LCD TV cover instructable? (I thought I saw one, can't find it.)

My boyfriend and I just got a new TV and I don't want to stare at it constantly when we're not using it because it's quite large. :P I know I saw an instructable for a cloth cover, but after 10 minutes of searching I'd had no luck finding it. Anyone have a link to it? :D

custom made tire cover

Last summer I bought my '07 Jeep Wrangler. The previous owner had added some stickers and a spare tire cover to make it look like he had the "Call of Duty" package. That's not my cup of tea, so I took that stuff off. I would like to add my own design to the spare tire cover. I actually have the design ready to go on Photoshop. I though maybe I could take it to a place like Staples, have it printed as a vinyl sign, and then use a strong adhesive to glue it to the old cover, on top of the Call of Duty stuff. I imagine, though, that there are probably some adjustments to this whole plan that would help things turn out better. Any advice?

E Ink to be put on magazine cover

Esquire is going to be celebrating its 75th year with an E Ink cover, the same stuff that's in Amazon's Kindle. There will only be 100,000 copies made for its circulation of 720,000 so grab one if you see it. Magazines always cost two or three times their cover price to make, but this should be way beyond even that. Esquire had to get its own custom battery made and the E Ink can't be too cheap either.So what message is so important for all of this? A flashing message that says, "the 21st Century Begins Now."

Something to block office lighting?

The office building where I work has a conference room that has 4 fluorescent light units, each measuring 28” by 44”.  The problem is, one of the four light units is an emergency unit, and is always turned on.  So when we want to show power point presentations, etc.  the room is never  fully dark.  With the 3 lights being off, it’s just barely dark enough, and it would be so much better not to have the light from the emergency unit.  Due to safety codes, turning off this light is not a realistic option for us.  So I was examining it today and was wondering if someone had an idea to construct some sort of temporary “cover” that we can quickly and securely place over this one light unit while we have our power point presentations?  The cover would have to be lightweight, secure (we would not want it to fall on any clients!), and I think made of some sort of fireproof material, in case someone forgets it’s up there and the heat from the florescent light tubes doesn’t cause any danger of fire.  Each light unit has this metal “grid” that I guess is meant to reflect and disperse the light in an efficient way.  This “grid” is made up of smooth 1/8” metal strips, which create 24 empty space “cells”. The inside of the cells measures 7”X5.5” and is 2.75” deep.  There is a small clearance between this metal grid and the fluorescent tube lights.  And the light unit is 10 feet off the ground. Any suggestions??  Thanks!

Custom Refrigerator Skin

I wanted to figure out how to create a skin for large items such as refrigerators, washing machines,  etc.   I am having trouble conceptualizing the necessary steps to completely hide cosmetic blemishes on large machines and appliances.  Would creating a skin be a good solution?  I am guessing there is a more elegant way than simply placing a large image printout underneath glass?  Also FYI, some of the appliances are completely brand new so I would ideally want a "top layer" solution as opposed to a "painting" solution. Nice to have features: 1.  weather proof 2.  Can be easily swapped with new design

Cement cover over paper (mache) sculpture?

Ok, this might sound as a stupid idea, but i was reading about Papercrete today which sounds fascinating and i will have a try on it. But then this other weird idea came up to me.....i want to make something like a giant rock, and i thought perhaps instead of using papercrete, what if i made the whole giant rock with just paper pulp and then cover it up with cement so it could be waterproof ? is that possible? please give me your thoughts

Cheap plexiglass alternative

So i was going to make a desk. I was gonna make it about 2x3 and make the top out of two pieces of plexiglass, with about a 1 inch hollow area between them. I was gonna put some lights in that area. However, Plexiglass is costing a bit more than i want to spend. so I found this: http://www.homedepot.com/h_d1/N-5yc1v/R-202653810/h_d2/ProductDisplay?langId=-1&storeId;=10051&catalogId;=10053 Its ALOT cheaper. However, can it support a decent amount of weight probably? No ones gonna be sitting on the desk or anything. I would say NEVER more than 50 pounds on it, but 25 is probably gonna be the maximum, and not even that most of the time. (just gonna have my laptop and stuff on it, maybe some textbooks). And im assuming a blue light LED would shine through it fine..I kind of want the frosted look (would sand it down a little bit to get rid of the "bubbles") to give it an effect similar to the lights in this: https://www.instructables.com/id/LED-Glass-Desk/ except without the notifications and stuff.

Book cover Hinge

Hey all. First time poster here (second attempt, since Instructables stopped responding the first time) so hopefully I am posting in the appropriate place. I have in mind a leather-book-style cover for my tablet that I'm very excited to work on. However, I would like to use friction or torque hinges to position the cover at any angle  from the spine in a 180 degree radius and have it stay there, similar to the screen of a laptop rotating around the hinge. I've included a picture that shows the basic design that I'm aiming for, though the hinge itself doesn't need to be ornate. Unfortunately, I don't really know where to find such a thing. I've looked on various furniture hardware sites and taken a trip to the local hardware/home improvement stores, but I haven't found anything that matches what I'm looking for. Common small brass butt hinges would be ideal if they had friction/torque properties to them, but I can't seem to find anything like that. I've never looked for specific hinges before though, so for all I know they've been right in front of my and I didn't realize what they were. Does anyone know where I can find such hinges, or can someone offer up an alternative solution? Perhaps there is a way to add friction to simple hinges bought from a hardware store. Thanks in advance for pointers/advice.

Semi-permanent Shell for Fire Pit to Make an Oven

I'm looking for a semi-permanent solution to making a fire pit into a wood fire oven. The shell could be something modified from an existing item or something from scratch. I'm thinking a dome shape similar to a brick wood fire pizza oven would be best, however I would want to be able to remove it so the bottom portion is functional as a fire pit and could also be used as an open pit/grill. It would probably be more on than off, so semi-permanent is okay. The pit itself would only be about 2 1/2 to 3 feet in diameter, so nothing too big. As far as functions, I would have a grill at the top of the fire pit (maybe height adjustable within the fire pit, but that's getting kinda fancy). Then in "oven mode," I would have the grill in and put a ceramic pizza stone on top of it for baking then the cover on top. And perhaps even without the stone as a smoker/meat slow cooker. Ideally the cover would be well insulated to keep the heat in and well distributed. It would also have a cutout or door for putting in bread or pizza (rather than a cover that lifts off losing a lot of heat in the process). I'm not sure what materials would be good, but it should probably weigh no more than 75-80 lbs. (light enough for one strong person or two middling strength people to lift). Maybe an inner dome of some metal with a layer of some kind of flame resistant insulation and then another outer dome of more metal? It would also have to be weather resistant for cold winters. Some assembly might also be good as the individual parts would be lighter, so long as being in pieces doesn't compromise the overall effectiveness of the "oven". I've tried searching for a few things, but nothing has really popped up that fit this description. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!

DIY Book Cover

Hi everyone, I'm working on a project- making a DIY book cover. I've figured out how to assemble the book already but the cover baffles me. How can I deboss the cover with foil so that the lettering(title) will be on the cloth cover? I was thinking about using black book cloth, or leatherette, but I just don't know how to depress the lettering of the title onto the front cover or the spine itself. Any ideas? Thanks!

Covering

I am building a Sig Tiger rubber band-powered model. I know it's wimpy, but I don't have a budget for anything larger, or a place to fly it. My question is if anyone has experience with model airplane covering. Specifically, I read an article in an old RC Modeler magazine that said plastic wrap, attached with a glue stick, made excellent covering for light models, but that Monokote and Ultrakote will crush light balsa models when it shrinks. Has anyone ever tried this? I'm supposed to use tissue, according to the plans, but ew.Also, I have an ancient U-Control Waco SRE biplane that my uncle built when he was deployed to Korea. It has an old O.S. Max III 35 that has no hope of running again, but I want to at least recover it. Any suggestions for removing old covering? It seems to be Monokote-type stuff.
