How to build a set of quilting frames.

I am on social security and do hand quilting in my spare time. I have many quilt tops but I am unable to find quilting frames that are affordable so I can finish my quilts. I know I can find instructions on "how to build" on the internet but I don't have the tools or "know how" to build my own. Is there anyone out there that would be interested or available to build me some quilting frames at a reasonable price? If you live anywhere near the east side of Indianapolis, Indiana I would like to talk with you about this project. My email address is ferrarro@yahoo.com. Thank you

Making or modifying eyeglass frames

Does anyone have any references for how to create or modify eyeglass frames? I have a couple of very hard and nice looking sapphire crystal rounds from very expensive projector lights that I would love to make into a set of hi-tech John Lennin glasses. Any tips? Links? Instructables I missed? I know I could probably cajole an eyeglass place, but want to do this on the super cheap. Thanks!

Trying to cut bike frames ( for physically impaired person ) ?

Hello once again, I've sorta been sneaking around trying to decide what the best way to go about trying to cut ( basically a bike frame ) without doing it manaually and = or spending too much cash I dont have. Welders look like they'd require a high skill level to hold and I cant really hold- or in fact even BE near things- that causes high or noticable rpm , so the hacksaw doesnt seem too great an idea either . But what i was thinking ,was that I could use some of sort of clamp set up so that I didnt have to hold the hacksaw while cutting the frame ( its really a knee walker frame ) If this seems like a good idea or  any one has any other suggestions or ideas that might allow me to do this  , i really appreciate your opnion on the best way I should go. thanks hele

Help! Need to make an **easy** picture frame...

Hey y'all! So I need a bit of help here. I just finished this puzzle and I want to frame it (something I've never done before). I've looked around here and there aren't any frames that would fit a 20.5 inch X 28.5 inch puzzle. I refuse to pay the outrageous costs of custom framing, so unless something magically pops up, I will be building a frame for it. Building frames, building anything for that matter, is not my fortay and I would appreciate any and all tips y'all can provide. Thanks!!

constructing an a-frame, lean-to roof on a garage

I started framing a lean-to, a-frame roof like a deck (with an a-frame "header" and three joist hangers). The joists are angled at about a 45-degree angle and are perpendicular to the garage (on which I hung the header). There will be two 4x4 posts at the end of the 10'x10' roof. When I looked for advice about this framing style, I found nothing. Is this going to be stable? I designed the roof this way because I have 6' reclaimed cedar fence panels that will run down the roof like shingles. Thanks for your help.

Solar Cell Frame?

I am trying to make a somewhat portable solar panel with (3) 3 1/4" x 6" solar cells mounted on a durable fabric, but what I'm wondering is how to mount them. I am thinking of using glass super glue to mount the cells on or sandwitched between two peices of glass and having that sit in a plastic frame to be riveted on the fabric. what I want and haven't been able to find is a low profile license plate type plastic frame that would fit the glass perfectly. I only want to spend around $1 per frame, so custom isn't going to cut it. Does anyone have an idea of a plastic or even aluminum frame that would fit these specifications? Thanks!

Bent Bike Frame

Yeah, so, my brother bought a mid-80s Schwinn World Sport. It's a nice bike. I spent about 10 hours overhauling every piece of that bike. Unfortunately, when I got it all put back together and test rode it, the bike had a nasty pull to the right. Bent Frame. He didn't check that when he bought it (didn't know anything about it, I daresay).  Anybody know anything about repairing a bent frame? The frame's tubes don't seem to be damaged or crimped or dented.  I'm thinking of using a car jack and some straps to straighten it out. Any thoughts?

Need Ideas

This is the first place that popped into my mind when I decided I needed a new idea. I am in a Photography class at my high school and I need help getting some ideas thrown at me. And no, this wouldn't be cheating since I'm not taking your ideas directly. I just think better when there are different ideas flying around. Basically the assignment is to shoot a frame within a frame photograph. Meaning the subject in the picture is framed by something. It doesn't have to be a literal frame, like something out of wood or steel. For example, the subject's face can be framed by their arms and hands. A couple things to keep in mind is no animals, no artwork (as in preexisting), and of course nothing that would be distasteful in a school setting.

Digital Picture Frames & Laptop Screens Question

Hello everyone, I'm new here. I have a question for the more experienced techies here. I have an Acer Aspire 5100 laptop. Now the motherboard is toast, due to a cup of coffee indecent over the laptop. Anyways, I see many instuctables here on converting old laptops into awesome picture frames. So I figured I might as well do something with the screen and whatever parts I have salvaged. I noticed almost every project requires a motherboard. Is there a way to possibly avoid that all together?.. Basically, couldn't I just buy a cheap 7" lcd digital picture frame for $40 that would include a remote, an sd card input and or usb input and some how rewire my 15.4" widescreen lcd monitor from the laptop to work with the brains of the picture frame. Could this be done? Any idea on the wiring needed to be done, or if you might have diagrams that can help me.  Any help on this would be greatly appreciated to be honest. Thanks in advance. -Alex

north woods bed-frame

Attached images are from an ad for Eddie Bauer "North Woods Collection" bedding. I'm interested in the construction of the ?bed? or ?bed-frame? in the images. Is this a solid piece of wood? (if it is it must weigh a ton) or is it something created just for advertising purposes -- i.e., pretty, but not functional? Any suggestions on how something like this might be built? I've looked through all instructables for "beds" and "bed-frames" but can't find anything like this. This would be an outrageously overpriced piece of furniture if purchased at retail. I'm sure someone in the community could suggest a couple of methods for building it. Also, the pictured lamp and bed-table. thanks much from mpls., mn.

Controlling web cam video frame rate from external trigger

I want to control a video camera to capture between 10 and 40 fps using an external trigger that may vary in real time while video is being captured.  I'd also like to be able to control the "exposure" time for each frame of video, and possibly vary it in real time, while video is being captured. Does anyone know if it is possible to control a web cam this way?  Does varying the frame rate in a video affect playback of the video (will it play at all?).  Are there any specific web cams that lend themselves to this sort of control better than others? Thanks!

Creative framing / mounting photos

So I have some photos that I would like to print out and mount similar to the way they are in the attached image. Any ideas or advice on how best to do so? I'd like them to be on solid blocks of wood, and kind of like, sealed in and to the wood. Very sturdily mounted, almost like wheat-pasted. The only thing I've thought of so far was using casting resin, but I'm afraid it would eat thru the ink and paper... Also, any other ideas for mounting and hanging photos that are beyond actual 'frames'?

Unsymmetrical Picture Frame

So I was given these really cool, very colorful tree bark paintings that I cannot wait to get up on the walls!  They have lots of funky neon colors and designs with edges that aren't even which gives them a lot of character!  The only thing though I don't want to put holes in them and stick them on the wall like that.  I bought a regular picture frame just to see how it would look.  Doesn't really work.  There's space between the edge of the picture and the picture frame and just takes away the natural feel to it.  I've been wanting to make picture frames out of sticks or something but just can't figure out how to make them "trap" the picture.  Not really looking to have glass in front of it either.  Any wear on them would just make them look more natural.  Maybe I should seal them so they don't fade if I don't want glass in front of it.... Hmm.... Anywho, if anyone has any suggestions, they are all greatly appreciated!  Thanks!

Metal T-Frame Basics

Hi there, I'm new here and pretty much to DIY in general (except for general repairs) - I'm planning to build a glass dry-wipe board with a simple aluminium T-Frame and need a bit of basic advice. Not knowing the lingo of the trade, its been very hard to find suppliers/information and my research seems to have gone as far as it will ever get, so I figured it was time to ask for some help. I've managed to find a supplier who stocks 25mm square al tubing and was wondering about the best way to construct the frame. My design for the frame is extremely simple - it's just a t-frame with a single crossbar which will run below the pane of glass. I have access to a reasonably well equiped workshop, but unfortunately no welding gear (I hear that al is difficult to weld anyway) which isn't too much of a problem as I would like to be able to deconstruct the frame. I would appreciate any tips which may be useful to a newbie, but mainly I need to know how to fix the al bars at right angles in a non-permanent manner. The desk which I'm sitting at right now has some sort of threaded inserts at the end of each crossbar, allowing it to be bolted a right angles to the frame. I tried googling these inserts, but couldn't find anything which seemed relevant. If anyone could point me in the direction of these inserts or provide an alternative solution, it would be very much appreciated. Thank you

Making a digital picture frame without a working motherboard :-(

So...my iBook G4 died a couple of months ago. At first, We Fix Macs thought it was a (known) logic board problem, but it turns out the motherboard is dead. I've recovered my hard drive, and have the carcass at home. Everything works fine except that it won't boot, or won't stay running once booted.Is there a reasonably inexpensive way to hook up an image player (like an MP3 or other thumb-drive type of thing) directly to an LCD display? Most of the digital photo-frame projects involve restructuring the components of a functioning laptop.I'm not about to try to get this done in time for Christmas, but for my wife's birthday (March) it'd be kind of cool.

There's a big hole in the center for the tongue jack post, and three bolt-hole in a triangle around it. But what are the hole diameters and positions? P.S. I've gone through an hour or so of Google searching, and called three different "manufacturers." There are lots of trailer plans on the Web, but they're for-sale.

Feedback-Clarinet Bike Concept

Not sure which forum this would fit into most effectively so I placed it here. I have quite a significant number of junk clarinets and I am looking to make/decorate a bicycle with them. It would clearly not be safe to make the frame from clarinets so I was thinking Id build it off of an old, black frame. The question comes down to construction. I am not sure how I would go about doing it. The inside of a clarinet is too narrow to slide down a bike's frame even if you could get it there. I considered drilling out the middle then cutting it in half in an attempt to affix it to the frame, but Im not sure. The other consideration was to remove all the metal pieces from a clarinet and attach them to a black frame in a manner reminiscent of clarinets. I also considered a variety of accessories, reed themed basket, clarinet-bell horn, etc. Any thoughts on the concept, additional ideas and/or ideas about the construction. Thanks!

Any ideas on how to make this giant photo frame?

Hi! I'm slightly obsessed with this giant photo frame (see attached). I'm pretty sure it's just a concept / one-off, and it's not something I'd be able to afford anyways, so I'm considering how to DIY it. I've got some good ideas for the outer frame rim, but I can't come up with a way to make the huge back plate and matt that would look nice and not be too heavy. For the backplate I could probably use posterboard or 3mm MDF, but I'm not sure of how to join two or more sheets together that won't significantly add to the weight. At this size there will also be some serious stability issues - it'll need some sort of cross bracing. For the matt, I think I could maybe just use nice cardboard and cut the picture holes by hand, carefully lining up adjacent sheets. Proper matt material I think would be way too expensive for something that size. Any ideas? Thanks Alex
