The Leonardo Da Vinci Bridge. Now the real thing. Made with "T" connectors to just keep the initial distance between the first two and last two longitudinal pipes (10 feet long all of them). Then on every transversal pipe (40 inches long), a "T" connector just to keep the pipes in place without sliding sideways, since they are not attached to any other pype by any mechanical part. They will be used for the railing afterwards. The bridge was lifted with 10 units of 10 feet long pipes, and 5 units of 40" pipes. I think that a couple cross over conduit campls (as the only one that is placed in the picture, completely loose now), could help prevent the pipes from sliding. Also the shrinkable wrap or some bicicle tires tubbing (will look into doing this as anchoring help), could do the trick. Hope you enjoy the build, lots of fun, trial and error, and... at least 2 hours alone! As long as the pipe does not slide, the bridge does stand alone without any problem.
What was suggested, was also made. First the study, done on Tuesday this week. It works, and the less slippery the surface, the better the Da Vinci bridge works.
A stronger variation of the mini greenhouse to dry palm fruits under the equatorial sun, and... rain. 15 min project!
An early morning project. It is a mini-greenhouse (40 inches long, 25 inches wide and 20 inches high) to dry pumpking seeds, in this case, and later with improovement, to dehydrate anything. The equatorial sun does the energy input. Nothing as fancy as the late structural projects, but as usefull for sure. And was done in 5 minutes!
Selecting Coco Beans and packaging vegetable oils has never been so smooth! I finished the first version of the artesanal oil production and packaging working station. I separated the "office" (TV stand on casters), from the oil production area. It is reconfigurable, so first I can select bulk Cocoa Beans, weight it, and store it packaged in a single flow. Then, I reconfigure the top work area and have enough space to filter and package oil in small containers for testing and selling. Lower area for storage and tools, middle shelf for seed flow, and top reconfigurable counter for working according to needs. Last picture is the caos before makerpiping the place, a great makerpiping sunday afternoon!
A hack to cut pipe easily. I used my workstation structure, as I was building it, to attach the larger pipe that was getting cut with a cross over conduit clamp to the workstation side supports. It made cutting efordless and more precise.
Off to Adventure! Are you rushig up to buy or make a camping table? Solution: Makerpipe! It was made with 2 units of 40" long and 6 units of 20" long 3/4" EMT pipe, 8 "T" connectors and 2 pre-cut 1/2" OSB boards, made to fit in the back of my car. It made my weekend visit to a tropical forest farm near the Equator line, much more enjoyable and organized (altough the table des not look like that after breakfast!). A very simple build for a beginner builder like me!
Makerpipe rocks! It is like lego for grown ups, and I guess, soon my son will be also creating many things with this incredible system. I wanted to transform my old DIY wood Europallet desk into a makerpipe standing up workstation, and here it is.
