Metal Etching - How to Make a Man's Visiting Card
This is really neat and your instructions are easy to follow. I really like the musical theme with both clefs too so I'm going to try and make mine the same. I still need to find some glass but I had trouble finding that porcelain varnish from Marabu, that website was down but appears to be back up now but I still can't find that ceramica varnish. Anyway since I couldn't get on the side or find it anywhere else ordered some liquitex clear gloss varnish from the techna glow site where I bought the powder. Do you think that would work okay?Thank you for posting this!

Thank you for the easy to follow instructions and great video! I made this for my M-I-Ls 75th birthday and she loved it! Now I am making another one for my wife and I'm sure I will make a few more. Everyone I show is very impressed and really likes the lamp. It was SO EASY to make! You are amazing, thanks!
Layered Sculpture Lamps
Bent Veneer Wood Lamp
in case you haven't found any yet I just got these on Amazon and I'm going to use them in the next lamp I'm currently building. I will post some photos of it when I'm done. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01HTE1FY4/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apap_7UyKiddx8Ygeo
So I'm currently making two of these right now and I wanted to share a really easy way for making the hollowed-out space in the concrretr base. I couldn't find that foam that you used and so I decided to use those foam beer can koozie holder things. They were only like a dollar and already put together, I just had to tape over the little hole in the bottom but they seem to work really good! I will post some photos once I have the lamps complete, hopefully by this weekend. Thanks again I really love this idea and my mom's going to love the one that I'm making for her too!

Hey Emmett, I am sorry, I didnt even see this message until now! Bu unfortunately, I was mixed up with another set I bought. The LED lights I have with solar have little globes about 3/4" in diameter and the ones I have in the style he uses here are hardwired. Here is a link to the solar ones, they are completely different but I might try them to see how they look. I am going to start building my lamp tomorrow. Once again, sorry for taking so long to reply!

I actually bought a set of the small LED's like that that come with the solar panel attached, I would be happy to share the product link, if you are interested feel free to message me.
This is so cool! Very impressive! Thank you so much for sharing! I am DEFINITELY going to make at least 2 or 3 of these!
Yes, I bought a string of LED's like that on Amazon which have a little PV solar panel and I want to say they were only like $6-8
Oh good question, I didnt think about fogging. Do you mind if I ask what part of the country you are in? I am in the Seattle area and we get *just a bit* of moisture around here! But am I fine with keeping it inside too!

I FINALLY FINISHED IT! Thanks for posting this original Instructable and especially for the follow-up instructions and video. I was able to complete it with the 2nd instructable alone but the video was really helpful to verify that I was doing it correctly. I sure hope my son loves it as much as I do!Thank you NizzyAmps and have a Merry Christmas!!!
From Schematic to Protoboard - Building a simple LM386 Guitar Amp on a DIP Protoboard
Here are pics of my progress so far.
This Instructable along with the video is fantastic! So easy to follow along and complete the work. Now I am able to make more sense of the schematic since I can relate to the circuit configuration now.I am just to the point of connecting the input jacks - I ran out of butane for my soldering iron so I have a slight delay. All my tests to this point have been successful but one concern I have is the size of my capacitors and resistors. Some of mine are a lot larger in size than the ones you use. For instance my 100nf and 47nf caps are the same size or larger than the 386 chip, and the 1k resistor is quite large too. So I think the wattage/voltage rating of my parts is way bigger than it needs to be? I think the caps are 630 volt (they are like the size of a square of gum) and I want to ...see more »This Instructable along with the video is fantastic!

I think the caps are 630 volt (they are like the size of a square of gum) and I want to say the 1k resistor is 250 watt? I am not at home so I will have to look later to be sure. But that 1k resistor is probably 1/2" long and 3/16" Ø. Like I said, everything seems to test fine but will this make a difference in operation? I didnt see wattage or voltage specified in the parts list but I am wondering if I should reorder some smaller parts and redo the circuit?Thank you SO MUCH for your willingness to help and also for taking the time to make the additional video and instructable. I am nearly done and I AM SO EXCITED to give it to my son!!
You crack me up - too funny! This is a great step by step! Thank you so much! I will post some pics of my work once I am complete. Thanks again and Merry Christmas!
Ok, I will check it out! THANK YOU!!!
Cool! You are SO AWESOME! Thank you NizzyAmps! YOU ROCK!!
Thanks For your help! I bought the Radio Shack board that you listed. I bought everything exactly as listed.

Speaking of 'woefully ignorant"... I have all my parts but I just have absolutely NO CLUE where to start. I have been watching videos and reading articles to learn how to read an electronic schematic but I am completely lost. I have also been staring at the photos of your board and the others posted here but still just clueless and have no idea where they connect on the backside of the board. Can anyone suggest a good starting point for me to learn the basics on how to read the schematic or where to start on building this board? I REALLY want to build this for my son but the only thing I have a shred of confidence about is drilling the hole and screwing on the lid ring - beyond that.... deer in the headlights....standing on the yellow divider in the middle of a rainstorm....
Hi, I am located in the Seattle area. Yes, I saw their post with the weblink and I am not opposed to ordering from overseas but it just kind of felt like I was cheating or something? More like I was just assembling something vs actually building it - does that make sense? Kinda silly since I am basically just assembling anyway by following your instructions... I dont know. That would be great if you were willing to provide another step by step but I dont want to create more work for you - you have been really great responding to questions from everyone here. I dont mind doing the 'legwork' and research to learn on my own I just feel like I dont know where to start and letting it intimidate me. I did order a little 'DIY circuit kit' on Amazon hoping that would give me a little experience...see more »Hi, I am located in the Seattle area.

I did order a little 'DIY circuit kit' on Amazon hoping that would give me a little experience to get going, hopefully it will be here in a day or two. Plus I watched a couple videos tonight after I commented so with those and your advice to go one step at a time and test along the way I am feeling a bit better. So I will keep hammering away to learn and then if anything just experiment since I did buy spare parts. And any extra info you are willing to provide is MORE than welcome! Thank you!!!

okay I will let you know once I get back from the store later today and then figure out a way to exchange info with you so I can get a quote on shipping.
Okay I picked up a couple half pint jars with no writing or quilting on the side. They were only 1.49 each but they had the wrong kind of lids so I'll have to swap them out with some I have here at home. But if you want to send me your address I will see how much it is to ship them off to you. I'll probably just cover it for you as long as it's not too crazy
Dang it - just got most of parts delivered today and now see I ordered the wrong switch! Great, there's $1.49 down the tube!! HAHAHA KIDDING! Thanks for updating with the correct info - I am still waiting for the LM386 since the place I ordered from was out of stock so I have time to get the correct switch. Thanks again and I will share it here once I am done.
I am going to pick up a couple jars tomorrow so I can start my build as soon as the amp module arrives - if you are interested I can pick up one or two extra for you and ship them to you if you want to pay for the cost. Actual cost, no added fees. Just let me know.

Very cool - I really want to try and build this as a gift for my son - his birthday is coming in a month and a half and I know he would LOVE IT. I havent read all the steps but I am pretty intimidated by the schematic!Thank you so much for posting this - it is super cool and totally B@D@$$!!
