Barrel nuts for your makerspaceView Instructable »
Photos are to give a visual demonstration of the development of the techniques, also known as the "steps" of the instructable. To demonstrate the conscious reordering of what happened to be a spontaneous ordering of the wires (as an "instructable's step", so to speak), it is imperative to show the condition of the wires preceding and following that "step". Looking at the photos following, and as the wires get crimped and screwed into the terminal, it is evident that they follow the correct (i.e. consciously corrected) order. Thank you!
Using sliced hot glue stick as diffuser is ingenious
Glad you liked the trick!
It's always a question of how sweet the individual is. Some people are luckier than other.
Sugar coated. Noted!
In Dubai, the expectation for the cappuccino is to have chocolate powder on top. Big coffee chains such as Costa does it, too. It's not Australia or Seattle but I totally get you.
Excellent. Post a photo I wanna see! hehe

Great suggestion, Cayotica! I've seen these in shops but never used them myself before. Will definitely use your suggestion in the next part of this series (Oh yeah, I have decided to take the concept a step further haha!)
Doug! Absolutely great feedback! I am working on the next instructable in this series and would try to take the concept to a better level. I am thinking along the same direction as your comment. Shorter barrel nut leaving 6 millimeters from each side so a laser cut circle of wood can be plunged to hide the barrel nut entirely. I am also thinking of a thread locking mechanism and an aligning mechanism. Keep up with giving great feedback!
I totally agree with you David. I am really glad seeing how a simple idea creates a small but a rich creative thought space.
Dmitry! You absolutely hacked my mind! I was actually thinking of manufacturing custom bolts with giant flat (washer like) head that can be driven through two blind (or through) holes, somewhat in a similar fashion to tightening the disc on a metal grinder. A great suggestion but requires a fastener that is too custom to attain the "poor man's table" title or agenda which I would love to keep. Thank you for the suggestion!
When you drill from below the chips fall with gravity and you don't burn the wood. If you can get around that while drilling from the top then go for it!
Drill a pilot 1mm or a 2mm hole first on a drill press then as you drill from below using a spade bit it will follow the straight pilot hole.
