    • Finished my couch table. The legs are aluminium extrusions (40mm x 40mm) and the plate is low quality oak that I stained and varnished myself. I also rounded the edges and cut threads for the felted table feet. This project turned out to be more expensive and require more work than anticipated but it's my own. The good thing is that the table height is higher than the seating height and my legs fit comfortably under the table. http://rainbowdash.net/attachment/875992

          • I'm thinking about buying cheap Thinkpad T43 keyboards in order to make them normal PC USB Keyboards. I found a Github project that offers code for a Teensy 3.2 microcontroller and a PCB schematic to make that conversion possible https://github.com/thedalles77/USB_Laptop_Keyboard_Controller/tree/master/IBM%20T43%20Files All the new keyboards available out there are garbage. I hate mechanical clicky keyboards. I have already a Thinkpad USB Keyboard but I want to have one at work and I want a spare one.

                • I successfully upgraded an old and unused backpack with hooks in order to attach to a bicycle rack. https://i.imgur.com/PQNMPwC.jpg Instead of buying such a bag I only spent a fraction of that. I invested 3€ in materials (not counting the aluminium bar that was scrap) while a bought one would be at least 6 times that. Now I can carry twice the stuff when going shopping.

Also eBay doesn't seem to even have a Ninetales patch so

                          • @scribus Interesting. The dimensions of that crate is about the shape of two cubes stuck together. The shape doesn't lend that much for comics. I can imagine having 3 rows of comics in that box that are side-by-side that would approximately fill the crate's shape without major alterations. However I think that it might be too much. I think that producing these crates would be expensive as it needs a lot of manual labor. Also I have not the tools to make the crates efficiently and with quality that justifies the costs.

                          • @scribus Yeah. I would need a big CNC router and/or a medium-size laser cutter to cut down in labor time and to provide decent and repeatable quality. It could be done without those but it would be not economical.

                            • Just got an original inked sketch from my favorite web comic artist. The paper dimensions are somewhat odd: 33cm x 30cm. Finding a fitting picture frame is impossible without ordering a custom one. I settled with a 40cm x 40cm frame. Not ideal but the best thing that is affordable.

                              • @adiwan I think a lot of frames intend for you to use a mat to fill in the space, I have a hard enough time finding frames to accommodate (US) standard stuff like 8x10's or 8.5x11 (also, why two standards so close?!)

                              • @scribus I'll use a piece of black cardboard as a backing material like in the attached picture. I did the same with all my framed comics. The picture I want to frame is still being flattened. It has been shipped rolled up, so it'll take some time to straighten. I could make a passepartout but I don't like them as they need to overlap with the picture. I could buy a custom made frame but it costs 2.5 times as much as the closest off-the-shelf model. http://rainbowdash.net/attachment/875948

                                • @scribus BTW: The first episode of season 5 of Rick & Morty is also there on the channel. I watched the episode elsewhere but it's neat that they put it on Youtube for the exposure. Rick & Morty doesn't need that but Tuca & Bertie needs that as its style can be off-putting very easily.
