Hi /diy/ I want to make a shelf like the sketch in the picture (sorry for low quality) The shelf is for our bathroom to give us some space to store stuff on. Therefore it will likely be exposed to steam and probably water as well. Is there anything special I need to do to the wood to stop it getting rot or mould? I plan on using pine as it's cheap and easy to work with

Blacksmithing ideas

0 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: blacksmith.jpg]
I'm taking a blacksmithing course and am currently in the middle of planning a candelabra and a 2' chess table. Those are rather elaborate and so are fairly tedious, along with all the other projects we're instructed to do. The chesstable will also probably involve a lot of casting (Haven't figured out what I'll actually make the pieces out of.) To break up the tedium I do other small projects for myself while following the curriculum, the problem is that I can only make so many bracelets, knives, and bottle openers. So /diy/ got any good ideas for me? I'll show you pictures of them later and even teach you how to make a pair of tongs in about 5 minutes flat, even with no experience.

/diy/, does anyone here have experience with soapmaking? I'm thinking about a making a gift to a couple of people and homemade soap seems like a decent idea, but I've no experience other than back in high school chemistry lab years ago. Is it a viable idea, is it hard and how'd I approach this?

Hey /diy/, I'd like to go in the crawl space in my house, unfortunately, I'm afraid of spiders (yes I know, stupid). The reason I need to go in the crawl space is because I'm planning on installing a sprinkler system and I believe the water main is in the crawl space, so I'll need to splice it from there in order to get a proper system installed. I'd also like to go under and put in a cat5e network to some rooms. Do you guys have any ideas on what might comfort a coward like me in going down under? (I've heard there's coveralls that help, a stick to clear cobwebs)

Hullo /diy/, I want to make a winterproof sleeping bag for a friend who is homeless, but I don't know how to start. I have a design in mind, it would be an extra roomy sleeping bag with only a small hole for ventilation/light, so your head is warm as well and it would be like a giant cocoon. I would sew a foam pad into the underside for extra insulation from the ground. Unfortunately I don't know what types of material I would need for this project, how to acquire them and how to put it all together. Advice?

Co2 laser Iannini design, 28 electronic gadgets for the evil genius ch8

1 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: 28EG-evilgenius.jpg]
Hey diy. Anyone else is taking on this project? I been on again-off again about my pace. Not an electrical engineer, but considering studying to be an electronics tech. Here's the datasheet for the IR2153 inverter (the ""53S namely as this IC doesn't have an internal 15.6V zener diode for clamping) http://www.irf.com/product-info/datasheets/data/ir2153.pdf What I want to know is: 1) How critical is the clamping circuit--the clamper diode for the IR2153(S)? By that I mean can I get away with using a 1n4007 instead of a 1n4937? Would I have to alter the capacitor value if I used a 1N4007 to make up for the difference in Trr ratings? The difference is one's Trr is like 300 microseconds (I think), the other is ~100 nanoseconds (respectively). How much does this matter? Relevant info doesn't answer my question but helped me understand: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clamper_%28electronics%29 I have a 1n4935 but it's only rated for 200V instead of the recommended 600V of 1N4937. If using it, would I have to worry about voltage spikes or would the capacitor in the clamping circuit block this? I know it'd obviously preclude the use of 220Vac mains voltage. 2) Current control choke. It's an inductor with a EC52 core and 40 turns of wire. (BTW I found them at surplus sales of nebraska for $5 instead of the ~$30 information unlimited charges for it so hope that helps anyone else looking to build this). I don't have an oscilloscope* to fine tune test this out as per assy. instructions, but the instructions on the inductor assembly itself are pretty specific. It's critical only in that it provides the majority of current limiting. Is there any chance I could just use the panel meter on the output to detect optimization without catastrophic failure (i.e. blowing the MOSFETS, melting the power transformer, etc.)? *Trying to get a Tektronix465 and accessories off ebay but they're still either somewhat expensive or they go very fast if they're good deals.

So my best friend's birthday is coming up soon. Hes into fantasy shit and I'm broke and like to build things. This year I'm planning on making him the shield of the knight solaire from Dark souls because he loves that game, he loves shields, and he loves that emblem. It looks like making a basic round shield is relatively easy. However judging from the pictures it seems to be slightly convex. I know how to bend a shield to curve one way or the other, but how would you make one thats convex like that out of wood? The other thing that concerns me is the brass trim. How can i wrap it around the edges of the shield so on the outer face its a smooth surface and not pinched together every few inches?

Heron's Fountain

7 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: bottles-md.jpg]
So I've recently moved into a house that has a frog pond in the back yard, and I want to get it up and running properly- all of the frog conservation-type websites I've found say I should get a pump, but I'm a poorfag who can't afford an electric pump (and I'm not really interested in the electricity bill I'd get by running it 24/7). So, I've looked into making a Heron's Fountain (pic related)- which is basically a pumpless fountain that perpetually moves water around using gravity. Pretty cool! Anyway, I know how to make a basic Heron's Fountain, but as I'd be putting this in a pond to oxygenate the water rather than just as a pretty water feature, I'm going to have to think outside the box a little bit. The pond itself would probably be part (a) in the diagram here, but other than that, I'm a little stumped. Any ideas? And here's some other links for anyone interested in making one of your own: http://makezine.com/2008/06/08/build-herons-fountain-1/ http://van.physics.illinois.edu/qa/listing.php?id=2262 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sv9JrnnZkLA

Hi /diy/, this is my first post here. I'm gonna go on a college student cruise which has a circus theme (everyone dresses up) and am planning to show off my /fit/ gains with a circus weightlifter outfit. Problem is, no stores here sell striped or otherwise flashy wifebeaters I could use, I don't want to order anything online, and as such I'm planning to make one myself. No need to wear pants, I'm finnish so we use our student overalls as pants. But I have no idea how to start, how I should approach the issue (should I use dye or something else) and I came here to look for ideas, if you'd be so kind. Pic somewhat related.

So /diy/ I've been curious for a while now about home brewing beer. How would I go about doing this? Is there any help some veterans could give me? A nice ratio of cheap/good is what I'm going for.

so, /diy/ I have like 30 hotwheels cars that I bought for my son. And I´d like to make a /diy/ track, or city, or something awesome. I have searched the interwebs but nothing really interesting has appeared. I´´ve seen some tracks powered by some kind of rotating wheels that push the cars when they go through, But I can´t find those on my local stores. Long story short, Ideas for making my own "power ups" for the cars? AND the tracks, AND some moving plataforms and awesome things... My son is one year old btw. and he REALLY likes this little cars. thanks dudes.

How hard would it be to create a device that could send a 12V signal down a wire when a vocal command is spoken? I was creating a push button start diagram for my car when I realized that anything that would send a 12V signal to the relay could start the car.

So I really want to get into building a major aquaponics setup in the future, and one thing I'd really like to grow is corn, but when I stop and think about it, corn has a lot of excess that would build up into a ton of excess really quick: the stalks, the husks, the cobs - it would be a lot to toss into compost. Is there any other practical use that people know of for these? Could be anything, really. I was considering using the cobs in the bottom of outdoor planter boxes for biodegradable drainage - the soil could just be tilled and reused in another box the next season. How possible would it be to make charcoal with dried stalks and cobs? I wanted to get into metal working, and I've heard about people making their own charcoal - seems like that could be a possible source. So yeah, anything else?

I dont have access to a drill, but I need to drill a 3/8 inch hole in a stainless steel stock pot lid (not too thick). What are some alternatives to actually buying a drill(i've already asked people if they had one). Can I use a masonry bit and screw it by hand? Can I hammer a drill bit? suggestions are appreciated and my result in a payout of one internet >pic related >its the reward

Hey /diy/, I'm a college sailor, and I'm trying to find a solution for our dock problem. Our launching area consists of a concrete slab that has about a 20 meter waterline with a floating dock attached to it. As of now, our team carries each boat out individually to the floating dock to launch, but it takes a significant amount of time. My idea is to line the edge of the concrete area with carpet so the boats can be slid directly into the water without damaging their hulls. What would be the best way to attach the carpet to the concrete? Is there some sort of adhesive that would work? A few things to keep in mind is that this is in New Orleans, so there is a lot of foul weather, and it is common for our launch area to flood.

Yo /diy/, I downloaded SpeedFan and found out my motherboard was just a tad toasty despite all my fans running at optimal capacity. I picked up a syringe of thermal grease to see if I can cool it down a bit. Any dos or don'ts I should keep in mind when applying this stuff?

My amp keeps tripping protection mode. I have eliminated all possible resistive connections, + feed, Ground and rem. Only thing is these damn terminals on the backs of the enclosures, they were the shitty screw on ones like pictured, I came across 4 of the spring loaded barrel style ones, installed them in the plastic plates, but one broke, so now wired in serial I have one potentially faulty collection. This shit is irritating me to no end, luckily I have a switch on the REM line on my console, but I'm having to reset the damn thing at most once every few seconds - sometimes ittle work for days at a time. Would radio shack have the quality spring loaded barrels? I'm half tempted to just nigger rig blade terminals into the box.
