>>906241 >one of those cheap usb circuit boards that you can wire switches and buttons onto the girl looks nice, but it would have been more helpful to provide a picture of the board in question

Sup DIY. Quick question. So I'm making a homemade boxing bag, and was thinking of doing something like pic related to hang it up so that the bag is hanging centered. I was thinking two knots like in the diagram internally would be perfect to hold the bag in place, cord will be wrapped around the bag externally in between the two knots.
Two questions: 1. Is this a good idea or can anyone think of anything better 2. what would be the best kind of knot to use?
>>906195 1: How much kg's is your bag going to be? What is actually going to stop said bag to slide down and fall on the floor? 2: Lower one- monkey fist http://www.animatedknots.com/monkeysfist/ upper one- not a damn clue
I'm trying to build garden beds from old reclaimed wood, and I don't have enough long pieces. So I'm trying to nail together boards to create the full 8 foot garden bed length, but everything I try is super flimsy and breaks. The only solution I can think of is metal braces with screws. Am I on the right track or is there some official correct way to join 2 short boards into one long board?
That video is fascinating, but I'm working with old wood half-eaten by bugs. Even if I had the right tools to make a joint like that, it won't work on this wood. I've tried overlapping with a third board, but the third board always splits apart.
inb4 "Buy new wood" That's when gardening gets more expensive than buying veggies from the store.
Hi /diy/, I got a school assigment and I have to build 3 simple devices using IC74 series. It can't be any of basic circuits(comparator, multiplexor.. etc.). Could you suggest me something fairly easy to make, like transistor tester. Thank you.
I love the feeling of hot showers with the steam and love how it makes my sense of smell better. Love the way to steam opens up my pores etc.
but the hot water does a lot of damage to my skin. really dries it out. this past summer I did nothing but cold showers and my skin felt sooooo good. was amazing.
So how do I get the benefits of hot showers without drying my skin out.
buy steamer and then use cold water through shower head? Saw one for $1000 and it looked dangerous to use. I'm more of the type of person that sits in front of a computer... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Hey /diy/ I know this might not be the most correct board to post this on but I figure you guys are probably the most likely to be able to help me out. Somebody found this doohicky at work today, any idea what it could be?
Hey /diy/, I'm trying to turn one of my rooms into an infinity room like the one by Yayoi Kusama (see image). So far, I'm thinking of making the mirrors from mylar stretched over wooden frames, and getting a few hundred LED's for the lights. I don't have firsthand experience with either of these things, so I wanted to see if anyone might know of better alternatives.
>>905842 LEDs come in strips now. The easiest thing to do is to buy Ikea LED strips, set them to change colors and run them around the perimeter of the ceiling. As for mirrors, mirrored walls use to be a big thing. You could probably still buy them from any company that specializes in wall coverings. It's going to be expensive though. Any mirror you make will not be of good quality, and the 'infinite effect' is ruined by shitty quality mirrors. If a mirror has even a slight green hue, about 10 reflections in... Comment too long.

>>905858 Thanks for the advice, I'll definitely go with the led strips. That's what I feared with the mirrors though. I already ordered some mylar, so I guess I'll make small test box to see how well it reflects. If it ends up being bad, I guess I'll just have to save for decent mirrors.
>>905673 I mean, if you have to ask you clearly have no idea what your doing so don't do it. Heaving said that (and sounded like a total dyke) what do you actually want to do in the lab? Is it an analytical lab, a research and test stile. Owning lab equipment is legal as long as you don't use it for illegal activities.
I've recently begun learning more about bushcraft, tools, fixing things, etc. and am now looking for my first multi-tool. The thing is I still don't know very much about tools and the companies ( Gerber, Leatherman, Victorinox, etc. ) that make them and decided it would be a good idea to seek out suggestions. Thus here I am and here is what I want to ask you: what is the best every-day-carry/do-it-yourself tool and why? Does X tool suit your needs better than Y or maybe you like A tool because it is smaller and/or more durable than B? If you have... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Any folks build products that they're looking sell? Knitting sweaters, making soap, whittling figurines, etc. Personally I build rustic furniture and cabinetry and sell it locally. I'm somewhere in between lucrative hobby and actual business presently.
I get that most people who actually do stuff don't have much time for Chinese cartoon forums, but there's gotta be some folks out there making stuff and looking for bigger markets, and I'd like to hear from them.
>>905589 What do you use as a distribution channel? I've been selling furniture and such through Facebook groups/Craigslist. I want to set up a booth at the local indoor flea market and see where that takes me.

Not so much a DIY question, but something for any plumbers out there. Had a plumber install a water tank in my yard today while I was at work and the missus didn't ask any questions. We're required by council to have a tank and it was in our original plans. But, I'm not quite sure how this works? Apparently he had to wait for it to fill up before he left. I don't know why you'd have to fill a tank? Isn't the purpose of it to collect rainwater? Any help would be appreciated
>>905523 Pretty much the brass pipe is the only thing thats connected and one of the pvc pipes is a run off or overflow drain or something which flows through a sump pump. Theres a pvc pipe off the house which runs into the concrete which I'm assuming is the other pipe? But honestly I don't know. The brass pipe connects to the house and apparently the plumber said that the taps will spit and spat cause air will be caught in them. So is my water now just running through the tank?
