    Oh ok, I’ve used that many a time, I just never knew it had a name. Also tartar sauce mixed with ketchup is really good! (It’s the Mickey D’s special sauce). If you’ve never tried it, the absolute best ketchup is Whole Foods store brand (365 Ketchup) - blows Heinz outta the water, no contest. Cheers!

  • Air Fryer Smashed Potatoes

    The only one making it more complicated here is…. YOU! Cmon, the policy is literally right above the comment box - BE NICE, POSITIVE, and CONSTRUCTIVE. Idk what kind of oven your using, but they’ve been digital for a minute now so 192 ain’t no thing. I’m gonna bake something at 399 degrees right now just to celebrate my temperature freedoms. Smile, get out and enjoy the world, love someone. It’s fulfilling.

    This looks delicious! Just curious - What is fry sauce? Do we have it in the US? It sounds kinda tasty lol.

  • Cat Tree for Your Climber Cat

    Lol, so true. I was thinking there must be a flange for these pipes, which could be screwed down to a plywood/mdf base? Just in case I can’t find a good tree stand, I was brainstorming options.

    Nicely done! We too have a ‘climber cat’, a 9 month old Burmese, whose latest hobby is climbing televisions lol. He invariably finds the highest point in any room and perches there. He has a cat condo, but this guy needs more climbing diversions! I am definitely going to make one of your trees, so thank you for posting and inspiring. Awesome project.

  • Fold-Up Wooden Dice Tower (From a Wine Crate)

    Lovely build! I love how it closes up for storage and looks like a “plain old” wine box. There’s also something oddly satisfying about the consistent, almost mechanical way the dice go through. I have one of those boxes and a leftover piece of plexiglass in my shed, now I know what I’ll be doing with them! Thank you for sharing.

    That’s not positive OR constructive. Instructables has a righteous “be nice” policy, let’s keep it cool. Surely we can be nice to each other on a free, self managed, educational site? Everyone here takes time to share knowledge and experience. What’s not to love? Smile, it’s contagious.

    Wow! That baked Brie looks amazing! Certainly seems easy enough, and it’s one of those things that make you look like a super-chef. Prep that, bring it to a dinner party, pop it in the oven - and voila - instant favorite. Great idea and inspiration, thank you!

  • Concrete Side Table

    Gorgeous work, really classy build! The contrast between the concrete and walnut is indeed lovely. I love working with walnut, it contrasts perfectly with lighter woods like maple or metals like copper, or pale concrete! And it really is best with just an oil/wax finish like this that lets the feel and grain of the wood shine through. Nothing better than that first wipe of oil when you get to finally see the woods natural beauty. Hats off to your fine craftsmanship 🎩

    Can you elaborate a little on this? I was thinking a string-pull powered version could fly very well, and then I saw your post… I can’t quite picture what you describe, though. Does the skewer just kinda sit in the spool, and you hold the spool in your hand? Then with the string wrapped around the skewer, you pull, and it flies up and out (leaving you holding just the spool)? Thanks for clarifying! Appreciate it.

  • Nail in Solid Brick Puzzle

    Firstly, the tools aren’t part of the cost of any ‘ble - this uses exactly one half brick and exactly one nail - that’s pretty inexpensive if not free. You can do this without nearly any of the pricey bits. Yes, the diamond bit and grinder are helpful, but the lathe isn’t required (it was just a plain old wood lathe too, not an expensive metal lathe). You can tap and die carefully by hand, especially if you have a vice handy, a fatter nail will be easiest. You could make the brick donut in 5 minutes with a chisel and clean it up on some 40 grit paper. With an angle grinder it’d be cake (and a donut!) I can’t think of a diamond bit substitute (but you could ask a tile place to cut it for you for less than the price of the bit) Lotsa workarounds in there if you wanted to make it me don’t h…

    Thank you for this inspiring post! I’ve been meaning to make a ring toss for a LOOOONG time but I never had just the right spot. Now, I can make one like this and mount it on the side of my shed! Instead of a fancy printed set (that’s awesome btw) I’m gonna make mine stationary but use a piece of pipe or a dowel to hang the ring from, so no need for a ceiling lol. I’m in Rhode Island, which is a coastal state, and somehow we don’t have these anywhere! That’s just wrong. Anyway - Great idea, and great execution. Thanks so much for sharing.

    Awesome, I hadn’t thought of making concave/convex shapes but I will now!

Oooh - or make a lamp with a hanging ‘shade’ of turtle shell scalemaille! So many uses.

I still remember fondly my first console and unboxing the shiny golden Zelda cartridge! True NES toaster story - I stayed up ALL night playing and actually melted a cartridge. The plastic casing was like taffy, it was warped and weird, but after cooling it still worked! Just blow on the cartridge, maaaybe blow on the console slot, and you were in business lol. Microsoft could’ve learned a thing or two from that hardy old system. Awesome build, and I imagine a very satisfying playing experience.

Incredible how it looks like a fancy wood grain at a glance. And a great way to make some space in the scrap bin. Awesome.

    I wonder if it’s related to the time warp deal going on that’s making all the comments say “NaN years ago” as a time stamp. I’m pretty sure I just posted, but maybe I’m in an alternate universe. Idk.

I think it would be awesome if we could see more details in the step by step, maybe next time you could make it less video-centric” For me, this is the type of Ible that comes across perfectly in this format. It’s essentially an artwork, so the specific details of the artists creation are superfluous. What they conveyed were the inspiration, and the essentials: this is how you do it.

I would never have thought of this project, nor would I have known how to go about it. Now, after reading the Ible (I didn’t watch the video) I could (and likely will) make one. Mission accomplished, no? I’m always appreciative when anyone takes the time to show ME how to do something, when it would’ve been easier to just make it and hang it up.

    I bet it would work with any foil, even aluminum foil. Those extra wide rolls would give you a good size piece to work with. For other soft metals like copper or brass I’d try any sheet metal place - they should have sheets of something thin enough to make impressions on. Copper would be beautiful, you could paint on some liver of sulfur or even a home brew patina juice to bring out all the cool organic colors in copper. Annealed copper can be as soft as taffy, so making the veins would be no problem.

    That doesn’t sound particularly nice, positive, or constructive. Not the most detailed Ible ever, but it gets the job done. There’s nothing wrong with a video based Ible, some people are just more visual. (Awesome result!)

  • Minimalist Leather Wallet

    Super nice! Love the color, it’s classic. Working with leather is so satisfying. With thicker leathers, sometimes a very small drill bit works well for making lacing holes (after using a wheel punch to mark it evenly along the seam). For a really pro look, bevel the edges a little (with a dedicated tool or even a sanding block with some 400 or 600 grit paper). You can get a cheap set of leather tools that’ll have an edge beveler, a wheel punch, an awl, etc. If you haven’t already, definitely try something wet-formed, like a sheath. It’s great fun to wet the leather and mold it around something to fit it perfectly! Anyway, beautiful work, I’m sure you’ll have that wallet for decades and it will look better and better.

I’m not understanding how you layered the different color cloth and then ended up with the pattern you did. (It looks like the mold is a kinda upside down egg crate, which would push up the cloth and make peaks, but how does that leave you with a flat slab? Does the plastic mold stay ‘in’ the micarta as part of the finished slab?) Thanks for posting and for any help you can offer as far as making a smaller batch of similarly patterned micarta!

Bravo. A little related trivia: the Romanov princesses (tsaritsas really) had a teeny tiny spaniel (that fit in a muff!) which they carried around in muffs very similar to yours. Of course they didn’t require a strap, as anything requiring a hand could be done by a servant. Ah, the good old days lol. To open a door for oneself was unthinkable, impossibly pedestrian.

    Great Ible! Very well put together, and an amazing result. What’s more fascinating and inspiring than Japanese art and culture? (That’s a trick question, nothing is) I love the Japanese way of incorporating art with metaphor, form as microcosm. (In your creation it’s literal - you have a miniature earth made from earth) There’s a parable in each project, and your most important tools are your insight and principles. There are no trivial details, each task is worthy of one’s utmost consideration and effort. It’s a beautiful approach, and fulfilling on a level that a 3D printer can never attain.

This Instructable is for making a soft pineapple ice cream treat that is vaguely reminiscent of a Disney Dole Whip. That’s cool, probably even better for you. But it ain’t the Disney Dole Whip, which contains (ironically) almost no pineapple aside from the juice used to flavor it.

    Yeah, there ain’t no ice cream in Dole Whip! Unfortunately, that probably means there’s some kinda guar gum, or hydrogenated coconut oil, or whatever they use to make it ‘creamy’ without the dairy. Kinda takes the fun out of the diy if you have to source buckets of guar gum!

    I’m not doubting your claim that Disney posted the recipe, I’m saying that Disney is full of whipped doo doo. I’ve seen that Disney “released” the recipe, but what they did is just share a recipe that gets you a sorta Dole Whip at home while disingenuously implying that they’re mixing up wholesome frozen fruit treats for all the kiddies. I guess it would’ve taken the fun out of it to say “We buy giant bags of frozen mix made from 93% sugar and lots of tropical oils!” But the whole thing with Dole Whip is it’s non-dairy. What you get at Disney is real Dole Whip, not a dairified version.

So the enigma that is Dole Whip is there for all to see. https://www.amazon.com/Dole-Soft-Serve-Pineapple-Pound/dp/B01666JBFG

    You should wear it to Sainsburys and tell them you want your Nectar Points... It says ‘reuse’, it doesn’t say HOW! Very cool project, great result!

    Float Tank DIY!

    You may be too young to have seen it, but there was a fairly popular film in 1980 called ‘Altered States’ about a scientist who deep dives into a SDT and decides to spice it up with some good ol’ hallucinogens. Hijinks ensue. I’d always “heard” that prolonged exposure in a SDT could in fact cause psychological harm, and lead to a loosening of ones grip on reality. Any truth to that? Or myth? Let’s say you drop in that baby for 24 hours and let us know? Anyways, awesome and ambitious I’ble!
