What is the last thing you made? (pics pls)
<span style=”color: #444444; font-size: 12.8px; background-color: #eeeeee;”>i have decided to make one out of a pair of old skis</span>
Make sure the edges are blunt and smooth. But I’d also question how useful the two rails the skis provide will actually be. Traditional pulley maids have at least 4 railsPosted 3 weeks agokayak23Subscriber
I have a friend who runs a community centre and she asked me if I could make her a catapult for the youth club to play life-sized angry birds.
It works well. 🙂

I fillet brazed this frame together about 10 years ago and decided it was time for a repaint. I think I mis-chose the colour though. I’m going to get the kit back out and do it in something I’m happy to be seen in public on. It’s much more salmon in real life. Yuk!Posted 6 days agothisisnotaspoonMember

I’d been hoping at some point to contribute to this thread at some point. So many amazing bits of work & inspiring efforts by people.
I had been wanting to get into woodworking & start making my own stuff. But, it’s just not happened due to time constraints.
Instead, I bought myself a 3D printer & while I haven’t had a great deal of time with it, I have been making some useful stuff – some downloaded designs & some of my own:
Shim for stopping rotary washing drier from wobbling about in the ground pole. I modelled this myself using Pro/E.

Soap dish/tray downloaded from Thingiverse. I’m currently designing my own one that fits better into the space I want to use it in

Paint Pyramids (really tetrahedrons) to lift boards of a work bench when painting. Again, I designed these myself in Pro/E.

Bit of a joint effort this one. I wanted to turn a pocket-sized mints tin into a pocket-sized watercolour sketchbox. So I found a 3D file for the paint pans insert
Mr stevied of this Parish did an amazingly awesome thing and cnc’d me the part out of a solid block of dense black plastic. Turned out a treat.
1. Here it is affixed inside the tin with some blue tack (need to remove and clean/dry periodically so needn’t be perma-fixed)
2. Decided to make a mixing surface/palette for the lid. Found an old broken tupperware thing that was non-recyclable. The white lid was perfect, so drew around the lid and cut to size.
3. Sanded surface to limit pooling of paint when mixing
4. Removed moulding bibble from rear so could Copydex flat inside of tin lid
5. Filled with paint
6. Now lives in pocket (or Camelbak Lobo) for sketching/studies when oot and aboot!
Thanks again Stevied/STW. Job jobbed 👍🏼Posted 1 day ago
