  1. DIY - Do It Yourself
    As many people know targets for archery can be expensive. You could pay a ton of money for a target that lasts only a bit longer than the cheaper targets. I have seen ways all over the internet and have shot a homemade targets before, so I know which ones tend to work well compared to others...
  2. DIY - Do It Yourself
    I came across this website! Drill your own well. Good info on this site especially for all the "off the grid" enthusiasts or places in remote areas. USE PVC as your drill! Why pay those expensive fees to hire someone else to do the work. This site is dedicated to technique and is not one of...
  3. DIY - Do It Yourself
    This is a project that almost anyone can do with some basic tools and some patience. This is a can storage rack based on PVC. It may be a good solution for people with restricted access to tools like those who live in apartments. I started this as a cheap way to store cans. Now that I've done...

I've also heard that it can be used to build decks and patios. I imagine that the plastic lumber used in the decks and patios would then be capable...
  7. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    In the interest of filtering and storing water in an apartment setting, I am designing a system based in part on what someone posted here. The question: I want to use 4" white PVC. Is there a difference in PVC meant for waste water vs. potable drinking water--other than pressure...
  8. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I ran across a post on another forum where a person took a piece of PVC pipe and made a sheath for his machete by heating the pipe with a paint heat gun and pressing it between two boards. So I tried it myself. The results were fairly good. Then I decided to make a sheath for my meat cleaver. I...
