Circuit boards with lights in epoxy in a table

Circuit boards with lights in epoxy in a table


Circuit board table in 10 steps Step 1 The Idea. putting boards like these in epoxy in a table ..but.. .. what table? at last I found this table online the modern steel legs will go well with the boards Step 2 Preparation. the wood of the old table was discolored and the steel was dirty so with paint stripper I removed old layers of varnish (I used a scrape card for that) and I cleaned the steel the backs of the boards had to be really flat first I tried to remove components with a soldering iron but the fastest way was with pliers Step 3 Making room. mmm.. how would I be putting the boards in? I mean, in what shape? I chose the simple strip shape I cut that shape to depth with the saw .. to about 25 mm I took out a 25 x 4 grid with the router the remaining blocks, I chiseled out big pieces with the grain of the wood the rest sideways and after cleaning it was ready for.. Step 4 Putting the boards in. I didn’t want to see any wood in the small spaces next to the boards so I put in this aluminium tape then it was just a puzzle here and there I had to .. .. force a board down with a screw because the middle name of my workshop .. .. is ‘dust’ .. I figured I had to make a tent before pouring epoxy Step 5 Making a tent. nothing fancy, just two tent-shaped ends connected by wood on the sides strips .. .. covered with garbage bags some boards were still loose for the following step they needed to be fixed so this was the first pour with epoxy last chance to position the boards Step 7 Putting in the LEDs (that are no longer LEDs 🙂 I wanted lights to light up but without electricity .. no cables or batteries .. nah .. so I thought of fiber optic cable and I took a normal LED drilled a hole in the bottom broke off the wires .. and stuck a fiber cable in then I drilled holes in the boards and stuck the (glued) fibers in this block with a hole .. is the focal point for the fiber cables I pulled the fibers through .. .. glued them in .. .. and cut them off funny: you can see the colors of the LEDs just to make sure .. I poured in the LEDs so far, so good .. on to .. Step 8 The Big Pour. witness .. the pouring of .. 7 liters epoxy the epoxy revealed .. the table is bent in the middle so I had to pour extra at the sides Step 9 Sanding don’t ask me why .. .. but I recorded all of the sanding so now I know .. .. it took me a total of 2.5 hours with 60, 100, 180 and 320 grit Step 10 Finish the original plan was .. .. to sand and polish the epoxy instead I decided to pour an extra layer I’ll explain later why I sanded the wood one last time and gave it some coats of Danish Oil>The End Result Epilogue So? Success or Fail? well, opposite of what you might think after watching this video the table was a fail What? Why? Somewhere in the process, and I’m not exactly sure where, the epoxy got not mixed well enough. That resulted in sticky soft spots and very ugly spots wait, let me show you Couldn’t it be repaired? that’s why I tried to put another layer over it all – what you just saw in the ‘finish’-part of the video but that didn’t help at all there were so many soft spots at the sides, that the sticky epoxy kept crawling up and out so not only were there ugly spots IN the epoxy, the table being permanently sticky, made it as good as useless Bummer! Yeah, I was quite upset by this, because 95 percent of the epoxy is fine and it is very nice to look at the many details of the circuit boards and to play with the lights What now? well, I guess I have to take my loss and see it as a learning thing What will you do with the table? I’m not sure yet. I’ll keep it for now and think about it. really getting it right would mean to make an extra groove at the sides, between the wood and the epoxy, with a router or a saw and chisel the failed epoxy out that would be a lot of work, so .. I guess I’ll sleep on it for a while Although the table might not be a complete success, just maybe you learned something of the video, or maybe you found the video entertaining.

Spinal Stenosis Relief Exercises

Spinal Stenosis Relief Exercises


AJ here with Stronglife Physiotherapy. Spinal stenosis can cause pain in the back and down the legs and can be very debilitating But I’m here to tell you there’s hope! In this video I’m going to show you some simple exercises that you can do to help relieve pain from spinal stenosis So how do you know if you have spinal stenosis? If your pain comes on while walking, is relieved by sitting down, and you’re over the age of 55 there’s a very high chance that you have spinal stenosis. Also, if you’ve noticed that your pain is much better at the grocery store while leaning over your shopping cart while you walk this is also a sign that you have spinal stenosis The reason for this is that the nerves exit the spine through a hole between the vertebrae called a foramen. When this foramen becomes more narrow it compresses the nerve and causes irritation and pain. Certain spinal movements cause the foramen to open up or close down Bending forward causes it to open up and standing up straight and bending back causes it to close down. Doing exercises that promote opening up of the foramen can lead to relief from spinal stenosis pain. The first exercise is the chair stretch While sitting in a chair with your legs a little wider than shoulder width bend forward and hold for 30 seconds You can also stretch to the sides to get a little more out of the stretch holding 30 seconds in each position and repeat 3 times Don’t worry if your hands don’t reach the floor it’s just the motion of bending forward that counts The next stretch is a hip flexor stretch Tight hip flexors are very common and tip the pelvis forward putting the spine in a more painful position when standing A good way to stretch them is to put one foot up on a chair and bring the hips forward Make sure to hold on to something if you have a hard time with balance You should feel a good stretch in the front of your hips Hold for 30 seconds and repeat 3 times on each side Next, while lying down pull your knee to your chest and hold for 30 seconds You should feel the stretch in the low back Repeat 3 times on each side You can also pull both your knees to your chest for a little better stretch This is a great one to do before you get out of bed in the morning to start the day with less pain For the last exercise lay down on your back with your knees bent Rock your knees and hips side to side as far as you can without pain and hold briefly Repeat 20 times This will helps stretch the spine and promote pain free movement If your pain is truly from spinal stenosis these exercises will help reduce your pain and some of them will feel really good You shouldn’t have any pain while doing them so if that’s the case just ease up a little bit and that will usually help Do them 2-3 times a day consistently for 3 weeks to get your pain under control Thanks for watching, make sure to subscribe have a great day, and stay strong!

Outdoor Storage Bench // Woodworking How To

Outdoor Storage Bench // Woodworking How To


Hey i”m Bob at I Like to Make Stuff today were gonna make a quick and easy outdoor storage bench *intro music* several years ago i made an outdoor storage bench, actually in the same spot and it lasted for a long time but it was time to replace it so i thought i would show you how i did it. It’s really easy, you don’t need many tools, and it uses dimensional lumber from the hardware store Alright! Let’s check it out I’m using pressure treated lumber for this, so that it will last quite a while outside It’s a lot easier, in this case, to bring out a miter saw (or if you have a circular saw that would work as well) to bring it to where you’re working outside, because this piece is going to be big I started by cutting down all the 2x4s to their final length to make a couple of frames There’s going to be one frame that goes on the top of this, and one goes on the bottom I’m just putting these together with butt joints (yes, they’re called butt joints) and I’m gonna use decking screws The decking screws have a coating on the outside so that they last and won’t get all rusty This bench is going to be 10 feet long to fit in between these two bushes And so added one support across the center I used the same size and the same construction for the previous one I made and it worked just fine I cut down some more 2x4s to use as the uprights to connect the two frames from the bottom to the top I wanted these to have a little foot underneath the whole thing, so I cut some 1 inch scraps to use as an offset to hold the bottom frame off the ground Then I put the legs on the ground, right up in the corner and drove in screws from all three sides to tie each one of these together really strong With all of the uprights connected, I stood it up on its end and then laid the top frame down I flipped this whole piece over so that I was working on it upside down and this let me connect the top of the uprights to the bottom of the top frame Super confusing, I know, but once you flip it over, it makes more sense The long 2x4s were purchased at 10 feet, so I didn’t have to cut those But the 1x4s I used to face the whole thing were 12 foot, so I did have to cut off some extra from them, and use those extra pieces to cover the ends I screwed one piece in, used a couple of screws as a spacer, and added the next one, and the next one, and followed that all the way up the sides I did the same procedure for the front, and the back, and the other end No matter how good you are at picking out pieces of lumber, none of them are going to be perfectly straight I find it’s best to start at one end, put one screw in, then your spacer right in the middle, screw the middle piece in, and then work to the other end That allows you to bend it as you need to to get all the way across, and get it as straight as possible Then go back and add a second screw to each one of these connections After this was completely wrapped in 1/4s, I laid out some decking boards across the top Then I took them off and cut them in half These were also purchased at 10 feet, so I didn’t have to cut them to length, just right down the middle I laid them back in place, matching them up with their off cut, and used 2x4s to span all four pieces You have to make sure to drive in screws from the bottom and from the top side because once these start to warp they will separate unless there are screws coming in from both directions I cleaned up the end of each one of these pieces with a circular saw so that it was nice and straight To close the bottom of this in, and keep critters out, I used some wire mesh that I got at the home center I actually bought it in 5 foot sections, so it fit perfectly in I forced it down into shape, and used a staple gun just to attach it every couple of inches This is the same thing I did last time, and I never had an animal inside this thing Finally, it was time to add some hinges and I used some large galvanized hinges I screwed them right on the inside, and then into the back of the box This thing is heavy, but it’s not so heavy that I couldn’t move it into place by myself Obviously, if you were on uneven ground that might be harder I added some eyes, both to the inside of the door, and to the inside of the box before using some chain to connect them This will stop the door from slamming all the way open But you still have to be careful when closing it To make it easier to open though, I used a square to mark a little area and cut it out with a jigsaw This is just a hand hold right in the middle of each one of these sides I put a little bit of an angle on it, but you could always use a router to round it over if you wanted to make it even fancier Then I could finally hide away all the noodles and pool cleaning supplies There it is! Super quick and easy! I did this in an entire day, and I was filming – so if you weren’t filming, this would only take you a couple of hours Obviously you can always change the scale of this to fit your space I just made it so that it would fit between these two bushes in this one little area And if you needed to put heavier things on the inside, you could put some slats of wood across there, just to give it a solid bottom In my case, though, I’m going to be storing mostly pool noodles and supplies, so it doesn’t really need to be strong down there Because this wood is treated, it is a little wet, so I have to wait for it to dry out before I can sand out the markings on the top of it Those will come out pretty easily, and then once it fully dries out you can stain it, you can paint it, you can do anything you want I hope you liked this one! Let me know what you think about it down in the comments I’ve got lots of other types of videos that you might want to check out and don’t forget to subscribe That’s it for this one guys! Thanks for watching! I’m gonna go get in the pool Several years ago, meow

How to Bandage an Elbow

How to Bandage an Elbow


How to Bandage an Elbow. Bandaging an injured elbow is simply logical:
if you physically compress the area, it won’t be able to swell as it might if left to its
own devices. It’s also a pretty simple process. You will need A 2- to 3-inch wide bandage
Binding clips or adhesive tape Soap and water (optional) Disposable gloves (optional) and
dressing (optional). Step 1. Place the tail end of the bandage on the inside
of the arm, just below the elbow, and wrap it around the arm twice to secure the bandage. You want it tight enough to apply pressure
but to not cut off circulation. Have the victim bend the elbow slightly if
they can do so without causing further pain or injury. This positioning will make the bandaging easier. Step 2. Wrap upward, winding the bandage diagonally
from the elbow toward the bicep. Step 3. When you reach the elbow, wrap a figure-eight
pattern around the elbow so the X, or middle, of the figure eight is on the inside of your
elbow, then continue upward. Step 4. When you reach the bicep, finish the bandage
by completing two turns directly over one another, just like at the beginning, without
moving the position of the bandage. Step 5. Use the binding clips found in the bandage
packaging—or apply a strip of adhesive tape—to keep the bandage in place. Avoid anything that might increase swelling
in the first 48 hours after an injury, like a hot shower or drinking alcohol. Step 6. Check for circulation by squeezing the tip
one of the fingers on the injured arm and see how long it takes for color to come back
to the fingertip. If it takes longer than 3 seconds, unravel
the bandage and redo it a little looser this time. Did you know The funny bone is not a bone
at all, but a nerve that runs along the ulna, one of the two major bones in the forearm.
