    No bad fumes are given off at 350 degrees F or lower. However I would use a separate oven for cooking food and making projects!

    Thank you for the tips! I'm still rather new to the sharing content online, but I will try my best to learn more and become more efficient at:)

    The whole point of me taking the time to make a video is to help someone create or inspire them. It takes a lot more time to make a video than taking pictures and writing down some steps. I believe instructables sees the value in this, which is why they allowed creators to use video format. I hope you take the good from what I'm trying to share :)

    Yes, instructables sees the value of videos. It is why they have a VIDEO category of instructables. I do appreciate the videos, even more so when they are in their correct category.

    Actually, the different types of instructable (step-by-step, video, photo) haven't been around for a while (more than a year?). So instructables like this are just fine. However, if you want more traffic, you should probably think about having both the video and text/pictures (see KingOfRandom for this style).

    I must admit I was unaware of the different category. I will look into it. Hopefully you got something good out of it either way..thanks

    It's not really an "instructable" if you send us to a YouTube video.
    Just sayin'.......

    I disagree. It is an instructable. However, I don't believe it should be under the step-by-step category. Instead, it should have been put under the video category. It seems many of the video posters are just too lazy to put their instructables in the correct category, or may be just ignorant on category selection.

    I agree, instructables became more and more a site were people just drop there video's to get more views on there channel.

    I find that watching video tutorials are way more informative in my opinion. Thanks.

    If you keep it at 350 degrees or under, you won't get any toxic fumes. All I smell is a light laundry detergent scent.

    Nice. do you smell anything when heating the HDPE in your oven?
