A DIY clone of the Little Green Egg. I'm so totally making one of these.
Wow, major WANTage here. I bought a ScanSnap about a year ago, and it's been worth its weight in gold: having all my paper documents available on my laptop available for searching is invaluable. It'd be simply amazing to be able to do a similar thing with all my books.
“Hackers across the country are buying up old old receipt printers and imaginatively repurposing them into something new. We call them microprinters.”
Nice idea for a super cheap flash slave.
An introduction to soldering EL wire (which for some strange reason these guys like to call “cool neon”).
Sells all sorts of outdoorsy fabrics for DIY gear. Nifty.
Some nice (and nicely-priced) combo cables. The Cat5e/RG6/Fiber drop is awesome — wish I had a reason to use it.
A great writeup of a DIY home wiring project. I think my house is quite a bit smaller than the author's, but the same principles should apply.
I've got to make me one of these — I drink *way* too much seltzer.
Sounds like a great and super-cheap way to roll your own security system.
A DIY multitouch screen. Awesome.
Chris' guide to coffee roasting. Must try…
Since moving to the country a year ago my weekends and evenings have turned into project time. I’m a cheapskate, so I’ve been buying and repairing lots of used tools and making a lot of my own parts. This means I’m constantly looking for some random specific bolt, or a piece of plastic some particular size, or something similarly specific and esoteric. So I starting maintaining a list of the places I go to when I need supplies. It’s really for my own reference, but I figured it might prove useful to someone, so why not put it online?
