Outdoor Faucet

Our garden water tap is at a completely impossible position. Due to structural demands the maximum height is fixed so it can run clear in winter. I really didn’t like it so I found a remedy building a disconnectable faucet-board. It resembles a little fountain and it looks nice enough. Please see my highly sophisticated sketch/drawing if you’re interested in building your own 🙂


Mouse Livetrap (aka “Jerry’s Demise”)

I have the sneaking suspicion that a little mouse might dwell in the attic in the northern germany refuge… Faintly low, scratching noises can be heard from above at night and the cat is closely monitoring the ceiling from below for minutes. I’ll try to catch Jerry with this simple contraption and set him free on the fields near my house.

It looks like fresh from the scrap yard (well… it actually IS) and cost me nothing at all. The principle is widely available in loads of variations all across the internet but here’s how it works again.


Hammer Makeover

One of the rusty and scruffy tools that I found in the northern gemany garden was a small hammer with cracked pien. So I tried to restore it into a japanese-style hammer by just cutting the tip off and give it back some shine. This is the result (though I might have to replace the handle again).


Planing Stop

I came up with something completely new! Something never ever done before! I’ll revolutionize my woodwork and that of everyone who reads this! I made… (drum roll)… a planing stop! Such a lockdown is great for finally making some long postponed projects.


Water Level Indicator

I had some water damage recently in the northern germany refuge, due to a defective pump and a resulting overflow of the respective reservoir. So I came up with the idea of installing a water level indicator system to it, enabling me to have an eye on the filling level in the future.


Finding a LED’s Polarity

LED PolarityI needed this for a project that I’m working on at the moment (I can never remember it correctly…) I thought perhaps someone might find it useful.

More about LEDs on Wikipedia.


Shop Vac

I refurbished the cyclone dust separating addon (click for an explanation!) for the shop vacuum – finally, after about two years of not being really content with the old one. Got a new and more durable bucket for it, added an air vent and installed it in an unused corner of the shop.

As usual, this is not a professional setup and also my vacuum cleaner is a little weak in the chest, but it’s enough for my small shop and it cost me next to nothing. Now the new one works perfectly and it’s ready to go.

Damn thing is that now I don’t have an excuse anymore to clean the shop.


DIY Leather Balm

(The Image above is NOT stolen, although it looks like so. I just reused a tin that I already had.)

I made some wood wax finish again lately that really works very well and I wanted something to care for for my leather items as well. Leather Balm is cool for keeping your leather items good-looking, water-proof (to a certain degree), soft and nourished – thus – well cared for.

Applied and used properly, it’ll make your leather last a lifetime. Summarized, you want to provide for your leather with natural oils and fats and at the same time protect it from the elements as good as you can.


Meat Slicer

I watched a very inspiring YouTube Video lately from a guy who made himself a meat slicer. Now, since I’m rather productive making bacon, dried meat or sausages every so often, I decided that I wanted one of these too! Mine is not as sophisticated as his (he is definitely “carpentry level: god”), but it works and I’m proud!


Wireless Charging Station

I made a wireless charging station for my phone lately. It consists of this wireless charger and some leftover – hold on fast – lemontree wood scraps! More or less thrown together (well, it was not that much of a challenge), sanded finely and wax-finished.
