A nice add-on for my stools and dining area. I think the pictures are self explaining.

As a replacement for my broken chairs in the dinette I built four simple cubic stools with a storage compartment. It is a very simple design, still I think it is nice to look at. One stool did cost me about 43€ (new machines, tools and time not considered).
If you not familiar with circular saws, glueing wood, etc. better inform yourself and practice before you start!

To be able to continue with the Super8 project, I have to determine the focal length of the various lenses I got (hoping that at least one meets the requirements). So I build a simple optical bench. Thanks to the simple g-code generator, the effort to manufacture the holders was quite minimal.
The bench basically consists of:

Searching the internet I came across some sites about urban and vertical gardening. I liked the idea so I was going to give it a chance.
After two months I can say, that this project is a success.
In this configuration, no additional watering pipe in the middle of the big one is needed. Typically I water from the top and let it seep through the soil. The last three pictures show the growth of the different plants.
One drawback: The soil shrinks and settles to much in the tubes and it is hard to keep it moist enough especially in summer.
To solve the problem with the dried out and settled soil in the tubes I am going to test the contruction with hydroculture.
I substitued the soil with clay granulate (2-5mm), added a small water pump and two pipes to pump up the water to the top of the two plant towers. At the top, I drilled 1mm holes into the water pipes sealed the end and formed a circle. A timer switch turns on the pump 4 times a day for 5 minutes which is enough to provide every little plant balcony with enough water (with out any plants yet). Check out the latest pictures for details.

Fresh herbs are much more tastier than the dried ones and this little greenhouse extends the time of my herbs harvest.
The greenhouse is an add-on to the plant trough and can be removed quite easily without any tools. I used my cnc machine to manufacture the round corners of the pillars since no round pillars with the needed radius were available in the DIY market.

Since the basic repair instructions are available on the internet, I only want to give a hint about how to deal with the plastic bolt of the handle. This plastic bolt needs to be melted to form a kind of a rivet.
