Finishing the TV antenna

While I was at my parents, and making my cat annoyer, I also made the backplane to my Home made Digital TV antenna. This is just a reflector for the antenna to give it better gain.

homemade digital TV antenna It’s actually a little short, but I didn’t want to pay the $6 difference for the taller wire mesh.

straight view of the DIY digital TV antenna It needs to all turn white or something, as it’s visually kinda dominating the room.

Looking up at my homebrew digital TV antenna  It needs to be tipped away from the wall a little bit to get the right angle to point towards Chicago to get the towers. It does reject Rockford and DeKalb stations quite strongly though, but alas, that is it’s design.

Cat Food Tray

My cat, Brother, has a habit that drives my wife crazy. He scoops the food out of his feeder, onto the floor and eats it off the floor. Well, some of it.

 

 So I made a cat food tray to put the feeder on top of. It will catch the food and allow us to pour it back into the feeder.

 Not to bad for not taking any measurements. It’s a tad long, but not too bad.

 And he likes it. It’s gonna frustrate him to no end, but he will eat off of it..

marble chess aquarium decoration

I was at a thrift store last weekend, and found this lousy marble chess set for $3.83. Square cut pieces, lots of chips and broken off bits, but it was all there.
I thought it would be perfect in one of my fish tanks.
