    Gutting to lose a bike. New door looks nice and beefy! 👌😊

    3×2 treated framework and 4×1 panelling and bracing. Plus lots of stainless screws, lots and lots of screws.

    Fed up with squirrels destroying cheap bird feeders so decided to make my own.

    Mesh is 1.2mm stainless so hopefully too tough for the squirrels. Other bits are aluminium so none of it will rust.

    I needed a pair of bleeding blocks for a Magura MT7 brake today so made them out of some pine which happened to be very close to the right thickness. Cut it into a pair of wedges, so they won’t fall straight through. Needed to sand the face of each to get them to fit, then sanded a leading chamfer on both faces of each block and then lightly sanded all the sharp edges off. Worked a treat, was tempted to photograph them but can’t be bothered now.

    Our local fruit farmer gave me three plums (Marjorie’s Seeders) and before gobbing them I took a few  pics meaning to try a still-life study with oils on aluminium

    Finally getting it together.   The cost of decent tubes of oil paint gave me the vapours though 😲

    That squirrel-proof birdfeeder is magnificent.  If it works then please get it to market!

    Nice that Malvern, really got the skin tones/texture of yer plumbs there.

    After Inktober, I got the taste for doing some art again, stopped back in the 80s, which was a bit of a waste. Waiting for some pens to turn up, in the meantime trying out some different shading techniques.

    I made bagels.

    They look and taste like bagels.

    I’ve given up with posting photos.

    Today I handed a new art portfolio to a potential client and they looked a bit sceptical so I did a cutout and comp in Fauxtoshop. Nothing too astounding to me from a commercial studio / newspaper background, it took under 15 minutes including finding stock images.
    They said their in house guys would have taken an hour or two to do it. So there you go, its not up there with illustration – I can’t do the drawing thing and am most envious – but at least it makes money.

    The last ‘proper’ thing I made would have been a radio control glider fit out.
    Double carbon skin and easily good for over 200mph when loaded with ballast.

    Made a cross cut jig for my circular saw. Very pleased with it as it works perfectly.
    I then made a Christmas tree out of old pallet wood. I like it. The girlfriend likes it. Win for me.

    I’m not posting any pictures as the standard of the stuff on here is far too high!

    eddiebaby – those gliders look soooo easy to crash and destroy. Is it as hard to fly as it looks?

    Premier Icon eddiebaby
    Subscriber

    Yes. At that level very much so. At my level less so. Mark you when a bad crash can cost you £2.5k for the airframe and £750 for fit out and maybe £400 for tungsten ballastto replace the brass, then you tend to work your way up to it.
    And you get very good at fixing composites.

    Not sure this is what my wife meant when she said I could get out of visiting the in-laws for a week if I decorated Daughter Mk1’s bedroom.

    When she gets home tomorrow she’ll either be happy or I’ll be in the shit again. 🙂

    Not as good as that Calvin and Hobbes, but my daughter requested pink clouds in her room , so I did this…. (though having seen the above, I might have to add a tree in the corner)

    Nice idea Retrodirect. I bet you’ll see it in direct summer sunlight. Does your hand gripping it do it?

    @retrodirect, how Dow describe that to the police if it gets pinched? Looks ace.

    Hand gripping it doesn’t do it, it’s also not been fitted to a bike yet so not had a chance to check outside. Seller of the paint thinks it will change on a warm day. 🙂

    Blimey – that’s an interesting paint job on that frame. I’ve not seen a split frame like that before!

    My daughter kept whacking her fingers on door frames while riding her balance bike in the house. She also had a couple of close calls outside with lamp posts etc.
    She can ride OK but tends to get distracted, look around & then veer off course.

    So – I designed & 3-D printed her some moto-x style hand guards. Probably gone overboard with piccies. The first iteration was just to check for fit & see how best to lay the print out for support removal etc. I only did one of these.

    Then she wanted purple, so I got her some translucent purple & made the guards slightly bigger as she was having trouble getting her gloves into the gap. They are now fitted & she’s well pleased – although after buying the purple, her favourite colour changed from purple to orange….I ignored this….
    I’ve got some nice domed nuts that I need to swap the standard nuts for, but I need to dremel the screws to size before I can fit them…

    The handguards are cool!

    I made a shoe rack. I should probably take a photo of it at some point, but it’s not even close to comparing to some of the amazingness on here!

    Finally started to do some basic wood construction…

    Limited by a hand mitre saw (in a frame), hand drill and basic electric sander (couldn’t get in the corners). However well received. Really simple to make utilising LED lights from ebay, printed words, laid out holes and then drilled through (making sure I got the right diameter bits). Poor mitre work meant nothing lined up perfectly but will get myself better (electric) mitre saw for the future.

    Cool handguards. Looks like Sam Hill’s bike. 🙂

    Liking the LED signs too. I bet they love them.

    The only thing I’ve made recently is a little hedgehog sleeping ‘box’, or rather more like dome. It’s an old plastic planter which the base had broken off, so I cut a door in one side, put some rabbit hay inside and sat it on a piece of shed roofing felt.
    Then waited to see if the hedgehog would take advantage of it; they apparently move around sleeping places, so no guarantee. Anyway, it seems to have rather taken to it, and uses it every day, which is nice. I can tell, because it drags dry leaves back into the entrance every time it goes in.
    Cheap, cheerful and effective. I’ve just thought, while writing this, I ought to put a little ‘Home Sweet Home’ sign on the front…

    ^^^ that hedgehog house is really cool and great that you have a resident hedgehog!

    We had one that i got given as a present, which never attracted any hedgehogs & after not very long my clumsy father in law managed to stand on it while doing some gardening & broke it. I keep meaning to replace it.

    Knocked up a bar for the summer house. Sum total of 0 quid as all stuff was liberated from work. Old pallets and galv angle just knocking about and a couple of cheeky scaff boards.
