This was such a cool project, Brandon! Enjoyed walking through it with you.
Wooden Star Map / Nightlight
I've never had it happen, but I have heard of it happening before. ha. I was wondering if it still held true in this case, where it is not a super tight friction fit, but rather using epoxy to hold in the rod?
I see. I've heard your name on the Creator's Collective podcast...you get a lot of your questions read on there. Cool to see you here!
I don't know that I've been mentioned on Making it podcast, but I was in one of Jimmy Diresta's vlogs a few weeks back. We were at Workbench Conference and I was at dinner with he and some others. That was fun. Yeah, you have a ton of instructables!
DIY Bent Plywood Long Reach C-Clamps Without Bending Plywood! (Broken Sofa to Clamp!)
Thanks for following along! That sounds like it looked good with the white wood panels. Is it too heavy for the door?
I think they do add something to the look of the piece, but I believe they help hold the fibers of that area so that when you insert the rod in, it doesn't blow out. This would not really be the case for mine, since the rod was slightly undersized and I used epoxy. I believe with older tools, you would just try for a friction fit, so you would make whatever you're inserting a little bigger than the hole/slot, so that it would wedge in there really well. In that case, the ferrule would really hole the wood from blowing out or tearing.
Ah, good deal! Glad you found it useful. Which one are you looking to pick up?
Yeah, I was really surprised at the low cost of the rubber stamp. I use mine with multiple colors also! I use black for some things, but also picked up an ink pad to use my logo color (kind of an aqua green/blue). It works well on so many mediums.

I really like how rustic and simplistic this is. Plus, it is just a great part of a decor for a room. Nice job! The photos are beautiful and I enjoyed the video!
Firewood Log Tea Light With Matchbox
I'm sure you did!
Thank you! I do still need to make a strap so they can't be pulled too far apart. I just didn't get a chance before publishing this. And you're right about the tacks, rather than glue. I'm just not that skilled yet, and I figured using the glue would help hold it so I could focus more on the tacks.
Thank you for the kind words!There is no valve on the pipe. I'm sure there is some bit of air that draws in there, although, I've not really noticed much. This thing is not perfectly air tight...maybe some are, but I would doubt it. It is more just a matter of the larger hole is where most of the air will intake, simply because it is so much larger. Some air does go out of the larger hole too, but not enough to stop the effectiveness of the bellows. Thanks for checking out the project!
Nice job, Marie! I really like the iron pipe...that industrial look is a nice touch!
X Leg Coffee Table
Those are gorgeous! I love the curved handles...I never even thought of that. Nice touch using the laser to add some detail. (at least it looks like a laser). Where are you drilling the hole? If you're looking for some upholstery tacks, I linked to some in my instructable and in my video. I think I ended up going with the shorter ones of the options in the antique brass. I like the look of them a lot. They are maybe 5/8" long.Also, thank you for taking the time to let me know about my YouTube channel. I really appreciate that! I've been struggling recently with motivation about continuing that...it is a tough thing to grow, and I'm not seeing quite as much growth as I would have liked.

Oh cool! What wood are you using?
Thank you very much!
Thank you! I bought this leather from a company called Acadia Leather. I recommend following them on Instagram @AcadiaLeather as they put specials there periodically. That's how I found this leather.
Thanks so much! I appreciate the comments.
Awesome job on this! I had no idea it was so easy...thanks to you, I know that now!

Yeah, that sounds about right. I've not tested this with a thermometer, but it definitely feels a bit cooler on the hot days.

ha ha...sorry to make you so motivated! Seriously though, insulating it might make a big enough difference that you would want to be in your shop more. I know it really helped me with that. I found that I was subconsciously avoiding going out into the shop in July and August (I'm in Mississippi...it is brutally hot and humid in those months). Thanks for checking out the project!
Starting a Handmade Business
Hexagon Piecing Tutorial
Yeah, it would really help. Just be sure to account for how huge the garage doors are. Mine are a little over-sized and I needed 2 kits. The kit is for a standard door, which I think is 7'6". Thanks for checking out the project!
Design Coat Rack
Really cool coat rack!
Thanks so much! Glad you enjoyed it! Hopefully, it can save some other people some time and effort see how I did this install.

I’ll check that out. Thank you!
That’s really good to know. Thanks! I often think I’m settling by using these with comments I’ve seen, so it is good to know they’re good tools.
ha ha...good points!
I love this type of diagram that you used for the cover! I've always liked that look. Great job!
Thanks for the nice words and for checking out the project!
Thanks for checking out the project! The bottom of the bowl is not concave. It has a flat spot where I sanded it, so it seems to stand fine. That was one part I kept having to test to make sure it would stand right.
Thanks so much!
Thanks so much! Appreciate you taking a look and taking the time to leave a comment.

Actually, lacquer does not raise the grain, so there is no need for this.
That would be another way to do it. I don't know about in your area, but around here, I never seem to be able to find screw drivers at yard sales.
Living Art LED Desk Lamp
Lacquer doesn't raise the grain on wood. I do raise the grain on other pieces that I am sealing with mineral oil that will come in contact with water, such as cutting boards.
Good information. I really didn't know what hot dipped was. Even with removing the protection in that area, I don't have a super sharp point that will erode quickly, especially since these will not be used on metal. The steel is still plenty strong for most wood applications.
Good idea, Noriah! I’ll have to keep that in mind!
Yep...then all you need is a masonry bit, some tapcons and you're good to go!
Thanks! I did not heat treat the nail. It might go dull after a bit, but I don't plan to use this on metal, just wood, so I figured it was not worth the time to heat treat it. I think it will hold up just fine. I believe the 20 penny nails I got were "hot dipped" (whatever that means), so they seemed quite tough from reading about them. Tag me on Instagram @Brudaddy when you make one...I'd love to see it!
How to Make a Scratch AwlView Instructable »
Thought about it, but the client (my sis and bro in law) didn't like the idea of a round one. I originally wanted this to be a bit more square, but where the studs were located on the wall made us change the shape in order to hit two of them. Plus, I think the long, slender design somewhat mimics the shape of the propeller, giving a nice effect. Thanks for checking it out!
Thanks so much! Appreciate the kind words.
Ha! Thanks, Jessy!
Yep...I've seen that done quite a bit. I did it like that in my shop in a few places, but just one strip like here: https://www.instructables.com/id/Quick-Easy-Drill-Charging-Station/ Thanks for checking out the project!
