I'm about to do a workshop roof.

There's a section that overhangs the door about a foot or two. How can I align the shingles on this part so when I start doing the main roof area, the seams are all properly spaced?

The roof looks like this when viewed perpendicular to roof face.

Center the shingles on the little roof. Do the same for the main roof. You might have to do a lot more cutting though.

dry fit your ridge vent and pull measurements off it.

>>1092617
Start from the leftmost corner of the main roof. Then backtrack the last 2 feet. Be careful prying the shingles when tucking the last 2 feet in.

So we're completely renovating this house my partner bought. We're turning the front shed into a utility room (it's attached to the house already).

We want the floor tiled and it's a solid concrete floor. My question is, do we need to insulate the floor? The only way I've seen people do this is with building a false floor first... I can't seem to find any way of tiling on top of insulation?

Pic: One of the insulation types we are using. This one is going under our wooden flooring in the main part of the house.

I'm taking part in a pour pretty soon. They say wear natural fibers and avoid synthetics as they can melt, but if all I can find on short notice is 98% cotton 2% spandex would that be okay?

Other than that I'll be wearing standard PPE (leather boots, spats, jacket, hard hat, ect.) I'm not doing any actual pouring either. I'll just be keeping the molds hot, so I'll be well away from the flowing metal.

Should be ok for someone not in the immediate pour area, but its not very resistant and will catch fire/get holes burnt through it quicker than you can say 'oh fuck'
Wool and wool blend are quite good in that they will last long enough for some lower temp metals to cool on the surface before they burn though, steels and the like tend to burn through anything though.

Flatbed printers. They exist, but the cost for large format equipment is way beyond what most people can afford ($25k and up, not including the RIP).

How large? I have an Epson R2880 13"x19" and it has an extra "slot" in the front where you can insert rigid media for printing. It can also print on fabric and other non-standard stuff.

I've never actually tried either though.

I want to utilize a large piece of granite counter and make it into a coffee table, It would just require cutting two of the sides off then polishing those sides. Does anyone have experience doing anything like this? From youtube it just looks like you cut it with a diamond blade on a circular saw or angle grinder, I'm wondering if I could continue to shape it with a flap disc or files? From there would I just hit it with varying levels of sand paper then a polishing wheel? All help is appreciated

Don't know jack shit about granite but if you're gonna have enough extra I'd suggest cutting a small piece off to practice with first. You could also try getting some scraps from contractors and such
>>
Chances are decent that you're going to burn up your saw and grinder. I did granite for a year a while back and it's not cheap or easy.

If you still plan on it keep it cool and wet and do multiple shallow passes. You polish up the sides by stoning it first then running it with polishing pads. Again, with the pads you need it to stay cool and wet or it will haze over.

Really, you're better off scoring it in a few spots and just breaking it leaving a rough edge. Or going by the back of the shop and seeing if one of the guys will do it for 75 bucks...

>leaving a rough edge

Thats exactly what I'd do in this case. The juxtaposition of the perfectly smooth surface with the rough raw edges would be a nice touch

Bonus points if you design a base that uses a large plank of wood with a live edge that you finish glass smooth with the live edge to match the granite

Tha'ts what the clamp is for. If you rest your side-face area on the edge of the bed, it's comfy but you need another edge to prevent it from falling.

The chin pillow is just extra support

Also, a massage table / pillow for it is like this except they put pressure on the forehead which i don't want.

Thank you for effort though

3d printing buildings can be done in 1-2 day with current iterations. With future iterations, the platform would be cheaper, more modular, precise, faster, smaller

There are many potential advantages, among others the ability to construct stronger homes in rural areas without the need for bulky materials.

In a time where local human labour is becoming increasingly expensive, and modular prefab houses are becoming more common, squirting a house out of a nozzle is a natural next step.

2 MB,
So my dad hinted that he wanted a cigar humidor/cigar bundle from online for Christmas. I did a little research though, and all of the packages come with a shitty humidor, and only a couple good cigars in a mass of shitty ones. Who wants a humidor that is just spanish cedar connected with butt joints, and covered with thin veneers, coupled with an inaccurate hydrometer.

So, instead I am going to build a nice humidor, and pack it with all top of the line cigars. Knowing his tastes, instead of just using spanish cedar for the entire box, I am going to build out the exterior...

I got it all designed with the final dimensions at 12"x8.5"x4.75", with 4.25" of the height being the box, and the remaining .5" the lid. The bottom of the box is set in by .25", so the inside depth is 4". The materials on the box, are .25" Oak, and .25" Spanish Cedar, so the wall thickness is .5" all around. So the final chamber size is 11"x7.5"x4".

These dimensions allow it to hold cigars up to a Churchill, which encompasses all but the weirdest...

Here is the diagram for the Spanish Cedar. It is the standard for humidors, because it holds a lot of moisture, doesnt get moldy/mildewy, and has a great aroma. However, it's hard to find and I had to source it online- and it is EXPENSIVE.

Ignore the rocketry mandrill, the Oak is just in front of it. At this point I was still waiting on my Spanish Cedar, hydrometer, hydration device, hinge, grain filler, and I had yet to decide on the finish.

Hey /diy/, I'm a bit short on money this holiday season and was wondering if anyone could help me out with some ideas for gifts. Thanks!
