I am building a 15'x23' deck in Knoxville. I built a sandwich girder at the end using 12" x 16" deep concrete piers, 4x4 posts sitting on galvanized metal brackets and pressure treated 2x10's sandwiched together using 3" nails and 1/2" lag bolts 6 inches long. I left the braces I used to hold the...
What would this proposal provide that the existing Home Improvement fails to provide?
There are are already tags for wood, woodworking and wooden-furniture etc. and Home Improvement is struggling with their questions per day statistic as it is.
Back then, I used "permanence" as a guide for topicality, so something that's part of the house. If you're building a built-in cabinet, it's on-topic because it would become part of the house; if you're building a bed-side locker, not so much (because you'll take your furniture with you if you sell the house). These days, I realize that many of the same skills would be used for both, so it doesn't really matter how they're applied.

Is there a way without using junction boxes to simply splice in additional length of 12/2 NM-B cable? Can I use twist caps?
I'm putting in a dog door and as it so happens, there is some 12/2 right in the way of the location I've chosen. There's no additional slack in the cable, and I don't want ...
Okay, so I've got a few issues with this thing. It is fairly inconsistent in its water distribution. A few plastic pipes don't have ends, so they just hose water. Are these things standardized at all? If I want to replace the ends, what kinds of options am I looking for?
@w I bought a kit from Lowes, Mister Landscaper brand. Set up four separate drip feeds for a set of raised beds in my wife's new veggie garden. A toch priey compared to a hand sprayer, but works great.
@ChrisCudmore I don't know what the pipes look like underground, but the piping above ground is this thin plastic-y pipe (it is ductile enough to bend with my hand though) that I'd estimate is about 3/8" in diameter.
I'm looking to use soaker hoses on my tomatoes this year and need a bit over 100 feet to get all the plants. The maximum length I can get one in is 50 feet so I would need three hoses to get everything evenly. Would they work ok if I connected them all together or would it be better to use a 3-wa...
Still looking for that ice maker. Probably going to use a draining system, but a bit concerned about amount of electricity and water they use since they are always refreshing the ice and not freezing it. Any experiences with this? Brands?
@ChrisCudmore I keep hearing horror stories about drip pans and leaks. We use about 20 glasses a day and the fridge can handle it, but when we have company we run short. Want it for small gatherings and parties, but its not a catering hall
@BMitch Just what I do now. The fridge icemaker makes a pile about 2"x4"x8" and I dump that (when I remeber) into a bin in the freezer. It works, but I want a no thought source when the stuff starts to flow.
And besides, what am I going to put next to that bar sink you guys weighed in on?
