- What is the last thing you made? (pics pls)
I am fairly rubbish at making stuff, it usually ends up looking a bit shonky. However, I am quite pleased with this for an afternoon’s work.
Mrs Mellie saw something similar on Pinterest. Three IKEA Billy bookcases re-purposed into storage for our third bedroom, which is now a dressing room (ooh, get us!) Batons at the top screwed into the very thin plasterboard to spread the load, then brackets screwed into bookcase and baton. Hanging rails from B&Q between each. A lot cheaper than buying wardrobes, and less ‘looming’ into the space. Needs a bit of finishing off.
(Love the garden projects bear).

Wanted a new framebag to fit the fatbike and as nothing off the shelf fit and I don’t have custom money to spend I thought I’d have a crack. Also, who wants black/olive when you can have fluro orange and purple?
Material is 6oz PU coated polyester, zip is a double ended ykk plastic one, ordered the double ended version but it was the wrong way around so I swapped them round so it opens in the middle, 25mm webbing (x2 on top for the twin top tubes) and some Velcro onewrap (30mm and 50mm) to attach to the frame.
Fits a carefully packed gellert solo tent without too much bulging.
Stuff that worked well:
I massively over engineered putting the zip in, there are garages at each end and a storm flap over those, took longer than the rest of the bag!
Stuff that didn’t work so well:
There was a mk1 that didn’t quite work out and had a tapered top panel to fit the frame, I made this one 3″ all round. It would have been better tapered as the tube splay apart to 85mm so the current taper in the webbing from 2 to 3″ doest quite reach.
Onewrap gives two options, either rub the paint off the frame or the skin off your legs.
Cost £25, £15 of that was onewrap! Next time I’ll just make some straps from webbing and Velcro which would be less abrasive too!Posted 8 months ago

Spent my Saturday at the local hedging and stone walling competition. That is me in the middle making love to my spade! Was a tough day as the wall had to be taken down first before it could be rebuilt! The 2nd pic is the final result. Took first prize in the novice category as well as best local so, all in all, a good days work 🙂

Drove by the sign for the competition the other day welshfarmer, was tempted to call by and have a nose.
Been busy on the latest caravan/tiny home build:

9 months on and I haven’t made much progress with the 3D printed Root 3 CNC dueto buying a van to convert into a camper, but at least it’s assembled and wired – just need to add the Arduino now!
I’ve put holes in the base so it can hang up on the shed wall.
It’s also got some bolts that fix it to insert nuts in the workbench.Posted 7 months agobelugabobMember

Built myself a portable mitre saw station for my beast of a Bosch chop saw. Good job it’s got braked castors as there’s a bit of whiplash when she fires up. 😄Posted 7 months ago
Fab skills getting better. I need to get some washers underneath those bolt-heads. Shaped by eye with an angle-grinder.Posted 7 months agosirromjSubscriber
<div class=”moz-text-html” lang=”x-unicode”>Free standing bike rack for 1 x 120mm old geo XC FS, 1 x modern hardtail, and 1 x 24″ trials bike. Keeps the space they take up compact and can remove any one of them without disturbing the others. With front wheel removed they stand on their rear wheels. Supported by handlebars and stem turned 90 degrees. Rear wheels slot either side of middle bike, trials front wheel hangs on back of board.

<div lang=”x-unicode”>Had been intending to build one of these for several months, but never got round to it. To get things going I went out last month and bought some wood just guessing what I needed. Quickly realized there wasn’t enough of it, and it probably wasn’t strong enough to support the full weight of 3 bikes. A delivery left us with a nice pallet which I broke apart and used along with a few other bits and pieces. Revised the concept so bulk of weight supported by rear wheel. Roughly measured lengths and guessed angles hoping it would all work together. Luckily it did. Would be nice if it was a bit studier but it does the job.</div>
Made a little 3-legged dresser table with a single drawer to fit into a bit of an awkward space, above a radiator and below a windowsill.
Birch plywood and Oak.

Kayak, Wrightyson and Bravissimo may want to look away now! 3 Weeks ago I lost a bike to the local scumbags and had to make a new door for the garage. It took a while and much brain ache as I’m not a carpenter (well maybe for packing cases) but this is the replacement door.
