Yes, these are my two favorites. /diy/hard rolls nicely, but mac/diy/ver is actually related, so I'm pretty sure that's the one that's going to become common, though it is a little long.

Now look here, /diy/hards has a badass ring to it, han/diy/men probably fits the board a little better, and /diy/nosaurs, while sounding very nice, is just completely unrelated to the board, plus /fit/'s mascot is a dinosaur.
