- 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 1 month 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 1 week 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. 😄

Getting the workshop a bit more sorted today. It's not a massive workshop so I built a portable mitre station for the mighty Bosch! #mitre #mitresaw #mitresawstation #workshop #bosch #boschtools #boschprofessional #furnituremaking #cabinetmaking #woodworking #wood #woodworkingskills #woodwork #mdf #homemade #blackteaonesugar #chopsaw #machinery
