Moss Panels Posted by ReadyMade Project by BOA; words by Kiera Coffee; photo by Bryan McCay Some designers invent their collections from one dedicated notion or theme. BOA’s line of eco-conscious beds, storage units, stools, and tables is more the result of a chain of inspired reactions. Brooklyn, New York vintage book travel-tech organizer As you may have figured out from my My Life Scoop posts, I’m a bit of a nut for tech accessories, especially pocket-sized ones. I can’t get over how awesomely small our entertainment devices are becoming; it makes traveling with them so much easier. But one issue I keep running into is how to neatly organize everything, especially the power cords and connector cables that accompany my favorite devices. Rather than spend another plane trip rummaging through my catch-all carry-on bag searching for my headphones, bumping my head on the seat in front of me every time, I decided to make a small tech-accessory organizer using elastic ribbon and an old vintage book cover. This project can be sized up or down and customized in many different ways — the best approach is to gather all the tiny tech things you travel with and see how much there is.

Camilla Engman Folding Table - a new concept - Italian design, compact, wall mounted, fold away, easy open up. table basse - ma petite lili et compagnie J'ai récupéré un panneau de sens interdit qui partait à la poubelle, car il était tout décoloré ( promis je n'ai rien piqué à la DDE). J'ai tout de suite eu envie de faire une table basse avec, pour mon fils de 16 ans (bientôt 17). L'idée plaisait bien à mon ado, donc au boulot ... J'ai découpé des disques dans des restes de contre plaqué, je me suis servi d'un plat et d'une grande assiette comme gabarit, j'ai aussi coupé un ronde de la taille de intérieur du panneau. Monsieur a coupé une poutre de 15/15 bien droit, un morceaux de 50 cm, il a vissé les disques à la poutre, attention il a mit de la graisse sur les vis pour éviter que ça ne les chauffe trop et que ça casse. Un coup de peinture et voilà Admirez la technique pour peindre le pied sans en mettre par terre ,et puis un coup de vernie , Le panneau est juste posé dessus, vu qu'il était tout décoloré, je l'ai recouvert de genre de "venilia" rouge et une bande blanche. Voilà, une déco toute en récup. Bon apres midi

Top 10 Essential DIY Skills That Aren't as Hard as You Think I think it depends on your definition of "maintenance." I wouldn't hesitate to change my own oil or something like that but I wouldn't dream of replacing a radiator myself. That isn't my idea of "maintenance." That's fixing something. Sorry you are afraid of doing that stuff, but even a complete engine rebuild is easy to do, and no you don't need "special tools" unless you call things beyond a hammer and screwdriver "special" I can do a front end alignment on a car in my driveway with a tape measure and a couple of carpenters squares along with the wrenches most people would have. Also if you do buy the cheap but special tools you can replace your own tires and balance them better than the "laser computerized" balance machine at the tire place. In fact the only expensive special tools I need are a Crane and engine run stand. Danger? This is why I don't take my cars to the dealer for any routine maintenance. Aside from that, dealers are inconvenient.

Designklub Wall Mounted Folding Table Indra doesn't just enjoy making terrain, he likes a good battle too. However storage is an issue and while terrain can be stored in cupboards there's always the issue of the playing surface itself. To solve the problem, Indra built this neat wall mounted, folding table: Okay, so now for the bad news: You're going to need a few DIY tools and skills, namely a saw (to cut the wood) and an electric drill (to make holes for screws and in order to mount the table to the wall, plus of course the ability to use them. A hammer and the ability to use it could prove useful as well.You're going to need a suitable wall to mount it. The image to the left shows Indra's legs. The image below shows the underside of the table and as you can see it uses a framework of batons with sheets of hardboard on top. Making a long straight cut requires quite a bit of skill with a saw so follow the advice above and it's a job you won't need to do. Indra used 3/4" x 1 1/2" batons to make his framework. Ready for use:
