Hello /howto/,

Most threads on here are asking the users how to do a certain thing. However, let this thread be a celebration of recent projects you have accomplished. I will list mine to initiate the thread. Mine are all just handyman shit since I don't have any serious skills but yours don't have to be home or car repairs, just any project that you figured out "how to" do.

If anyone plans to do any of these projects soon I can offer a bit of advice.

how did you go about creating a water line to your fridge?

it's not too hard, but I would suggest to op to check all his fittings regularly for the first month, and then periodically, a small leak can destroy your house if it goes unnoticed

Awesome thread idea OP

Just yesterday I took an old broken pair of turtle beach Earforce XL1s and opened them, I gutted out all the wire. I removed the mic (I don't game so i don't need it) and I made a hole in the right can to route the wire through (1/4 inch cable won't fit the headband and I prefer having a wire leading to each can instead of the single wire design anyways). I soldered the wires in place and tested each speaker. They both worked so I closed both cans up and joined the ends of the wire with a female 3.5 mm jack.

I think the part im most proud of is what I did with the mic. Its on a little ratcheting swing arm type thing that juts out of headband on the left side. When i remover it there was this ugly open space so I took and cut the end off the little arm piece since it was made to fit in this hole anyways. i glues it on and you almost can't tell that there was a mic there

Sure theyre a far cry from any of my high end headphones but Im not taking a $300+ pair of headphones on the go with me so these will do for travelling. Plus they weren't even mine, a friend of mine was just gonna chuck em after the right can crapped out (9 times out of 10 its just a broken wire) and I took them off his hands. I hate letting shit go to waste when all it takes is an hour or two of soldering to make it work like new again

I got a little T joint to splice the (COLD!!!) line from under my sink, then drilled some holes through my cabinets and ran the line through them, and behind the stove, to the fridge. And like the other guy said check it a lot when it's new until you are sure it won't leak.

Over the weekend I helped build and design a bunch of obstacles for a WWII reenactment event. I made hedgehogs, dragon's teeth, and a bunker.

I had a lot of fun doing it.

My vacuum quit working on me so I finally got around to splicing the power cord of one that a dog chewed up years ago that my sister left in my garage. Works better than mine did.

I recently, with the help of my friend and grandma's boyfriend, built a pergola from the bench swing in my grandma's backyard patio. It's properly and 98% squared up and level with lots of room for addition and improvement. First carpentry foray and I'm very pleased. Also recently replaced and fixed some interior panels and dash area of my car. Weeeeee. Now I have to rebridge my old acoustic guitar.

Before you judge me, I should better explain the quote "Doing it all for Doochland" and why it's intentionally misspelled.. It's an inside joke started by a WWII German Reenacting Unit, the 9th SS out of Wisconsin. Who already had this notorious "Animal House Fraternity" of the reenacting world. The pitch was "Since every skinhead organization is filled with rednecks, what if there were rednecks in the actual SS..." Then the entire group does there best impression of a "Redneck Nazi". Some of the more memorable quotes included:

> "Don't you tell me how to Nazi!"
> "The Reich Will Rise Again!"
> "I do thinks to Eva Brawn I wouldn't even do to a farm animal!"
> "We got them there Jute Box 87's you know them scream bombers that go WHOOOOOO!!!"
> "You see we go them Falshm... Fall shim... FURSHINGER! GGGHHHHHHEEEEE!!!! German Paratroopers hell ya!"

And the bit went on and on and I was just rolling on the ground my sides exceeding light speed somewhere near the Horsehead Nebula. So I dedicated this German Dunkelweiss Beer to those clowns and added the quote "Doin' it all fur Doochland".

> pic related, some of the guys of the unit who found a mud hole at an event and jumped in.

That's also a 4th gen Fbod. I had no problem making the door and it saved me the burden of pulling the suspension, especially doing it outta my brother's driveway. I used my Dremel 200 and a saw (Part #420)
