So the next project is to build a brick Barbecue. I actually wanted to start on this project about a year ago. I ended up buying 400 bricks off a guy on eBay for £40. It turns out he had had the same idea only his misses had got pissed off with the bricks sitting in their garden. Well, his loss is my gain.Continue reading “Building A Brick BBQ – Part One”
After having a lot of success with the £5 lightbox, I started a new little project. I have been working on a few scale models at the moment that are a little too large to photograph in the lightbox I have. So with a few bits around the house from DIY projects, I began by throwing together a quick frame for a new lightbox.Continue reading “Photographic Lightbox MK2”
So after lifting the laminate floor from the room, we knew that we wanted a wooden floor and the idea was to sand down the floorboards and varnish. Once we had a look at the boards I could see straight away a lot of paint stains, splits and the fireplace hearth. Bit of research into how much boards would cost and what boards to use, this lead me to Scandinavian Larch.Continue reading “Living Room Floor”
She Said Yes!
Another fun packed
A £5 Light Box for Foodies, Ebayers or Crafters
So this one is a project of necessity. So I took a few pictures of the King Tiger but I just wasn’t impressed with the result. Partly down to the camera on my phone and party down to the surroundings. So the way to go is a light box. I don’t have the money to buy one and I don’t have the time for a serious build so here is a cheap, cheap! Lightbox to get these pictures done. Continue reading “Homemade DIY Under £5 Light Box”
If I didn’t have enough to do with the living room I thought why not build a shed. To be fair it is just one of those kits that you stick together. Managed to find this nice little pent shed. As it is for the girlfriend got some pink paint to finish it off.
The Neverending loft refurb. after nearly 8 months and several near nervous breakdowns, the loft is just about complete.
A couple of things still need doing; skirting fitted once the carpet has settled, staircase painted, a new door attached to the storage cupboard and a couple of pieces of trim and filling.
But as Sam is about to start moving things into the room this will be the last chance to get some photos while the room is still empty.
