    For the folks building with pallets.



    I built a similar one and they work pretty well. A great source of handy wood for not real critical projects.

    That was cool, SUBMOA. Think I might weld one up. We get some good, stout stuff pallet-wise at work.

  4. I've got to show this to the welder up the street and see if he can make one for me. That's a lot easier on the back!

    You still need a good sized crow bar for pulling nails . Those that break off flush or below don't worry about. Those that break sticking out break off flush or pound down.
     
  6. True. But that I can do sitting down for the most part ;)

    His pallets, the nails were mostly coming with the small cross boards. Mine usually stays put and pulls the head through the cross board . Sometimes busts the board all to pieces but move on. You win some and some you don't.

    Its kind of a crappy pic, but we made an accent wall in our living room with stick on vinyl flooring (and added a little flooring glue cuz the self stick wasnt workin after the first day and i had to redo the bottom couple feet haha) but it was avout $80 for a 18' wide wall and makes a big difference 20170624_102513.jpg

    I am pretty much out of diy stuff now except for like cooking stuff but i feel like that doesnt really count and or belongs in another thread. I am gonna build a head board in the next weekend or so, and take a crack at a floating shelf. Never done one before but thats what youtube is for right?

    So I will be adding a project to this as I noticed in my adhoc gaming room instead of just 1 corner desk I have 2 desks and a dresser and entertainment center so I will be absolving that issue in the next few days. It will have to hold up a couple T.Vs as well as computer, Xbox One, 2x Xbox 360s, PS4, PS3 and probably a few odds and ends.

  17. Finishing up a British uniform coat today. I'll post some pictures when it's done. Right now it's in 3 pieces...the body and 2 sleeves so it's not worth looking at.

    Once that's done it's time to fire up the serger and work on haversacks and backpack blanks. After I've finished off all the edges it'll be time to put them together. I've got 12 haversacks cut and 12 backpack blanks.

    If you're wondering about "backpack blanks", they're the base canvas part of a military backpack. Each unit and regiment has their own specs for the color of the leather shoulder straps, etc. By doing the basic blank the rest is built off of, I can sell more than if I did unit specific and took my chances.

    Had some scrap kydex and decided to try and make a "claw" and see how it goes. (if u are thinking that my holster has less definition now you are correct; i wasnt happy with the bump for thw clip screws so i reheated the whole thing, and now basically the bump is great and im unhappy wuth the rest haha. This is the best that came of the whole situation after like an hour or so)

    Ive never used a claw before so im bot sure what to expect

    Ive got some kind of issue, possibly with the wastegate; cant build boost but to have the tune well enough to drive around pretty ok
