Re: Introduce yourself to the community

Hi Catherine here from WA I'm partially buying an ex homes west rental and need a labotamy. Barely able to keep up with maintenance, actually that's not true its lagging severely. Blessed with two children grown up. 3 by 1 brick and tile. I have heaps of tools from garage sales and stiff given to me but have no idea how to use them. ATM trying to hang doors, thought it was going to be easy. NO .... I bought 4 second hand doors. Long story short went to bunnings and bought new latches etc. I have everything but wood plane. Once I have my plane hoping this site will help.

Re: Introduce yourself to the community

Hi Everyone,
My name is Peter. I'll give pretty much anything a go when it comes to DIY. Painting, house maintenance, building projects. I have a workshop in the backyard, 6x4 shed, should have bought a bigger one. My next project will be making 2 console [xbox] desks for my two boys. My idea is to make the desks with storage and mount the tv screens on a backboard so they are not on the desk top.

Hi Peter (@stewy64),

 

Great to have you join us. Love your can-do attitude. I'm sure you'll fit in just fine in the Workshop community! 

 

It would be great if you could document that Xbox project for us. I'm sure it will inspire other community members. You might also get some advice and suggestions from others as you go. I'd encourage you to click on the Start a discussion button and kick off with a post about your plans. You can also add photos along the way. It sounds like a fantastic project.

 

Welcome aboard, and please let me know if you ever need a hand getting the most from the site.

 

Jason

Re: Introduce yourself to the community

Hi all,
I'm a gardener, horticulturist, serious DIY'er & very into practical sustainability.
My main gig is what back in ye olden days would have been described as a 'journalist' but these days it's 'multimedia communicator' as I write, photograph, create video & on-line content etc.
Trying (once certifiers & council get their collective acts together...) to embark on my biggest DIY yet... owner-builder on a reno & extension of our home...

@Adam_W
Welcome to the forum...Unfortunately non-compliance is a major issue for the Battlers & Punters building and constantly in the headlines every day.
LOL...Sounds like they are debating your design/build?
In the words of Chris Rock
"There's Maths & Everything else is debatable"
Please call out if you need a (virtual) hand

Hey @BIM_Engineer

Our Council (Sunshine Coast in Qld) has a bee in their bonnets at the moment about dispersal zones of biocycle systems so they are dragging the chain over that.
Not helped by our certifier, who we only came to through our designer, assuming that we wouldn't need to worry too much about it...
Left us starting on the back foot.

Goodluck!
