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?

Hi /diy/, I have some small pewter items I would like to make look like old, beat up iron. My thought was to electroplate them, but I am having some trouble googling this because it is uncommon to plate something with iron. Does anyone have any experience to lend, or maybe is this a dumb way to achieve the result I want?

Okay /diy/ I want to try brewing spirits at home. Was wondering if anyone has any good tips/books to read. Or on the other hand, if anyone knows what to do/what I need. I know the basic fermentation of sugar and yeast to create ethanol but not really sure where to go, or what equipment I'll need.

Hello /diy/ I have a CB radio (pic related) that I just took out of my vehicle (due to upgrade) and I would like to turn it into a base station in my garage. I would really like to build my own antenna for both the knowledge and learning experience. I have done some lurking on the web and looked at some home-built antennas, tutorials, theories of operation, etc. but I come to /diy/ looking for whatever knowledge you doers may have. I am open to any suggestions, links, recommendations, and advice on where to start. Ultimately, I am looking to build something relatively small, I do not want a massive antenna looming over my garage. So, Budget: < $100 Equipment/Tools: No problem Electronic Experience: VERY basic understanding of electronic fundamentals, absolutely no experience regarding radio theory. tl;dr : I would like /diy/ to personally suggest some information regarding the basics of building a base station antenna for my CB Thanks!

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.

Making a Practice Drum

Making a Practice Drum 9 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
need to make a practice drum and I need to use as little money as possible. I made a pretty good drum skeleton out of pvc pipe, and I'm trying to stretch this plastic tarp over it till it's tight enough to feel kind of like a real traditional drum. But I can't figure out any way to do it. I've done it before with a barrel. I weaved the rope through the drum head and tightened it by tying a stick where the ropes met in the middle, and twisting it until I was happy with the sound, then I just nailed it in and undid the ropes. That sounded and felt perfect, but the barrel that I used cost me around $55, and I can't find anything around the same size for a cheaper price. I can't nail it into the pvc, and there's no way that I can think of to tie down the ropes while they are taut without leaving the stick in there. I tried making the head out of packing tape, but it sounded terrible and didn't feel very good at all. I might try duct tape next, I think it might work better, but if I can make the tarp work, that would be best. Any ideas? If the tarp works, then this only cost me around $30, and I have enough material to make 2 drums. Thanks in advance!

I need some help. I want to grow my own white mushrooms but I have no idea where to start. What to feed them, where to grow them, is it sustainable to grow them in a shed when temps regularly drop below -20 celcius where I'm from? or any other tips and tricks you have.

Ok /diy/, idk where better to ask this so I'm posting this here. Two months ago, I moved into an apartment, and the furnace is a gas furnace. So far, my past two gas bills have been $133 and $172. My apartment is only 600 square feet, and I keep the place at 68* or lower. It's been on average about 25* outside. Windows are only a few years old, and it's a basement level apartment so it's well insulated. Last month, I used 21 MCF of gas between the furnace and my stove, which I rarely cook on. Does this seem like a really large amount of gas for such a small apartment?

Any metal spinners in? Absolute novice here but i've got an idea for an all copper shower but I don't wanna be buying some off the shelf chinese shower head to finish it. The idea is that I take two copper discs and spin them to a wood mold, one top piece pictured, to receive a slightly convex pre drilled insert before spinning the excess edge of the top piece again to seal it in. Anyway, I'm a complete novice and I'll have to give it some practice but can you see any flaws in my plan?
