Hi!

Been following your youtube channel for a few years now. Super cool that you got a forum! I'm mainly into arduino projects and 3d printing so will be fun to maybe write about those projects here later on ๐Ÿ™‚

ย 

Did anyone tell you that you look like a young Ioan Gruffudd?

Hello to the round.
I'm always thrilled to see the great videos. There is nothing else to do but to register here. ๐Ÿ™‚
However, it will not come so fast to the presentation of own projects of me.

I'm rather the electronics hobbyist, who because of some private collision at the moment but also for this hardly has time. But that will be better again.
I am looking forward to an open and friendly forum community.

Greetings from Germany

Love the idea of this forum. I'm not that handy, but a lot of tech savvy knowledge. Hopefully I can contribute a bit back through this way and the discord server. And, man, your YouTube video's are always top notch. Always watch them with sparkling eyes as a kid in the candy store.

Ps, Hi /wave

Hi, very nice videos!! Just an idea: What about a camper van conversion video? There is a lot of room for creativity there. I'm sure you would make something super cool.

Dude! That's actually on my to-do list! I've wanted to do a camper van conversion for a long time, and there's so much that can be done with it. I wonder if I should make a category for it on the forum... what do you think?

Hello there!

I think I should introduce myself too...

My name is Luca, I usually go by "lzodd" on the internet. The story behind that username is quite a nerdy one. I initially used "lzeuch" (my first name's initialย  + last name),
but tried a different keyboard layout (DVORAK to be specific, I said it, nerd stuff!) and constantly misspelt my username as "lzodd". Yeah, not super exciting to be honest, but
it is what it is.

So, with that out of the way, let's talk specifics -- I enjoy (almost) everything to do with computers, IT, programming, you name it. I'm by no means a professional,
more of a hobbyist and doing something when-ever I feel like it.

First video from DIY Perks I watched was a few years ago, when the YouTube algorithm was still good at recommending interesting things. Ever since, I've been
subscribed and watch Matt's videos usually to relax (his voice really is ASMR-material!) or get inspired by his awesome work and engineering skills.

I'm interested to see what we, as a community, can do to this forum and hope that it'll nearly explode from our combined creativity and knowledge!

@diyperks If you do, you could try something a little off the wall...

This is 'Doris', our 1968 Dodge A108 'Sportsman' day-van.ย  Kitted with much storage, seating and table (convertable into double bed), fridge, sink and...ย  ablutionary facilities.ย  ๐Ÿ™‚ย  All done in a curvy '60s/faux-art deco style.

Big fans of the channel - you obviously spend a lot of time thinking about the execution of your projects, as well as coming up with some corking 'upcycling' ideas in the first place!

Mark & Lily.

funny, people always say I look like a depressed Matthew Perks who has run out of video ideas.

...I don't see it...

Hi All!

First of all my journey with DIYPerks was a rather... Weird one as I stumbled over the Relaxing False Window video. As much as I managed to get free laptops with LED screens that were no longer used I struggled with soldering everything correctly and never managed to complete that project... But will be attempting it once again (eventually!).ย 

I really enjoy Matts soothing and calm voice as much as the detail and general aesthetics of the video.ย 

Additionally I also dabble in DIY from time to time - more on the resin and wood connections side of things and managed to build my own computer desk for these materials with revision 2 as soon as I can adding more to it!

Hi Everyone!

I'm a Design Engineer base out of Utah, USA. I love all things RC and am in the middle of building an RC Sailboat. I've started a build log here for anyone to follow along.

Hello,

I've been watching for years. I'm a fan of repairing/breaking electronics, and occasionally moding consoles. My next project will be a Wii portable.
