A while back I wondered if some of us would ever post some project that wasnt a “work of art.” And I do find so many of the projects to be just that, wood “ART.”
This thing i made out of a bucks worth of Home Depot scrap, took all of an hour and a half to throw together, and it LOOKs it, but its pure FUNCTION. A neighbor mentioned to me that he will be putting on a small fireworks display this July 4, and he didn’t want to light the stuff on the ground or risk one of his wife’s small tables. Could i help him out. After seeing the sawhorses posted here the other day, i came up with this monstrosity.
Its going to be used at night so no one will even see it, and possibly disposed of afterwards, so scrapwood fit the order of the day, The front and side bracing make it stable and the angle-ended legs can be hammered into the ground for extra stability. The motars are fixed to the table so they can be reloaded, and the empty pill containers hold the roman candles so he need not light in his hand. The center offers space for multi-shot “cakes” and fountains. Now, who predicted rain next Wed?
Wishing all a happy, safe and sane, healthy Forth of July.
