    If we’re doing paintings too, here’s one I finished recently. 1st ever watercolour (as an adult) and think I got the colours about right (for someone who’s colourblind 😯 )

    A new bathroom from a blue sweet with blue and white tiles floor to ceiling to a empty room full of rubble.
    Take a collection of things from ebay and a scaffold plank create a pleasnt place to take a dump.

    Good grief, you could carry a small child in that! Very impressive.

    Needed a decent hoe/grubber so made this up from a land rover spring and a reaper tooth yesterday. No fancy forging just a welder and angle grinder.

    That TU95 is seriously impressive.

    That’s a very nice zombie hacking tool you got there. 😀

    Love this – if I’d not bought one last month I’d have requested a comission for a second one!

    I got this kit for one of my birthday pressies. So younger Seadog and I sat down on a cold afternoon, set up the camera and gotto work.

    Not as impressive as the other efforts here, but we had fun. Took us much longer than anticipated, that’s why the light changes!

    Carbon top cap made using a 3D printed mould, it is just a proof of the theory really.

    Pacenti CL25’s on the hubs from my DayOne. Done today, with a 1/2kg saving over the old rim/tyre combo.

    A stable door for an upstairs mini terrace/flat roof.

    Poo with a view…

    The strap hinges on the shutters are normal hinges with the shapes cut in aluminium and painted. Looks quite convincing… 🙂

    A pair of monitor stands for the attic studio.
    Had a couple of spare hours at work…..the whole of a 6th form class off sick at once? Hmmm, suspicious!
    Knocked up out of whatever I had lying around, seem pretty sturdy, but might fill them with sand to dampen any vibrations. There’s a 10mm threaded steel rod running through them, so the tops can rotate. Gives them a bit more stability too.

    Floor lamps.

    Ones on left made with Ikea table lamps and Iroko and Holly legs/bases. Ones on right are glass bowls filled with fairy lights and mounted on Iroko tripods held with old lamp holders cut down.
    Pre Christmas was busy!
    😀

    @tymbian is that wardrobe MDF? If so what did you paint it with? Got something similar that needs finishing.

    @kayak i like the glass bowls filled with fairy lights, good idea that.

    Was given this pair of antlers by a friend for handles. Hung around for a while as i thought they were too nice to cut up. Eventually knocked together this sculpture and hung them on my shed wall.

    Wood is just cuttings of pine that were lying around, nailed together & burned with the blow torch, brushed and waxed.

    OS contour data (Terrain 50) taken into QGIS, contour lines coloured according to height using a calculated expression, exported as a pdf, tidied up in illustrator, printed onto fabric by Spoonflower and then sewn into a cushion.

    Really like your cushions, I would love something similar. Is this really as easy as you made it sound? and is the software free or expensive?

    Not just me, but we were putting the sides on this new section of climbing wall last night.

    It is significantly steeper than it looks in the photo.

    QGIS is opensource. It’s something I use in my working life, but it’s fairly easy to use. Although if you haven’t ever used GIS software it might not be quite as straightforward as I made out 🙂

    I can’t claim the credit for this epic build but I thought the singletrack massive might appreciate the skill and effort going into this project. The builder has two sons in the JLT Condor team and his youngest son is the UK Youth Cyclocross champ . [/url]

    I’ve just made some Jerk / Snatch Blocks for weight training. This pair go to my gym as my Coach wants a set (these cost £50 to make, pro ones cost £800). I’m curious to see how long they survive having weights dropped on them. All made form Structural timber 2×7 and 2×4.

    That mobile is absolutely fantastic, my boy would go nuts for that.

    Thanks. He doesn’t know what a tractor is yet but seems to like the bright colours anyway 😀

    P.S. It was all hand cut on scroll saw from 6 mm and 3 mm baltic birch ply and painted using acrylics.

    Made a couple of months ago, and conditioning nicely. Dreadful photo, though! Glass is scratched, beer is crystal clear and tasty as hell!

    (Oh, and before you say anything, I’m getting the Aga cleaned tomorrow, so leave it!)

    My old Ikea desk was too big, so built a new desk:

    It’s the only desk in the world with built-in storage for anti-tank rockets. Though I’m going to use it for bike tubing 😉

    Love the fact that it has a warning that’s it’s heavy but conveniently fails to mention it may be full of anti tank missiles.

    Health and safety gets everywhere – I found this sign in an old TA building:

    You wouldn’t want to catch anything off the nasty gun 😀

    Can only presume it’s more to do with it being oiled? But then why would it be so oily that you need barrier cream just to use it?

    I fear these questions will only be answered by more questions so will stop here.

    Getting the Aga cleaned. Post-it sales must be booming. 8)
