- What is the last thing you made? (pics pls)
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!

A pair of monitor stands for the attic studio.Posted 3 years ago
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.
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.Posted 3 years agojairajSubscriber

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?Posted 3 years agoebygommMember

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’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.
