Anyone have experience growing bamboo? In a new house and I'm looking to cultivate some bamboo for timber and possibly shoots, in addition to looking nice.
Obviously don't want any running species which will be a pain in the ass to control or spread to the neighbour's backyard. My climate is dry-mild-temperate, inland south east Australia, Canberra to be precise. We do get frosts so any tropical varieties are out. Soil is heavy clay but I'll be using clay breaker and adding top soil regardless. Also got some huge water tanks so hopefully water isn't... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I got bookcase like this. I want to hide stuff i got inside. Was thiking about getting some kind of curtain but im also thinking about some cardboard doors. I never seen anything like that though. Any of you have some ideas or examples to inspire me?
>>910678 No, plywood or a frame and panel door would be like 5-10 lbs. If too heavy, instead of having one door, it would be split up, so you'd have two or three. A concern for the doors though, is that you may need to screw the bookshelf to the wall, because when pulled open, that tall thin guy may tilt forward.
What projects could I do with an old dreamcast that doesn't work? I was just taking out all the parts and turning it into a case or something, but I would like to do something more creative and fitting for a recycled video game console.
I actually did think of an idea just now - using one as a home cloud server/torrent box with a 5tb external drive and owncloud or some shit like that. Would the RPi be well suited for this, or is there a better option I should be looking into?
>>910628 A lot of people make seedboxes and servers with their RPI. And again, you want the ram and power of the RPi2 over the 5$ one. You are going to pay triple the price of a Zero buying adapters to get it to run, at that point its only marginally more expensive to get the much stronger one with real HDMI and ethernet built onto it.
What is this type of chain link called? I have googled every synonym to the word chain and can't find it anywhere, not even a picture so I had to draw one. Every other link roller switches axis and i need to know what it's called so I may purchase some. Either that or I need some other type of chain that is rigid can push against itself, yet still remain flexible. Also it needs to hold at least 300-400 pounds. Thanks.
I have some experience laminating wood for table tops.
You need a jointer and a planer to do it well. With those in your kit, it's a piece of cake to dimension the laminations to be completely flat and of uniform thickness. Without it you need mad skills and patience with a hand plane, and even then the results won't be as good. A biscuit jointer is also very handy for lining up the laminations for the glue up. Without it, you will not be able to glue the laminations flush to each other. Pretty steep investment yes. If you aren't willing to do so, just go buy ready made table tops. They're better than the first 10 you'll make guaranteed.
>>910550 bent wood furniture. IKEA is well known for it. I've made a bent wood ring, and it's neat. basically plywood is a laminated wood, however, laminated wood doesnot have to be cross ply, it can have the plys all facing the same way.
You can do basic bent wood laminations by cutting relatively large plys on the tablesaw, too, for things like chair frames, and using steam to bend the 1/8" boards onto a frame before glueing them together.
I'm planning on building a gaming PC. My budget is $600-700 for just hardware. 1080p is fine for me, I don't need to play Crysis 3 on ultra.

>>910542 I just priced one out for someone, it was like 500-600 for an fx whatever and a gtx960 setup with SLI planned for later. Found a mobo for less than 100 with 2 x16 slots. Check out amazon if you have prime.
>What is on your Christmas wishlist? Small TIG/stick welder for practicing (I have a pretty big family plus my birthday is 10 days before christmas so I might get it as a "combined" gift, but I don't really expect to get it).
Some gift certificates for a working clothes store would be neat too, I'm gonna need quite a bit more when I'm out of trade school.
>What have you bought as a gift? Nothing /diy/-related, more /ck/ stuff.
Well, cement would work. But a thing to consider with using cement is that it's a brittle material.
If you were to say, drop the weight, there's a good chance that it might crack in half. Obviously you can mitigate that issue by building around a rebar frame and using various fibers or additives in the mix.
Also, you really don't need a cement mixer or a respirator. It's obviously not that great to breathe in but do consider that you'll be working with wet cement for basically the entire duration of the procedure and if you're... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Of course you can make your own tools. A reamer is pretty easy depending on the precision you want get a piece of tool steel round stock the diameter you want and truncate the end into a tri pyramid or four sided pyramid vola simple reamer. Drill bits you are probally better of buying one a size smaller than your reamer size. If you want on youtube theirs a channel by clickspring he makes clocks but quite a few custom reamers end mills etc his videos are quite good.
Easy. Tools for rifling: more difficult. It can be DIY, but it depends on what sort of production quantities you want. For a few parts, a high speed steel 'button' can be used. For production quantities, tungsten carbide will last longer.
