    EYE OF HORUS INLAY

    Very nice job. I've been scrolling for many years and really enjoy it. If you don't mind a tip, there's a much easier way to do scrollsaw inlays that makes perfect fitting inlays every time. If you stack the two pieces of wood and tilt the table a couple degrees, you can get the inlay piece to drop in and fit tight, flush, and perfect to the surface of the wood you're inlaying into. Plus it's much faster since you only cut once and don't have to do any sanding to fit. The angle of the table is determined by the thickness of the wood you're using. For 1/4" wood it's around 2.2 degrees. Also, the direction of cut (clockwise or counterclockwise) determines whether the piece is raised or inlaid. Here is a link to a good Steve Good video on the technique and a link to his pattern he use...

Here is a link to a good Steve Good video on the technique and a link to his pattern he uses to make the round inlaid box in the video. The inlay instructions on the saw angle start at 5 minutes into the video. Pattern: http://www.stevedgood.com/inlay.pdfVideo: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=1&v=ZjecP8KjjrU

    The Wrong Way to Make a River Table

    I have done a river end table and have also used the epoxy resin for other things. There's a chance that if you were to pour epoxy resin over your project that it would fill and make the those cracks dissapear and give it a glass like surface.

  • LED Lit Walnut and Resin-River Coffee Table That Charges Your Phone!

    Beautiful! Do you have to treat the melamine in some way to keep the resin from sticking to it, or is it naturally non stick?

    Custom Cut Coin Necklaces

    This is one of those things where many believe that's the case, but it isn't true. It comes up all the time with coin rings I've made and even with all those penny presses at various places. It's only illegal for fraudulent purposes, like trying to pass of a silver coin as gold or a quarter as an SBA dollar, etc. Here is the part of the US code that states while not encouraged, there are no sanctions or penalties.Section 331 of Title 18 of the United States code provides criminal penalties for anyone who “fraudulently alters, defaces, mutilates impairs, diminishes, falsifies, scales, or lightens any of the coins coined at the Mints of the United States.” This statute means that you may be violating the law if you change the appearance of the coin and fraudulently represent i...

  • DIY Portable and Powerful Bluetooth Speaker

    Very nice, I like it! The only thing I think I would do different if I build one would be to add a 3.5mm audio jack and a volume knob. That would give it a lot of versatility. I've seen the PAM8403 based board with a built in volume POT.

  • Eco Friendly Metal Detector - Arduino

    Excellent! Very nice display layout and well done. "Good" metal detectors are expensive, Whites, Garrett, etc, and at least several hundred dollars is considered the start of good. Where would you place this design as far as ability is concerned on the scale of the name brands?

    For the pots, It looks like pin 2 goes to the center pad on the board where the old pots were. Does it matter which pads pins 1 & 3 go to on the board?
