If you actually want to know how it's made (like I did), then watch this: https://www.dailymotion.com/video/xd6mq7
Video quality is poor, but it actually explains a bit of the process.
edit: this one, much prettier, shows how Cassia cinnamon is made: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x0mSpoth6xU (it's pretty similar)
Steak, no, since all the bacteria is on the outside. Searing it and leaving the inside rare/raw makes it safe. (This is why rare ground beef is a bad idea--the inside and the outside get all mixed together.)
Chickens contain much more bacteria. I'm not sure why, but this is why it's recommended to cook them more.
Edible gold leaf isn't cost-prohibitive for special occasions or the odd weekend tinkering in the kitchen.
If you guys like this, I'd highly suggest checking out his stream on twitch.
He streams almost every Mo/We/Fri at 8pm EST. It's a fantastic way to pass the time and he's a super cool dude. Always willing to answer any questions you might have, and it's really cool seeing him sculpt these things in real-time.
In the past few weeks he finished up a King Hippo sculpt and is currently working on Fox McCloud.
This guy has a nice bar set up. If you're just learning to make cocktails (or just want to be accurate to a recipe) the most important thing you need is a good jigger with a few measurement marks. Shakers and blenders can be important for some cocktails but the majority of them can be made in a pint glass and stirred with ice...which then requires a strainer.
This is Mei!
She is a character from the game Overwatch, she has ice related abilities that can freeze enemies, create ice walls, and can be a general pain in the butt to her enemies.
That was my first thought. Pretty big wast of plastic. He could also use biodegradable bags.
I built my own vibraphone once out of aluminum bars, galvanized tubing, the works. It was an incredibly interesting process with a surprising amount of math involved. If anyone else is interested, this is the book I worked from:
Making Marimbas and Other Bar Percussion Instruments
Making mallet instruments is incredibly easy to learn, you can make them out of almost anything (sticks, rocks, bottles) and it’s fun to learn how things vibrate and make sound.
It was probably this.
Well, the former was written for an "intermediate programmer" audience, and the latter for real-time graphics enthusiasts/professionals, so yeah, the two really cover two very different ends of the spectrum.

The artist, Ford, is a friend of mine and a really nice guy. He's currently doing a kickstarter to write a series of books about his techniques, since he's basically the only person in the world who knows how to do what he does.
You mean $1.42?
Edit: I get what you’re saying, and having just had dinner this Saturday at a 1-star place in Berlin (Golvet, great food btw), you’re right. But to paraphrase my favorite philosopher, Gusteau, it’s not that anyone can be a great tailor, but a great tailor can come from anywhere.
This same video was submitted 6 days ago:
This reminds me of my uncle. His father and grandfather where lumberjacks in Switzerland up until the 1960s. My uncle decided to create a documentary film about the process of lumber felling using only tools from the time. So he and his cousin recreated the whole process in the same woods their fathers used to work in. The trees involved are far smaller than the mighty redwoods, but there was absolutely no machinery involved. The most interesting part was that the trees are felled during the summer/autumn months, but only in winter they can be brought down into the valley. This is done by creating a temporary "tree ice canal" in which the trees slide down the mountainside. It's rather spectacular and insanely dangerous.
Unfortunately, the documentary is in swiss-german, so anybody outside of Switzerland will understand a complete fuckel. But this preview shows some scenes from the documentary, including a brief glimse at the ice chute at around 0:45.
That's not how most standard drums are made: http://hubpages.com/entertainment/How-To-Make-A-Drum-Shell
>You want the veneer grain to go around the drum. Not straight up and down because it will be weak and break over time or instantly when you bend it.
Rolling ply wood veneers into a circle is the major method.
Some instruments, like congas and bongos use this method though, and some older drums also do this, but rolling veneers in a mold is the standard method.
At every stage I was kind trying to add up what the cost might be... OK - tracking down the original engravings...yeah this is gonna be expensive. Whoa, this guy has a 100 year old printing press in his shop - this might be a couple hundred bucks at least. Hand bound...where it took 11 professional book binders an entire weekend bind 50...well, that's a few hundred more at least. Then the leather, the gold leaf spine label....geez - I might've guessed $1000 or so, but $4600 is pretty wild! Maybe I'll stick to the $23 mass produced version
all of these recent maker videos focus on telling the story of how the person came to have the job rather than the techniques...
The Violin Maker is similar (with the requisite super-narrow depth of field). still a great video though...
i thought i had some videos about making double basses bookmarked, but i cant find them...i'll post them up if i can figure out where i stuck them.
History is littered with convoluted solutions to problems that would become trivial in a few short years due to some technical breakthrough. My favourite example is the Eidophor.
> do you know where I could find free background music like the one used in that video?
I'd check for music in the Creative Commons. Most of the usage restrictions are pretty lax (e.g. you can't claim you made it, if you use it, give credit to the author, etc).
I've heard good things about ccMixter, but I've never used it myself.
It's on amazon
There is also this great review

Not difficult to make either. You can find smaller scale takoyaki grills all over Japan. Apparently in the US/Amazon now too - https://www.amazon.com/IWATANI-TAKOYAKI-Grill-cooking-CB-P-TAF/dp/B0098HKKL0
Don't know if this helps with this video (I tried it and it was hard to distinguish the text from the background video), but Adobe Capture claims to be able to recognize fonts using machine learning:
It took me a several minutes but I found this good resource that says the traditional adhesive was hide glue.
I also found the artist's web page with this interesting q&a section: http://www.kathywise.com/QandA2.html
The Google result you used for this:
> a worker in a skilled trade, especially one that involves making things by hand.
Comes from the online Oxford dictionary. http://www.oxforddictionaries.com/definition/english/artisan
The full definition gives context to the citation:
>1 A worker in a skilled trade, especially one that involves making things by hand: street markets where local artisans display handwoven textiles, painted ceramics, and leather goods
>1.1 [as modifier] (Of food or drink) made in a traditional or non-mechanized way using high-quality ingredients: Britain’s artisan cheeses the growing appreciation of artisan foods
As you can see, the word artisan signifies a very particular type of skill trade. Before I subscribed to this subreddit, I would have thought that this was common knowledge, but apparently not.
I also hear people using the Subreddit sidebar rules to add all sorts of content to this subreddit, and I can't help but think its just a sort of loophole. I mean, technically, someone could link videos of a football player making an exceptional pass, and say something like "well the rules say that performance related skills are allowed "Nothing is being made, but a high level of skill is demonstrated".
It seems to me that the original founders of this subreddit probably had a much more narrow definition of skill or performance in mind when they created this subreddit. It seems to me that over time the subreddit mutated into something that it wasn't initially intended to be.
> Not that I fault these companies for trying to make the world a better place, but sometimes It just seems like a marketing ploy.."I'm not a greedy company, I want to give away shoes...buy vaccines for Africans,...adopt a child...etc etc"
People would rather buy a nice story about some kid who just wants to change the world. And fight the evil corporations! This is the only thing i remember from my communications class a good 5 years ago; people (often?) want to buy a story not a product. And i feel it is true.

> Artisanal videos, by a reasonable, broadly understood definition, meets a certain level of excellence, challenge, and artistry. I think that's a reasonable position, don't you?
Absolutely. This is a reasonable, accurate, subjective position.
> Yes I can! It's my opinion that this is objectively not artisanal. No contradiction there!
This is wrong. Here is the definition of Objective: "(of a person or their judgment) not influenced by personal feelings or opinions in considering and representing facts." (http://www.oxforddictionaries.com/us/definition/american_english/objective)
By definition, you cannot have an opinion about what is objective. Unlike almost all of life, objectivity is opinion-immune. Because people like the idea of objectivity (in those places where it can exist), they take umbrage at false claims of it. Your opinion cannot be fact without a basis to go along with it.
As am I!
And so I proudly present the fruits of way too much labor, https://www.mediafire.com/?w9hjf4tbvxh9d5u
Notes: I did this mostly for my own enjoyment at this point; don't feel bad if you don't give a shit. I also have little explanation as to why the music is more audible at the end. I suspect the video editor changed the level in some way or another, but I couldn't automate anything because I had to use Audacity as FL isn't precise to an individual sample, which is, as it turns out, what you need for this kind of work.
It does drag on a bit, but I gotta admit it made very good background while grinding ClickerHeroes. Not our typical 8 minute vine, but definitely the hardcore workshop porn we all seem to love. And learning too! Much more nuanced than a lot of the subs here. I know I would very much enjoy doing this kind of work for life, how 'bout you?
/u/j_kenji_lopez-alt is the author of The Food Lab for which he won a James Beard Award, and was the main contributor to the seriouseats.com website for a long time. He's real big on experimentally proving things, like whether or not you can tell the difference between eggs in a blind taste test.
tl;dr he's a well respected figure in the culinary community and is into sciencing the shit out of it.

Imported Parmigiano are $900. This Grana seems a bit more expensive, maybe, but still something under $2000 is likely for a whole wheel.
you can diy your own thing with a speaker stand and something like this...
It's still a sweeping generalization, so yeah, usually people who study/ care about that kinda thing still find it distasteful when people say stuff like that. This quora discussion goes over most of it pretty well.
https://www.amazon.com/Polisher-Portable-Hydrogen-Polishing-Machine/dp/B00OPLO3S0 It seems to be one of these, the YouTuber described it as " oxy-hydrogen water welder with a fine point tip" so maybe any oxy-hydrogen water welder and then specifically a fine pointed tip attachment?

For my limited use of AI tools I use the android app Remini through Bluestack emulator for faces.
For upscaling I use free online upscalers. I use different ones depending on what result I need. Some are really good on objects, others are really good for drawings and other unrealistic imagery.
As a starting point for coloring i use Deoldify.
If you are confident in Photoshop, Affinity Photo is a great alternative for most photo editing purposes. It also supports a lot of photoshop plugins. If you also manage to find the old and free google version of the NIK collection photoshop plugins, you have a great image editing solution for like a combined $50.
As a whole the Affinity Suite is great value for money.
Don't worry, they're clean. Upholstery tacks are usually factory sterilized, because handling them with your mouth is pretty standard.

Weaver here. You are only limited by your heddles really, steel heddles can be packed to about 60 EPI, while Texsolv heddles can be packed much more tightly. However by the look of it, it’s really not incredibly fine and maybe in the range of 30-45 EPI, just a guess. Any loom with 4 shafts can do this, it’s just a twill. Here is a new book that can help you:
Edit: after watching it again, I think it’s likely more like 30 threads per inch or less (ends per inch = EPI) you get this by dividing the number of threads by the inches across the piece in the reed. (Also when he says reed he is showing the heddles and not the reed).
You should check out this book. It's a quick read and explores that very question in some wonderful detail and is really great thought provoking book. But a quick TL;DR is yes, it still counts as by hand.
A bit heavy handed maybe, but let me go over all your points. Sorry if I was rude but you said all of this with confidence and it just isn't right.
In Canada at the very least, using a beer glass to shake with just isn't at all standard or typical. I'm assuming this is true of at least the metric world, probably the US as well. Typically bars that choose to use glass shakers use a glass specifically designed for that purpose, and they are very thick. Here's an example, it even says "Solid stainless steel cup and robust thick glass."
>Also, you need more than a slight tap to lock them in place.
You don't need to tap them hard. Maybe you do if you use beer glasses, but with standard shakers you don't.
>Using to little force and having a glass fly out and break on your well... have seen it happen.
You should shake with a hand on each glass anyways, so they shouldn't go flying. Do you shake by only holding one of the glasses? This might explain why you feel the need to couple them with more than a light tap. The only time you wouldn't use two hands is if you're shaking two shakers at once, and in this case you should hold the pair with two fingers on each cup. This way even if they decouple they don't go flying. This is pretty unnecessary anyways, and you should probably just shake them one at a time.
I don’t doubt that you’re a good bartender, but what you said is only true to your bar in particular.
I have no idea about watercolor but for drawing Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain is often recommended for adults trying to learn to draw.
I don’t have crazy expensive hear but I use something very similair for my kitchen and tool knives, I’ve seen this recommended on reddit for folk in the US as a beginner stone that’s not too expensive. You can have a pretty big range of prices depending on how ‘artisanal’ you want to get my one like this has treated me well. A honing steel is good to have as well and just run it over that a few times before some serious chopping and then over the stone when it’s really running a dull edge
He can ask anything he wants. Doesnt mean it isnt a completely absurd price lol.
I mean i have a choice to buy an over engineered hunk of metal that weighs a ton and isnt practical for 200 bucks or I could spend under 15 bucks for a keychain version thats more practical and still looks decent
Probably not. Rust erasers look like this and come in coarse, medium, and fine, but even fine is not going to give a mirror polish. At that point he's probably using the green honing compound.
your original statement comes across as a bit aggressive over the price, hence my response. HOwever, let's break down some costs. I am assuming 16 gauge wire because that seems to be fairly common for a structure like this. THinner would be more jewelry thickness and I don't think that would hold as well as this does once it started going out into the branches. I could be wrong but the difference will be about $2 every 25 ft. so not a huge deal.
So on Amazon I can get 25 yrds of 16 gauge for $5.50. converting to meters that is 7.62 meters for £4.20 (I am using US prices so the price may vary in the UK you would have to look that up). So to get 340 meters I would need 45 spools which would cost £189.
That's just the cost of the wire. So that is £271 left to pay for hours of work and specialised knowledge and experience and tools to be able to create the final product.
It is reasonable to assume the price for the wire will vary based on locations as well as the artist likely having a supplier they can get more of a bulk order instead of paying per small spool, but the price will still be limited by the value of copper itself and certainly won't ever be cheaper than copper is worth by weight.
When doing something specialised, especially if it is high quality and skillful a general rule of thumb for the person creating the item or product is materials x3 (or doing the math based on cost of materials + set hourly rate x hours needed to create the product). This will help cover costs of overhead and materials and still allow the person to make a little money to make it worth creating the product (especially if they are doing it as a primary source of income. Because if you can't make a profit to pay your own bills you aren't going to be able to continue making the items very long).. THis artist is charging less than that rule of thumb. So it's far less expensive than it may seem.
For full assembly (that link was just burner) use something like this plus a ring for the wok and just cook outside.
Wow! Thanks for an awesome reply. Unfortunately I'm not in a position where I can spend much money so I'll have to see if I can find some flea markets near me to buy some stuff at. All this stuff is great info that I need to look at better when I have time where I don't need to be asleep. But while I'm here I want to ask you one thing: What do you think of the Kreg jig? I'm using it to hold on the back of some floating nightstands and also used it heavily on my desk, although on my desk they aren't really load bearing whereas on the nightstands all the weight is going through that backplate first.
Thanks again for the awesome reply :)
The guy has a book, for anybody who's interested in making one of these things themselves. It's actually quite good. Very detailed. Of course, I have yet to try making one myself, so I won't comment on whether it's as easy (ha!) as he makes it look...
Thanks for the tip!
Do you think something like this would be durable and non-sticky?
I'm currently suffering with stainless steel pans where everything sticks and I need to spend a lot of time scrubbing.
I did not. I'm not sure it would have helped, and plus all I have is a fairly rough diamond hone that I use for cheap kitchen knives.
As /u/Vespertilionem says the term is 'molecular gastronomy' (even though a lot of people don't like that) rather than cooking and requires knowledge of food science, chemistry and physics and amazing artistry and craftsmanship.
Here is a great book I've just started reading (just finished the Kindle sample I got) and it is amazingly interesting. I've also had a few friends recommending it, it is really interesting: The Perfect Meal: The Multisensory Science of Food and Dining.
so... for a USB stick this is little overkill... i got a Kingston DataTraveler a couple of years ago and that thing is fucking sturdy and much smaller than this thing.
Any time you're storing anything in a can you're preserving it and it needs to meet proper acidity, regardless of how long you plan on keep it on your shelf. Source is from Food in Jars, a cookbook I have at home.
I'm just saying I think the video is quaint, cute, but doesn't serve as a proper guide for storing tomato sauce.
This is what I have. I've owned two. The first I had for six years and used 3-4 times a week. Eventually, it was no longer non-stick because of the accumulated scratches and scrapes (for which I'll blame my wife, because she is not here to defend herself). That said, its the third different type of non-stick pan I've own, and it is by far the best.
If you notice the amount of "sponge" that he uses in the beginning is quite large, about half of so the mass finished dough. Probably had fermented in that tub for a day or so.
Good book if you are interested...
I bought some of these tape lights, but discovered that they did not cast enough light for me. I ended up buying these: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00LMSB3AK?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o06_s00 which are much brighter.
i recently purchased one from amazon....the learning curve isnt as bad as i thought it would be and i havent cut myself yet and its been a month. Granted, i have a beard so i only use it to shave my cheeks and neck line. This is the one i bought and really like the weight of it.
Literally, an omelet pan.
 it looks like the 2nd one is a smaller 12" wok with a flat bottom. essentially, the curvature of the side of the pan is key to rolling the omelet. And lots of oil. a good seasoned surface. and skills.
If you want something similar to matcha, but pretty inexpensive I'd suggest you check Costco for their Sencha & Matcha mixed tea bags. If i remember correctly they're actually much cheaper at the store than the Amazon price, and as with most kirkland products they're just slightly rebranded Ito-en tea. Definitely becoming one of my favourites.
I remember a great scene involving one of these weapons near the beginning of Garry Jennings' <em>Aztec</em>.
Most people would be better off with this knife in the kitchen.
I've had one for many years. Stick it in dishwasher, no problem. Slow air dry? no problem. Curved edge for rocking? yes. Use the back for tenderizing meat? yes.
yes, especially when you can get real hand made Shozaburo for less.
This style of canoe was the origin of the more durable wood and canvas canoe. In his book Rollin Thurlow details the construction and history of the wood and canvas version and relates it to these old bark canoes.
I know this is only semi-relevant, but I really like wood and canvas canoes, and if anyone is interested in making their own canoe, I highly recommend this book
