that would probably work as well
D'Oh! That is brilliant! I wish I'd thought of that. Would make it so easy.
would that work with plant food as well?
That's a good idea. So far I haven't had any issues, though.

This was a scarecrow I made for last Halloween. I made it so the head had artificial flames and would nod and turn.

Good question. The reason for this is that the reservoir won't do the plant much good if they can't actually get the water. The corner is cut out to allow some soil into the reservoir. This will act as a wick for the water. As the roots pull water out of the soil, the soil will soak up water from the reservoir like a sponge.

Thank you!Yeah I've had a couple seasons where the stuff in the Earthboxes were the only plants that did well, hence the motivation to get more of them while not breaking the bank. Let me know if you have any questions if you attempt these.

Thanks. It actually occurred to me I should have lined the boards up better with the tiles since they're one foot square. Give a little sense of scale :-)
^ try that. I think you're right that part of the URL got cut off
Well if you have any specific challenges that I can help with, feel free to ask.As far as converting to millimeters, an inch is defined as 2.54 centimeters, so to get millimeters, multiply inches by 25.4 1 inch x 2.54 cm/inch x 10 mm/cm = 25.4.Personally, I think inches are a better unit to work with for woodworking than millimeters. :-D
Sorry for the confusion. There wasn't a video of a homemade Jawhorse. The video I was referring to was one by April Wilkerson, but I don't remember what the video was about. She using an _actual_ Rockwell Jawhorse in her project and as an aside, she mentioned that it was a great gift for woodworkers. When I learned that the cost was around $100 apiece (and therefore out of my price range), I created the project illustrated here.
Oops! Yeah I realized halfway through that people were probably going to get sick of looking at my drill press, but I figured better to err on the side of too many pictures.Yes, both my father and brother were very happy with it. I liked it so much that the one documented is the one I built for myself.If and when you try building this, feel free to ping me with any questions you might have.
Great! If you have any questions I'll be happy to help
I believe it was one foot long. It didn't quite fill the entire hole through the vise, but that wasn't necessary. At a guess, I would say that if you have at least three inches of bushing on either side you'll be fine.
Well I drew major inspiration from your project, so it seemed only fair to mention it. Yeah when I was looking at yours, I figured that the blocks used to angle the front legs would be perfect to run the guide rods through. Good luck on adapting yours.

You should try to use a light even pressure throughout the join. Really just enough to maintain control. Let gravity do most of the work. Don't put heavy pressure on either end or you'll end up with a taper
Thanks for the kind words! I was mostly writing this to have something to refer to with the portable workbench Instructable I'm working on

Thanks! I've done two of the workbenches as "prototypes" and will be documenting the third as an Instructable as soon as I get one of the key parts from Amazon.
You bet. Thanks for the inspiration

I'm currently in the process of putting together my own Instructable that takes this idea and runs with it. I built in a quick release vise and converted it over to a mini portable workbench. I'll post a follow up when that Instructable is completed.
