Envelope making

Help!! I need measurements to make an odd sized envelope using the Martha Stewart scoring board. So I need the top and bottom of the envelope to be 5.25" and the sides to be 5". What size paper should I start with (I’m assuming not a perfect square since the needed measurements are not the same), and what measurements should my A and B score lines be? Thank you for your quick reply because I must get these invitations out in a few days and I am not even finished with them yet!

Gilding a ...Wasp?

I have a  vision for a project but am unsure what would be the best means of achieving it.  When I was a kid, I had a bug collection. My grandfather found a perfectly preserved wasp in his garage and saved it for me in a plastic syrup bottle lid. Over the decades all my other insect specimens crumbled (I was a kid, so I just had them loose in a school box without proper mounts) but this wasp is STILL intact and perfect inside the syrup cap more than 20 years later! My grandfather was very special to me, and I was toying with the idea of somehow metal plating this wasp to turn it into a pendant. I have no experience with metal working and don't own the stuff to do it, but i'm open to purchasing materials if my goal even seems realistic.  It is a fragile exoskeleton, which probably limits what I can do in terms of casting  I have wondered about brush coating it with fiberglass resin (to strengthen it) and then painting it with gold leaf, but many of the faux gold leaf paints out there are pretty crappy looking.   Fearing I might just end up destroying the wasp, I've also thought maybe I should just get a Ryker mount and hang him with the rest of my legit insect collection, though it is not posed properly and is likely waaaaaay too old to be re-relaxed for posing. If any experienced jewelry makers, gold leaders, or entomologists have thoughts on how to successfully gild this wasp (or why not to), I welcome your ideas! Thanks in advance.

Nerf Modifications and Paint Jobs.

Hello, I just thought I'd share the last few months of completed work with my fellow makers! I'm addicted to modifying and painting Nerf guns now because its something you put a lot of time into that is used regularly. It doesn't gather dust or become a paper weight like my previous model car hobby.  Anyway enjoy, and thanks for looking! More pictures can be provided if you're interested. JonnyBGood

lost wax casting: what material is the best for pouring metal into?

So I made a rad Yoda wax figurine recently and I'm looking into converting him into a aluminum via the lost wax casting method. I've seen some other instructables on casting the metal into plaster of paris, but that doesn't seem to preserve the very fine details that I want. There are a few other methods I've seen on other forums, like mixing fine sand with plaster and making a ceramic mold...I have even wackier ideas like using fireproof cement, but I haven't seen anything online to support using it...what other ideas can you think of that don't involve expensive investment powders I have to buy online?

Glow in the dark paint for styrofoam balls

Hello, I made a Zelda-style fairy (as seen in this guide https://www.instructables.com/id/Zelda-Style-Fairy-In-A-Bottle/). I was thinking that I might be able to give the styrofoam ball a little more character when not lit up if I could give it a light coat of paint. If there's a glow in the dark paint I can use for this, even better. I don't want to add so much paint that it will smother the light when it's switched on. I know spray paint will melt styrofoam, so that's out. Would I be able to sort of dry-brush acrylic paint used for miniatures onto it? I have a few pots of Citadel paint on hand, or I can always run to the craft store. Heck would food coloring work? Or is the whole idea more trouble than it's worth? Thanks for any help Dave

Folding coffee table?

Hi instructable community. I am currently graduating, and I own a 484sq. feet (45m^2) apartment. I have the basics and am quite grateful for what I have. however, I belive that a coffee table is almost a necessity. The problem is that if the table isn't wide enough, it won't be of much use, and if it's too wide, it will occupy too much space and will be in the way. That's (hopefully) where you brilliant minded people come in. I was thinking about a folding coffee table that will be thin, and when I have company over, I pull on it or something and it widens up so it can comfortably hold a few glasses and maybe a book or too. I have added a few images of the area that the table will go. The couch is 2m in length (6.56167979 feet) so you can get a generall image of the room. The couch is on a slight angle, so the small plant can fit behind it (it's on a chair so it can get sunlight),  so I can move the couch around a little for a bit more room. Please keep in mind that I do not have many tools, but I know how to work with raw materials, It will just take a little more time (instead of an electrical saw, I have a hand saw. Same job, takes longer). Also I don't have alot of spare money and I can't find "special" items (for example, ball bearings, and pivot and swirlly stuff are out of the picture). I know it sounds quite bizzare but I would like some help. It doesn't HAVE to be a foldable table, but I would prefer it to be, because the couch is also a bed, so if someone comes over for a couple days, I need to be able to "hide" the table to open up some space.  Worst case scenario, I'll make a small(ish) chest that will double as the table. Thank you for your time reading this message. I will be glad to hear from any of you!

Tips for finishing cut bottles

I bought my boyfriend a Kinkajou Bottle Cutter and Bottle Cutting Inc. sandpaper kit because he was interested in recycling bottles into drinking glasses, candles, etc. He was really excited about the handmade gifts he planned to make, but the sanding/ finishing of the bottle rim has turned out to be such a laborious process he's only finished one glass in 6 months. The sanding papers range from 80grit to 220, I believe. It just takes so long to get a nice smooth edge that your arm is killing you and it's difficult not to give up before achieving a truly professional result. Anyone out there have tips or tricks to make the finishing process faster or less tiresome? Any secret tools of the trade we should know about?  We don't have a garage or big power tools to work with, though I've considered seeing if maybe there's something we could rent for a day(?) I've also looked into BC inch's new "diamond' sanding pads but we're hesitant to drop more money into the project unless we hear those are totally amazing. I welcome your thoughts!

secret boxes for the outdoors - revisted

Hello, Instructibles gang…. I posted several questions related to “secret boxes” over the weekend. I got some feedback suggesting that the inquiries should have been combined, and that they didn’t include enough information to lead to worthwhile answers. The topics came to mind sort of haphazardly, so I do apologize for the scattershot nature of the original posts.  As to the latter issue, “secrecy” was never the intention… rather, it was that this is all still in the “doodle” stage of planning, and I didn’t have a lot of details to give in the first place. Nonetheless, I’ll try to get a little more concrete - and combine the three questions in the process. I’m a letterboxer. Letterboxing stuff comes up now and then on Instructibles, but for those who are unfamiliar, it’s similar to geocaching (which seems to be more well-known), but with an added, artistic component. Whenever I see “secret boxes” in my regular Instructibles emails I think about whether the designs could be adapted for letterboxing purposes – either “on the trail” or at limited-time events and get-togethers. Naturally, I’ve been looking through my bookmarks and doing Instructibles searches, google searches, etc., but I’d appreciate if anybody might be willing to point me toward some of their favorite designs. I’m increasingly interested in creating boxes that are “hidden in plain sight” – not concealed, but rather “hidden” by virtue of the fact that they look like something else – such as a birdhouse or mailbox – and might in fact actually BE that something else, in addition to being a hiding place. I would welcome any suggestions that the community thinks might fit the bill. Here are some of the preliminary ideas I’ve been thinking about: 1)      Folks hunting the box are told to take a 9v battery, with the snap-on wire leads, with them. When they get to the box they have to put the leads into two holes, where they and the battery complete a circuit. The current trips some sort of latch, allowing a door to be opened. Of course, the door would have to re-latch when closed again. 2)      Something similar to #1 but a little more electronic. Hunters might be given a schematic of a simple Thing that they have to build and take with them. This would, essentially, be a key. I’ve already received an interesting suggestion involving RFID chips. I also got to thinking that a USB connection could be very discreet and easily hidden, and THAT got me thinking that the “key” could perhaps be something on a smartphone… data rather than hardware. I’ve got basically no background in electronics, but I’m fairly good at following directions…. 3)      Pretty much any other contraption where some sort of hidden compartment would be created, which can be accessed through some sort of process that likely wouldn’t happen randomly or accidentally. (I know… could I be any more vague?) The boxes would likely be mounted to something solid - a tree, wall, post, etc. - but I imagine it could be that you take it down, do what you’ve gotta do, and then put it back. And they would most likely be exposed to the elements and would have to stand up to being out of doors. The size of the compartment is entirely flexible…no minimum or maximum dimensions.  And, as stated, I’m a beginner when it comes to electronics – but I am more than willing to learn! I know what I’m trying to describe, but please let me know if I’m not doing well in communicating it to others. Like I said, I’m not trying to be secretive. It’s just that it’s still a very open-ended scheme – not many specifics – and I’m interested in hearing how different folks might approach it. Please shout if you have any thoughts or want more info.

Or if the person looks too narrow move the 2 main stars closer together. Towards the end of the video I show a couple other pieces of artwork that I could show you how to make if you want.

High carbon steal annealing/tempering

First off, I'm not entirely where to post this nor if it has been posted elsewhere (i did do a quick check but i didn't spend too much time on that endeavor). So if this is not the correct/best place to post this i will move it and if it is elsewhere then i will delete it. This topic starts with a question from something I just recently did. I got a high carbon steel marking knife (its a Hock tool) and when i got it, it was bent and i heated it up to a nice red color, let it cool, tried bending it, and broke the tip off so i sharpened it back to a point and heated it up until it was no longer magnetic and heated it at 450F for about an hour. After doing this and checking some charts I was expecting a golden/brown color but instead got a blue color throughout most of it. So do i need to redo this or is it harder than i would expect from a blue colored steel? So I'm sure there are plenty of resources out there for figuring all this out but i was hoping this could be a centralized area for anyone to get all the information they need on this topic. what are some tips/tricks on annealing/heat treating/tempering iron, steel, and high carbon steels? is there a difference between the three  (annealing, heat treating, and temper)? what is the difference (if there is one)? what should someone expect from doing something like this? what would each color be useful for (which would be best for a drill bit or which would be best for woodworking tools etc.)? any tricks of the trade? any personal tricks that you wont find anywhere else? anything else to add? ANYTHING that is relevant would be helpful, im sure there are many people that could benefit from a list of tips from those who actually do these things. if i remember to do so i will post this blue marking knife that i'm talking about.
