Last week Blondie insisted I go outside and play as she was cleaning the house for her Big B Day Party. Well after 110 guests this past weekend, all is done and everything went well. The caters, bartenders and all the planning went off w/o a hitch. The weather was perfect.
I got this idea from fellow Lumberjock, Trackman a while back. I knew that I had to make these with my welder I bought last yr. This was a good filler project for the day, so Blondie could clean and I wouldn’t be in the way or messing things up behind her.
I epoxied the items on the base and sprayed with Shellac. The boys went nuts when I gave them out. Now they all want them….I guess that is the best compliment us wood-workers can receive.
I bought the bolts, springs and Allen wrenches at Cal Aero by the pound. I then started cutting and welding. Lightly sanded with my 90* die grinder and painted gray. I made the Base’s out of Blue Oak from Ex-Lumberjock Rob, who owns Tule Peak Timber saw mill. Ran them through my router table and drum sander.
Hope you like them, and all comments welcome.
