This, is part 1 of a series entitled, "What to do when scraps are coming out of your butt."
Elongated title: "What to do when scraps are coming out of your butt and you can't park your car or walk through your gay-rage without tripping on a piece of lumber."
This could be a long series, as the scraps are mating and multiplying overnight. Hold on to your pants.
Let's do this!
So, one afternoon while I watched my kids play in the pool/spray each other with the hose/cry/tell on each other, I lazily flipped through a Pottery Barn catalog.
Oh, Pottery Barn, you tease. I just love how I always look past what's for sale and fall in love with the randomly placed extras:
Like all those dominoes up on the window sill. THOSE ARE AWESOME!
Gathered up some of my nast-asty 2x4 scraps,
I mean, clearly, it's the scraps of 2x4's that are the problem in the gay-rage.
And NO, this has nothing to do with the bigger project that got put on hold 'cause I got a full length 2x4 stuck in the table saw.
Now comes the fun part--
I set my saw to cut just a little groove into my piece of wood right down the center, and then using my hand dandy drill and oh, I believe a 3/4'' drill bit, I began making my marks.
Dudes, check it!
How fun is this?! I haven't done a 20 minute crapt in ages. Now, don't worry about the dirtyness of these scraps-- Mr. Sander took care of that.
A little black paint, couple coats of shellac--
Ta Da. What is it with me and oversized gaming pieces??
This is soooo not their final resting place. They're part of a much bigger plan. Muhahahaha.
