That's interesting, I didn't know that! If you have any pictures of the lamp I would love to see it.

Thanks! I feel that it helps to show that everything doesn't always go as planned, but that shouldn't necessarily mean that you should stop trying.
You're welcome! I would recommend trying this technique out on some practice bottles. It's easy, but takes a little bit to get a feel for it. I would love to hear back on how it works out for you!
That's a good idea!
Giant Jacob's Ladder Toy
That's a really good question. It took me a while to figure out why they wouldn't release. I tried heating the whole bottle, freezing it, none of that helped. Even though the cracks go all of the way through the glass, they aren't perfectly straight through the glass. The wavy cracks interlock the pieces together, kind of like the teeth of a gear. I hope I explained that well.
I'm glad it was helpful! Jewelry made from sea glass you be awesome!
😳 now you have me feeling that too

See-Through Arduino UNO
That looks awesome! It kind of looks like the shape of Superman's emblem. Thanks for sharing the picture!
Thanks! I would love to see how yours turns out!
It wasn't cheap. The materials that I used for this added up to a bit over $300. I think that a cool, cheap DIY version could be made with scrapped pallets. I don't know how well that type of wood would hold up over time as a garden bed, but it could be interesting.
That's awesome! It would be cool to see how it looks!
I added about 22.5 cubic feet (about 0.83 cubic yards) of dirt into it.
That's an awesome tip! I didn't think about putting anything on the grass before adding the dirt, but I like the advice. And I'm glad you mentioned about the tape. That's something I can see being easy to overlook.
That's a great idea! I've been thinking that same thing. I still need to research home composting methods, but I'll definitely make an Instructable about it. Thanks for sharing your idea!
You're right, "drilling a pilot hole" is a better description. I've updated my Instructable. Thanks for the feedback! And I'm glad you like the garden bed!
Thanks! I would love to see how yours turn out if you decide to build some!
I apologize for any confusion that my links have caused, I had a hard time finding the exact screws on Amazon that I actually used. The ones I used are designed for exterior use (decks, fences, etc.) and are ceramic coated. I do appreciate your input on screw types though.

You bet! I'm glad you like it. By the way, the code I posted keeps changing on the page. I think I have it good now, but just to be safe I also have a link to the code on GitHub.
It's a bit overdue, but I just added the code I have to the end of this instructable. It still needs a bit of work, but it should be a good starting point.

For the whole project I used a few blades, I don't remember how many. I know some boards are tougher than the one I used so that could be. If a utility knife isn't working out well, I would recommend trying a coping saw or a dovetail saw. Something like this should work: https://amzn.to/2PHBXGS
That's a great idea! Using copper tape would open up a lot of options.
I was having the same issue. It would be awesome to be able to just place it in any position, but I ended up making it only work in one specific position. I put marks on the necessary corners to help me place it correctly. All of the other corners just match for appearances. But I do like the idea you have with using the rings like that in each of the corners.I wonder what would work for making the rings?
That was one of the main things that I wanted to do with this build. I'm glad I was able to figure out an easy way to do it. I would love to see what you build if you end up using this concept!
I'm working on an Instructable that focuses on the support tower, that will have the wiring for the tower and the Arduino. The new tower design will fix some issue I'm having, specifically with the touch sensors I used. This will affect the Arduino code, so I'm planning on adding that to this Instructable once it's sorted out.Thanks for the comment!
Yes. My PCB manufacturer has an option to panelize a PCB. Basically, I designed a single board, uploaded it to the manufacturer, then on the order form I selected to make a panel of 12 PCBs. They made them all at once, then they added the perforations for separation.

Thanks! When I was making it I was worried it wouldn't work out as well as it did.

Same here. I was trying to think of ideas for using this bottle as a lamp, then remembered this. I'm glad I did because I like the way it turned out. Thanks for the comment!
Make a Balancing Bottle LampView Instructable »
That's a good idea. I had the same thought, but didn't have any nozzles that would work. The WD40 can I have uses a different connection to the can than my paint cans do. Thanks for the tip! Hopefully other people can use this tip.
Spray Paint the Inside of a Glass BottleView Instructable »
That's a great point and question! The WD40 that I used will help prevent this. I don't want to say that will stop it 100%, but a great way to protect it even better would be coating it with a clear coat paint. Of course you would want to clean the oil off very well before painting it.

I agree! I'm working on another instructable with this model, adding LEDs to it. But I love your idea of adding sound effects too!
I was hoping it wasn't too much info. Thanks!
