The "Librarian" seems to be more in the prepper doom and gloom camp, but "Survivor Library" does have a great index of resources from early in the industrial age. These books and journals likely have information applicable to #DIY #solarpunk projects.

Happy #SunDIY! I'm finally ready to share that #DIY project I've been working on: it's a corkboard made of wine corks!

My roommates and (to a lesser extent) I drink a lot of wine, and with nowhere in town that recycles corks we really didn't want to just throw them away. We'd been letting them pile up in a glass container on our endtable, but then I had the idea to #upcycle them. With just the corks, some hot glue, and an unneeded plywood shelf taken from my hand-me-down desk, I made this corkboard! We still haven't nailed down a spot to hang it yet, but that's coming soon

Tip: Cutting the corks in half doubles your surface area and makes them much easier to glue

Though my wife has made it clear that she considers Valentines Day to be a capitalist scheme to sell cards and dying flowers and not something that NEEDS to be celebrated, I do want to make her something to give her the day afterward, as I have done in years past. However, I dont have any ideas. My mental #DIY box has run out.


@Danny ooo DIY mesh things? i like the pretty fly for a wifi name lol

Hello, friends! I'm looking to utilize the consistent rain of my home in North Florida and want to create something to harness it for self-sufficiency purposes.

Does any tech-minded person know of a machine or a semi-simple build that a tech noob could make which would transform rain into energy? I'm currently thinking of a gutter/waterwheel system hooked up to a battery (covered) in some fashion.

I totally missed #SunDIY, ironically, because my partner and I were doing, DIY 😁

We put some mypex liner in some wooden planters. This should help extend their life (from like 10 to 20 years, we hope) and stop water just seeping away too easily.

Happy #SunDIY! If you're doing work with wood and aren't being very particular about its strength, shape, or quality, try using pallets! Just drive around and look by the dumpsters behind businesses and you should see some laying around for you to take after a brief talk with the manager - you can also check craigslist and 1001 Pallets:

I once found a place with huge stacks of pallets and crates on craigslist, then used them to build garden boxes and a rainwater collector (pics below!)

I think I'd rather have it in my back yard.
