Hey, I have recently bought the pair of boots in this picture but they are a bit loose around my leg, anyone have any idea how I would go about DIYing them into laced boots? Any help is appreciated, thanks in advance.

Hi /diy/. I'm wanting to build some cubes similar to pic related for live music performance. They will be stacked and arranged in various ways to create interesting lighting effects and heighten the energy of performances at venues. I plan to make these out of some sort of fiberboard with some type of opaque plastic or maybe simply stretch some white cloth across the light emitting side. Either way, I think I can figure out the construction, though suggestions here are appreciated as well. Anyway, I'm trying to figure out what would be best for the light source within each box; they aren't going to be simply lit or occasionally change colors. Instead, they should be capable of bright strobe effects and rapid changes to accompany live performances track by track. This will require them to be programmable rather than merely sound reactive, and I'm wondering if you have any suggestions. Philips makes these HUE LED lights that I have used before and work surprisingly well for bright strobes and can be any color imaginable, all programmable wirelessly from a tablet/phone while also being capable of sound reactive functions (different apps unlock different possibilities). However, at $60 a bulb I was wondering if you guys had suggestions for other light sources that might work for this application. I plan to have 8-12 of these cubes to start. Thanks.

Hey /diy so I'm making a small tabletop replica of a sign of a resort for an Xmas gift. It has one light that shines on the face of it. Question: What do I need to buy so it can be plugged into a regular outlet? Bulb size, resistiors, etc? Just wondering what it takes. The sign is going to be about 10" tall so the bulb will be very tiny. I'm assuming its a small list but tbh I am clueless when it comes to electricity. Pic related

ITT: what does /int/ want for Christmas? Material objects are nice but what about those abstract feels you can only talk about here? Tell us what you want most for yourself and the rest of mankind. Juden, Mudslimes and edgy Yuro underage b& are definitely NOT invited. No one wants to hear about how cool you think being a fucking atheist is. Looking at you Norway and Sweden..

Hey /diy/, I have a newbie question for the car stereo wizards. I have an aftermarket amp hooked to a factory radio, which does not include a remote-on wire. There's no power antenna output, either. So I have to hook the remote-on to the accessory power line, which means the amp is on if the car is on, regardless of whether the radio itself is actually on. I would rather the amp remain off unless the radio is on. And no, I'm afraid I can't just slap an aftermarket radio in there. I want to keep a factory-original look. Now, between the radio and the amp is a 4-channel line output converter. High level wires go in, RCAs go out to the amp. BUT! There are also bare wire output terminals on there, right next to the RCAs. I was thinking that maybe I could connect the remote-on to one of those channels, but I'm afraid it would diminish that channel's signal range. I don't know. What do you think? Is it better to leave the amp on full-time (it does have a temperature-sensitive fan back there, just in case), or would it be better to try the speaker channel remote-on? Your advice would be much appreciated.

barrel staves

Hey /diy/ What is the method for cutting logs that will be a barrel? I've heard that you are suppose to go against the grain to prevent the liquid from seeping out. Also, when you treat the wood, what do you put on the ends that wont contaminate the liquids while preventing cracks, or does it not matter since the liquid probably does not touch the the ends?

sealing boards together

Hey guys, I can't find anything on how people make the tops to barrels. I know that just it it out circular, but how to they get them to stay together to cut them? Then how do they apply it to the barrel if they do not have any glue or fasteners or anything?

Howdy /diy/ So for the past little while I've been interested in creating some decoration pieces on my desk at home and today I picked up this nifty glass bowl thrifting. I really liked the shape and thought it would be cool to fill it with something partially opaque and then put a light underneath in the hollow part, allowing it to be illuminated from below. So far I’ve only come up with something like Himalayan salt crystal chunks to fill the bowl, but I was hoping /diy/ may have some other suggestions or ideas. Additionally, what do you think would be the best light for this? I was imaging some small LED with an off/on switch, but perhaps there’s something better.

I recently died in a fire and came back to life. I was fine after a shower, but some of my shit still smells of smoke. Can anyone recommend ways to remove the smell of smoke from items such as a watch, a cell phone and leather wallet? I found some results on google for removing tobacco smell, but I'm not sure if the same applies if you were on a burning building. Pic unrelated, I apologize for that.

What've you done today?

What have you done yourself today /diy/? I spent an hour putting a bevel on my stock removal machete, got dark and had to quit sadly. But I shall continue tomorrow.

composites

4 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: 1952-50.jpg]
I want to make a structure out of a composite material and I pick fiber glass because it's cheap. I'm used to working with MPa (newtons per mm^2) but I can't work out how the specifications translate. e.g. http://www.ecfibreglasssupplies.co.uk/p-2702-s-glass-200gsm-6oz-plain-weave-30-aerialite.aspx How much tensile strength would every layer of this stuff + polymer resin give? And about the moulding - would it be fine to cut a piece of wood then wrap the fiber glass around it, sanding it down to a nice finish? Is the wood inside going to be protected from snapping as long as the fiber glass holds?

G'day. I've stumbled upon this thing when cleaning out my grandfathers attic. Any ideas as of what it is? Looks like it can recieve power and there's a feather/propeller in the middle which can move between the two edges... any ideas what it is? Figured you would be the guys to ask

Sup /diy/namos, Can anyone explain polycarbonate to me? From what I'm finding, there are a whole bunch of slightly different polymers that are classified and sold as "polycarbonate". Are they all compatible with each other? I want to solvent-weld polycarbonate rods (posts) to a sheet of polycarbonate coroplast. These posts will need to withstand some shear and pulling strain, but it should be minor and distributed pretty well. My worry is that if the materials aren't identical, then the incompatibility may weaken the bond. Is there any easy way to figure this out? Pic unrelated (and I have no idea what the backstory is on it, either).

snap on tools

sup /diy/ I got an old set of snapon side cutters. They are kinda gunked up and dirty. The big selling point to snapon is their crazy warranty... so my question is: Should i try to restore my side cutters, or just get them replaced with new ones? I have a friend who works in a garage that gets visits by the snapon truck every few days, so getting it exchanged shouldnt be too hard. Just curious if theres more value to an antique snapon tool, or a new one. Model is a Vacuumgrip 386 sidecutter(Pic related. Though mine arnt nearly as clean, and the 'vacuumgrip' is worn down a bit)

Free CAD Software or Mathmatics to figure out dimensions

7 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: Full Desk.png]
Hey there DIY, is there any free CAD software that I can use to unfold a 3D model made of sheet material so I can figure out how much material I need to compensate for the stretching and compression of the material when it's bent? I have a desk that I'm designing out of Aluminum sheet metal 3mm thick. Another large question is, is the 3 mm thick aluminum too thick to be practical in this design?
