Yeah I joined a Facebook group full of grandmas and they mainly use them to cover up ugly walls in their garden. There’s some super realistic designs out there.

And at $22 a shower curtain, it’s not going to break the bank.

Once bunnings reopens and I can legally Obtain fence palings��, I’m going to knock up some oversized picture frames and make the side of the shed look nice.

This frame was made from junk pile fence palings and the shower curtain was stapled on with an office stapler - so there is room for improvement

And guess what - the sensors usually err on the side of caution (By about 1000 pages).

A couple of squares of black duct tape (one on either side) fool the sensors so you can get those last 1000 pages.

Job done - now my printer is working again
Just printed out some Doctors forms and it occurred to me it had been a while since my printer lied and said it was out of ink

Still cranking out copies 4 years later

Yeah I'm hoping the hedge will eventually fill in the gap but the curtain will have to hold up until it does.

Ahh great - just googled - is boiled linseed oil safe for cutting boards. The answer is no - only the unboiled stuff is safe

Looks like I’ll be cutting up a plastic chopping board and screwing that over the top

Recently bought this chair to make fishing on steep banks a little more comfy

But anyone, who’s used a chair on steep banks, will tell you - if you can’t get the back legs to sink into the bank to get it level - you are going to have a bad time

So I just jerryied up this little post hole digger. No more un-level seating for me

….Would also work as a trenching tool for different style chairs and a good "carp whacker" if it was made from heavy steel

My Mate who turned this - into this - is more concerned with how it looks that how it functions as a fishing vessel

That means no useful rod holders on the boat

Hes been sending me videos of him fishing for whiting with his rods just lying on the floor and draped over the gunnels. Its been doing my head in

He doesnt even want a few rail mounts - where you can pull the holder out and just leave a small female part attached to the rail

So I've been trying to come up with a quick install/uninstall holder, that would leave no trace on the boat when he wasnt fishing

Although prototypes are ugly as sin. It wouldn’t take too much effort to smooth out the rough edges
