DIY Industrial Black Pipe Bookshelf! : 13 Steps. I sanded each panel down to 120 grit and then applied a coat of hard wax oil.

DIY Industrial Black Pipe Bookshelf! : 13 Steps

This is my new favorite finish at this point. It is really easy to apply, all you have to do is wipe it on, let it soak in, and then wipe right back off! Hard wax oil soaks in and hardens in the wood fibers, with a very thin film layer on top. This leaves a really nice finish that feels like wood - not plastic, like polyurathane would do. Quick note: I started to drill the holes in the panels before applying the finish. Wooden Blocks Wall Art : 5 Steps. Labyrinth Puzzle Box : 13 Steps.

Building Giant Articulated Hands (carved From Wood for Social Distancing) : 24 Steps. These are my pile of "prototypical fingers", which is still seems like an uncomfortable phrase to use for some reason.

Building Giant Articulated Hands (carved From Wood for Social Distancing) : 24 Steps

It took a little while to work out the best design to make the finger function both by letting me collapse it down by pulling a string and then using a bungee cord to return it straight again. Luckily, the CNC router is perfect for something like this because I can tweak the design and cut fingers until I get a working prototype. But now that I've mentioned CNC, feel free to skip the rest of the album because the officially means this is no longer a real woodworking project any more. With that figured out, I'm able to design all 5 fingers using the original pointer finger as a guide. I also separated out the holes that are the pivot points and cut those out first so that I could utilize those holes to insert screws to hold the board to the table while the CNC cut out the pieces.

Considered one of the first supercars to ever be made, it’s difficult to believe that the Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale dates back as far as 1968.

The classic Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale gets a fan-made makeover after 52 years!

The 33 Stradale (which happens to be one of the rarest and most iconic automobiles of today, selling for well over $15 million) practically set the stage not just for the Italian manufacturer’s legacy, but for other supercars to follow suit… and although it looks good even today, 52 years is long enough to want to see a contemporary design refresh.

Card Stock Flying Dragon Paper Airplane : 6 Steps (with Pictures) - Instructables

The ruddervators should be raised a couple of degrees. Throw the plane straight and level, with little force. Repeat, and throw as consistently as possible. You can use the paper clip to influence the pitch (nose up or nose down) by sliding it forward or back a couple of millimeters. Make a little pencil mark on the side of the neck, once you've found a good position for it, so you can quickly position it after a crash. You can use the little rudder (on the bottom fin) to influence the plane's yaw, but a tendency to turn left or right is likely due to a slight curve of the body.

This automatic tuner just takes seconds to accurately tune any string based musical instrument!

Have you ever attended a gig where you cheer on the artist when they come onstage and then awkwardly wait for 10 minutes while they tune their instruments? Not that anyone is getting aggressively mad about it but it certainly isn’t the best thing to keep your audience waiting when it could have been avoided by using a more efficient tuning process. Roadie3 is an automatic multi-instrument tuner that saves you time without compromising on the accuracy – let’s turn it up!

This tiny pod-shaped device is the world’s smallest reusable water purifier. Simply drop the GoPure pod into any bottle of tap water and it instantly begins purifying and remineralizing it, effectively saving you big bucks by not having to buy mineral water bottles each time… while obviously giving you access to pure, potable water. Designed as a ridiculously tiny, reusable device, the GoPure pod comes with a plastic housing on the outside and a porous ceramic core on the inside. Through physical movement, convection currents, and Brownian motion, the water remains in continuous contact with the core, which in turn acts as a magnet to attract impurities. This process effectively eliminates common contaminants in tap water like lead, chromium, arsenic, copper, mercury, chlorine, fluoride, and E.coli, while continuously neutralizing bad taste and odor, and balancing the pH to an ideal 7.4.

The tiny, portable nature of the GoPure makes it perfect to take with you wherever you go. Designer: PuriBloc Click Here to Buy Now.
