Not sure if this board is the right place to post this. But I moved into a new apartment and it has this type of floor which we are trying to clean. I have no idea what it's called, or how to clean some black stains that it has here and there. Thanks.

We all know small/tiny/shipping container homes are impractical when not downright stupid, but I still want one. So come on /diy/, post 'em, those shitty sketches you have of your dream small house. 3D sketches, floor plans, photos from the internet, house boats, holes in the ground. Anything goes. Dig them out of the pile on your desk and post them here for us to see. Or draw a new one if you like. Doesn't matter if you can't draw your way out of a paper bag, we want to see them. This treasure was in among my pile of loose pages. One bedroom, one bathroom, kitchen/living/dining space, sort of even has storage space. Now I have shit to do but when I come back I want to see other people's impractical ideas too. It'll be fun, I promise.

Hullo Would making gymnastics parallel bars like pic related from plumbing pipe/iron pipe/galvanized steel pipe be feasible? Or would wood (next pic) be better?

hi /diy/. I want to be an autodidact. I do not want to attend school, indebt myself, and come to no fruition. In the time it would take me to do my re-assessed degree (8 years, originally was physics and german/french but I would add political science and philosophy) I could learn much more than that and work at the same time. I could pay off my debt within a year and save up, and by the 4th or so year I could travel. Anyone have resources to help me? I know of things like khanacademy and such, I prefer large collections such as below: openculture.com/freeonlinecourses quantizd.blogspot.ca/p/so-you-want-to-become-physicist.html physicsdatabase.com/book-list-by-title academicearth.org/online-college-courses I've been collecting books, too. I have a whole course on world history focusing on communism and marxist ideology, lots about genetics and biology, political strategy, etc. and a lot of other books. even a textbook on canadian politics and a bunch of canadian history books (home country), a book about what the 'self' is, and a copy of a bunch of dialogues by Plato. I feel as if I will never get to read these if I don't do this. I feel as if I will never learn quick enough. Help me, /diy/. I don't want to be a slave.

Hey /diy/ so I have this boombox I made and it's all well and good apart from these clips on the top of it, they make this really annoy very noticeable rattling sound whenever I turn it up, can anyone recommend a solution or place to buy a different pair, I'm looking for hardware stores online but to be honest I dont even know what you call these clips. I just need a simple, easy to attach fastening thing to keep it closed with as few moving parts as possible

Hey /diy/ not sure if this is allowed here but I figure you guys would know the most about this kind of thing I have a twin-sized oak captain's bed in my room at my parents house. Pic related, it's the bed. They want to sell it because they've had it for 15 years and it's just time to get rid of it. I have a person interested in buying it but I have no idea how much to sell it for. It's solid oak, the headboards are removable, and it weighs probably between 250-300 pounds. All the drawers are removable (except the square one, it is on hinges but is almost as long as the bed itself) and it measures 8 feet long, 4 feet wide and between 2-3 feet tall (depending on headboards). I posted it on CL for $200, but I have no idea how much one of these should go for. It isn't one of those shitty thin flimsy ones like they sell at Ikea, it's incredibly strong, sturdy and heavy. You guys have any idea how much it would be worth?

Wow. Long time lurker, first time poster. I can't believe I am finally getting the courage to post on your board! I really think you guys are cool and I hope we can get along. The question that brings me here is this: What do you do yourself?

hey /diy/ So I am building a coffee cart. The structure is already built. Framed with 2 x 4s and plywood and finshed with some nice stained pine. It looks pretty awesome, but is useless until I install the electric and some light plumbing. Requesting some help with building the electrical system today. My expierience with this is fairly limited to installing a couple outlets. I am unfamiliar with load capacities of wires and such. I need to run the following things: Grinder(used sporadically but plugged in at all times): 115v 13.4a 1541w Grinder 2(same usage as grinder #1): 110v 650w Espresso machine(always on): 110v 2070w Water Heater(always on but saw a claim that it only uses 50w once water is already heater): 120v 800w Water heater(always on): 120v 1000 watts water pump: 115v 100w There will probably be a couple other random things such as water filters, softeners or lights that are relativley low power usage. So I would like to put together a system that ties together about 8 outlets that will be powered by a single plug. Initial plan was just to tail a couple 15 or 20 amp outlets off a GFI but I am unsure of how heavy wire I will need. Do I need to make an electrical panel? Power source requirments for plugging into builing or heavy generator? Any advice or thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Telescope

How can I make a decent telescope that can view deep space objects? I'd prefer to make a dobsonian mount, newtonian scope for the sake of cost. Like pic related. Budget should be under $500, so I'm actually saving money by building it. Anybody done this before and how? All the tutorials I've read so far were for cheap, weak scopes.

What's the most efficient way to go about if I want to try rooftop farming? A cheap and lightweight solution is what I'm looking for here.

Hi /diy/. I'm a really amateur glassblower. A friend of a friend has asked me repair a little glass pendant on which the loop has broken off. Problem is I only have clear borosilicate glass. I'm not sure if the pendant is soft glass or borosilicate. Is there any way to tell? If it is soft glass is there any way to attach a loop made of borosilicate? The book I used to learn said that soft glass can be sealed to boro by using many types of glass and gradienting the coefficient of expansion so it doesn't crack, but obviously I don't have access to any other types of glass.

Hey /diy/, I want to make one of these, a throttle for my flightstick, because the only real options are pretty expensive. The actual throttle bit looks easy enough, just a potentiometer on a hinge, that'll be no real trouble to make out of wood. As are all of the buttons, a few hat switches and analog switches can be easily linked up to an arduino or teensy to control the whole thing through software. My issue is in what to build the handrest out of. The ideal would be some cheap, light plastic product I can buy in a similar shape, drill a few holes through, and mount with no problems. But I can't really seem to find anything like it. Any ideas?

Hello! Realizing this might appear as a somewhat laughable question, I'm going to ask anyway. So long story short. My roomie is hosting a party. I won't be home. Roomie's friends are assholes and they've ravaged my room before. I collect antique books, hence I am not exactly pleased. Our doors are able to lock, however the previous owners painted everything on the doors, including locks. So my question is, is there an easy way to dissolve the paint so I can lock my door and go on vacation with a peaceful mind? pic unrelated
