      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.

    You should make it so that if both buttons are pressed for 3-5 seconds, the score resets to start a new game.

    Great project. I look forward to watching how they made the net as well. And.... I didn't check all the other comments... But in some of the shots you and Evan look like you could be brothers. LOL

  • Ekin Eryılmaz
    Ekin Eryılmaz 2 months ago

    Hey Bob, great project again. I have a suggestion to further implement this. Having a buzzer connected to the arduino would be a cool option. You could program those buttons to play like an 8-bit sound when pressed. Such as mario sounds. It's a small touch but it is definitely entertaining.

    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  3 months 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.
