This project is cool. It’s just cool. It’s also involved. Very involved. The results speak for themselves, however. Member TomBuilder at HomemadeTool.net built this pneumatic-powered scissor lift table right in his garage. He even dug out a section of the concrete and installed the table in the ground so it sat flush with the floor […]
Before we even get into this one, we do NOT condone the copying and selling of another artists work. This project is for fun, not a way to illegally copy music. It seems like vinyl, despite being older than cassette tapes and CDs, is the one physical music storage system that will never go out […]
It’s almost that time of year. The best time of year. Halloween! Even if you aren’t a Brooklyn Nine-Nine fan, Halloween is still the best holiday. It allows for a lot more creativity when decorating than some other holidays (looking at you, Christmas… all those houses look the same!). Just like last week we’re bringing […]
It’s almost time for everyone’s favorite holiday. No, not Christmas. I’m talking about Halloween! The one day of the year that it’s socially acceptable to dress in ridiculous costumes and collect exorbitant amounts of candy from strangers. The only thing more fun than going out on Halloween is decorating for it. Whether you like to […]
Have you been thinking about upgrading your man cave? There are so many options out there that it can be hard to decide what you want to do. Instructables user Lance70 turned his old man cave into a flashy new sci-fi space station using only plexi glass, medium-density fiberglass panels, framing wood, and some LED […]
Headphone jack. 3.5 mm. Aux port. It has many names, but serves one very important purpose. It delivers audio from our devices to our ears. If you frequently use your headphones from your computer, as a gamer or editor for example, your audio jack may not always be in the best spot. Maybe it’s at […]
So, you’re a guitarist right? That probably means you have at least a couple of effects pedals. Sure it’s simple enough to pack and unpack, plug and unplug each time you use them, but wouldn’t it be great if you just didn’t have to? That’s where a pedalboard comes in! If you aren’t familiar with […]
First off, no that is NOT what we are growing here (yet)! Hydroponics is a plant-growing method that eschews soil for nutrient-filled water. The water can be infused with artificial fertilizers, or it can be a natural miniature ecosystem where fish thrive off the roots and vice-versa. Lettuce, tomatoes, peppers and cucumbers can be relatively […]
Not everyone has a massive shop to work in. It’s likely that, if you’re reading this, you probably have a bit of a space problem. Don’t we all! Whether we have to share our space with another person or a whole bunch of “we’ll get to it someday” storage items, we could all benefit from […]
It’s easy for your workbench to get cluttered with miscellaneous bits like nails, screws, electrical connectors and fasteners but these inexpensive pull-out muffin trays are the perfect solution to keeping them out-of-sight yet right at your fingertips. The Family Handyman advises using heavy gauge muffin tins that won’t bend when full. Attach them to the […]
