Thanks. I router bit is a good idea - saves you from filling the spade bit hole
Great tutorial. The videos were a nice touch.
Nice job and thanks for the idea! I used it for the Remix Contest. http://www.instructables.com/id/Large-Dominoes-Fro...

Nice job and good ideas on the build!
Not on my version. I can't get the two end pieces to fit as you have shown. Check your dimensions.
Not popcorn - popcorn shoots - see link
Hit the heart button at the top. There is also a vote button :)
I guess it depends on your reference. I visit quite a few woodworking forums and this would definitely be considered a beginner project to that group. BTW, I would consider myself to be an amateur woodworker at best. Although building this was tedious, it's actually not too hard if you have patience.
Thank you. I look forward to seeing your creation!
The container works really well. I plan to use it for lots of other shoot/sprouting for the next few months.
I just checked the price of these online...$67 for 4 ozs...ouch!
I don't think growing the hybridized popcorn to maturity will be productive because corn needs to mature all at the same exact time to get fully filled out ears. There would be differences in the maturity because the popcorn seed would have different genetics. Good luck spouting the sunflower seeds!
The corn shoots are edible and yes, it is very important to know what parts of plants are edible.
They taste sweet with a little grass/green flavor. I was surprised how sweet they were - popped popcorn to me does not taste sweet. They would be good in an Asian salad.
That was interesting. Nice write-up.

The code should work. I'm not sure how it is redeemed. Search the forums or contact the site admins.
just sent you a 3 month membership :)
All of the dimensions are in decimal format. I think I tried to keep everything in 1/8" increments so it would be easier to see on a ruler.
I like lazy (smart) ideas :)
It might help but it's pretty easy to see inside with a 13/16" diameter hole.
Update - I took the puzzle to work and had about 10 people try it. The solution times ranged from 1 minute to about 10 minutes. Seeing how people approached solving it was interesting. If you make your own, you might want to use smaller diameter dowels and tighter increments (say 1/8" vs. 1/4"). This will make it harder for someone to look into the base holes and judge the depth. You could also add more pins in-line or make a grid of pins.
Thanks. Yep, the end grain was bothering me. I gave it a light sanding and figured the paint would cover it. I applied about 10 coats of spray paint and I could still see it - ugh! Just look at the pretty CAD rendering instead :).
When you purchase wood, it comes in sizes such as such as 1x6, 2x4, etc. The actual size is different. Refer to this page for more info. Also, ["] refers to inches, while ['] refers to feet.
Thanks. Yep, this is definitely kid friendly since you will eventually solve it with trial and error. My previous dowel puzzle caused everyone fits.
I like the look. I just wouldn't want to walk under it - ouch :).
Thanks. It was fun figuring out the illusion.
It was a pain getting the holes to the correct depth. That's a good suggestion. Thanks!

I would slow down and try to fix the shortcomings before publishing. Sometimes a first impression is all you are going to get. Try to make the best of it :).
Thanks. I like the octagon shape. Very nice!
That is one nice looking desk. Nice job!
That's pretty cool. Nice job!
Thank you. Happy new year!

Thanks. It really doesn't have a use. The 2 pass versions are given names like "do nothing machines" or "bullsh*t grinders". See the intro from my previous version for more details - http://www.instructables.com/id/Trammel-of-Archimedes/
Cool project and nice job! I've used this tool on multiple projects and I'm very happy with the results. As pointed out below, strength of the joint could be an issue. One should take this into account if a significant load will be taken across the joint. For future reference, you can buy the Kreg knockoff from Harbor Freight for ~$52 ($65 - 20% coupon).http://www.harborfreight.com/portable-pocket-hole-...
But Kreg has "independent testing" that shows the joint is 35% stronger than the comparable mortise and tenon joint :).http://www.rockler.com/how-to/pocket-hole-joinery-...
Worked great. Thanks!
Gave you a shout out - see step 9 :)http://www.instructables.com/id/Simple-Bird-Feeder-1/

Good luck. The hardest part is the sliding portion. I had to do a little hand sanding to make to slide smoothly. Let me know if you have any questions.
The orange pieces are made from 2x4s.
Nice. The bolts are a cool touch.

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,

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.
