dear twitter, thanks for introducing me to matt who describes himself as a ‘builder, designer and tinkerer’ (i like that.) his blog wood & faulk is where he records his projects involving building, designing and tinkering. he also has a shop that’s stocked with all sorts of nice stuff. check out this cork wrapped french porteur handlebar he put together for his bike…
what an amazing idea if you don’t have much of a garden (or a garden at all) and you want to grow your own veggies
now i know some of you might think it’s sacrilege to paint over a wooden piece, but the fact of the matter is that this particular chest of drawers only cost me R300 (that’s like, US $40) – and it basically just had a shoddy veneer that was chipping in places.
this is an awesome DIY project from the brick house – it looks so cool and professional, like something you’d pay thousands of bucks to get an interior designer to do. not sure about where you can get plumbing fixtures like that in SA, i assume builder’s warehouse? errrrm…. plumb-link? either way, it’s just standard pipes that are spray painted black…. man, i’m so clueless. don’t laugh at me, plumbers.
In the 1980s video cassette technology made it possible for “mobile cinema” operators in Ghana to travel from town to town and village to village creating temporary cinemas. In order to promote these showings, artists were hired to paint large posters of the films & were given the artistic freedom to paint the posters as they desired – often adding elements that weren’t in the actual films, or without even having seen the movies.
