Adjust your output resolution
It's giving you a preview at a non-native on it resolution. Adjust in your render settings so output res is input res and the dark lines will be gone

I'm interested in getting into woodworking. I'm looking for a project book that delineates which tools/machinery are needed along with step-by-step instructions for making each project.

Anyone know of something that fits the bill?

The technique of furniture making by Ernest Joyce.
I would suggest looking at ana-white.com
A lot of books don't deliniate machinery, because a lot can be done multiple ways. eg tablesaw/bandsaw/handsaw can all cut tenons well. if you're careful, pretty much everything you do on a drill press can be done by hand (just with more inaccuracy and difficulty). Hell, there is no woodworking that was invented after the invention of electricity that can't be done entirely with hand tools.

>can't be done entirely with hand tools

Power tools help enjoy the process though.

I once built a gate to keep the dogs outside and it took me 2 hours because I was using a handsaw to cut green heart lumber. After getting a shitty ryobi 5 1/2" cordless power saw another gate for a larger door literally takes less than 30 mins. While I enjoy using a hand saw it can get tedious when making multiple cuts of the same size in a hardwood

Hello everyone. I want to know how to make grow-in-water toys. I have experience using silicone and resin and I have a 3d printer to work with. I already have the matrix for the toy, but I don't really know wich material I must use and how. I can't find any intructions of making it and wikipedia says they are made from a superabsorbent polymer, but doesn't say wich one. My only source says they are maded of polyacrylonitrile, ethylene glycol and glycerol, but -again- doesn't say how to combine them.

Can someone help me or direct me with a link?

Update: I find a new recipe:

"[...] a mixture of sodium polyacrylate, polyvinyl acetate (a polymer used as a binder) and ethylene vinyl acetate (a polymer used to mold the toy into whatever shape it’s supposed to be)."
I think they are just regular foam, compressed and coated with a glycerol and ethylene glycol shell (which dissolves in water). I could be thinking of a different one.

thanks for the response

How can one make chromatic light using LED. like razer deathadder chroma does
Such nice fluid transitions

For what can I use infrared LED light (scrapped from razer deathadder)

Simplest option: get an LED which does this automatically. One component, done. They aren't even expensive.
More complex option: get an RGB led, drive R/G/B suitably. You can use a microcontroller to produce the dimming patterns.
where can i get that LED.
I didn't know there existed multicolor LED
forgot to ask.
How is it called?

Ok my dad went full retard.. Got metallic paint (he doesn't know how to paint anyway) He used silver metallic paint and sprayed it in the dining room.

Was thinking of building one of these IBC aquaponic sytems. What sort of air pump would I need in this? Assuming there'd be about 200 gallons of water in it.

Presuming this is for fish, why would you use an air pump over a venturi?
Oh, didn't know of this method until now. Well that helps alot lol. Thanks mang

So that just requires a water pump then right? Could I get my air flow as well as my flood and drain to the plant bed off just one pump?
not that adnon but out of curiosity why does everyone recommend venturi?

Your going to wear the pump out faster and an airpump is also a pretty cheap way to circulate water and add air.

This is my first /diy/ thread so forgive me if it's not good format. My brother and I were thinking about how we could make a catamaran by ourselves using pvc pipe as the outriggers and some sort of metal or wood frame and a sail. We did some displacement calculations and the size/amount of pvc we would need wouldn't be cost effective. Any ideas of other ways to make a catamaran? Pic related, found on internet

Find 2 shitty used kayaks and strap them together.
learn how to fiberglass

theres a guy on youtube who lives on a tiny island and makes solar powered catamarans
Yeah, I've had this on my possible project list for a while.
Basically, the best/most cost effective design is >>931274, but with skin on frame. you can build a skin on frame design for <$100 in parts, it's some pine wood, cloth (canvas is heavy, but cheap and works (from painter's dropcloths) but nylon is better, will be most expensive though), twine, staples/needle/thread, and a sealer. I've heard good results from deck sealers. Use mortise and...

what the fuck are you trying to do here?
a light switch?
so what is this?
at a guess, power cable, switch cable and lamp cable?
you need 4 terminals, not 3.
all cpc (earth) together
line (brown or red) from power goes to switch (brown or red)
switch (blue or black) (wrap a bit of brown electrical tape around the wire) goes to bulb (brown or red)
bulb (blue or black) goes to power (blue or black)
box is plastic so it doesn't need to be earthed.

blues should be nowhere near the red if the red is power feed
you have the bulb and the switch...

Hi /diy/, coming here from /o/. I bought this decal awhile ago and was super excited when it finally came in after a month or so of waiting. When I try to take off the transfer paper the decal doesn't come off with it, it stays stuck on the notecard/backing thing. Any possible way to get this off or am I completely boned? :(

Have you tried taping it to the car while you do multi-lane drifting to eurobeat and seeing if that helps?
you're going to have to peel back at the hardest angle you can, almost 180 degrees while using a ruler or something to keep the transfer paper flat. its a fucking pain in the dick. I'd be mad as fuck, either they used a shitty transfer paper or the wrong type of vinyl, because automotive vinyl is not very sticky.
Yeah, I'm not the only one who waited forever for one either. 3 or 4 other people are having the same problem right now. You think i could use a credit card like you would normally do trying to get it on an actual surface to get it to stick to the transfer paper if that doesn't work?

How do I clean this white stuff off of my helmet? Rubbing alcohol only smudges it around. Water doesn't seem affect it. I may have seen some small crystals on my helmet around the areas where the smudges are, so that might be what it is.

Anyone oxidized wood here? My wife wants furniture like pic related, but I have all the tools and saws needed to make them myself. Saving a few hundred dollars per piece and picking up an old hobby sounds good to me.

Anyway, we've got some steel wool in a jar with vinegar sitting right now, but I'm wondering if any of you have experience or tips that could come in handy.

Wood finishing general I guess?
11 replies and 1 images submitted. Click here to view.
Use a sponge brush. Apply it uniformly and liberally. After a few minutes wipe it off with a paper towel so it finishes uniformly. Flat surfaces that collect the vinegar can get darker than vertical surface that drain.

Most importantly test it on scrap pieces of wood from your project. I made a coffee table out of some cheap 2x10 d.fir surfaced perfectly smooth and after three or four applications it was a deep rich ebony like color.

Maple goes to a maximum of light grey while mahogany will go jet black.
Theres a chemical you can buy I saw it on youtube wood work channel. Ages any kind of wood legit by wiping it on you get like 50 years..
Vinegar and steel wool is an order of magnitude cheaper and just as effective
