My Paper Crane Here it is nearing the end of April and I forgot to blog about the Bag Of The Month bag for March! As you can see I ended up having a sad photoshoot in my car one afternoon while I was waiting to pick up my son after school. I have actually been using this bag all month long. The fabric was one I saw on Pinterest and fell in love with Ring Around The Rosie by Michael Miller. A Big List of Sites That Teach You How To Do Stuff With all due respect to Kevin Smith, the web is no longer only for complaining about movies. In fact, there are a large number of very helpful sites that teach you how to do things.

Electronics · FarmBot Genesis V0.8 hardware integrates Rotary Encoders onto the back of each of the stepper motors. This is important to ensure that FarmBot always knows where it is in the circumstances when it has been inadvertently moved (by kids or pets) or it tries to move but is prevented from doing so due to some obstruction (rocks, branches, kids, pets). Unfortunately, there are no readily accessible add-on rotary encoders from popular sites like Adafruit or Sparkfun (as of September 2014), however, there are a handful of companies who do produce small, add-on encoders that mount nicely to the back panel of the stepper motor and hook onto a second shaft coming from the motor. The encoders modeled in the renderings below are based on those offered by Schneider Electric. As of prototpying V0.8 hardware, low-cost rotary encoders have not yet been found or tested.

She was born to Chinese refugees from Vietnam in the oil-fuelled environs of Calgary, Alta., and by the age of nine she had built a solar-powered toy car.
BarkEater Follies: DIY - Standup Paddleboards (SUP) Part 1: how to build your own paddle board Author's note: To really learn how to build a SUP, spend a few days on Swaylocks, Surfer Steve's, Standupzone and other Internet sites. I spent a few weeks doing that. The following is just my build, presented for what it was. This is not an expert build, and it sets out to exactingly build a complicated design using a labor intensive method.
How to Fold Wet Origami Sounds like an anomaly, right? When I was a kid folding frogs, my mother gave me origami paper that was most certainly dry. But the works below by Vietnamese-American artist Giang Dinh were folded with one *wet* piece of paper. It's a technique called "Wet-Folding", invented by the great Japanese origami master Akira Yushizawa (pictured right). Yushizawa was the first to contextualize origami as more of an artform than a craft, and he did so by introducing a more organic, sculptural look—one with soft and curved creases and rounded shapes. 31 How to Sites Must Check Home » How to » 31 Best How To Sites To Learn Everything You Need To Know In Internet you can find lots of site which helps you to learn lots of thing that we use in our daily life.
