Outdoor Storage Bench // Woodworking How To
 
04:46
This outdoor storage bench is a very simple woodworking project! Sponsored by http://www.wooditsreal.com/ Subscribe to my channel: http://bit.ly/1k8msFr Second Channel: http://bit.ly/iltms-2 We've got a pool, so we also have LOTs of pool noodles and other backyard stuff. In an effort to hide the pool supplies and toys away when not in use, I made this SUPER simple outdoor storage bench out of basic lumber from the home center. It's made to stay outside, house things that don't mind getting wet (like pool noodles) and can be built in an afternoon.

Mold and cast an action figure ( or anything ) // How-To
 
04:55
It's easy to make an accurate copy of something with a silicone mold. You can cast a copy in resin, wax and lots more. I got all of my molding supplies from Inventables.com, links below: I've got links to everything you need on my site http://www.iliketomakestuff.com/how-to-mold-and-cast-an-action-figure Want to support ILTMS?

The one occasion that I tried it out was to make some climbing holds, which worked surprisingly well, actually. I was able to find everything I needed at inventables.com so I decided to give it a go. I was surprised at how well it worked on the first try. Although the mold wasn’t perfect, and the cast wasn’t either, they were both really close.. and for my purposes, good enough. Having done some research, I found that having a vacuum chamber (I have to see if I can make one of THOSE) is hugely beneficial for removing the air bubbles from both the molding and casting materials. Check out my process below, and if you have more experience with silicone molds, please leave some tips and tricks in the comments below! Here’s what you’ll need: (purchasing via these affiliate links supports ILTMS) Oomoo 30 silicone rubber - http://amzn.to/1VuTwTM Mold Release Agent - http://amzn.to/1QPrJvS Color matching resin - https://www.inventables.com/technologies/color-matching-molding-resin?ref=iltms Measure your item, then add 1/2″ to each side. Measure out four strips of plastic or foamcore for the box sides. Cut the sides out, just make sure the height is well above your object’s height. Cut a square for the bottom piece of the box. Hot glue your object in the center of the box bottom. Hot glue on the walls of your box. Seal all cracks with hot glue. I used Oomoo 30 for the mold material. Mix the parts at a 1-to-1 ratio. Mix thoroughly, scraping the sides and bottom fully. Slowly pour into your mold in a thin stream to reduce bubbles. After it’s cured, remove the box from the mold. Cut a serpentine pattern on two sides. When you’ve opened the mold enough, remove your object. The molds maintain ALL of the tiny details. Spray the inside of the mold with a release agent. Using wooden side supports, tape the mold to keep it closed. Mix your resin. In this case, I used a 1-to-1 mix urethane resin. Slowly fill the mold, spinning the mold to fill pockets and release air bubbles. After it fully cures, remove the cast item. Check out the final result! Second channel: bit.ly/iltms-2

Need a silly t-shirt to surprise a friend with? Printing it yourself is the cheapest way to make that happen! Kids can even get the hang of printing VERY quickly and be apart of the entire process, which is awesome! Here are a few things that I didn’t cover in the video that I think will give you better results. Use high dpi screens. These provide finer detail, and have significantly improved my prints. Have someone hold your frame so that you can use two hands to evenly pull the squeegee. If you don’t have access to a dryer for heat setting, you can cover the print with a piece of paper and iron it for a minute. If using a dark material, look for an ink labeled “super opaque”. You’ll get a brighter colored print. You’ll need a screen and squeegee to start. Also, some photo emulsion for screen printing. Add water to the sensitizer, then mix it with the emulsion. Mix thoroughly until it’s an even green color. Pour just a small amount onto the screen. Use the squeegee to spread it evenly on both sides of the screen. Try to get even and full coverage by alternating directions and sides. Dry the emulsion in front of a fan and IN THE DARK. After it’s dry, quickly lay your artwork, backwards, on the back of the screen. You can print your art on transparencies at most office supplies stores or copy centers. Tape the art in place, then lay on a piece of glass to hold it against the screen. Apply a very bright light for 30-45 minutes. You can also use sunlight, but the time may vary depending on cloud cover and placement. The areas covered by your art do not get exposed when you remove the transparency. Use a light spray and soft toothbrush to wash out the unexposed emulsion. Be careful not to use too much force when spraying it out or you will remove emulsion around your design as well. Use painters tape to mask any areas that you don’t want to print yet, or areas where the emulsion isn’t intact. Layout your shirt on smooth, flat surface and remove wrinkles. Place your design where you want it to be printed. Lay a thick bead of ink above the art, extended past both ends. Be sure to add extra ink above large areas to be printed. Even though I’m working alone here, you’ll have better luck to have someone hold your screen, then use two hands to evenly pull the squeegee fully across your screen. Remove the screen and wash out all of the ink before it dries. After the ink dries, run your shirt through a clothes dryer for 5 minutes to heat set the print. The screens can be reused by cleaning them with emulsion remover. Spread a small amount across both sides of the screen. Then use a hose to wash out the emulsion until the screen is clean. Dark inks will stain the material of the screen, but this will not affect future prints. Just make sure to remove all of the emulsion. Second channel: bit.ly/iltms-2

While on a Google hangout with my Patreon supporters, my friend Evan mentioned making a sheet metal brake. I started looking into it and found lots of DIY versions online. There were all different types requiring different tools and providing different results. I mashed up techniques from several of them and made one in an afternoon!This is a 4 ft version that clamps down to an existing table when in use. When I'm finished with it, I can easily hide it away in seconds. This is great for folding aluminum, steel and more. There are lots of different ways to make these tools, some of which don't even require welding! Check it out! Want to support ILTMS?

How to make a dust collector with a wet/dry vac

In my new shop, I needed dust collection, but didn't have room for a huge collector. Instead, I used a wet/dry vac and a cyclone, along with some blast gates.

How to make a Guitar Case // Woodworking
 
08:33
Check out how I made a custom guitar case (it's super easy)! SPONSORED by Audible - http://audible.com/makestuff Subscribe to my channel: http://bit.ly/1k8msFr Second Channel: http://bit.ly/iltms-2 As I was packing up my house, office and shop to move, I realized that my Fender Stratocaster guitar didn't have a hard case. Replacement cases are pretty cheap, but since I'm me, I decided to make my own. A lot of lightweight cases are made from cardboard, so this one (made out of plywood) is a bit stronger, although it's still not meant to be a flight case. I tacked together the plywood and wrapped the entire thing in orange Tolex. The inside is made from upholstery foam covered in velvet to keep the guitar secure on the inside without worrying of scratching it. To protect the outside, I added all black hardware (corner protectors, latches, handle, hinges). The project is very easy (although a little messy due to the amount of spray adhesive) and anyone can pull it off with minimal tools.

Installing a snorkel on a Land Cruiser (FJ80)  // How-To

I drilled a 3 inch hole in the side of my Land Cruiser (FJ80) to add a snorkel. It was really scary.

Everything else is listed above. The template that comes with the kit is almost entirely wrong, so ignore it. Instead, I measured the sizes and placement of the entire snorkel back side. I translated my location for the center of the big hole to the side of the truck, added some blue tape. From this center point, I drew the large circle. I used this circle for reference and modified it's placement a little bit (although it still felt like a guess). I removed the headlight (one screw) to access the fender. The stock air intake came off by removing a hose clamp and bolt. It takes a little Tetris skill, but the intake will slide out of the headlight opening. I used a punch to mark the center of my hole. I drilled a small pilot hole (kind of scary). Then I drilled out the large hole (VERY scary). To find the placement of the rest of the holes, I put the template on and covered the incorrect holes with tape. I poked holes to match up with the real holes in the snorkel. I added a few pieces of double sided tape to it as well. I fit the snorkel in place, and taped the edges of the template down. I punched each one of my newly laid out holes. I drilled a very small pilot hole for each one. I enlarged the holes with a larger bit, making them slightly bigger than necessary so I had a little wiggle room. Here they are, all drilled out. The kit comes with threaded rods, each with a hex opening in one end. I added threadlocker and screwed them in. I made sure they were all tightened down with an allen key. My first test fit was close, but not exactly where I wanted everything to sit on the curves of the truck. I opened up the holes a little, and drew a larger cut  out for the big hole. I used a grinder to reshape the hole until the snorkel sat where I wanted it. I added the plate for the upright, leaving the screws loose so that the plate could move a little bit. The back of the plate got a little double sided tape. I sat the snorkel in place, pressed the tape to the truck, and removed the screws. The plate stayed in it's desired location on the upright. I drilled through the holes in the plate, into the upright. Here it is after removing the plate, and tape. I sprayed all of my newly added holes with rust inhibitor spray. They also all got a coating of RTV silicone to stop water leaking. I tried to cover all exposed metal. I riveted the top plate to the upright. I also added a seal of silicone to the rivet holes and around the outside of the plate. I even added some silicone to the rubber hose connection, after pushing it onto the snorkel. I pushed the snorkel into place, but the rubber hose made it not sit flush against the truck. It's very thick rubber. Screwing in the upper bracket helped draw the snorkel against the truck some. I ended up using a clamp to push and hold it in place while threading on the nuts. The bolts were really difficult to get to, but eventually, I got washers and nuts on all six of them.   I tightened up the two hose clamps around the rubber hose connection. The headlight went right back in place with the single screw. The final pieces was adding the snorkel head with the included black hose clamp. It was complete! My first addition to my company car!

How to install hardwood flooring (Nail down) // Home Renovation
 
05:48
Anyone can install nail down hardwood flooring and it looks AWESOME! Subscribe to my channel: http://bit.ly/1k8msFr Second Channel: http://bit.ly/iltms-2 Last time on my home renovation series, we laid down some floating hardwood floor in our bonus room conversion. It's a great product but a bit too expensive to carry throughout the entire house. For the rest of the home, we decided to nail down hardwood floor so that we could spend the money on a harder, nicer looking wood. Nailing down flooring is something that ANYONE can do and it not only makes the rooms look nicer, but also adds value to the home over all! The first step is to clean up the subfloor, getting it free of all debris including staples. Then add a layer of underlayment as a moisture barrier. When laying the actual floor, the first few rows will need to be nailed down by hand. After you get far enough from the walls, you can use a pneumatic nailer to make the process go MUCH faster! This entire room took me about a day an a half to complete.

Miter Saw Station // Woodworking How To

See how I made a simple miter saw station! Sponsored Promo Code: “make” for $50 off a premium mattress: http://www.casper.com/make Subscribe to my channel: http://bit.ly/1k8msFr Second Channel: http://bit.ly/iltms-2 MORE PROJECTS, POSTS AND EVENTS http://www.iliketomakestuff.com In my old shop, I never really had room for a proper miter station. I dealt with it but also ways to move things out of the way to cut an 8' piece of material and come up with creative (and some times dangerous) stop block situations. In the new shop, I have plenty of space, so it was time to make a dedicated place to use the miter saw. I didn't want to go overboard with storage or complexity and wanted it to still be relatively compact. I also had 2 days to build it in between projects, so it had to be simple.The only real requirements for me were that it had to be cheap, easy, fast and it needed a sliding stop block system. I think I hit all of those points while still getting a solid work surface that has PLENTY of space for future improvement in the form of storage. There is space above and below to add storage and the simply dust collection ports help keep the whole area clean.

They wanted to replace it with some floating shelves that looked like a reclaimed beam. I figured it’d be easier (and cheaper) to fake it than wait on finding the right beam. It was interesting because one side of the inset was brick, and the other was drywall. This is an extremely simple project that could be adjusted to just about any situation. If you don’t have an inset like theirs and are just interested in a floating shelf that hangs on a wall, I’ve got one of those here that you can check out! Oddly enough, I’ve got a different set of friends who also want a floating shelf piece, but it will be entirely different than either of the two I’ve done previously. I’ll be posting it in the near future as well, so keep an eye out! First, I cut 1×12 pine down to the width of my shelves. Next, I trimmed to shelf depth, minus the face thickness (1/2″). I trimmed the end of a pallet slat flush, before cutting it to shelf width. On the table saw, I trimmed off just enough to remove the rough edge. Then ripped the slat to final shelf thickness (2 1/2″). I ripped scrap 3/4″ pine into strips at 1″ wide. Then I cut these strips to match the depth of the shelves. I glued these strips down to the pine board, keeping them away from the outside edges. I used brad nails to hold them in place while the glue dried. I added glue to the top of those strips. After sandwiching on another pine board, I nailed them together. All of the front faces of the boards then got covered in glue. The pallet strip was nailed on to become the shelf face. I used a rasp to tear up the smooth cut edges, matching the ruggedness of the pallet strip. Using an orbital sander, I smoothed out any sharp or rough areas. I used a dark stain to make the wood match better and look like an old beam. Finally, I cut two more 3/4″ strips for each shelf. I used a Leica laser level to transfer my shelf locations to the side walls of this inset area. I transferred the two marks to the 3/4″ strips. Then I drilled a 3/8″ hole on those marks. I matched up those holes with the marks, and drill shallow pilot holes with a masonry bit. Then drilled the full depth holes. The 3/4″ strip was attached to the brick with Tapcon screws. I followed the same process for drilling the holes to the other side. Since it was drywall, I enlarged the holes to fit my anchors. I pushed in two drywall anchors capable of holding 100+ lbs each. I drove screws in to mount the strip to the anchors. The shelves slid right onto the 3/4″ strips. The shelves turned out great! Even up close, they look almost like a solid beam.

Floating Coat Rack (with cubby) // How-To

I cut down three pieces at 5" wide for the shelf section. Using those pieces as a guide, I set a stop block. Then I cut two matching width pieces for the end caps of the cubby. Then I set a stop block to cut off 1 1/2" from the piece that would become the back panel. This is to help it fit inside the cubby. I dry fit the pieces in place to test. I marked along the bottom of the cubby so I wouldn't cut below that line. Then I cut out a large section that was behind the cubby. I set my table saw blade to 45 degrees. Then, using the cutout from above, I split it approximately in half. One of these pieces got trimmed down to 20" long, to become the wall cleat. The shorter length is to allow the shelf to slide back and forth on it. I dry fit everything again and marked all joints with a line for adding biscuits. I also set the remaining cleat on the underside of the top panel, and marked for biscuits. Using a biscuit jointer, I added slots on all necessary pieces. Marking all of the pieces ahead help make sure the biscuit slots line up. I added glue to all of the slots and joint faces, then added biscuits into the slots. All of the biscuit jointed panels were clamped together to dry. The angle on the cleat made it hard to clamp, so I just glued it in place. For biscuit jointing, you just have to line of the mark that you made, which should cross the joint. The now cut out back panel got glued and screwed onto the back of the box. With it flipped over, I added glue to the inside back surfaces. Then I pushed in the back panel as far in as it would go. I added some deep throat clamps to force the panel against the back to dry. Using blue tape, I masked off the bottom front panel. Also, I masked off the front faces of the cubby, trimming it to the edge with a sharp knife. Using a 7 oz. color sample, I painted the front facing panel. I also painted the inside of the cubby, covering all of it with two coats. After it dried, I removed the tape and scraped away any paint that seeped under the tape, with a utility knife. I covered the entire piece with two coats of PolyCrylic. On the front panel, I marked the center point, then the center point of each end (splitting the face into quarters). Then I laid out the coat hangers centered on my marks. I predrilled the two holes on each hanger, so the screw wouldn't drift when being screwed in. Then all three hooks were screwed in place. I predrilled three holes in the wall cleat, one in the center, two at 8" from the center mark. I screwed the cleat to the wall via the center hole, then leveled the cleat. Holding it level, I added the two remaining screws. Finally the shelf was hung onto the cleat, and adjusted laterally for placement. Second channel: bit.ly/iltms-2

I removed the cut off nails in the places where a saw might hit them, but left others when they were not in the way. I marked the length of the tray bottom on my darker boards. I cut all of the bottom boards to length, being careful to avoid nails. I used a simple hold down jig to get a clean edge on one side of each piece. This clean edge can be used against the fence to get a parallel cut edge. This jig is a create alternative to a joiner in some cases. I cleaned up the opposite edges of the bottom pieces. My side pieces were pretty straight, so I trimmed off the rough edge. Then I ripped the side pieces down to 2" strips. The end panels were cut to length on the miter saw. I cleaned up the faces on these as well. I glued up the bottom pieces as a panel, clamping from the top and bottom. I ran the side and end pieces through the planer to smooth the faces. You could also just sand them with an orbital sander. After it had dried, I put the cut edge of my glued panel against my sled and squared off the other edges . I sanded down the top surface of the panel, just enough to loosen dirt and remove splinters, but not enough to remove coloring or character. I set my side pieces against the panel and marked where to cut so that they were an exact fit. These were cut to length on the miter saw. I sat the side pieces in place and measured the full width for the end panels. I marked the center line and measured out the width and height on the end panels. Then I added two nails at the same height as the side panels. Using the nails, I bent a flexible ruler into an arc and traced the shape onto each piece. I cut out this curve on the bandsaw, but a jigsaw would work as well. These pieces were both squared off on the miter saw. They were not exactly the same, so I clamped them and sanded then to match. I marked circles in the center and 1 1/4" on each side. Using a 1 1/4" forstner bit, I drilled out all three holes, which slightly overlapped. I cleaned out the opening with a chisel. I used a flexible sanding block to smooth out the inside of the handle. The outside of the panel, and inside of the handle, were lined with blue painters tape. I trimmed the tape off to be flush with the inside face of the panels. I made sure to get this trimmed as closely as possible. I sprayed a coat of spray lacquer over all of the pieces to seal up the edges of the tape. This will stop paint seepage. Then I sprayed several thin coats of spray paint over the pieces, doing a light sanding after the first coat to smooth the raised grain. When the tape was removed, the edges were very clean and sharp. I sat the pieces around the bottom panel, and nailed them together with a brad nailer. I nailed the pieces to each other and to the bottom panel. The whole piece was finished off with a few coats of spray lacquer. Second channel: bit.ly/iltms-2

How to make a Map Cabinet // Woodworking

I was asked to make a cabinet to hold the prints that are ready for pick-up. We decided on a traditional-looking map cabinet, but have more shelves than drawers. Here's how to make a map cabinet. I created a Fusion 360 model of the map cabinet so that my brother and sister-in-law could approve the design. The model provided dimensions to cut and assemble the map cabinet case. I built the side supports by cutting down a 1x4 pine board and assembling the rectangular side frames using my pocket hole jig. Then I used my router and a rabbeting bit to create a slot for the thinner plywood side panel. These side frames were attached to the plywood bottom, again, using pocket screws. The plywood top extends out over the front and sides but not the back. This cabinet will sit against the wall, so a decorative overhang on that side of the map cabinet was unnecessary. The top was also attached to the sides and the case to the 1x4 base with,you guessed it, pocket holes. My brother and sister-in-law had a paint color already in mind to match their studio, so painting was pretty simple. Josh and I used some small rollers to apply 2 coats of the dark blue eggshell paint. I chose this type of paint because it isn't terribly durable. They wanted it to look a bit worn, so naturally over time it will get dinged and the paint will scuff. Once they are happy with the level of distress, they will apply a clear coat to lock in the look. The shelves were relatively easy do make. I cut some 3/4 inch plywood making sure to leave enough room for a 3/4 inch band of pine on the front edge. Rather than making the shelves adjustable like on my Simple Bookcase, I secured them in place using pocket screws. If you wanted didn't want dedicated spacing between the shelves, then you could totally use a shelf pinning jig to make the spacing adjustable. It is important to note that I did paint the shelves before mounting them in the map cabinet. The thinner gaps between the shelves would make it a nightmare to paint afterward. To cover the back of the map cabinet, I used a sheet of 1/8 inch thick luan plywood. I cut this piece to fit over the back, making sure to overlap the sides, bottom, and top by just a little bit. Small brad nails were used to secure the back in place, but small staples would also work. We also painted the luan sheet before attaching it to the map cabinet. I really hope you liked this project, I know my brother and sister-in-law are really excited to have a new addition to their photography studio and it looks amazing in the space. It is a simple project that really adds some dimension to an interior design and can give your space a unique look. If you liked this woodworking project, you'll love some more of my projects!

How to make a modern studio desk // Woodworking & Metalworking

I needed a new minimal desk for my office/studio! See how some basic woodworking and metalworking came together! Subscribe to my channel: http://bit.ly/1k8msFr Second Channel: http://bit.ly/iltms-2 Since we moved and I turned my storage room into an office, it was time to make a new desk! Also, I've been saving several 1" thick boards of teak for a few years, waiting for just the right project.  I intentionally painted my office white and grey to have a good plain base to work on, so this furniture needed some warmth, and teak is one of the most beautiful woods!Like my old desk, I wanted it to sit in a corner but this time be more minimal. I wanted dedicated risers for my monitor and audio monitors.  Technically, it's an extremely simple build that includes some woodworking and metalworking but I LOVE the final result. Check it out!!

I removed the shelf to reuse it. Using a pry bar, I removed the ledger that the shelf and rod were sitting on. I patched the holes with some spackling. I first cut the shelving top, since it was the widest piece. The entire unit was made from pine 1"x12". Then I setup a stop block, clamped to my table to cut the shelves all the same width. This stop block is well behind the blade, to prevent pinching. I cut all five shelves to length. I countersunk three holes in each end of the top piece. I spread glue on the opposite side of the holes I'd added. I set the top in place up against the side panels. I used a corner clamp to hold the pieces at a 90° angle. I screwed the top to the side panels. I did the same for the other side. I cut two pieces of scrap to the same size, to act as shelf spacers. I slid these pieces up against the underside of the top panel. Then I slid the next shelf up against the bottom of the spacers. This shelf was predrilled (with countersink) and screwed in on both sides. I followed the same pattern for the rest of the shelves. I avoided glue initially so that the pieces wouldn't slide around, but once the sides were completely on, I backed out all of the screws. Then I added glue to the end of each shelf. I screwed them all back together. The pre-existing holes helped line the boards up correctly. I measured the area under the bottom shelf and cut a piece to fit that space. I used some brads to hold it in place. All of the screw holes were filled with wood putty and sanded smooth. The whole unit was sanded and painted white. I found the center of the closet and set the shelf in place. Then I marked where the shelves hit the base board. Using a cheap multitool, I cut along the line to separate the trim. I pried away the trim pieces and patched the holes with spackle. I cut four pieces of 1"x4" pine to match the depth of the closet. I painted the top, bottom and one side of them white. (The other side doesn't need paint). I found a stud, then countersunk two holes in each board. I screwed in the top hole, and used it as a pivot point to level the board. Then I secured it with the second screw. I added a screw to each end, driving them into the corner studs. I followed the same method for the other three pieces. I set my old top shelf in place. I screwed it to the top of the new shelving unit. I measured out from the wall and screwed in a pole socket. Then I matched this location on the opposite side, and added the other socket. I did the same for the other three poles. Using a cut off wheel on my grinder, I cut standard closet rods down to four sections of the correct length. These pieces dropped right into the sockets. Finally, I cut two more pieces of pine to fit the gap on each side of the shelving unit. They were painted white, set in place and leveled. From the inside of the shelving unit, I drilled and screwed into the end of the shelves. Second channel: bit.ly/iltms-2

That’s because I’ve written blog posts, here and here, about this exact build. If you look at those, you’ll get a MUCH more in depth look at the process that I went through to make the original version of this Pi arcade. I’m not one to repost content, but since I’m starting to move toward building the full size arcade cabinet, I thought it’d be good to make a video of this portion of the project, so that my newer audience members have the context. While making this video, I actually found that the software that I use, RetroPie, has been updated and SIGNIFICANTLY improved! It’s fantastic !! Kudos to those guys for making a really stellar package that is free for anyone to use!!! Since I made my original version, the controller board, IPAC2, has also been updated. The newer version has some new options, and looks pretty great, although I have no real reason to replace mine. Obviously, this one isn’t much to look at. It’s just a prototype to explain how the controls go together and will be put into a much better package (and wired in a nicer way) in the final arcade cabinet. Here's what you'll need: (purchasing via these affiliate links supports ILTMS) http://www.ultimarc.com/ipac1.html - IPAC controller http://amzn.to/15Wa6ZO - Raspberry Pi http://amzn.to/17IqtKg - 8GB Micro SD card http://amzn.to/1D8eJwO - Female wire connectors http://amzn.to/1ylmlqw - Hook up wire http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-LED-lit-Arcade-Push-Button-Mame-Multicade-Choice-of-5-Colors-/221064005914?hash=item337871091a - Arcade LED Buttons http://amzn.to/1BKijeX - Joystick http://amzn.to/1ylnfmM - Wire Stripper http://amzn.to/1tMfdqr - Wifi USB Adapter http://amzn.to/18DNZZT - Power adapter (for Raspberry Pi) http://amzn.to/1LAeiiG - Silhouette Portrait http://amzn.to/161gMG9 - Transfer paper http://amzn.to/1tQZNBd - Black vinyl You’ll need a control board like this IPAC-2. Also, a Raspberry Pi and a small SD card. Using free software, add the disk image to the SD card, in one simple step. Plug in the SD card, HDMI cable, USB keyboard and power to the Raspberry Pi. It will boot right up and be ready to play with the keyboard. Add your own games by putting them on a thumb drive and plugging it in. The system will automatically add them. I made button designs in Adobe Illustrator. Then cut them out, in vinyl, on a craft cutting machine (Silhouette Portrait). Cut and apply a piece of transfer paper over the vinyl. Roughly cut out each individual sticker. Take apart a button by twisting the switch. Peel the back, apply the sticker to the button, and peel the front off. It will leave behind the cut out shape. Make a wiring daisy chain with one female plug per button. Make three daisy chains in red, black, and green. Make a single wire, with female plug, for each button. Layout your control board (this was a very rough prototype). Drill holes for each button and joystick. Add a simple frame to lift it off the table. Screw in the joysticks from the back side. Drop in buttons from the front. Screw on rings from the back to hold buttons in place. Attach wires as shown on each button. Also add wires to the joysticks (no LED = no red & black daisy chain) Wire the joysticks and all buttons to relevant terminal on IPAC. Attach the end of the green daisy chain to the ground terminal. Daisy chain the right sides of each button (red) and the left sides (black). Wire the ends of the daisy chains to a 12v power supply. Plug it in for light up buttons! Plug in IPAC to the Raspberry Pi (via USB). PLAY AWESOME GAMES FOR HOURS!!! Second channel: bit.ly/iltms-2

But the awkwardness of this space doesn't mean that it needs to be covered up and forgotten. I realized that it was perfect for storing rolled towels vertically, and to store toilet paper and other bathroom trinkets. When you're trying to build something for a specific space, it is always best to measure the actual opening. Don't be tempted to ballpark or guesstimate the measurements, you want this insert to fit nicely. My particular opening had some really steep angles, so using a digital protractor helps compensate for the math classes I've forgotten over the years. One thing to remember is to keep track of where you are measuring from. In my case, I wanted the insert to sit behind the tile in the floor, but I measured everything from the top of the tile. I realized this mistake before anything was cut, but a simple error like that could have ruined the whole project early on. Armed with the dimensions, I cut the two side panels to length on my table saw. I angled the blade to match the opening of the space that I measured earlier with the digital protractor. Once the two side walls were cut to length, I test fit them in the space. Now, this design called for two fixed shelves; one at the bottom, and one near the top. These shelves would sit in two dados cut into the sides. I used my dado blade set to notch these spaces into the wooden walls. I then measured the span of the opening and cut the two fixed shelves, a toe plate, and one floating shelf to length. With all of the major components cut, I again checked for fit; the insert fit like a glove. When adding adjustable shelves to casework, you can use a simple jig that evenly spaces out some holes for shelf pegs. If you want to move the shelf, just put the pegs in different holes and the shelf rests on top of them. Some of these holes will hold a shelf and some of them will be used to hold a small fence. This fence will keep rolled-up towels from falling on the shelf. We chose to adapt some shelf pins to secure this fence because we may change this setup in the future and I didn't want any additional screw holes in the walls. I simply drilled some some small holes in the flat face of the shelf pin. It would then be turned 90 degrees and the fence would be attached to them with some short screws. In most home construction projects, seems and gaps and ugly materials are covered up by trim, paint, and caulking. When you are making a built in feature, you will inevitably need to cover up some seems and gaps with trim. This can often be the trickiest part of a home project because you are trying to match up the face of a board at some funky angles. This bathroom storage shelf was no exception. You may find that covering up really sharp corners with trim is super tricky. In our case, I had to make a special (and kinda sketchy) jig to cut some trim parallel with the miter saw blade. I wasn't super comfortable making this cut, so I'm not going to show you how I did it, but know that it ultimately worked (after 2 attempts). I used brad nails to attach the trim to the face and filled in all of the nail holes with wood filler. After sanding the whole unit, I applied some final coats of white paint to finish it off. I am very happy with how this built in storage unit turned out. And I'm super happy to cover up that ugly hole in the wall. Overall, this insert was pretty easy to build and I'm glad that we could achieve the functionality that we were hoping for. I think it fits the space really nicely and you would never know that it used to be a door to a dingy attic. I hope this project made you rethink a space in your house that seems unusable.
