What an amazing amount of work to create this equally amazing flip-top table. Very impressive!
You’re right, Jayne. The zip bags aren’t air or water tight. What I usually do now is simply lay a zip bag flat on the top of the tube opening and screw the cap on. I do the same with any liquids when I fly. Nothing gets past that seal.
What a lot of work! Glad that you were able to keep going and get it all completed. I love the whole idea, especially incorporating chickens into your planning. Superb! Love it!
Outstanding instructable. Thank you so much for your excellent step-by-step photos and explanations.
I use these bags for many things, but I hadn't thought about using them for keys. Great idea! Thanks.
2nd comment: I made this and when I used it, I realized that the thread I used was too thick. Somehow I managed to get the tick off, but the head stayed in. It was a wood tick, thank God. I bought a loop tick remover and it worked really well, got the tick out with some of my husband's flesh in its jaw. The next one had flesh in its jaws, as well. We've removed more and they've been wood ticks. I do a thorough body scan after he's been doing work outside and have found some and easily gotten them off him.The lasso device in this instructible would have done the trick had I known to use thinner thread and held the loop down with a finger as I edged the loop up to the tick. Once I snag the beast, I successfully get the whole tick out.
Sorry that you got the disease. I've heard that it's terrible. ?
Very interesting, educational and presented. Thank you. I especially loved the "wildlife" photo of your lovely dog!
Thank you so much! My husband got deer ticks on his body twice recently and both times I used fine, pointy tweezers, and the heads remained in his body. The first time, his doctor had him take antibiotics, which I felt was overkill and not necessary, as the tick had not been on (in) him very long. The day he completed the med, he got another tick and I told him what I knew about how long the tick had to be attached before any disease could be spread and urged him not to call the doctor. He didn't. Antibiotics are used too freely and shouldn't be, as nasty little creatures, bacteria, etc., tend to mutate and become antibiotic-resistant.
Do these have to be refrigerated? They sound wonderful to use in training dogs. I would cut them into smaller pieces before they cooled.
So lovely and inspiring! Great video - thanks so much!
I've been wondering how best to save a few t-shirts that have great designs. Making a wall hanging or quilt doesn't really appeal to me, but this looks like a good way to save them. If I do this and hang them where the sun doesn't shine directly on them, would they maintain their original color?And, you did a great job with very clear instructions. Thank you.
And then you ....
Great tip and useful for so many bags that I use, hoping that the zip will be good enough. I get the air out by rolling up the bags tightly, if possible, and then zipping them shut, and it fails pretty often. Thanks so much for such an easy fix.
Amazing instructable, genius at work! Thank you for providing this very clear and detailed instructable to anyone who wants to work with this material.
I don't know how I missed the video, but I guess I was in a hurry to see the finished product. The metal we were trying to bend was much thicker and we just about killed ourselves bending it. Later we were talking to a friend and he explained that we needed to heat the metal in order to bend it. Because I skipped by your video, I missed the gauge of the steel that you used and thus my comment. Thanks for clearing it up for me.
We struggled and struggled to bend one of those things years ago. It's very helpful to heat with metal to make the bending easier.
Sorry, I love the idea and especially how inexpensive it is. Thanks for sharing.
