For the uninitiated, Kotatsus are low japanese-style tables with a big blanket over it and a heater attached to the bottom of the table. Kotatsu heaters (the only kind of heater safe to use for this to my knowledge) aren't that expensive as far as heaters go, but heaters in general are a bit pricey to begin with. Luckily, I live in a pretty warm climate and my house has central heating, and on top of that the table I'll be heating is pretty small (smaller than the average kotatsu) so I don't need my kotatsu to get nearly as warm as a proper kotatsu heater will get to be. So, I'm trying to come up with some kind of heater-alternative that might be a bit less warm and cheaper. One idea is to have a heating pad under the table rather than a heater. Since it's meant to be applied directly to the body, I'm sure it wouldn't set fire to a table. My only concern is that it might not actually do anything. Do you guys think that a heating pad placed under a small table closed off by an insulating blanket would eventually warm up the inside of the table-blanket enclosure? My other idea would be to use a heated blanket for the blanket part, but the blanket will rest between two table surfaces (or at least a tabletop frame and a solid tabletop) and I'm worried about putting pressure on a heated blanket. This sounds like a bad idea, and like it might cause an electrical fire or something. I could easily build the table so that the topmost table surface and the bottom table surface have a small gap in between the two, with the topmost table resting on maybe 4 pegs on each corner of the table or something like that to keep it in place, but since the blanket is sandwiched between the two tabletops, I'd still have to cut holes out of the blanket where the pegs are, and I don't know if it's safe to cut holes in a heated blanket. Thoughts on either of these methods, or any other ideas for electric heater alternatives?

So I am going to trying to make my white converse more personalized so I decided to give them a blood stained design (festive for the season) Would it be better to make my own fake blood or go buy a bottle of that cheap Chinese stuff from a Halloween store ? Also does anyone have any tips to make it look better ?

Hey guys. Suppose I have a big pile of C, or D batteries with a full charge. How many would it take and how would you wire them in such a way as to be able to start a car?

I want to color this concrete wall green. Obviously I can't plaster it because it won't stick. Any other alternatives? I'm going to use it as a green screen studio so the wall must be smooth and slick. What should I do?

Electrical code question. If I'm installing an additional light fixture(s) off of an already-installed central fixture (in an attic with blown insulation), can I use normal romex to route the power, or does it have to be romex wrapped in conduit to pass electrical code? >pic related, it's what I don't want to have to install if I don't have to.

Living off the land?

Requesting reading material, training courses, ideas, etc. I want to move to a remote rural area and just basically live off my surroundings until the day I die. Problem is I have no experience living this type of lifestyle at all, but I want to learn. Could anyone here point in my in some good directions? Much thanks in advance!

Biodiesel General?

Just saw a mention on the science channel about making biodiesel out of algae. I'd looked into growing algae for food reasons before, but never for fuels, so I was intrigued. The idea of being able to make your own relatively energy-dense liquid fuels is pretty awesome, especially since it'll work with a normal turbo-diesel engine with few to no modifications. Do any /diy/nosaurs have an algae-growing setup? Relevant literature for growing algae and making biofuels?

This isn't quite DIY but I want to know what's the obsession with drinking beverage from a mason jar? Not just in terms of functionality but the whole trend.

inexpensive soundproofing

14 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: ]
Pic related is my room layout. It's basically a big room with a concrete wall in the middle. I get quite a bit of privacy, but I want even more privacy, and I don't want to have to bitch at my roommate for playing music if I'm trying to sleep. So I'm thinking of putting up a soundproof curtain between our sides near the door. Is this going to make any difference? Will it just be a waste of money? Any other soundproofing ideas or ways I could make soundproof curtains myself?

Hi /diy/ So I'm building a long john cargo bike. I'm basically using the rear part of an old mountainbike frame and welding the rest out of some steel tubes. The problem is, I have never welded before, I suck at it and I also only have this cheap welder. It's a Harbor Freight 90A flux core welder I picked up at the hardware store. Pic related is my first attempts at welding on a piece of scrap metal (it's the same tube I'm using for the bike). Basically my question is this: How hard do those welds suck and is that purely my incompetence or does it have to do with the welder too? Let's say I welded the bike together like this, would it be likely to break under load? I don't need the welds to be pretty, it just has to hold and be able to support myself and a maximum of about 150lbs of cargo.

Can you make moonshine or beer (or something to get wasted off of that isn't rubbing alcohol) without a pressure cooker? I've heard stories of people making moonshine in the military with yeast, apples and some 5 gallon buckets.

Anti-theft smoke cloak

0 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: ]
So looking at the price of those units: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z2qApXHN4y8 I was thinking if a handful of sugar smoke cartridges could do the trick (either DIY or ones you can buy in RC stores). But I have several concerns about safety and reliability: *AFAIK sugar smoke screen has very short shelf life because the oxidizer draws in water very quickly. Would sealing the cartridge with some moisture absorbing bags eliminate this or the mix degrades by itself? *Sugar mixture burns quite hot. I'd pack the cartridge in heatproof case, but how do i design the outlet, so that no flames/sparks cant get out, but smoke isn't absorbed or excessive pressure doesn’t build up? *I'd like to avoid white, so it's clear the smoke is artificial and not a fire - I’m thinking green or blue. What colour cartridge (or dye) is least toxic and is easiest to clean off afterwards (or preferably doesn't stain at all)? I'm thinking of something like pic.
