  1. This guy is the man.
    I would definitely enjoy seeing him on Make more often.
    His youtube channel is full of good info and interesting projects.

  2. Tim Saylor says:

    I completely disagree with Andy. It was 56 seconds in before I found out what the project is, a lot more time before we got to the first step, then the instructions were almost entirely done in fast motion in about 5 seconds. If you like groanworthy jokes this is the video for you, but that’s not what brings me to Make.

  3. Tim Lewallen says:

    I agree and disagree with you both. I like Deek, his vibe and his approachable projects but it did take a while to get to the meat of the project here and it didn’t stay there long.

    I would like more and better in the future.

  4. Bravo, Bros! keep going like this, more good info
    again.

    I have no idea what makes you think this pathetic, jokey crap is funny. It isn’t. You wasted my time for information you could have laid out in ten seconds.
