How to build a set of quilting frames.

I am on social security and do hand quilting in my spare time. I have many quilt tops but I am unable to find quilting frames that are affordable so I can finish my quilts. I know I can find instructions on "how to build" on the internet but I don't have the tools or "know how" to build my own. Is there anyone out there that would be interested or available to build me some quilting frames at a reasonable price? If you live anywhere near the east side of Indianapolis, Indiana I would like to talk with you about this project. My email address is ferrarro@yahoo.com. Thank you

Making or modifying eyeglass frames

Instructables I missed? I know I could probably cajole an eyeglass place, but want to do this on the super cheap. Thanks!

Trying to cut bike frames ( for physically impaired person ) ?

Hello once again, I've sorta been sneaking around trying to decide what the best way to go about trying to cut ( basically a bike frame ) without doing it manaually and = or spending too much cash I dont have. Welders look like they'd require a high skill level to hold and I cant really hold- or in fact even BE near things- that causes high or noticable rpm , so the hacksaw doesnt seem too great an idea either . But what i was thinking ,was that I could use some of sort of clamp set up so that I didnt have to hold the hacksaw while cutting the frame ( its really a knee walker frame ) If this seems like a good idea or  any one has any other suggestions or ideas that might allow me to do this  , i really appreciate your opnion on the best way I should go. thanks hele

I am trying to get a website to work correctly. Can any HTML wizards help me? Free Pro membership to the best answer! Answered

I am trying to redesign the website that is used by the company I work for.  The company would prefer it if I could make them a site that uses frames.  This is so it will be relatively easy to change/update pages.  I am not very experienced with using frames, but I have made some good progress so far.  I have two questions that I cannot seem to find the answer to. 1.  How do you add a border with a radius around a framed website? The design that my company liked had a border around it with rounded edges to frame the site.  I have no problem doing this in CSS with a regular website.  However, I cannot get the border to show up around the framed site. I have tried putting a border around the framed page using CSS.  I have also tried adding the border to select parts of the framed page.  (For example: a rounded border on the top, left, and bottom of the left frame panel.)  This does result in a pseudo-border around the site, but the radius does not show up.  It is just a rectangular outline. 2.  Is it possible to have two overlapping background images? There is a strong vertical line and horizontal line on the page as design elements.  I would love to have those lines stretch infinitely across the background.  I know how to do this with one image, but can you layer background images on top of each other? My idea for a solution would be a set of GIF images with transparent sections.  One image would be the horizontal line and the other image would be the vertical.  The place where the two lines meet is a part of the website, so I am not worried about where these images will overlap since they would be in the background.

What polymer is used for this frame? Answered

I've seen a photo of these frames on a social network and i was wondering... Which polymer is used for these frames? Do you see this trasparent thing that hold the stickboy or the squares of the card or the inside of the egg? like something that is popping out of the frame... i was thinking... i can put this frame orizontall... then i can put a surface of this polymer on it and i put inside of it an object... this will be taked down by the gravity and at a certain point it will stop by the flexibility limit of the polymer... and when the polymer is dry i can move it without particular problems... i think this may be a good way to recreate this frames... but i don't know which polymer they used for these ones.

constructing an a-frame, lean-to roof on a garage

I started framing a lean-to, a-frame roof like a deck (with an a-frame "header" and three joist hangers). The joists are angled at about a 45-degree angle and are perpendicular to the garage (on which I hung the header). There will be two 4x4 posts at the end of the 10'x10' roof. When I looked for advice about this framing style, I found nothing. Is this going to be stable? I designed the roof this way because I have 6' reclaimed cedar fence panels that will run down the roof like shingles. Thanks for your help.
