  • Flatpack Laptop Stand

    Hi Newman, NICE idea. I am stubborn. I really think the laptop stand MIGHT be more sellable but that is up to you. Maybe a focus group would help. I was thinking that the laptop stand would be good for business people to have on the plane or whatever their transportation is. They could keep it in their briefcases or laptop cases. That brings me to another idea for it. Come up with a flatpack way of having it in a car similar to what a police car uses but is removable and easy to set up. Again Good Luck.

    Hello Jeanniel1, Yes he can do that but the so called "low cost" items that are well made are the ones that are bought. There have been MANY items that were not pp'd that were copied line for line and the person who's Idea it was originally lost out. Great ideas need protecting and he was nice enough to share his process with us. Newman can get the process started and the money he gets from the stand he can put towards his patents. There are also ways to patent things by oneself. Selling and getting the ball rolling takes time. There are a lot of online sites as I said in my previous post that he can use to promote and sell his ideas. Also, Newman, there are older people that were in business and the process of patenting that are retired and may be able to help you ch…

    De-nailer Deflector

    You are funny thank you for that and ADD / HD can be a bane and a positive. Your design is great and I have been eyeing the de-nailer too lol. TOOLS gotta love em. One thing I would do is to make a slot a bit more wide to accommodate the width of the two nails so all I have to do is use the de-nailer without having to make sure the board was lined up with the slot. I would also add two guides to place the board between and use the same or similar application you used with the bucket clamping part of the deflector. Brain gets going when I see a great design / idea. Thank you for sharing :)

  • Flatpack Laptop Stand

    Hi Newman, Before you give up on selling your design research to see if there are any other designs like yours or patent pending. If not start the patent process. Your design looks to be original and you do not want to give that away. It takes time to get an idea sold. Put your finished product on Etsy or similar sites. Do NOT give up. You have so many avenues open to you to promote your design. The only other thing I would add to your design is a slide on cup or square for pencil / pen and sticky notes. Good luck and thank you for sharing :)

  • Small and Cute, HomeMade Modern DIY Sofa | Minimum Tools

    VERY WELL DONE!!!! Great design, clear easy instructions. I would add a component that most people do not know about. Well made sofas usually have 6-7 Legs for better support especially for the middle. 3 legs in front, 3 legs in back and sometimes you will see one in the middle under the seat of the sofa between the front and back middle legs. I know you want a streamlined look but the addition of the 2 or 3 other legs would not detract from that. :)

    Read the link provided please.

    For those of us who live in America most of us respect our Flag and there are specific rules that should be complied with. The board is a representation of our Flag and with that representation should go all the due respect. It IS an American Flag made in wood. For all intent an purpose it IS an American Flag. Go look up the guidelines to our Flag you will be surprised.

    You burn the Flags because that is the proper way to dispose of torn or worn American Flags. That is the protocol. Read up on the guidelines please.

  • Whisky Barrel Chair

    Steven, BEAUTIFUL. How old is your Bonsai, Good job on that too. One question please, Do you think you could make a rocker with the staves or is the oak too hard to re-bend for a better curve. Thinking that making new rockers with oak plywood might be better and to notch the legs to fit in the rockers.

    Hi Steve, Love the story about your tree. I am not sure I can find used barrels where I am even though we have a few wineries, so, making the chair may not happen. I just was thinking that your design would make a great rocker even if you used another kind of wood for the rockers. :)

I also found no link posted in comments about the door hinges as you mentioned. Thank you so much for your help and for taking the time to answer.

    I DID find it after I sent the message to you and thank you for reposting it. I first thought you meant in YOUR comments in the instructable. I have that tutorial also saved from reading it when it first posted. I was hoping since your instructions were simpler that you might also come up with a more simple hinge and latch idea.

  • 3D Printed Orthotic Shoes for a Tiny Dog

    Hi Tye, Great tutorial and thank you for sharing your ingenious design with us. If I may make a suggestion, use shoe sole leather for the sole of Lucis' boots. it will last much longer than the foam and should not slide. If you have a leather shop such as Tandy or a cobbler near they will help you with the right kind of leather. You also should use E-6000 for the sole or a shoe glue if you use my suggestion because hot glue gun glue breaks down in weather and will melt in the heat. Good luck!!

  • Pierced and Sculpted Goblin Planter Out of Clay

    This is such a fun design. Thank you for posting it. I do not have a potters wheel or a kiln so I think polymer clay would work very well for this application. I would use a plastic pot or a large coffee can as an insert to help with keeping the polyclay from sagging while building. Because the temp to cure the clay is so low I doubt it will melt the insert. BUT, the is yet to be seen. A metal can can be used also :)

    Yes, when I first started working with polyclay I ruined things I made by not using the right types of coloring / paint. Learned by doing then I got smart and looked things up lol. I never used Rustoleum on polyclay because I was not sure what it would do to the clay. I DO appreciate the info on the Spaz Stix and I think If I make the medallion I will get a can in black too. There is too much work in that piece to take chances. I might make a practice square of clay and paint it first with regular acrylic paint first and then use the chrome paint to see how that works. I also just remembered that either Krylon or Rustoleum has the 2x paint specially made for plastics which polyclay is.

I think it will be best to experiment first before using the Chrome paint. OH I also read that the specialty metallics will be ok to use on the clay. Thank you again for your tutorial.

    You thought wrong. If you copy directly, including pictures, which you have done, You are infringing on a copywrite. There is a woman who has posted her original instructions here ( she has a well documented blog ) and a craft website blatantly copied her work pictures and text without giving her the credit or even getting permission to use HER work. It is illegal and what you did is illegal. I would take all your so called "cultural articles" down off of this site and any other site that you have claimed the "instructions" as yours. Please put yourself in the originators shoes. How would you like it if someone stole your ideas.

  • Pouches Made Almost Entirely of Hot Glue

    Yep, and I totally understand. :)

    Very nice project and thank you for sharing. I liked how you achieved the striped sheet. One thing you need to remember about hot glue....it melts or becomes soft and tacky in hot weather so be careful not to leave creations in an area that will get hot. One idea to keep contents from getting ruined by mistake if the glue should melt is to laminate some fabric to the sheet so that if anything goes wrong the contents will be protected :)

  • LeslieGeee commented on koubis's instructable Safari Glamping Tent

    A wonderful build and I bet could be used for a regular camping trip minus the platform, but I bet one could be made portable with a little thought and the use of large diameter bamboo poles. I also would think a regular tarp could be used as the flooring and can be hooked onto the sides, front and back of the tent fabric to make a tub shape to keep water out. I await your instructable on the tent fabric pattern itself. I also wish you had more pictures of the set up of the cross beam and how you attached the tent to the cross beam the frame and side horizontal poles. Thank you for sharing.

    Koubis, Thank you for the additional pictures. I thought the tent was all one piece but it is two. The main tent which includes an attached roof with grommets on the top and sides to attach to the top and side poles, and a separate "roof" that covers the whole thing. In Step 5 the first picture it looks like you attached the peak of the roof with a rope but I can see adding hooks and screw eyes to the roof pole. Might make it easier to hang. I will await your instructable on the tent construction :)

    Hi Silkier, I don't think I would use filament. I would either use rubber cording that I use for pendants I make or even craft cord. You can tie craft cording and leather cording anything other than that that will not grab the way I think you want it to. I also think that the size hole you drill or make can determine tautness of the cord. I also think the filament he uses is more rubbery than you think so the grab will be there. Hope this helps.

  • This is a simple to make and adorable cat toy. I was thinking a tail and a length of cord could be added to a dowel to make a rod toy. The other thing I would like to suggest to make it easier is to lay out a "flat" of stuffing, put a tablespoon or a bit more on the flat and spread it out. Then roll the flat up and stuff it into the partially sewn dumpling. It will be easier and when it comes time to change out the nip won't be a mess and you can possibly reuse the flat again. A chop stick or blunt edge of a wooden skewer will also help push the stuffing in if you don't want to put the rolled up stuffing inside as you sew. Thank you for sharing your project.

  • Hi Peter that seems to be a rating procedure in Europe. We have them here in the states and they are for info purposes. I checked the site out and did not see any mention that these ratings are enforced by law. There are many models of cars, SUVs, trucks etc and not all have a rounded hood. It all boils down to how fast the car is going and how hard the pedestrian is hit. Otherwise all vehicles would look exactly the same and there would be no need for different car companies. I will agree that in some cases the nose shape does matter but car makers make the design for profit looks and how well it cuts through air. Bottom line is dollars, pounds, etc. Let's agree to semi disagree :)

Step:3 Cut List picture has an angle on the front board with the access hole and what looks to be the back board pile in the stack in the middle between the access hole boards in the box and the 3 piles to the right of it ( the two sides & tops ).What I thought I saw were angled cuts on the top of the front and back boards to accommodate the angle of the roof and the two side pieces.In the assembly pictures with you air stapling the back board there appears to be an angle cut in that board. The pictures are what confused me.I will make one to your specs & diagram before I modify anything.“If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!”…

    Gotcha, :) It is not OCD with me it is ADD. I need to have things clarified to match what I am seeing in pictures in some cases so that I can understand what I am doing. That might seem OCD to some but it is how I see things sometimes. My favorite word is WHY lol. That is why I needed the angles clarified, the pictures did not match the directions or spec sheet and It was confusing to me. ADD can be an asset and a bane. Again thank you for your time and explanation.

  • LMAO!! Only a Maine Coon could carry this off LOL. I just adopted a MC mix and he deserves this. Did you use any catnip on the pillow to get him to use the throne? He needs a sigil necklace :) They are remarkable animals. GREAT job on the throne and thank you for sharing I am going to add this to my to do list lol.
