    Default DIY Upcycling - Show me your contraptions!!

    I love reusing old stuff where I can, stoner engineering is some of the finest in the world

    Share your contraptions/ideas and lets see your creative sides.

    Here's my drain table/pot stand made from an old dog crate, zipties and tent poles.



    After the harvest I hung it from rope ratchets and used it to hang dry from

    I also use a valeters grit guard ziptied to my middle tent pole to force the tent sides out instead of sucking in can just see it poking out the side of the opening above

    My feed buckets are too big for the sink so use this to fill them on the floor. Five litre bottle and some old tube, turn on the tap and let gravity do the rest

    Nice one, those 5L bottles can be cut into compost scoops too as another use 4pint milk jugs work better for that tho as the handle is on the side.

    Cheers Ice, I use 25L plasterer buckets for feed and they are way too big for the sink. I'm far to lazy to carry em to the outside tap Infact I think most of my ideas are born from ways to be lazier It's my inner sloth channeling through

    Who says laziness can't create positive stuff hey lol

    I have a massive yellow bucket which JUST about fits into my sink, but I usually use a 5L jug to fill it up..we all get around it in some way or other.

    Some up-cycled blue pickle tubs from when I made my RDWC system now cut down and turned into a recirculating system with some rhizo stands stuck on top I had in the shed from when I first started coco drain to waste.

    Seedling shot bottle


    Made this today.


    Get this...and a hacksaw



    1. Hacksaw the bottle apart at the screw cap, should get somethin like this



    2. Take the thick plastic circle, flip it then glue the rim of the screw cap and the plastic, shove it back in. Glue and replace the waterproof washer thing if you get one. I lightly clamped it so it was tight.



    3. Shove the tube through the bottom of the lid, probably have a filter on one end, thats gonna wanna stay under the cap



    4. Fill it up, screw the lid on and off ya go. You have to squeeze lightly too, no jet of water and no dripping



    I imagine ya can get these for 50p on flea bay but I had this at home and I'm bored..and sad

    You're welcome

    Here is my Super Deluxe New Improved Mk2 humidifier, attached to my fan intake, and made from an old fridge basket, old basin with water, and some wet cloths dangling in the water. An old lampshade completes the picture. It helps raise the humidity a bit when the fan is running on slow speed, and humidity is very low. Click image for larger version.

    The legs are rotten on the BBQ. Cut the top bit off, sit on bricks, new barbie I just got to do it!



    I also built my veg groom with either pallet wood or stuff from skips. Total cost of the room, 3 sheets of plasterboard and fixings, sorry can't get pics yet.

    Thumbs up Budget drip trays

    Budget drip trays

    I have a load of pallet wood and a couple of spare plant saucers. I use 3 of these in 1 tent and today made 2 more for the other tent. Next week I might get some 90 degree connectors and some tubing to go to waste.











    I will be replacing that oven tray for 2 that are in my other groom. That tent is 2.35m high so I'm going to make the stands taller so I can get a bigger waste tray or low plastic box in there.

    Wink Speaker stand bird table

    I found a couple of speaker stands outside a house a while back. Stopped using them so thought, "What to do?"

    A bird feeding station came to mind. I had spare pot saucers, a length of pallet wood and some no nails. It took about 10 minutes to make. I left an overhang so I can attach a few feeders as well.





    I'll put food on the larger and water in the smaller
