- What is the last thing you made? (pics pls)
Ah well, if we’re allowed to post pics of bushies and sharp stuff 😉
old kent pattern axe head that I refurbed and a small knife that I fitted scales to (gransfors helve for lazyness)
both of these I bought a blade and handled myselfPosted 4 years agowhatnobeerMember
Not a great photo, or quite finished yet, but this bike pole has just gone up in my living room.
Stolman pole from ikea, some box section pipe from B&Q, couple of hooks and some nuts and bolts. Sorted. Just needs a bit of cleaning and a coat of paint on the bare metal I think.Posted 4 years agobedmakerSubscriber
It’s an installation for the Belladrum festival last weekend. Kind of a steampunk theme to it.
It’s a chunk of an old wooden trawler, it’s 6M across the beam to give an idea of scale.
Then it was filled with old stuff, brass instruments to vent steam out of and most importantly – three flamethrowers. I must get pics of them in action. One of them blasts out of the old toilet.Posted 4 years ago
It all went down pretty well 🙂horaMember
Just finished my sons cot bed
Was a challenge to build but he and the wife like it!
Wow. Sounds a wee bit cheesy but it looks like you made that with just love, no sawing etc. 🙂
Ormancheep- I’d love to make that as we have a space soon where the greenhouse currently is on a concrete base. Where did you get the door and did you simply measure up yourself/designed on the hoof by you or to a internet plan?Posted 4 years ago
Hora, door if just a bit of loglap nailed to a z-shaped brace on the back.
Front skin is thin (I think 6mm) outdoor grade ply, just bent around the frame and screwed. Sides, floor and roof are 12mm outdoor ply.
Roof was then felted, battened out and ‘shingles’ nailed on, made from bit of treated feather board, with pilot holes pre-drilled.
Window frames were scored half way through at 1″ centres on one side, so they would curve around the front skin.
There is a simple mezz floor inside too, with ladder.
All thrown together without any real measurements really, for that rustic look 🙂 You live local I think. You welcome to have a look, when you get round to doing yours.
I didn’t price it up, just kept buying what I needed. Was scary how much it cost in the end (about £500), but I suppose it could have been much cheaper if I hadn’t just kept going to B and Q.Posted 4 years agoDrillskiMember
I made a fantastic memory with my 16 year old daughter cycling 111 miles from home to Barmouth in a day, that will stay with me forever, and she made some money for a very worthy cause.
and her STW Thread with post ride report, worth a read I think, but then I’m biased.Posted 4 years ago
