RE: Building stuff.
My husband built the bar in our basement...

Does that count?


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

RE: Building stuff.
I have a lot of do it yourself fitness equipment. From homemade dumbbells to medicine balls made from old basketballs I injected with sand. I'm changing back to my summer tires in a couple days, and I'm gonna retire the winter tires I'm using now and turn them into a heavy punching/kicking bag.

Yes, unless he walked into said bar, got conked on the head and fell down. Tongue

Joke goes- 2 Irishmen walked into a bar. The third one ducked under it. Hobo

Seriously, if your husband built it, it is built stuff. Pics!

I'll see if I can find some pics of the construction of an addition I put on my previous house (650 square feet- two bedrooms and a full bath). If I have pics, they would not be digital. So, probably not. No

RE: Building stuff.
I started into cabinets in 2013 with a master bath remodel. I took it down to the studs and came back.
Put that window in over the wall between toilet alcove and shower. 80% of the year it is open enough to take away the shower humidity.

Craftsman style cabinets, more built in than hung or installed. The counter is granite mini slabs. You can see the seams if you look closely.
Wood is natural cherry.

towel drawers behind the cabinet doors.

Heated floor, getting covered with self leveling concrete.

My brother in law is in a wheelchair and has had issues with sores and injuries. He needs to give his butt a rest, but he was going to visit our friends in the UK.
Transferring into an easy chair is a great way for him to get a rest, but dangerous for the injuries.
I made a rig so he could recline any time he had a few minutes.
I did not have aluminum or a means to weld it, so I opted for light tubing, and further lightened it with holes.

Picked up some existing holes to add a headrest.

The part that rests on the ground doubles as an ergonomic assist bar. The standard rear handles are so low for most of us, we are quite stooped over trying to help up stairs, etc. This is almost shopping cart height without interfering with his operation.

Move 1 pin and help him recline for a while.

I'll go downstairs in a day or so and snap some pictures.

I might snap some pictures of our homebrew system too.

The difference between prayer and masturbation - is when a guy is through masturbating - he has something to show for his efforts.

RE: Building stuff.
Don't let the box stores sell you $500 kits.

That was about what I paid for and installed. The two bags of SLC are $50
Adds about 1/4", so plan accordingly. I cut the joists down and sistered them, and made custom joists for a walk in no thresh hold shower.
