I always use Dielectric Grease on the contacts of outdoor lighting. It can also be used to prevent corrosion on automotive light bulbs and plug-in connectors.
I like your variations!
Agree. Fresh strawberries from the local veggie/fruit stand sell for 75¢ to $1 a quart in season. We go through about 2-3 quarts a year. At that rate, it would not be economically feasible to build this, even without the cost of tools.
Nice job!! I’ve made several small tables using what you call ‘cookies’ (I call them ‘hockey pucks’) cut from tree trunks. The secret is, as I’m sure you know, is to have three legs instead of four. A three legged table (or stool) won’t rock on an uneven surface.
Agree!! My first thought as I followed along was “I hope there’s a video”.
I like the ‘burn & brush’ finish idea. I’ll be trying that on future projects.
Made from repurposed lattice. Displayed with repurposed bench (yard art, no longer used as bench)
I’d suggest schedule 40 ‘thin wall’ (red printing on the pipe) as opposed to the thicker walled pipe (blue/black printing). My son I law used the thin wall pipe and a cross tee to replace broken dome tent support poles. Worked great. Flexible but strong. Just a suggestion.
1/2” pvc comes in ‘schedule 40’ (used for pressurized water systemk) and schedule 20 (used for non-pressurized system [ie drainage systems]). The schedule 20 had a thinner wall and therefore it is more flexible (and less expensive. Both schedules use the same fittings because the OD is the same for both. Hope this helps.
Highly agree! Wa-a-ay overcooked!
Agree 100%. NEVER cut to check!
I think he’s saying that the pics at the beginning of the post are the ‘before’ pics.

I don’t think this would be a usable cutting board.
“Hot Rod” ??? Kind of a stretch! “Rat Rod” ??? Maybe! IDK. Can’t bring myself to embrace it. Lots of work. Looks ‘different’. $15 grand-cool?? Don’t see it! JMHO
With the exception of four years in the military, I have had a beard and mustache for all of my adult life. (As you can tell by the submitted pic, that’s been a long time). I recently decided to go from a ‘cookie duster’ stach to a handlebar. After developing a skin sensitivity to a commercial wax, I found and made this wax using white beeswax. (I wasn’t sure how a natural yellow wax would work with grey/white facial hair so when I found the white option, I went with that). The 2-1 ratio works well for me. It’s still a WIP (work in progress) but I’m extremely satisfied with the results. And an added benefit is... it’s less expensive than the commercial products. Thank you target022.
I’ve had a full beard and mustache my entire adult life, except for 4 years of military service. (as you can tell by the attached pic, that’s a long time). I recently decided to make the ‘stach a handlebar. I made this wax after I developed a sensitivity to a store-bought wax. It’s only been a short time and it’s still a WIP (work in progress). (The only difference is, I used white bees wax). Thank you target022

I always find it amazing how many people fall for bs like this! “If it’s on the internet (or Facebook) it HAS TO BE TRUE”.
Many hardware stores have a variety of sizes
I made a stop similar to this. I used a plastic set screw to avoid damaging the ruler.

if you ever come to Buffalo and order "Buffalo wings" you’ll first off be immediately marked as a non-local. Then you’ll be asked "what??, Buffalo wings??, what are buffalo wings??" They are "wings" or "chicken wings", and even "chicken wings" are suspect and will bring a funny look. Wings, that’s all they are, just wings!! (And, as I mentioned in an earlier post, there is no resemblance between wings and what is described in this instructable).
okay, I’m a buffalo native and I still live here. I was around when 'Buffalo wings' were first invented at The Anchor Bar. (Actually there is no such thing as "Buffalo Wings", they’re just 'WINGS). Anyway, this recipe has no resemblance to 'WINGS’ other than the franks sauce. You will never, I repeat NEVER find a true WING with a flour coating. Deep fried then shaken in Frank's and melted butter. Pretty simple! 'Mild','medium', 'hot' or 'suicidal'. Those are your choices. And, I suppose many locals would not consider 'mild' or 'medium' to be true WINGS.
just setting the record straight. These what-ever-they-are have absolutely no relationship to what have become known as 'Buffalo wings'. So please don’t try to call them Buffalo anything. They are breaded chicken bit at best!
I think he ment 'braze' not brace. Or you could solder it
hi Debi, I wrap the stick with paracord. I then 'shrink' the cord by applying a coat of polyurethane.
and you can eat the cheese while you play chess.
if possible, you could heat the nut to soften the shrink tube to make it easier to remove the nut if necessary
However, if I remove all the ink, I can't get my deposit back!
I'm glad I could put a smile on your face. Mission accomplished. ;-)
or a little wax from a candle
I agree! I've always favored the 'hoppy' brews myself. From IPA's on.
I have a similar unit that I use to de-bark branches to make walking and hiking sticks. I'm going to incorporate a couple of you ideas into it to improve it. Thanks!
how about a little more info on those 'new beers' you discovered? ;-)
I use paracord for grips on walking / hiking sticks that I make. No matter what design I make the wrap, I finish with min wax wood hardener to shrink and harden the cord. Works great!
the kids today just throw it away and get mom / dad to buy them a new one. They preach 'recycle' but they don't practice it.

I agree Gary, nothing goes into the trash at my house until I've taken it apart and decided that it can't be fixed. And if there are any useable parts, they're saved.
You need "GooGone" get it at your hardware store.
our first home economics project was an apron. Nothing fancy or frilly. Just a plain linen butcher type apron. Then we used that during the cooking portion of the class
I keep several file folders of sandpaper. One is for used paper only, that can still be used. One is for paper that I've cut fo my 1/4 sheet sander and one for my RO sander etc.
I guess our school was pretty advanced then. I'm over 70. In our school, girls were required to take one 'shop' class: 'General Shop'. Kind of an overview. Many took more. And the guys were required to take one 'Home Economics' class. Again, many took more. Oh yeah, these 'intro' classes were NOT co-ed so I wasn't a way to meet girls / guys. The specialized shop classes (wood shop, metal shop, electrical shop etc) were co-ed. I'm afraid that we (society) have been putting too much emphasis on everyone going to college now. Not everyone is college material. And that is not a put-down. Tradespeople are in high demand. And they earn a very good living doing their jobs. There's nothing wrong with getting a little dirt under those fingernails. I'm glad that you've had the opportuni…

great refresher. All (except story stick) are learned in basic junior high shop.
Very attractive door. My only concern would be replacing the glass if it breaks.
I don't see how this is any stronger than a normal toenail. And a lot moe labor intensive. Either way, screws will be stronger than either toenailing or this cockamamie system. Who has time to pre-bend every nail?
keep your fuel in a SEALED container and use "Sta-Bil". Problem solved!
I use oak, maple (sugar maple, red maple, scarlet maple) and elm. All work well. See pics above!
