20 Places To Go Camping Before You Die Free Icon Fonts for Web User Interfaces By Jacob Gube This roundup features 18 free icon fonts that can be used in your commercial projects. The icon fonts in this post are perfect for your app user interfaces (UIs). What are Icon Fonts? Icon fonts are font files that have symbols and glyphs (e.g. arrows, folders, magnifying glasses) instead of standard alphanumeric characters. Icon fonts are like dingbat fonts, but are designed specifically for UIs. And because they’re treated like web fonts, icon fonts: Have great cross-browser support (even IE6, for example, can render web fonts using the @font-face rule)Can be scaled on-the-fly if the user adjusts their web browser settingsCan be rendered with different colorsCan embody font- and text-related CSS properties (like text-shadow and gradient) See icon fonts in action by visiting my friend Chris Coyier’s icon fonts demo page.

Why Do It Yourself? Digging into the Value of DIY A few days ago, I spent more than two hours dismantling and reassembling the guts of a toilet tank. There were some issues with flushing, and I wanted to see if I could diagnose it myself (I did, actually; there was a small broken part that was simple to replace). A plumber could have done it in ten minutes and probably would have charged me $25 or $50 for the service (in our area, anyway; it would likely be more in other areas). On another recent day, I spent about four hours building a small electronic spider that could walk under its own power. A few months ago, I disassembled part of our hot water heater to figure out why the pilot light wasn’t lighting. Whenever I describe activities like this to friends and family, many of them simply shake their head and ask why I would bother. The reasons are many. First, whenever I do a repair job myself, I know that if I’m ever called on to do it again it will be much easier the second time around. The end result of all of this?

Sintax77 | Hiking. Shooting. Exploring. Cheeseburgers. Hiking The Wallowa Lake Trailhead at the south end of Wallowa Lake provides a gateway into Oregon's Largest Wilderness, The Eagle Cap.

Homepage | Free and premium mousemade pixel perfect graphic design and web resources. | DIY Inspiration for Up-cycling Throwaway Materials If you’re a tradesman, problem solving forms a part of your daily job, and considering the price of raw materials, you are constantly aware of reducing unnecessary waste in order to cut on costs. Next time you’re at work, inspect the site and look for gems such as unused pallets, wood cut offs and piping. These materials are often foregone and taken to dumps after a specific project has been completed, but can be transformed into something both beautiful and functional – with some crafty work of course! We have searched the web far and wide and racked up a list of interesting ideas to inspire you to up-cycle (that is to reuse discarded objects or material in such a way as to create something of higher value than it was in its original state). Pallet Work Bench Pallets can be found virtually anywhere and are surprisingly hardy as they are meant for carrying heavy loads of bricks and shipments.

A Catenary-Cut Tarp A Catenary-Cut Tarp Jeff Manion (Sorefoot) The finished tarp setup over a rope in a low configuration. General description: My goal was to make a lightweight durable dining tarp for canoe/kayak trips in e.g. The design is similar in some respects to commercially available tarps such as the Moss/MSR Hepta/VistaWings (65 and 120 sq ft, respectively). Weights: My completed 100 sq. foot version weighs 20.1 oz without any stakes or guylines. Scaling the Design: The design should scale easily, although some sizes will be much more efficient material-wise, since silnylon is sold only in about 5 ft widths. Set-up: The tarp is designed to be set-up with the pointed end higher than the "flat" end. Time: This was my first large sewing project. Recommended Tools Sanford Sharpie® permanent marker or similar for marking on silnylon. Materials: Silnylon, 65" width: 10 yds (8.66 yds + excess for reinforcement) 100% polyester or nylon thread ¾ inch nylon grosgrain ribbon 20 yds (19 yds actually used)
