What have you made out of pallets?

I came across some pallets and will probably make a couple stools and a table. But I'm looking for inspiration for other projects as well.

Hi, I'm a weldor. I work in the steel industry located in America. In short, I fabricate the steel members required to build buildings, and then erect them. I wouldn't mind providing insight into my work, from the processes used to fabricate the steel to welding tips, ask away. I'll post some pics I took for content. This one is MIG welding a hand railing.

I'm pretty much convinced that I need to buy a 3d printer.

Before I get into this hobby, how much can I realistically expect to spend? I've been eyeballing that monoprice printer for $350 but I'm afraid that after I buy that I will realize that I just need to spend more on another printer for reasons.

>>949936
If it shifts there should be gaps on the other side. Are you sure it's not over-extruding or not being cooled quickly enough?

I don't really know where to put this thread so I decided this is the best board for it.
My girlfriend bought a new apartment and now she wants to put heating in it. She has no gas or central heating available. By my estimate there are only two viable options : AC + 2 electric radiators or 2 ACs and one electric radiator. She has a 70m^2 apt with 3 rooms. Any more ideas or suggestions ?

I dont speak communism, so i dont understand the size of the apartment, but you could try a multi head minisplit, which is actually a good solution to a 3 bd apt
>>
>>961890
>I don't speak communism
I chuckled.

70m^2 is equivalent to approximately 750 ft2. Which is pretty damned small, so yeah, maybe it's communism after all.

Incidentally, I have one AC and one electric heater in my 1400 ft2 office, so I don't see what the choice is, unless by "AC" you don't mean "air conditioner".
>>
>>961890
Well I'm not gonna argue about the metric system. Can you elaborate on that multi head minisplit ?
>>961899
70m^2 is actually a medium sized apt in Europe.
I do mean air conditioner. I am not familiar with American terminology.

It's a lovely hobby but doesn't have a lot of practical use. In a survival situation you'd be better off suited with basic survival knowledge rather than knowing how to make a stone hatched. Hut building might come in handy in a long term situation, but if you're in for the long run you'd be long past mud huts.
As I said, it's a lovely hobby.
>>
>>952822
In a survival situation you are better off knowing everything. You can turn a survival situation into a thriving situation a lot easier. Basic survival knowledge is easy and doesn't take very long to master.

But, taking a week out of a year to train for survival in anything from primitive technology to medical aid is never wasted and shouldn't be considered a hobby. However, spending a greater portion of your pastime doing these things would be considered a hobby.
>>

A week is a long time. I love going "survival camping" where legal to do so, bringing nothing but my clothes and a map/compass. Shits fun as fuck, but it isn't a super practical skill unless you regularly spend time way past the edges of civilization. If you know what you are doing, and you tell people where you are going, making yourself get found in a few days isn't difficult at all

So there's a recipe out there to make your own water based lube:

1 Part Xanthan Gum
6 Parts Vegetable
18 parts Water

It's pretty decent, I made a batch myself using 1/2 a teaspoon of Xanthan Gum in this little bottle. I did tweak the recipe a bit by adding more water because it was originally on the sticky side, unfortunately I didn't measure how much more I added. Has any body else done this? What changes did you make?
