Tell us about yourself!
Cement slurry is not very good to fill small air pockets after the casting has cured .The cement powder is ground too coarse to fill these small voids . adhesion is also an issue.If you want a void free cement casting , the best way to achieve that is to vibrate the the mold to expell any air bubbles.This vibrator table is very useful for tight , void free castings.https://youtu.be/GWImU7CCU8g
Yes , both work.Glass fibres are good for strong render / plaster mixes .
You may get away with it .It would mainly depend on the shape of the edges of the object.Cement & water only mix is quite brittle , and sharp edges will be fragile.Aggregate will improve strength of those edges . Slightly rounded over / radiused is best .
Looks great.Anything looks good on you .
Leather glove John.
I had a leather glove when I used mine Ricardo .....LOL
Great job on the restoration Waldemar.I had one of those , exact copy. Try to find the short wooden handle that screws into the threaded centre of the gear wheel.
Now that is GREAT design !About as "classy" a look as is possible .Nice.
Clean & simple lines , a very nice look.This is what good design is all about. Well done Natalia !
Industrial End Tables
Amazing effort , and very inspirational.The instrument you made here can take it`s place among those others.The metal bass is something special too.Very , very cool project.
Nice . I made something similar many years ago .
Brilliantly simple :)

Simple Extendable Table Set With Hand-held Tools
Great looking planter ! Good use of simple hand tools , they are so often forgotten these days.Well done !I like all manner of pallet furniture and have made some in the past..https://www.instructables.com/member/victorvector/...
Good job , and simple project too.These will look better as they age , and get some patina .I have built some of these type of planters in the past , and added horizontal trim pieces around the top . mitered in the corners. It finishes them off nicely.My planters are also made from recycles pallet wood , because it is softwood , I lined the inside of the box with plastic to keep the water and moist soil off the boards to prevent rot. I then lined them with weed mat before adding a compost mix. I also added a hardwood lattice inside the bottom so the water drains out easily. A piece of galv. mesh would be even better. Here is my vote Swinkless , good job !
This was very informative and interesting. I live in Southern Australia , and the conditions here are similar to yours , perhaps slightly less heat in summer , but only marginally.Excellent !
Excellent project.I hope you can find the time in the future to go into more detail about the electronics , for us " electronically challenged " people . Maybe when you get to the new install.I`m looking forward to hear more about it it , congratulations again , it`s a great job !
Paper Mache Class
Nice job .I like it.
I agree Nitro.I built this one with two pallets and a circular saw.If you have the tools , you should use them.

HI Karl.Take or leave this advice , as you see fit:It`s not the power of the amplifier , or the speakers that are all that important here , its the sensitivity of the speakers.It`s quite possible to build a very LOUD little system with a small chip amplifier of only perhaps 10 - 15 watts / channel.There are full range speakers , like for example a Fostex FE 103En ( a small four inch full range)with 94 decibels/watt/metre , output , or maybe Dayton Audio PS220-8 ( eight inch driver , full range).96 dec./watt/mThere are others .With full range drivers there is no need for tweeters or crossovers .
Great idea !That drum skin makes a very efficient passive radiator ;)
Hi Surfer.Regarding your question about when I will be finished on my project .....I don`t know really, its a big job , and I need to re-stock some more funds.Keep up the good work , its appreciated.Thanks for the reply.
