Broil King Regal 490 Black ™

A friend of mine has purchased this heavy, high-quality and sturdy gadgetry for him and his family: A Broil King “Regal 490” gas grill. Although I, personally,  like grilling or BBQ over blazing coals far more, I have to admire the cool and easy to use thingy he just bought.


How To: Setting up a Hammock

I’ve got a lot of trees here in the northern germany refuge and now I also finally got a hammock (Amazon) again! I’ve set up hammocks many times before – as a boy scout – but it’s about 25 years since then… so here’s how I used to set up a hammock:


How To: Using a Lashing Belt with Ratchet

I used a lashing belt for setting up my hammock and someone I know who didn’t do this ever before asked me how a lashing belt works. Although it’s fairly easy I want to explain the general use step by step here:


Tying a Bowline Knot

I’ll need this one in the next days, so I tried to dig up some long forgotten boyscout knowledge from 30 years ago. Didn’t work… 🙂

Thus, here’s a very good video on how to tie a bowline knot the easy way and if I remember it right, this is the method that I learned as a boy. It is used for mooring ships as well as securing climbing harnesses, aaaand – in boyscout camps all over the world in every imaginable way.

The most common german word for it is “Palstek” in the north (and resembles the vast use in shipping). But I grew up in southern germany and I know it better as “Rettungsschlinge” (used e.g. by rescue personnel) or as “Ankerstich” (which is the term that I learned). Here’s more on it on Bowline – Wikipedia.

It’s very useful, fairly simple and absolutely worth the effort to learn.


Stir Frying 101- Chinese Stir Fry Techniques

Have a look at this guys cool YouTube Video:

Yes, it is nicely made, it’s informative and yes, I did learn from it… But the actual hammer is this elaborate article that guy wrote on reddit as a complement for the movie. This is downright premium content – if you’re even only slightly interested in asian cooking, this is a must read!


How to compost

Since we’re planning to start a compost pile in the northern germany refuge, I found this infographic useful.


How Networks Work

I stumbled upon an absolutely great article on how computer networks work last night. That guy really did a great job explaining networking basics in simple and understandable words! If you’re interested in the matter, read it here on imgur


Alcohol Stove – A New Approach

I found a new Idea on building an alcohol stove. It’s easy to make and it actually works! Besides, it’s fun to make, doesn’t cost any money and it’s a nice afternoon project.

See the video below for instructions. It’s PostapocalypticGarage’s YouTube Channel. He’s a german, but he presents his videos in english.


Mounting Internal Doors

So, finally, a friendly professional person installed the door to the shop for me. I have observed this work many times, but I don’t dare to do it on my own. It requires absolute accuracy, precision and, last but not least, knowledge about what you’re doing.

First, one half of the doorframe is glued and screwed together and inserted into the door-hole. After levelling everything carefully with a spirit level, it is fixed in the correct position with several wedges and the hollows are filled with construction foam.

To ensure the correct position of every part of the frame, the whole construction is fixed with tension rods until the foam has cured and hardened. Next, the other half of the Frame will be installed (foam, glue and screws) and the door is ready.

How To: Miter Joints for Baseboards

We got wooden flooring in the northern germany refuge recently, and I had to install the baseboards (the mouldings covering the joint of the walls and the adjoining floor) over the last days. Since it’s an older house and not every corner is a perfect ninety-degree-angle, I had to rely on some measuring and precise cutting to make the baseboard joints nice and flush.
