Hello /diy/, I am looking to make a shelf. Nothing fancy (see picture). My concern is the choice of wood, is there something I should prefer? My other concern is whether just screwing all the boards to the 2 200cm boards is enough. The regular shelves usually have a backing board which prevents them from swaying. I suppose the bracket will prevent that, but I am not sure. Should I use two?

I have a couple dozen of these out-door solar lights I got from free curbside. I planned on scrapping the aluminum posts and the tops (bulb shade/cover/something.) Is there anything interesting I can do with the solar panels to make use or re-purpose? I know most have slots for 1 AA battery and a few have slots for 2 AA. Possibly 4"x 4" solar glass (not much more or less). (Haven't taken them apart yet, answers depend on how careful I am removing the aluminum around the panels to scrap Also found a Honda push mower engine that was taken apart because of bent crank, more scrap!)

Can someone explain me what does it mean a solar panel having 100W? If I have this, current limiter and battery, can I run a 100W motor continuously 7/24?

'Tiny House Nation' explores the new trend of downsizing your life into 400sqft or less

0 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
In “Tiny House Nation,” renovation experts and hosts, John Weisbarth and Zack Giffin, travel across America to show off ingenious small spaces and the inventive people who live in them, as well as help new families design and construct their own mini-dream home in a space no larger than 500 square feet. From a micro-apartment in New York City to a caboose car turned home in Montana to a micro-sized mobile home for road tripping – this is a series that celebrates the exploding movement of tiny homes. From pricey to budget friendly, “Tiny House Nation” is not a typical design show, but one that proves size doesn’t always matter – it’s creativity that counts.
Hey guys.I come here now and... 6 posts and 1 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Hey guys. I come here now and then with home improvement questions. Have a (hopefully) simple one for you guys. I'm looking to construct a bedframe and headboard for a queen sized bed. I've found plans online for the structure of the bed and am going to go about procuring the wood sometime this or next week. My issue is the upholstry (I believe that is the word) on the headboard. The few sites I've found with tutorials on /diy/ upholstry or tufting don't seem to show how to make headboards which are almost like puffy sofas. Can you guys give me some advice on this? Is there a name for this type of headboard? Is this something over the head of a beginner /diy/er?

>under 1,000 sq. ft. house >built in the 1950's Can someone with little experience renovate the whole thing (or at least a room) alone without killing themselves? Seems like something like this is the only thing I can afford.

I got a macbook with ableton live 8 audio suite. Can someone recommend a good mic that won't have that lisp when I sing and very little white noise?

Cheap webcams with low latency?

12 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Does anyone know where I could get webcam(s) with low latency at something like 1000×1080 per eye? Lower resolution is fine, but that's ideal. Also, if you would happen to know of any cheap IR (or other night vision) webcams (lower resolution is fine on these, but latency would still ideally be low) Physical lens zoom is a big bonus, and the smaller the better. The goal is to run two or three of these at the same time. Help is appreciated, because the only cameras I can find are either super low-res, super expensive, or they're cheap and highres but unable to stream video.
Hey guys. First time... 11 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Hey guys. First time poster. Basically a slipped in the shower a few months ago and busted a nice little hole in the wall with my elbow. I put some plaster and shit on simply so that it wouldn't grow mold or anything behind the panel. So I live in an apartment and maintenance should have reported it to the landlord, but they never did. So, I emailed her myself and got maintenance to come in and look at it (these guys really have no fucking clue what they're doing). Anywho. It looks like the plastic panel just needs to be replaced, and I believe those are $15. I couldn't imagine it taking more than 1-2 hours to fix it, so I'm assuming it should cost no more than $60 to fix. Obviously I don't know enough about handy man work otherwise I'd do it myself. But my landlord basically said they're probably going to reinstall the tub.... And from what I understand that can cost hundreds to thousands of dollars. Am I getting fucked here? Pic is the damage.

Hey /diy/. There is a contest where you can win pretty neat charger. In order to win it, you need to take picture which proves that you really need it. Can't think any original ideas, just to smash my charger or photoshop error on phone i.e. your charger can't charge shit. You need a new one. Any ideas? Thanks in advance!

Fix a PSU?

12 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
I lost my second enermax power supply now after about 10 years on this machine. I have a psu tester that shows it's not supplying the -5v on the cpu 20/24pin. Could this be as simple as opening it up and replacing a capacitor? I already purchased a cheap replacement but I'd like to fix this one and keep it as a back up if possible.

I got a Trace Elliot bass amp that needs a few replacement parts. This is my first /real/ try at replacing circuitry on a pcb and I definitely want to fuck up my amp by being an idiot. Hoped you guys could help Is there a significant difference between 1/4" input jacks that are PCB mountable and ones that aren't? All the input jacks in the amp are either mono or stereo like in the picture (gold plated, but w/e)
