DIY How to make Rustic Planters

Hey my internet friends, it's Mika! ok there were primarily a couple of reasons for this week's tutorial 1 cycling reusing and repurposing items is always a plus! 2 rustic and industrial decor is definitely huge right now and c'mon who doesn't love it! and 3 I needed to find ways to use popsicle sticks, 'cause.I have so many left. so let's begin then. Start with a plastic container, this one's from a Chinese takeout using an exacto knife or scissors I'm cutting the top edge so I have a smooth surface to work with.

Before we continue we're going to cut three holes at the bottom so the water gets drained well you also have the option to add a layer of rocks instead of cutting holes moving on to decorating it, measure how long you want the popsicle sticks to be make a mark and cut them out allow a couple of minutes for the glue gun to heat up and glue them on keep in mind, hot glue doesn't do well with water so you might need to apply super glue on some spots to make it more secure.

I also added a few thinner pieces among the cracks go ahead and paint the sticks to give the planter its rustic look and nowit's time to put in our plant! yayyy add a layer of dirt or soil make a paddle and transfer in you oxygen making item! fill it up with some more dirt and for some English country charm I put it on a vintage plate and to top it off a small bow with some twine and our little planter is complete! what kind of green pla would you choose to plant I chose the cactus because I know I'm.

DIY Vertical Succulent Garden

This artful display of gorgeous greens could reframe your whole perspective on gardening The hanging 'frame' is a pretty basic build consisting of a box that holds the dirt.and then the frame pieces. Start by buiding the box.then assemble the frame using brackets to join the pieces. Attach the box to the frame, again with brackets. Insert a piece of hardware cloth, and then finish off the back of the box with a piece of acrylic. Now you're ready to plant. Fill the frame with a potting mix meant for.

Succulents. You can buy it, or you can make your own.using some potting soil, perlite and plain old playground sand. It's a really dry mix that drains well, because succulents don't like sitting in water. Fill the frame until the wire fabric cloth is just covered, then sprinkle a little water and let the whole thing sit for about 15 minutes. The soil will compact and settle a bit, and then you can top it off with another layer of soil, and a little more water. The water helps the mix hold together a little more for planting purposes.

Now you can lay out your succulents and remember, they will grow and spread out some, so don't overcrowd the space. Once you've got an arrangement you like, trace around the plants with a permanent marker, then carefully using a pair of tinsnips cut thru the wire fabric, kind of bending back the pieces to create a hole just large enough to get the rootball thru. You don't want to cut away too much of the mesh so leave at least a couple of columns around the perimeter, and in between your plants.

Waterproof Wood

Let's do the waterproofing test now first, on the left is Cypress it is nonprocessed Cypress and then, on the middle is nonprocessed Chinese fir the last one, on the right side is Cypress processed with liquid glass we will pour water on these woods to testify the waterproofing ability let's begin from the left Cypress then on Chinese fir and now its turn for the processed Cypress Crystal wood the one processed with liquid glass coating shows prominent waterproof ability due to low permeability water drops will flow down together.

Now, let's look at the crosssection here we can see the crosssection the left one is totally permeated by water the Chinese fir on the middle, is not that serious as the left one but there is also water penetration on its interior as for the one processed with liquid glass it is not penetrated by water then, let's wipe out the surface though it's not so clear in the tutorial, but we can see on the surface of Cypress, Chinese fir which haven't been applied with liquid glass the water stains exist after wiping.

DIY Sandbox Saver No Cat Dog Droppings

If you want to keep the cats out of the kid's sandbox Here's 1 way to do it. Let me show you the closeup on it. This is just 1x2 inch screwed together at the ends. And stapled some chicken wire over it. It would be better if I had a cross member in the center of it, maybe 2. You got to keep people from walking on it. If the cat can't reach through and scratch the ground then it's not interested in leaving the mess there. That's all it takes. A cover to put over the sandbox.

Monkeys Fist Heaving Line How To Tie This Useful Knot

Alright today on Repairs101 Im going to show you how to tie a Monkeys Fist which is a fairly easy knot to tie that you can use for anything from a heaving line to a toy for your cat or dog to chase. Before getting started I suggest you get your hands on an awl or a marlinspike or a small screwdriver anyway. Select your rope and prepare the ends. You can tie this knot with laid rope or braid rope. Start by taking three wraps around two fingers held apart like a peace sign. Then turn inward around one side of the wraps for a change.

Of direction and take three more wraps perpendicular to the first three. Then another turn and another change of direction will get you set up to weave in the last three wraps. This time Ive tied a longish tail on it that you could tie or braid to the other end. I like to tie a half hitch into it and work it underneath and make it the core of the Monkeys Fist. Especially if its going to be a cat toy that gets thrown around indoors. Then you just want to work the slack out of it as best you can until you can pull the.

Slack out of it at the tail. This ones polypropylene rope so it should float. Handy if you need to get a line to someone on a dock or another boat. If youre hanging a food cache your heaving lines going to need a heavy steel threequarter inch ball bearing. Once youve got whatever core youre going to use inside you want to meticulously pull out all the slack from the short end to the standing line. Anything other than a knot core will make it difficult to tuck the tail in and will.

How to build a DOCK BOX

Those of us who spend a lot of time at the dock know how much stuff can accumulate down here over the course of the day you know what I hate picking up after my dock side guests time and time again besides where am I going to put this wet stuff well today we're gonna work on a storage solution called a dock box to solve this problem found these plans for a dock storage box in Canadian home workshop magazine it's a pretty straightforward project I've got a couple of scraps of three quarter inch ply.

That we're going to use for the ends First we're going to rip them to width and then we're going to basket bottom profile plans call for a centre eight inches from the top of the basket and we want a six inch radius or other words half the basket width Clamp these together and cut them out with my jigsaw I'm going to give them a quick sanding just to tidy them up So, here we are we got a couple finished slats.these come out of five quarters by six cedar.

Really don't have to but it looks a lot better if you do some treatment to the edge alright ready for assembly I got my basket ends and my basket is upside down obviously We've got the basket finished time to do the legs plans call for two and a quarter by two and a quarter legs So, I'm going to have to rip this four by four cedar to that dimension So, I need four at seventeen These are going to be positioned like this.at both ends Here we go! Done and done!.

Now we're on to the lid! I'm gonna glue five together, good quality outdoor wood glue notice that bead dead centre that's because I know what I'm doing I'm a trained professional I've left these long because I'll cut it to length after it dries Now the worst part of this of course is that you have to wait for the glue to set.and that's going to take the good part of an hour so What am I going to do in the meantime Alright glue is set I'm just going to take the mark clamps off.

Plans call for the lid to be seventy inches in length So I'll cross cut that to length We've prompted to use these nice decorative tee hinges and most importantly They're super easy to put on could be a little overkill but I'm gonna use number nine three inch deck screws Now the plans don't call for it but you can see I added a chain stay to prevent the kids or my soninlaw from ripping the hinges out Let's get this thing down to the dock Well this dockside box sure is a big improvement.


This is very very important stirling engine and this one has been designed by subir bhaduri. you can see there is a little wooden stand, and these are the various parts of the stirling engine. this is the box stand on which this engine will be mounted. you can see a vertical screw and on this screw you screw in the nut on which there is a heat sink. this heat sink has got a central bore. right side is where you will put in the lamp. and then you take.

The flywheel and crank rod and you screw it in the heat sink. this is the crank part. then you take a connecting rod and screw it to the crank and you just let it hang around. then you take the long piston and there is a small displacer which is made from mseal. you put this long tube in the bore of the heat sink. then lift the crank rod and put it in the displacer. we need another crank. there is another crank which is phased out at 90 degrees and now you connect the crank rod to the long tube. finally you take the.

Flywheel and tighten the screw of the flywheel to the axle so it is solidly connected to it. now the stirling engine is almost assembled. you have got to ensure that the displacer and the piston rotate smoothly. you need to oil them. finally take a spirit lamp and heat the right rod. red part is actually ceramic to insulate. then you kick start the flywheel and you will be surprised that this engine keeps rotating. it will keep rotating till the fuel lasts. its a heat engine and quite a beauty to behold. you can see the con rods,.


In this model of the multiple generator is quiet easy to make. it requires several strong magnets, insulated copper wire, and lots of odd materials. first take a square lock of wood and stick an old CD at its center. then take another CD and apply glue at 4 points at 90 degrees. stick very strong disc neodymium magnets at this 4 points. then take an old film can bottle and wind 500 times of very thin insulated copper wire. remove the coil, anchor it together so that you have just two ends protruding out. scrape the insulation.

Out of both the ends of this copper wire enamel. attach them to an LED. LED draws very little current. now this is the coil and the LED assembly. now apply glue at five points on the base Cd and take five coil and LED assemblies and stick them on to the base CD. now this is the coil and LED. in the middle apply some glue and a sewing machine bobbin. this will act like a fat washer. now take the old CD, one with the magnets, invert it, apply some.

Glue and stick a toothpaste tube lid to it. there is a hole in this tooth paste tube lid. on the base on the magnet side stick a washer in the center. this washer is slightly bigger so that it goes into the nut. you can spin this very freely. now on this CD stick a color disc. this is like a Newton's color disc. as you spin this CD, you can see all the 7 colors coalesce, and you can see greyish white. also when these strong magnets spin, they.


Dancing washers is a very unusual experiment. you need a very long threaded rod, just like a very large screw, and washers. now first take this long screw and fix it on a wooden base. and then you take slightly loose washers, their internal diameter should be slightly more than that of screw. place a washer and it comes dancing down. you can also try this experiment with more washers. instead of using one washer, try putting three washers. the washers will rotate and come tumbling down making a very nice musical sound.
