Simple Sheet Metal Brake: No Welding
I've considered doing that myself, but there are a couple of considerations to take into account. 1. Carbide is very hard, which also means that it is very brittle and likely to chip in a catch or even if you hit a very dense knot. 2. The tooth should be a square tooth, or it will cut and pull to one side, increasing the likelihood of a catch. 3. Parting tools are a type of scraper, with the point presented closer to the center of the wood than the top. Most circular saw blades have a positive rake angle (if you draw a line from the gullet of a tooth to the center of the blade, the tooth pitches forward into the cut). That will make a parting tool much more aggressive than it was intended to be and may be more prone to catches. I could be wrong about that, but for safety sake, I thought...see more »I've considered doing that myself, but there are a couple of considerations to take into account. 1.

Also, you might be able to reduce the rake angle with the right layout on the blade.
Great Instructable. I've saved my old blades for years for just that reason (knifemaking).
Wood is just not that bendable.
Secret Compartment Floating Shelf
Good luck with that. The board is too short to bend more than a fraction of a millimeter without taking significant damage to the grain,

I think that would be adding steps to a project that you shouldn't need to. Acrylic or oil based paints could simply be painted over the stain once dry. With acrylic paints, you would want to allow the stain to fully dry (couple of days) so that you don't trap any of its solvents under the paint.
It actually should work better on eggs shells, since the wood of a tree is designed to be a conduit for transporting water from root to leaf and egg shell is not (long version of saying egg shell is less porous).

If you are questioning the strength of the adhesive, play it safe. Drill a hole in the hooks before attaching them, and then add a screw to reinforce it. If you are putting screws into a particle board or MDF core door, use coarse, deep threaded screws and take care not to over tighten them. The threads of standard wood screws are too dull and sheet metal screw threads are too close together. Both will do more damage than good to particle board or MDF.
