I currently have this bed and I'm trying to design my bedroom around it. I'm redoing the floors next month so that's open for debate and the walls can be painted to any color. I just basically want a nice mature bedroom that suits a 20 something professional. I can all ways get rid of this bed and get something new, but I'd prefer not to. Any input would be wonderful.

DIY metal flag holder

DIY metal flag holder 15 posts and 3 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Hey DIY, I need a bunch of flag holders, After looking at amazon, I think I could make one for way less. Most are at least $8 and that is a little out of my price range. I want to make it as cheap as possible. I need it to be able to fit around another pole EX: street light but not nearly as thick. How would you do this? I am thinking about something sort of K shaped but without the lower right leg. How can I do this? Pic related: I would like the base longer and not have the wall mount piece.

How would I hook up a handset to a computer. Is it as simple as just splicing the rj11 wires to a 3.5mm audio cable?

Coin Operated Timer

Coin Operated Timer 17 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
I have a coin operated timer for my heater. It's $2 for 8 hours. I was curious as to whether anyone knew how to bypass this system to trick it into thinking I've inserted $2, or if there was a way I could open the box to get the $2 and reuse it each time.

Would it be feasible to do a very small scale oyster farm in a small, but remote lake?

hey /diy/ i'm going to join a maintain/building commision for my students union. the thing is, in order to join it, I will need to make my own tool we can use. it doesn't have to be very useful, but it must be something that makes diy-ing easier. does anyone have any suggestions? when you're working on something, what do you still miss? I don't expect a very great tool, it's for students after all if you have some more questions, please ask

Sound card

Sound card 6 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
I was wondering if it is possible to use PC sound card to measure voltage (mic input to be more specific), lets say between 0-1V. Does it depend on audio card or is it impossible.

Hi guys. So here's my problem: what kind of material would you recommend for manually machining a replacement laptop case? My Acer 7741G is literally falling apart, while still being fast enough for me. I have access to basic machines like bed mill and lathe and can use them without killing myself. I was thinking alluminium, since it's easy to work with and looks fine, especially anodized, but the whole project could easily get expensive if I messed up and had to start over and I'm almost sure that the wifi antenna would stop working. My friend suggested PMMA, but I don't think I'd like to have a transparent computer, since I'm not exactly a l33t g4muRR. Right now I'm leaning towards an alluminium frame, like just a ring on the outside and POM interior, however I'm afraid that it would scratch easily and not dissipate heat good enough. I'd appreciate any advice, pic somewhat related.

Floor

Floor 7 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Anyone here ever fix creaky floors in their home? My third floor is completely carpeted and the creeks are really starting to bother me. I've found these kits that are basically screws that break off below the carpet and hold the floor to the joist. Has anyone here used this product or one similar? Is there a better or cheaper way to fix the creaks? Pic related

Hey, /diy/. How did those brilliant bastards at Machine Era Co. finish this aluminum? I would just experiment with it, but I have very limited amounts of aluminum and I can't recast without sacrificing precious quantities of it to oxidization.

Sorry if this is too vague or has already been answered, but I have an idea and I need to patent it. How do I go about that and how do I make sure it's not already patented?

I have a small screw on my car with a stripped head. It's roughly 12mm long and the head has a diameter of 6.5mm. It's Torx 10. Is there a way I can get it out without using a screw extractor? I don't have one. The screw itself isn't stuck, I just need to somehow get a grip on the head. Didn't work with a rubber band.
