    Wow! What great ideas - you remind me of my father who was a millwright and could fix ANYTHING. Amazing work, and please don't apologize about your english. And your videos were superb as well.

    How to Make Hokey Pokey Candy

    Great 'ible. This recipe is the base for the peanut brittle my mother made. Just add a good handful of raw, shelled peanuts at the start of cooking, and continue to cook until the peanuts also turn a nice golden brown. Then add the soda and get ready to pour - it's pretty hectic at the end!

    Woodworking Featherboards

    Nice work! One thought on the birch ply - did you consider some type of plastic instead? I made some several years ago for a Ryobi BT3000 table saw from a cheap (Dollar Store) plastic cutting board. It flexes well, is very resistant to having the featherboard "fingers" break off, but it was a bit of a mess to cut. If you try, go slow with your cuts and expect that you might have some melted plastic bits on the blade and below the table.
