  • Thanks, I really enjoyed making this and it is quite reusable. The size of the tubes will work for candies, baked goods, small toys, tree ornaments, etc. Someday he can fill it up with chocolates for the <future> grandkids ;-)We chose the five pointed star because we're in Texas, but the design allows for all sorts of creativity in a topper. Also, while I was assembling it, I put all the bottles in unwrapped and noticed that the different colors of the bottles with light coming through made a very nice looking tree. Next year I think we will leave the bottles unwrapped and put a small date sticker on the bottom of each so as to preserve that effect. Experimenting is fun!Lastly, this is a good example of foundational design where you come up with something and then notice someone els…

Using a larger tube, you can do the same thing with beer, as done here by rrups. Twenty-four tubes align perfectly into a tree shape! After that, let the creative juices flow.

  • Thank you! I was going to add glitter and a large ribbon around the whole thing but wifey said "He's a grown man! No glitter, no ribbons!" What's nice is it is easy to mod this to your liking (e.g., glitter & ribbon ?) and fill it with whatever will go in a 2" tube.

  • I squeeze a lemon (and occasionally a lime too), add a bit of cold water and drink it every morning. Just a magical elixir for all the reasons you listed and more. Nobel Laureate Linus Pauling was a fanatic about Vitamin C. Lemons are extremely cheap, totally natural and their thick skins protect you somewhat <g> if you don't buy organic. After the squeeze the rinds go into the composter where they add fiber and acid...or you can use them in any of the ways described above. Just a magical fruit! Lastly, after you have weaned yourself off sugar (as I have) things that were not sweet before suddenly are--like unsweetened lemon juice!

  • Exocetid commented on Plasmana's instructable The Plasma Speaker

    I just love this and Tesla would be soooooo pleased.Others may have mentioned this (the comments are many <sigh>), but this is also known as a 'singing arc'--how cool is that?William Du Bois Duddell was the Electrical Engineer that first conceived the idea in the early 1900's. He was quite ingenious and would have loved Instructables.
