Hello my name is Shahab Mahboubian, Iam an orthopedic surgeon and I specializelimb lengthening and deformity correctionsurgery. Many of my patients have asked me about HGH or growth hormone as the answerto growing taller. There are two main problems with growth hormone. Number one, for it towork properly and to help you grow, it would need to be taken prior to puberty. The secondproblem, it can be extremely harmful to your body if not taken properly under the guidanceof a endocrinologist. As limb lengthening I tell my patients that have hitpuberty and are serious about growing taller that there is an alternative and that is toundertake a limb lengthening or hight lengthening
procedure.This is not a procedure that isfor everybody. There are potential compliions involved with the surgery and you would needto cometo see if you qualify for the surgery. Many of my patients who have had the lengtheningprocedure have had great results and have been able to return to their presurgicalactivities, as well as sports. If this is something that really interests you, pleasefeel free to visit my website for more information.
How to Make a Box Cushion with a Zipper
Hi, I'm Clara from Online Fabric Store. Today I'm going to give this midcentury modern chair a new look by replacing the cushions. Box cushions are commonly found on couches or armchairs, and are usedmany other appliions like window seats, benches, outdoor seating, or even beds. So let's get started. The materials you'll need are: decor fabric, I'm using PK Lifestyles Cross Section Charcoal, padding, thread, a zipper foot, an upholstery zipper, a ruler, scissors,
a serrated or electric knife, a fabric marker, a seam ripper, foam spray adhesive, and 3 inch upholstery foam. The first step is cutting the foam to size. Mark the foam to your dimensions. This cushion will be 16 by 20 inches. Turn the foam over and mark the other side too. Use an electric or serrated knife to cut about halfway through the foam. Then flip it over and finish cutting through. Cutting from both sides will help keep the cut square, especially on thicker foam.
Lay the foam on the dacron padding and cut it out. Repeat for the other side. Padding softens the edges and creates a fuller look. Trim off any excess padding. Use a spray adhesive designed for foam to attach the padding. Spray it onto the foam and lay the padding on top. Repeat for the other side. Measure and cut two pieces for the top and bottom.
Take the dimension of your foam and add 1 inch to both sides to account for a 12 inch seam allowance. I'm cutting two pieces that are 21 by 17 inches. If you're working with a patterned fabric, you'll want to pay attention to how the pattern is aligned on your panels. Then measure and cut the boxing, which is the piece that will wrap around the sides of the cushion. Take the measurements of the perimeter and subtract the length of the zipper. The width of this fabric, 54 inches, is just enough for the boxing on this cushion, but you can sew two pieces together if needed.
The height of the boxing is the height of the foam plus 1 inch. Finally, cut a panel for the zipper, which is going on the back of the cushion. This piece should be 2 inches longer than the length of the zipper. The height of the panel is the height of the foam plus 1 inch for the seam allowance plus the width of the zipper, which is a total of 5 and 18 inch for this cushion. Next, I'm going to sew the zipper panel. Fold the zipper panelhalf lengthwise with the right sides facing. On the folded side, sew down the length using a seam allowance that is half the width of the zipper.
For this zipper, the width divided by 2 is 916 of an inch. Cut down the middle of the fold. Open the seam and lay the zipper on top facing down, so the center of the zipper is right on top of the center of the seam. Change the foot on the sewing machine to the zipper foot. With the zipper foot close to the zipper, sew down the length, making sure the center of the zipper remainsline with the seam. You may have to stop and move the pull tab so it's notthe way.
Leg Daddy University Installing Hanger Bolts Into Sofa Legs
Welcome to Leg Daddy University. Today, weare going to install a 516inch hanger bolt into a leg without damaging the threads. Hereis everything you're going to need to complete this project. The first thing we want to dois take our hanger bolt and one nut and screw it down just enough to where we can get asecond nut right above it until it meets the first nut. Once you're there, you want totake a pair of pliers to grip the bottom nut, a wrench or another set of pliers to gripthe top nut, and twist them to where they're locked against each other. This way, the nutsshouldn't move apart from each other. So, this is what you should look like at thispoint. Once you get here, you simply want
to take the coarse side of the hanger boltand position ita straight, upright positionthe preilled hole, and begin to twistjust a little bit, just until you get itthere good and gripped. Once you're thereand can't twist anymore with your hand, you want to take pliers, a wrench which everyou prefer and just grab onto that top bolt, and pretty much just start twisting clockwise,keeping the bolt straight throughout the motion. You want to continue this process until thiscoarse thread is completely recessed into the leg itself. If you feel a little tensionwhen you're doing that, that's normal, because it should be a tight, snug grip as you'redoing this, because you want the bolt to be
secure. Once your coarse thread disappears,this is what you'll have as an end result at this point. Now, we're going to removethe nut, keeping the threads intact without damaging them. So, pretty much, you want todo the same thing you did to put them onreverse. Grip your plier on the bottom bolt,and again, plier, wrench, whatever you prefer on the top bolt, and counterclockwise turn.Oops. Real simple, the first nut just twists right off, and once you break that connection,the second bolt backs right off just as easy. And now we have one completely installed 516inchhanger bolt with nondamaged threads. This is how to properly install a hanger bolt intoyour leg yourself without causing damage to
