issue with grabbing the base while turning the handle which is a little awkward. If I get around to redesigning it, I plan to make it so that the slides don't extend beyond the base during rotation.
