      EvanAndKatelyn a tip for future projects with edge tape. Don't use a knife as it will try to follow the grain of the veneer. Instead use the blabe of a hand plane, using the face of the board as a guide run the blade angled towards the edge to give yourself a clean straight cut.

    Hi Bob,
    I am organizing a basketball tournament this year and I need to make manual scoreboard. New ones are pretty expensive here in Croatia, about 60 USD and I need two of them. Because my friend and I are teenagers, we can't afford that along with other tournament expenses so I would really appreciate if you could make a scoreboard project. I have few ideas, but not real experience in DIY so it would be a great help Thanks for great videos, I enjoyed watching every single one. Greetings from Split 👋🏻

    I Like To Make Stuff ... Hi Bob, I don't have any experience with laser cutters, but I was just wondering something.... when you were trying to cut through 2 layers of leather and it wasn't cutting all the way through and it wasn't burning either, could you have just hit "print" (what button is it on a laser cutter?) a second time and cut through the remaining peice without burning the leather to a crisp?

  • Mat Howe

    i just have a dumb question that i noticed in the first 2 minutes of the video. Bob why don't you have a miter saw that slides? i feel this would be very beneficial for all the awesome projects you do. i bet you've heard this question a lot. but i'm still going to ask haha. keep up the GREAT content tho its pretty cool. also for the future... could we see more 3d printer based episodes? :D

    • I Like To Make Stuff
      I Like To Make Stuff  8 days ago

      No particular reason, I just found a good deal on this one so I picked it up. The slide would definitely be a nice feature but also makes the saw a bit deeper too.

    The net needs to be a net ... otherwise you drastically alter gameplay for the absolute worst.

      I Like To Make Stuff oh I don't doubt that!! I'm just saying like there are a couple situations during gameplay where a net makes it more competitive/interesting and I feel like that divider wouldn't physically deliver the same results. Heck yeah it's still fun.

    Great video and awesome to see that this is "trending"! One tip I would suggest would be when using the biscuit joiner. Since the biscuits are going to swell and alter a little, placing them closer to the bottom of the wood (instead of the top) would make it so the bumps that could come from the cuts, would show on the underside and never be seen. Hoping I'm making sense here...
