I've tried this before using a blow dryer, it worked well until it blew melted crayon all over the wall. I wonder if possibly a heat gun(like the kind used for shrink tubing on electrical repairs) could work? Maybe just leave all the crayons in a pot and leave it on the roof...
Dude, this was fantastic. The directions are perfect(for me at least) and re-using discarded wood is always awesome when it turns out nice, like this did. Great idea on the hammer handle. Did you use p-chord for the latch string?
Very nice, I am going to try it with a live edge piece I'm working on out of ash. Thanks for the response, keep up the good work!
Regardless of how this turns out in a couple years, this is a really nice piece. Even if the wood acts unpredictably, this is a good instructable, and the hardware you crafted will stay the same and if you want/need can replicate. Two questions though, how many coatsof Fabulon did you use and did you also use the Fabulon on the bark side? Cheers dude, thanks for sharing.
Hey, yes it totally can be done foldable, you just need sturdy enough hinges and clasping brackets to hold the legs to the underside when it's folded!
Those look great, sorry for the very late reply!
Mitch, this is a good design, and the finished project looks great. I hope it worked out well. Do you by any chance have any of the measurements lying around? Thanks for the great post!
So I am working on my second board now, and I'm at the gloss coat stage. You had said you were using 150g of resin and 75g of hardener, with the additive F. I purchased maspro epoxy resin and the accompanying hardener and it says to go 1-1 ratio. Should I be going 2-1 like you are?
Hey Andrew, I really appreciate this post. Very good videos, great tips and excellent commentary. I used clear MAS epoxy and the end result was pretty sweet for my first board, but still had some issue with air bubbles after the glass coat, needless to say, the board definitely has some character. I'm working on my second board now and watching your videos again... definitely appreciate all the steps and meticulous descriptions more the second time around since I have some experience with it and I am avoiding some of the beginner mistakes. I definitely missed the first go around when you said to cut the cut-lap when it's dry but still soft, what a pain in the butt, definitely not repeating that mistake this time. Thanks again!
I don't see why not, do you mean to fold the entire table? I imagine if you mounted the legs with a set of hinges instead of mounting fast with screws or nails to the top, and used some sort of cotter pin, or lock once they were in place then it would work nicely. Now I've got to try it myself. Great idea!
Dude, those look fantastic. I like the original wood color for those 2x4s. Thanks for posting it and I'm glad they worked out so well for you. Good luck. Also, is that planter in the back from reclaimed pallets? Great work!
Dude! That looks fantastic, congratulations and I hope you get long life and joy out of the finished product.

The PP welding is such a great idea and your execution was really awesome. I'm really happy that you made it into a night light as it looks like such a benevolent entity to protect sleep. Keep up the great work and thank you!
This bear is really awesome, I am going to make one for my daughters. Cool post!
Just saw this on Hackaday, congratulations! This is really an awesome idea... also love the Schroeder style piano... I wonder if one could make an upright bass utilizing the same concept... lead to a RPi ELO. Really great work. If you were to place glass or acrylic beneath the LED/LDR bay would the reflection interfere with the sensitivity? Super excited to see this, Thanks!
Those look really nice stacked like that. Great work! Thanks for sharing!
I'm having an issue of tuner sensitivity, I'm using a 1k pot as the tuner and it wants to fluctuate i.e. between 88.3 and 88.4. Any ideas? Other than that it sounds pretty good. Great Job again!
Awesome, thank so much for the quick reply, I'll post how it turns out. Cheers
I was just wondering where the code for this was, I cant find it in the video description. Really nice Instructable though, I'm trying to make the same.
That is a really awesome piece of work and it looks like it would work on my apartment balcony. I'm going to try this out this weekend. Very smart work. Thanks for the post!
Tried the cereal box. Worked out great, but here in south Texas we only got 65% totality. I really appreciate the post as I've never made one of these before it I was surprised how clearly I could see the clouds. Thanks alot!
The Book of Light
This is really a fantastic use of space, shows great vision and follow through. The end result is very crisp and clean, and the philodendron(looks like one) on the top really sets it off. Really impressive
