Well almost decided to not post these…but when I started my journey on LJ’S it was about documenting my work…big and small…

these are simple little boxes i made out of recycled redwood fencing. They are meant to protect our sprinkler Control units…I made two…

Not too exciting…but Needed…thanks for looking…

I like it. I’ve been meaning to do the same here and insulate against freeze. Looks functional.
Thanks for reminding me… ;0)

Neat idea!

My brother, in Los Gatos, said it is really dry there.

Lew—We usually get 30 inches of rain a year…but
I would be shocked if we have had 10 inches this winter…Los Gatos is in the South Bay…much less rain then we get on the north end…

Nice build Matt.. But is the State going to let you water much lawn? I read where there is a bad shortage of water and everyone has to cut back allot. No grass at our place here on the Island, but we sure do have lots of plants “of all kind” that need water.

Nice Matt. Quick and dirty but functional.

Isn’t it nice to just pick out some scrap wood and throw together something for the house or yard? No complex joinery or bright shiney finishes, just functional and pleasing. Well done Matt.

Simple and effective.

Consider looping the cable up and tacking it to the back so you don’t have tension on the screw lugs.
