It always seems we always have those scraps that just aren’t big enough for the current project, but we KNOW have some potential for a project on down the road. I have a LOT of those. Old crates I have salvaged—gotta keep the oak and maple separate from the lowly pine. Small pieces that will make great oxes with the proper coaxing. You know the drill.
Anyway I got the idea from one of those tips and tricks things we all check out. This si my version. I joined three 2×4s with one 2×3 to get the 13 inch base for the 12 inch cobcrete tube. I resawwed a 2×4 to get the outside support and drilled a hole at about 45 degrees so the screw would secure teh tube to the wood base.
Maybe it is a bit of overkill, but that is just me….LOL
I will make some soon using the 8” tubes for smaller pieces.
