Whats up /diy/abetics, thought I'd show you the plan for tomorrows project. It's a cheap as fuck router based surface planer, because non-square planks are the bane of my life. It's pretty simple, and permanently set at 3mm cut height. Kinda worried about not having a decent slide wood on wood but yeah let me know what a piece of shit you think its gonna be xx.

So I just moved into a new house and I want to decorate my room a bit different than it usually is. My basic goal is to have a very minimalist design. I also have a couple interesting ideas for lighting.(there is currently no permanent lighting in the room) I want to create a feel similar to that of a James Turrell exibit.>pic related I'm planning on using some sort of fabric as a back drop along the extents of a single wall in my bedroom, then I will construct a frame around the border of the wall that will house led lights (rope lights?). the lights will shine on the fabric and reflect into the rest of the room. It would be cool if I could get a multi color system going that slowly changes as time passes. I'm also planning on making another light feature that consist of framing along the ceiling (much like crown molding) that will house similar lights. the frame will have a translucent material stretched around it in order to diffuse the light, again, probably using led rope lights or christmas lights. If anyone has done anything like this I would appreciate any advice. I'm shooting for the end product of my room to be my mattress on the floor, a small table next to it and the lighting system.

Need some expert's help in checking/modifying the codes below so they work.

My friend of many years is going off in summer to work in Europe (we live in America). Ever since we were in high school we always used to drink at a really foresty woodland deep inside a park trail. As we got older more teenagers came to that spot, but we always felt that we were the forerunners of it. He's leaving and we're throwing one last party for him. My other friends and I pooled together about 500 for everything with 365 of it going to drinks and what not. I'd say the area of this spot is about 20 meters by 15 meters. Since we'll have some money left over are there any cheap ways to make the outdoor place more comfortable from bugs and the elements? I wanna give him a good party

Hey /diy/ is this repairable at all. My headset recently broke but thankfully it still functions but its becoming a nuisance to deal with as the adjuster will slide off with a slight motion.
Hello DIYI need some advice... 18 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Hello DIY I need some advice regarding landcaping in a forest. I want to plant some beatiful looking plants that can survive all year. I also realize that the forest floor is not very good for most plants. The plan so far is to throw some dirt from a garden center on the forest floor and stick some plants into it. But i also have some doubts it will work. Climate is norwegian coast with absolute lowest temperature of -10°c. What should i do?

DNC software not properly sending files

DNC software not properly... 4 posts and 1 image replies omitted. Click to view.
I'm using Cimco DNC to send programs to my CNC machines. Every time I try to send it, it throws an 085 or an 087 alarm. 085 is basically telling me my settings (baudrate, input bits, and/or I/O fault) are incorrect. 087 basically says my I/O unit is defective because it's overflowing my machine with information, which doesn't make sense since i'm using xOn/xOff I'm using Fanuc controls and windows 7 32bit (x86) OS. I/O = 1, CNC baud rate = 9600 The I/O RS-232 cord is fine, it works with the other computer. I'm pretty lost when it comes to this stuff, and there aren't many resources out there to help me. any insight would help me immensely

I'm into making my own sound systems, but I realized I don't know enough about it to really have fun with it. I take the speakers out of old sound systems, stereos, boomboxes, and put them into everyday items like traffic cones and buckets. (you should have seen my traffic barrel speaker system) It was all plugged into an old 300 watt amp, but it just hasn't done my system justice. Here's a few things I need help with... 1. If I have exposed speaker wires like in the picture, do I need to change anything? 2. How can I better the speakers sound quality? 3. What kind of amp do I need?

Does /diy/ know of any good software for designing rooms with 2D and 3D viewing modes? All I need is to be able to specify measurements and move furniture around, but all of the ten applications I've already tried either makes you choose furniture out a manufacturers catalog, or the 3D mode looks and controls like it's from the early nineties.

Hello guys! I have a friend of... 12 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Hello guys! I have a friend of mine who is a total Portal 2 fan, so I decided to make her a companion cube that plays music when you press a button and makes the cube light up. The basic idea is to use papier-mâché or styrofoam for the cube and the casing itself. I plan on making one of the sides or the hearts pressable. Once you do that, it should play the Portal 2 companion cube song and the hearts and the smaller lines should light up like in the picture. I have a good idea on how to built the cube, but I don't really have a clue about electronics, so I need help with that. I already googled around a little bit to find some help with the music playing and someone mentioned, that you could use a cheap mp3 player, upload the song to it and take the electronics out of the casing and put them inside and connect a small speaker to it. The problem is, that the mp3 would need to get turned on and the song would need to be played as well. Since I have no clue about electronics I have no idea how to get this to work. If I use an mp3 player I would also place the usb port of the player on one of the sides, so she would be able to recharge the batteries of the thing. I would really appreciate your help and I am also open for other ideas.
