    GDIS46, he fairly stated he used painted plywood as a cost-saving method and the hardware is available from multiple sources across the world!I think he made his case very well.

  • Making a Lightning Necklace by Using Recycle Materials

    To gm280 Highly unlikely and even then little harm will be done, maybe the foam may smell a little ;-o !I like the effect but would have used the silicone covered type of LED strip, less likely to heat up the foam and stick to things and spreads the light more evenly but all in all Nice!!!

    DIY Japanese Toolbox

    Very nice project excellently executed and outstandingly produced (video'd�) I think I will make one myself with a few minor changes, I'll would angle cut (dovetail as it where) the locking parts for the lid, and I would definitely glue the knot under the lid in the rope, (they always seem to get undone at the most inopportune moments!!!! � ).Tip. I was taught to cut plugs from the same material with a plug cutter (cheap and readily available) then you plug the whole with those as they are full length and cut them flush, then use the rest in the next hole and so on. They are only 1 to 3 inches long as you cut them but you can cut as many from scrap pieces for pennies once you have the cutter.Hmmmm. yes I am a wood worker, sort of professional furniture maker....... �Ed

    High Performance Audio Monitors

    I kind of crinche when I see metal surfaces close to speakers in HiFi situations, never a good thing in my opinion! when I saw the metal had no separation from the sound chamber in your speaker I was aghast, how could you do this I wondered you sound like you know a little more then the basics about all this and this is pretty basic? Why not make an MDF side and then a steel side If you MUST have a steel side???? This can only Detract from the sound quality After all that hard work!!!!!! I am giving constructive criticism, I'm not just being negative. I love HiFi Audio and the speakers look great but they have to FIRST Sound Great !!!!

    The Ultimate Camera Bag

    Absolutely wonderful build, those bags cost three- four hundred bucks but I love them, this is perfect and you did a great job showing us how to make one ! I will definitely give this a try, that means I have to now borrow our (my wife's) sewing machine back that I gave to our daughter because I thought she would use it more (oops, next time ask first.) ? Or I could ask her to make me one?..........? she's such a good daughter........ and sooo creative and handy.........

    Of coarse it will catch the dust you want it to just make sure the filer area is sufficient and the airflow is good you don't need hundreds of cubic feet, but you do need it filtered properly then make sure you have some additional cool air aimed at the nozzle (you may want to separate that! +print a special funnel nozzle for this. )
