Seems like something for which you can make up your own measurements as long as the dowel-holding slots are cut spaced evenly.

I'm looking to build a dune buggy, go kart or something that's engine based. Is there a website in the EU or UK that's like HobbyKing where I can buy car parts and frames?

Do you want something lifesize or remote controlled?

Lifesize: HAHAHA faggot. Learn to weld and go to the scrapyard for your metal needs. Use a VW Beetle rolling chassis. Many kitcars that go this route.

RC: HobbyKing surely got what you need. Learn to fucking browse their site.

The apartment I'm moving into has old ugly carpet

Is there a thing that exists, where I can lay temporary carpet over the current one?

Does that kind of carpet exist? What's it called? How would it work

Casual DIYer here. Never really posted on /diy/ though, outside of once showing how I broke an axe handle splitting wood more than a year ago. I have a question.

I think that routers sorta meme tier here, right? Well, anyway, I'm in the market for a good router. Anyone have any recommendations? Also need a good router table, but that can be made and doesn't need to be bought.

I have had bad experience with Makita drills and sabre saws, so Makita is out.

Pic unrelated.

Routers come down to this...

Motor rating. REAL RATINGS look at the actual voltage/amprage sticker. For example if the motor says "3HP" on the package but it says 110 volt 8 amps on the sticker. Its not 3hp. 15 amps is about 2hp realistic in most motors like 1.8hp

So judge by the motor. Also the faceplate.. One that has a stamped metal plate at least... Plastic can be good but it won't be on any router that comes with them.

And finally a router isn't meme tier. Its the first real power tool!

1019 KB,
Looking to frame this out as a small home rack closet with components picture, wiring the home with cat 5e. Would it be wiser to put a door, or just frame out the current cubby, and running the cable into the attic?

I think a full door would allow better access to repair, etc.

How would you go about it? Besides the frame out... What would you add besides power, light source, switch for light source, and ventilation fans? What am I missing?

What everyday items have you found improved your life like no other?

I bought a laundry hamper that has a laundry bag liner. So, when I have to do laundry, I can just take the bag out and go.

I mean, optimally, I would just use the laundry hamper to transport my clothes, but the bag is easier to carry.

I recently started getting into Go, and think I now want to build my own board. What would be a good method of doing this, which is a good compromise between cost and aesthetics? I was thinking of laminating wooden planks together, and cutting the amalgamation to size, but I don't have a great deal of carpentry experience (high school woodworking), so I will defer to /diy/'s better judgement.

Well, whatever you do entirely depends on what equipment you have, the kind of effort you want to put in it, and the amount of money you are willing to spend on it, be it materials or tools.

If you are feeling really cheeky and want to recycle some board scrap of the same thickness, you can always use dowels to join them together, plane them flat and finish. While it won't look absolutely amazing, some can argue that it can add "character" to the piece, but I don't mind. If you want something nicer, look for woods that please you - cedar, oak and even...

Hey guys. I just nabbed an old Emerson EWC1303 13" tv/vcr combo from the Salvo. Problem is, there's a noticeable chip in the screen that is just a minor annoyance. I just am wondering if I can actually fix this without replacing the screen or getting a new one. I can't find any information on anything that isn't "fix a flat screen" or the newer LCD shit.

CRT? Then its leaded glass. Leaded glass is softer then normal glass. You might be able to polish it.

It went to Charity. I should've bought the Philips next to it, or at least checked the conditions of each screen. I wanted to buy both, desu. They sell really well.

i like masks, making and wearing. i like making unique masks, i am working on a wooden one that i carved out of a log, i want to do something with hdpe and aluminum. i have worked both but i have never needed to make my own mold, i need something that will work with these, something that can handle the heat of molten metal and maybe be strong enough to not stick to hdpe, hopefully for cheap. Any ideas?

I'm about to be filming a youtube channel in my room but my room is boring as fuck, dead empty, and the background looks too plain. Any suggestions of things to build to fill up my room? I have a cabinet I can use, a poster that I can frame, I just need some more Ideas so I can make it atleast look decent. Any suggestions>

I'm filming about torso level and up. Going to be doing electronics on a table, with my camera focused directly from above on the table, and sometimes directly at me with the wall behind if I need to say something.

TL:DR I'm a child and need the internet to help me make my room cooler

pic not my room but you get the idea

Check out the app called Houzz, you can view other people's remodelled interior spaces from home owner's and professionals. Just search for bedrooms and save the one's you like. Hopefully that helps!

I'm planning a tabletop for a low-rise desk I'm working on and I've been beating myself over the head thinking of ideas.
My first thought was to use a IKEA desk and just attaching short legs to it but those particle boards are just ugly as sin.
I then thought of using the sheets of wood from the hardware store, I needed a piece that's at least 200X40cm, and after asking they've got a nicely sized sheet of carpenter's(?) pine that's $60 and is 1.8cm thick but I'm wondering if it would hold up as a table top, I don't plan to be smashing it with a hammer but I'd keep a PC on it on top of me leaning on it while I write amongst other things so I'm hoping it won't bend. The other option is a $90 (same size but 1.5cm thick) sheet of walnut but that's a bit past budget than I'd like.
So what do you think /diy/? Also I'll start posting progress pics once I'm started if anyone's interested

Dude I built a pretty awesome bed frame for 60 bucks. Your desk idea should cost next to nothing.

Screw some support boards underneath, they don't need to reach the edges either so they'll be hidden there.
How many legs, 4? You could put a 5th one at the middle if it doesn't get in the way.
