    New Workbench. To replace the current ‘workbench’.
    Used:
    Lots of timber from a pagoda taken down when we built the extension a year ago, used to form horizontal bracing
    Builder left two 150x150mm fence posts which were cut to make the four legs
    Old chest of drawers
    Bought new: 3 x sleepers (200x100mm) cut to 2m long £30 each
    Bought new: 225mm and 175mm timber lock screws to hold it all together £30
    Bought off ebay: STW approved, British made Record vice £35

    Its not pretty but will last me out, all I have to do is sort and clear the rest of the garage now.
    Crappy old ‘workbench’ and pile of raw materials

    New bench and vice! A bit more tidying to do

    Most of my tools are in big red halfords cabinet

    I had some nice plywood left over from converting my van so I made a tool chest for all my biking tools. I’m pretty happy with it, I love the smooth action of the drawer sliders and the magnets on the lid are useful.

    ooh nice!
    Yes, I’ve been using those bearing drawer runners for a few projects too. Even cheap chinese ones have been smooth for me.
    Excellent job!

    3d prints of this classic Bauhaus chess set. As far as I know you can’t buy a replica. Quite a clever design removing the religious aspects and replacing with shapes mimicking the movement of the pieces.

    Bauhaus Chess Set (Model XVI), author: Josef Hartwig, 1924

    Modelled in Maya and then exported via 3dsmax to a STL file.
    It took a while to print but happy with the result.

    This is what it would have looked like originally in 1924.

    Looks great Iain. Are you in the 3D print thread?
    I’d like to know more about this .

    Nice photography too. The lighting on the black set is particularly nice.

    Thanks Alex. I will have a look at the 3d print thread.
    I will need to look into kits myself as I am changing jobs and will loose my access to a 3d printer.

    nickkent’s tool box ^^ should be in the ‘arrgh my eye’ thread. I’ll post something when I’ve learnt to post pictures, and also when I’ve made more than just a mess.

    and also when I’ve made more than just a mess.

    Same. At the moment I’m too busy clearing all the half finished jobs from the last 3 or so years (seriously) but once I have a router…

    That tool box is nice, I like it. How did you make it?

    Been messing about on a laser cutter wotsit at work and have made a few bauble type thingies for friends and family. Google image search, made into vectors in 2D design, cropped, clipped etc…text and shizzle.

    After all, nothing says Happy Christmas quite like a candy skull 😀

    I started a separate thread a while back but then photobucket did that thing and it’s pretty much pointless now.

    Anyhow I’ve just about finished my daughter’s balance bike, just the head tube badge to bond on.

    I got a donor bike for the wheels, grips and saddle. Shortened some old P2 forks and built my first frame.

    Little miss breadcrumb is still a little small for it but I confirm it handles nicely around the kitchen!

    breadcrumb – congrats on your first frame build! Looks absolutely superb. One very lucky young lady.

    What is the bar stem combo you’ve used? I’m building one of those tiny demo DMR frames that where on eBay a few months ago, and reach is a problem for little people. They look ideal? If off the shelf.

    Premier Icon breadcrumb
    Subscriber

    Thanks Alex, I’ve wanted to build a frame for years seems fitting that my first frame is my daughter’s first bike.

    Oldschool- it’s not off the shelf unfortunately. It’s a set of old bars shortened and scalloped to fit an old DMR seat clamp and welded together. I got lucky with the clamp as it was just kicking about the spares box.

    Edit: photo of bars/stem, needs a polish 😳

    Nice table Oli!
    Is the resin flush with the yew? Was it difficult to do?

    Here’s the pic from your link:

    Thanks for that Alex!

    Yea the resin is flush (except in the long thin closest patch bottom left, but I’ll top that up.)

    I originally planned to make it with some beech, but it wasn’t as dry as I was led to believe and warped when stored in the house for a while.
    So got the Yew instead.
    Would opt for something with less holes next time, I covered the underside of those gaps with tightly layered tape to stop it leaking anywhere. And had to build a large box to contain the piece.

    There are a few more pics on my Flickr of it in construction.
    Also the resin I used took around 48hours to cure. So now I’ve had go I would happily opt for something a bit quicker setting. Especially when the main centre took two pours to fill and set. So a chunk of waiting time!

    I also opted to keep the wood exposed and not just encase the whole thing in resin. As I think it’s nice to have the contrast in material and feel.

    Built 6 weeks back. I’ve been needing to carry heavy workshop stuff; metal, tooling and the likes but I don’t own a car. A fullblown cargo bike is overkill however.

    so…

    I was admiring this omnium and decided to make my own version.

    Built from scrap metal leftover from my adventures in learning TIG.

    I present to you, the Cargoturd!

    It may be ugly but it works so well that I’ve ordered a bunch of tubing to build a fancy version.

    There’s a sleeved and welded steerer extension in there, extended headtube and an enormous rack. Fag paper calcs say it’ll yield at a 100kg pointload right on the end so reasonably overbuilt yet is surprisingly light – a lot of the tubing is fairly thin walled.

    Looks amazing. Anyone who can build a bike is an absolute hero in my book.
    Will the fancier version be more similar to the omnium (i.e the downtube?)

    this is a slight hijack as ive not made it yet but wanted some practical advice from you genii…

    my mrs has been bugging me for one of them suspended clothes airers, pulleymaids.

    i have decided to make one out of a pair of old skis. i have the skis, the pulleys and the rope

    i am just looking for suggestions on how best to bridge the two skis together? i can easily use a piece of timber bolted to the skis at each end but wondering what else i could do…

    Why not cut down some ski poles instead for the cross-members – either in pairs and sandwich the skis/rails in between, or with the board bolted down onto a single pole? That said, if you used poles for the rails and lengths of ski for the cross-members, you’ll probably find you can hang more laundry on it…

That said, if you used poles for the rails and lengths of ski for the cross-members (holes drilled to pass the poles through would look/work well and remove the need for bolt/screws), you’ll probably find you can hang more laundry on it…

    Love that lettering on the trail tool, Kayak. How did you do that?
