I like to shave my hand and paint my fingernails so they look lady like.


Then I put a tourniquet above my wrist.

Once I lose feeling I jerk off.


That way it feels like another person giving me a handjob.

That was the side view.

Mon.

The pic on the left is you looking at it length ways. The pic on the right is you looking breadth ways. You will need to brace it both ways. Length ways, the braces will be your shelves. Breadth ways the braces will be for stability only so should be set at a different height from the shelves.

If you have all the braces at the same height it will be less stable, more prone to wobbling.

You better understand this, man. I will legit need to phone to explain if you don't.
I get it now, so one side will be higher then the other making it more stable.

But then I'll have slanted shelves right?

:patsch

No, because the legs will be the same size.
You mean have it so the top shelf goes on top of the legs so I can screw from above?

Also do you think I need a third perpendicular to support the two legs on each side?

If it's only 3 feet and you angle the screws you 'might' be ok but a third isn't a bad idea. Again, I think wood joins would be much better but that's a level of carpentry above where we are, mate. You need the right tools for that.

I'm still not sure you understand the sides though.

Ok, looked in here after mandela tagged me in the training thread, mate, from the timber ones I’ve seen in gyms, and the level of carpentry you’ll need to achieve something that will have longevity and be safe, you will not find the answers in a DIY thread and your local home handyman hardware. Think about welding one up out of steel or simply buying a decent second hand steel one. If you have your heart set on a timber one then look up tenon joins and research the strongest kiln dried, dense hardwood available to you in your area.

I think I have the picture right in my head, just not sure I understand all the jargon lol.

If I get my fence painted today I'm gonna have a bash at it.

As much as I can't woodwork I definitely can't weld.

My only DIY experience is flat pack stuff like sheds, wardrobes etc. So I feel like if I have any skill it will lie in wood.

OK finally found a wooden one looking exactly like what I want.

This doesn't seem like it has lots of fancy shit in there, just bits of wood screwed together right?
Looks much easier. Those are some fuck off bolts, rather than standard screws so definitely better.

Apparently it has some 8 inch coach bolts going up through the vertical bits as well whatever the fuck that means lol

Didn't get my fence fully painted today anyways so it will be a job for another day now, but using that picture as a guide I'm sure I can replicate it.

I need to change a light but fuck knows how to go about this one. The actually electrical part will be easy, I've changed many lights and fans and shit like that but this is more of a chandelier and weighs at least 60lbs. It's on at 16 foot high roof and hangs down around 10 feet (just low enough for me to constantly skelp my head of the thing constantly). I don't even have a ladder that high...not that a ladder would be much use as the things is so heavy...i need a platform or summin, man.

Can you hire people to come in and do shit lie this? It's only changing a light, ffs, but it's the size and height that are the problem.
