I recently ordered a guitar with a maple neck that will be arriving soon. I wanted to achieve a "roasted" effect without actually heat-curing the wood, which would require removing frets and everything.
If I wanted to achieve a similar effect by staining the neck, what I would I have to do as far as preparation beforehand? Would I need to do any sanding assuming that the neck doesn't have a glossy finish? And would a stain discolor mother of pear inlays?
>>1007621 If you must do this (and I would strongly urge you to not do this) then I suggest you buy a beater guitar to practice on first, or just buy a cheap maple neck from Ebay and ruin that before you move onto killing the resale value of your new guitar.
I can't go without mentioning once more what a terrible idea I think this is and what an ass you will feel after you destroy your new guitar.
How to check what is taking electricity in my house?
Last months electricity bill showed that I used 1300 kWh in my apartment.
I have a fridge that is medium sized, a small boiler that takes 1.5kW and also a computer and electric oven.
If I calculate say my boiler's usage, I would guess that it probably works 6 hours a day in the worst case scenario. That would be 9kWh per day and 270 per month. The fridge is a bit old and has no energy markings on it expect that it is "class A". But I imagine it should take less than the boiler. Other... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1007494 Will look again over all the cables but so far it does not seem like that. But are there devices in existence that I could use to prove how much I use my self actually? Like putting some device in middle of boiler and socket to see how much it takes.
In a fit of edgelord rebellion against my divorcing parents I took a pair of scissors and inscribed the word "FUCK" on the wall, and now that I've come to my senses, I need to know how to fix the wall before they find out.
>>1007429 Carve "fuck" repeatedly across all walls and when they seem upset just say that's just the pattern of the wallpaper and it has always been that way. Also hang two nooses in their closet so they know that they've been successful parents.
>>1006874 Is the saran wrap covering both the glass and bowl? And the sun would give enough heat? Would it be worth it to line the bowl with something reflective like tin foil/find a bowl that's reflective inside?
Prob more what you need - at $2k for the 13.3" Dev Kit linked, or 5k for a 32", slightly more expensive than the $70 for your original. But $70 is not cheap if it dont work either, it looks like a 4 y.o. limited segment controller only - doubt will do what you want.
Someone who knows this stuff maybe have better idea tho, I dont.
>>1006457 Presumably the cost is in the embedded board + support + software license. $2000 or $5000 for a display, even if it were 80% of the cost, would be excessive and pretty much guarantee that no one will ever do a volume order.
I recently bought a loft with high ceilings and a sloping roof. There is a sprinkler system attached to the roof with a central spine at the highest elevation and three 'legs' that extend both sides of the slope. Along each 'leg' there are three power outlets controlled by a switch panel. By neighbors hang lights and I was looking to do the same.
I was able to hang pendants at the lowest elevation (14.5') but cannot hang anything higher due to height. I was looking to hang string lights along the central... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I've been working on a solution to this very problem. Details are hush hush at this point but until I have it patented I can only release a sketch. I can also tell you the key to it's functionality is pallet wood and a strong shipping container base
I got this fucking hole in my wall that i have to fix for my landlord. I don't know the materials or what's that kind of walls are called so i can't search on the internet. If any of you guys know, i'll be glad to learn.
And you're not going to match that texture (wallpaper?) anyhow. Is this now our weekly /diy/ I fucked up my landlord's property thread or is it just graduation time and every frat idiot is moving out? Geez
Hey /diy/ i have a garden but since i live in southern California i need to conserve water and I end up loosing a lot of water to evaporation. I was thinking of setting up a pergola with wide spaced rafters over the garden to reduce sun exposure allowing the soil to retain more water. Can anyone attest to how well this would work and how it would affect the more sun hungry plants such as my citrus?
So I am about to build a router fence but I don't understand it completely. Can someone please tell me what is the purpose of the slots that pic related it telling me to cut into the face and the sub face? I understand the slot on the side of the base is to attach clamps, but I don't see the point of the other slots so I am guessing I don't completely understand the power of the router fence.
This place I'm looking at has these odd jacks next to every since outlet. I think they're for phone lines. Should I replace the whole gang or just clean it up and leave it? I'd have to patch a new drywall at every box.. The place was built in the early 70s and it's interesting then you could literally plug your phone in anywhere in the house.
