Took this weekend off work to go visit family, but plans changed so now I’m building myself a new desk.
Welcome to Open Thread Friday. This is my first time posting/hosting so be kind to me :) And I hope that title passes muster.
DIY — Sometimes we avoid such projects because we think we don’t have the skills or the creative talent to fix or improve our home. But that’s all about to change.
So you live in a state or other area where marijuana is a legal recreational drug or are a patient or caregiver in a place where medical is allowed? Just like many other things in your life, you think why pay someone else (a dispensary) when you can DIY... Think this over, because
growing weed is hard
Designed to soak up makeup remover, a flat cotton pad is also fabulous for soaking up things like rust and limescale remover. So pad + binder clip = terminal soaker:
Total cost was roughly $50 and a lot of man hours, though that could be cut down considerably with some half decent carpentry skills. I sort of followed DIY Pete’s Plans laid out here, but he’s kind of a tool (pun intended) and is more about the clicks than the info (I’ll get into that later).
At backtalk, the bird trend is never over and for this week, we will cover a few fun projects to make your domicile 100% more whimsical and birdier.
None of this will be as cool as the stuff Garden Marvel has been posting, but I thought we could start a master list of household hacks that you have tried - just post them in the comments, and I’ll add them up here.

Hello again Varlings, I've had a lot of requests to do a quick tutorial on how to make full-face silicone pieces.
Hi varlings, this is my very first cosplay/craft DIY post, so I thought I should post something I get asked about a lot.
This Valentine's Day, make your favourite bike fiend a keyring charm that reflects their sophisticated cyclist sensibilities.
A local hackerspace (or makerspace) offers access to shared equipment, classes, group projects, and the chance to meet other makers. We'd like to hear about what's going on in your community.
If you live in an old house or apartment, you might have found walls that are not the standard 1/2" or 3/4" drywall. Before the 1950s, it seems that lath and plaster walls were the norm. That's all well and good, but using a traditional stud finder will get you nowhere since the whole wall has a thin layer of wood…
I was trying to fix my headphones using some loctite (pictures below) and skimped out on safety measures like gloves or q-tips, and wasn't paying much attention when the glue spilled everywhere (header image).
I am generally not the artsy/craftsy goddess like so many of you are here (lookin' at YOU, BerkRie!). But I have about 300+ things on my DIY board on Pinterest and all of the walls in my 2 story town home are butt nekkid. I'm not kidding, we don't even have pictures up. I have one of those collage type frames in my…
In things you never knew you wanted (or useful Halloween accessories):
Black-hat hackers, script kiddies, camfecters, and malicious programmers. Those aren't non-sense words, they are each a particular type of internet derelict who aspire every day to invade your privacy. And there aren't just a few, there are thousands of these people scouring your home computers, your work networks,…
An enterprising Hacker News user has built a Raspberry Pi server that's entirely run on solar power, along with instructions on how you can, too.
Most people have to keep track of at least a few keys. The easiest way to do that is to just keep them all on one key ring. But the more keys you have, the bulkier the ring is to carry in your pocket. Here's an alternate design for holding and organizing your keys that's a little more efficient. The design is very…
