I know this my sound wried but what about a old water bed mattress thats 1000 to 2000 ga of rian water and it can set under a proch and you can use pvc on it too but it's wrie.
thats a really good idea.  have to see if i can find one of them once
45 gallon plastic drum (although any water tight barrel would work ie wine, etc) with a spigot at the bottom and 20ft of garden hose.  It's collecting rainwater from my gutters
thats what i am useing right now Geoff.  looking for something bigger.
2 DRUMS?  ;)

Maybe an above ground pool with a hole in it?  :)


OK, i'm done....let the braintrust help out here a bit

haha  i do have a pool bout dont think everybodys gonna like it when i use most of the water from itt. hah
Well, you can daisy chain as many barrels together that you want. Just couple them together with hose or pipe at the bottom. Water will just flow from one to the other. Instead of three 45- gallon barrels, you have one 135-gallon reservoir.
I put this one together for my mother in law.  The 500 gallon tank is not nearly big enough.  I also included a close up pic of the brace that I made to support the 4 inch pvc supply to the tank.  So even though there is no woodwork involved there are a few items which were created in my  shop.  The water flows from the gutters, through a sock filter into a 60 gallon sediment tank which overflows into the 500 gallon tank.  Water in the tank is crystal clear.  Guess I need to get a picture after the cardboard was removed from around the tank, it was there to keep the sand out of the paint when I painted the tank.

I’m looking to upgrade my miter saw. I’m willing to invest a good amount of money to get one with the precision pocket hole joinery requires. Would anyone like to offer a recommended model?

New Kreg 720Pro

I saw the video Kreg put out for this new jig and had high hopes for it.

I purchased one today and am very disappointed with it.

First the docking station is extremely cheap. The plastic is pathetic. A Lego has more…

Not Pleased With Pocket Hole Construction

Several months ago, I purchased the Kreg K4MS so that I could build the Lego Table as outlined on the companion "buildsomething" web site which exclusively uses pocket hole construction.  I have considerable experience with conventional…
