What did you last make? - pics required :)


Recommended Posts

A bit down with all the bad news at the minute, so I am blatantly stealing a thread idea from the STW cycling forum...

Since we are stuck in our houses/sheds/workshops a bit more, what DIY or making things hobby projects have people been up to?

Would be cool to see the interesting stuff people have made, which also includes art/crafty things and nice cakes (although I may get jealous and hungry ?).

Sewing face masks here 😷 50 and counting 😷

Finally finished our hallway

Bored at lunch so I made a very Heath Robinson mock up of an EK43s to test the waters on whether it will fit in the kitchen or if my wife would divorce me over it. Results so far are positive, in

From the autumn so not current, but very useful in the current situation...

Mounting board for a Beastmaker 1000 with two layers of 18mm ply and massive hammer fixings, so I can still keep my climbing strength even if I can’t go outside ?

Extra storage after our loft got boarded out around the same time, made the house clearer and nicer to be in.

I like that shelving a lot, may well do that, got a very similar space in my loft.

@KingoftheHeath Both ended up being a good excuse to get an SDS drill and a cheap circular saw to cut the panels down.

Toolstation did the painted racking shelving the cheapest, Wickes did the cheapest furniture panels and D moulding for the edging. Top tip is if the panels are chipped or blown on the edges normally Wickes will knock 20% off rather than take them back if they aren’t good enough for kitchen units.

@MildredM Are they poo bag holders? If so, it did make my wife and I chuckle a bit.

Yes, they are ? Fund raising for 2 local charities who will lose a huge revenue this spring and summer with being closed.

My homemade brownies. Opinion is divided on the additions - I put pecan, chocolate chunks and cherries in there - but I think they're great. 50152915c6baadb446298869776bf05b.jpg

Great texture on those - nice work! I can take or leave nuts in brownies. I used to put them in, but I now prefer the nice bite that a chunk of chocolate gives.
