Great idea! I prefer natural for cleaning & disinfecting. I use essential oil recipes for those things. Basically, you're making orange essemtial oil. Great job.
Wow!! What a great idea for miter joints. Very concise instructions and clear visuals. I have to try this joint. Thank you
Looks delicious. Can you tell me how many bite size pieces this makes. Bringing to a family Christmas party.Thank you
How many bite size pieces will one batch make? I want to be sure to bring enough at our family Christmas gathering.Thank you
How many bite size pieces will this make? I plan to bring it to a party on Christmas.Thank youLarry
I'll give it a shot. Still sounds good. And convenientThanks
That sound good also...something else to try.
That sounds good also. Always open to new simple recipes
Do you eat this cold, or can you heat it? Never had cold oatmeal.
The lower the teeeth per inch(TPI), the better for the blade to rip. Ideally, bades with 24 to 40 TPI is for ripping. Blades with 40-50 TPI is for combination cuts. Meaning you can rip or crosscut with it.Sometimes you can get away with 60 TPI, but that may depend on the wood. Using a lower TPI while ripping will show a much nicer finish cut on your boards. 80 to 100TPI is generally used for plywood. Hope that helps.
Thank you Joren. That does make it clearer.
Thank you, that was helpful. Knowing the inside of the ball is towards the viewer clarifies it.Great Instructable.
Forgive me, but I'm a little confused about the eyeball(ping pong ball) part. I cut the good half of the ping pong ball down to about 3/16" , from top to bottom(top of dome to flat edge). Then, you mention to paint a black circle in the center. It looks like it was painted on the inside of the ping pong ball. Is that correct? One of your photos shows the ping pong ball glued to the cardboard backing. So the picture goes over the ping pong ball? Do I place the entire picture over the balls? Can you elaborate on this part? Thank you

Great job! Especially being able to "run with it" after deciding no Mickey Mouse Ears. I made an entire Mickey Mouse Bandsaw box, but painted it with Black & white acylic paint. Gave it to my neice as a Christmas gift. Her sister, mother & her family go to Disney every year!!! I used pine for this. Keep up the good work.
Great job on the build. What a beautiful view you have. Can you tell me what brand & size your telescope is?
Meet Your Saw
In step 4 'Stars', you forgot to mention that after cutting out the star shapes with your exacto knife, we need to paint those cutouts with white paint. I assume you use the same acrylic paint, but white or antique white. Great project. I'll build this for this upcoming Memorial Day. Thank you for this project.
Is there a material list I missed? What thickness is the table top? 1 x lumber?
You're a very creative young lady. I have watched...and saved most of your instructables for my future builds. They would make great unique gifts. Thanks for sharing. God Bless.
Where do you get the charcoal? Great idea. I'm going to try this

Great simple project. Since I already have a simple lumber rack on my wall, this project will be great to put my smaller cuts and plywood. Again, great job!Thank you for sharing your FREE plans.
Outstanding explanation. I will experiment with scrap pieces in an L shape and try those tips.Keep up the good work.
Can you give a few comments on how you were able to round out the L shaped inside corner? I've never done anything like this, and would like to try. Can't afford the Arbortech planing wheel, but came across a carbide cupped wheel from Harbor Freight, that would fit my budget to determine if I want to pursue wood carving.Fantastic job on your bench.
Eerie Glowing Jars!
Since I've only built two so far, I think I need a little more experience. But will do it.
I'll give a step by step instruction here, but will include the photos from my first bandsaw box to aid in understanding it.You can use a block of wood or make a block from laminated layers of 1” wood.In this case, I had a piece of 4 x 4 dimensional lumber I used.1-cut out an outline shape for the exterior of the box. I freehanded a shape.2-From the cut out shape, this is your box, cut apprx. 1/4” off the back. Save it.3-draw an outline for a drawer. You may want to draw a shape following the shape of your box or similer.3-To cut the drawer body, start with the initial cut with the grain. Then you'll end at the entry cut.

Remove the drawer body.4-Before continuing with the drawer, insert wood glue into the entry cut and clamp it with a clamp in order to close the gap.5-Going back to the drawer body, cut approx. 1/4” of the back and front. Put them off to the side6-Draw a line on the face of the drawer body to produce the drawer scoop area. Cut it out. You should end up with a shape similer to a sleigh(high sides). This is the basic shape.7-Sand out the interior of the drawer before gluing on the front and back.8-After all the glued areas are dried sand the drawer enough to smooth out its exterior. Do not sand the drawer or the drawer slot too much, Just enough to slide the drawer easilyFinish as needed.Hope this is clear enough to understand with the pictures.Regards,Larry O'Connor

Again,the pics are not regarding this project, but from the dining table completed earlier, and a few test roundovers I tried before the table. Because I wanted a old distressed look to the table, I used a small roundover router bit, then hand sandeded so it would not look "machined". Not sure if I accomplished that. But I'm happy with it.
Did not build this particular project. However, in making a bandsaw box, I used a bandsaw, files, sanders, and hand sanding to get the shape the final project has.
Although I did not make this particular project, I have built a dining table and bench utilizing pocket holes as well as straight holes in several areas of assembly.
Did not make this project, but did make a bandsaw box that I had to glue, first the blocks of wood together, then various components throughout the project.
I did not make the lawn dice. I was building a pergola and had plenty of straight cuts to make. Here is a photo of the semi-completed pergola. Still needing to wrap lower part of posts and stain them and the deck.Last picture is before pergola
This is a great design, and you did a great job on following that design. However, I'm confused...which doesn't take much.You're showing a cut list 1-18 + 1. I understand that you're saying to duplicate that cut list following the dimensions 1-18. So you now have 2 of each tube for each dimension shown per column. Is that correct?What throws me is what the finished project looks like when you're unfolding it. the lower half tubes are shorter than the upper tubes. I'm lousy at looking at an abstract type art and not seeing what others see. Is it at all possible to provide a numbered layout diagram of the tubes, matching the dimension list you provided?Thank you. Again, great build.

Will this exact size jig, work with any size item needed to find center?
PhotonyDid you know you can also cut a circle from a table saw, using a similar jig?Also, Marco, what size bandsaw did you use for this project? I have only a 10 inch saw and my blade height only goes to 4 inches(without guard). How would you cut a full sphere in half? This is a fantastic project. You did a great job. For a young person, you're very patient, having to make so many circles. One more thing. When you cut the bandsaw blade width through the plywood, will that be wide enough to rotate you plywood to start your circles?Thank you for the project.A
Will this type of epoxy work, and do I need to buy a full gallon of this. This is for 16 oz.https://www.michaels.com/easy-cast-clear-casting-epoxy/10408248.html
Great project. For not having power tools, great job. Addressing the rough feel after applying stain. I just started in woodworking, and have learned to read the directions on the stain and finish. In addition I watch youtube videos for ideas. Minwax always recommends a pre-stain after final sanding, especially on softer woods. This helps the stain to have a more even look rather then a splotchy look. After applying the stain, and then apply a polyurathane...2-3 coats, with light sanding between coats gives the wood a smooth finish. Poly urathanes come in satin, semi-gloss, and gloss finish. So even if you don't use stain, the poly will help if sanded between coats.
