  • Beginning Woodworking: Making a Bench Bull - a Basic Miniature Multipurpose Workbench

    I really like the idea. Portable bench top tools. Why not a portable bench top? You could make this as big or as small as you would want.

  • DIY Magnetic Hand-Saw Guide - Extremely Accurate Cuts!

    Yes, I have some Japanes style saws. They are good for somethings and push saws are good also. And yet at the beginning of your instructable, you indicate the need for your square because of your saw bending: "However, it is very thin, and doesn't have any aligning support on the top, so it bends really easily while sawing." So are you saying you are sawing wrong?I think you came up with a nice solution for a problem you were experiencing with your saw. I think it will help others. There are other solutions. All I am saying to other people if your saw is bending other people may want to consider a thicker saw and a push saw. I say if your setup works for you do not change it.As far as as less waste material (saw dust) between a thinner blade and a thicker blade, at least for ...

  • DIY Magnetic Hand-Saw Guide - Extremely Accurate Cuts!

    You could use part of a steel square tube. Put a magnet on it which would magntise the whole thing. It would do the same thing and last longer.Or just use a square.Your main problem is this "However, it is very thin, and doesn't have any aligning support on the top, so it bends really easily while sawing." Even with a square you make the job harder with a flimsy blade. I would get a better saw with a thicker blade. It will make your sawing easier.

  • Amazing Homemade Pizza Dough

    Other variation suggestions:use 00 flour. I use caputo. Red bagged 00 flour is more for general use but makes nice pizza. Blue bagged 00 flour is made for pizza.If you want big bubbles in your pizza dough after flattening it out, let it rise in a warm oven all day, give or take. I use a heating pad without the liner to provide the warmth in the oven, with oven of course off. Just plug the heat pad into a near by outlet, put the heating pad at the bottom of the oven and close the door with the electrical cord coming out. The heat pad trick also works for rising dough before flattening or regular bread making.
