So I want to build a bicycle garage. Basically the plan is to build a 6'x9'x6' wooden box that's open on one side, on a concrete slab floor. Problem is, I've never done this before. So would this work? >nail together a wooden frame and throw it on the ground >put concrete slabs in the middle and in front so they sit level with the frame >erect 4 wooden "pillars" on each corner using angle brackets >nail 4" wide wooden boards to these horizontally on three sides, all the way to the top >use angled overlapping wiooden boards as roof, also nailed on >should look similar to the pic in the end.

Hey /diy/ I need a new hobby and I've seen a few threads about soldering/circuitry/robotics etc and I have a background in physics which should help. So I was wondering if you knew of any introductory books I could buy/download, preferably something with more practical examples rather than theory. Although theory is always good too. So, I guess babby's first foray into circuitry thread?

running ethernet lines

So I'm getting shit speeds across my house from my wifi router. I've got a 16 port gigabit switch and one entry point for my coaxial port. I figure I would run some long ethernet lines through the walls and install some new ethernet fixtures in some further rooms. Tips or directions on running lines and installing a home network?

Posting here and /fa/ since I'm not sure which board would be better for it. I want to paint/dye/whatever these shoes. What would I use to color them? Leather paint seems like it's more for hard leather than soft, but I don't know if suede dye is the way to go either.

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.

The other night I watched this pbs nova documentary about these high-quality Viking swords that have been found. They're made of high quality crucible steel, and also 800 years older than any steel of the same quality in Europe. http://youtu.be/nXbLyVpWsVM Worth a look. This guy is an amazing craftsman. I have long wanted to get into this sort of forging, etc but I don't know where to begin. What does /diy/ think is a good way to get started. tl;dr How do I into smithing? Assume modest general skills and resources.

What can I make from old PC parts?

What can I make from old PC... 27 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
I got bored and felt like I wanted to make some stuff, so I made something. I took a fan from a computer, stripped the wires, and connected it to a USB wire. We've all seen that. What I did differently was I cut a hole in a can of a coffee can lid, and stuck it in there. I put some laundry detergent and some water in the bottom of the can, and BAM! Electric air freshener. You guys got any cool ideas for making things out of old computer part? >pic related; the finished product. Looks like crap, but it works.

I would like to start making my own microwave meals so I can not only control my eating but also cut food prep time. By making a meal and freezing them in trays I can limit myself to one tray, zap it, eat, not worry about too much mess. Any ideas on how to go about this and what holds well in the freezer? I've never froze left overs before.

Hi, /diy/I wanted to do... 1 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Hi, /diy/ I wanted to do something like the side picture, only with a lot more power. I have a ViperTek 15M watt mini taser to use as a base build(I had it from a christmas gift from my mother when I moved away) My to do list is as follows: 1. Switch out the slider switch with a rocker from RadioShack 2. Extend the leads from the contact points to a point on my glove so they don't come in contact with each other, sealing the leads with tinfoil 3. Mount the electrical components to a project encasement 4. Solder and test I was just wondering if I'm missing a step at all, or if I'm being completely dumb and it won't work? Any input is appreciated. And for the record, this is just an elecrical question, and not about weapons. I'm purely concerned with how the wiring would go, and plan to use this as a display piece for my home, since I'm a skrillex fan and love the use of it in Bangarang, however want it to be functional.

Hey /diy/. I'm thinking about making a self-retractile lawn mower cable, through the system used in pic related. Anyone know how that works? Can't seem to find any explanation on the web.
