Kinda DIY, Kinda Pets

My partner and I have been talking about making some cat paths in our house since long before we owned our house. We recently got 2 new dogs, so now it is a high priority project. The first step was putting up some shelves in the hallway and making a portal from the hallway to the bedroom closet (you can see it just above the...

What do you recommend as a solution to harden paper? (libranet.de)

I have a few project ideas, and I thought of reusing the paper from various shop catalogs that I receive in my physical mailbox. I'd like to make it stiffer, something more like cardboard. I read somewhere online that you could use corn starch for this, mixed with water. Would it work? Do you have better ideas?

XLR Splitter Impedance Matching - Worth It?

Hi all. I’m splitting 2 XLR line level audio signals into 3 channels each. I bought one nice device (used) online called the Whirlwind SPL1x3LL (line level).

But you all confirmed what I thought. I ran close to 25’ of 10/2 cable from the second story to the basement. Nothing is wired...

How to get cigarette smell out of my apartment?

So my roommate is a habitual cigarette smoker. He doesn’t smoke indoors (thankfully) but he does smoke about every other night outdoors. I don’t think he realizes that when he’s done smoking the smell sort of… lingers on him and his clothes. Last night after he was done he was in the kitchen for a bit cooking. I came in...

How to pass low voltage ethernet cables through drywall with insulation

Hello everyone, I am pulling my home’s existing ethernet cables from the garage and into my home to install a network rack. Currently my garage does not have insulation (for a future project), so it get’s too hot during summer for my router to live there, so I want to install it in my mudroom where there is insulation. My...
