We now continue our series of "What to do when scraps are coming out of your butt", part 2, and let me say,
this pile is not going down. I swear.
But. BUT! These fairly simple projects just soothe my soul.
So! I had some leftover 1x8's hanging around from. . .oh. . . maybe the construction of these?
Took my leftover pieces and ran them through Jaws on a 15 degree angle. Why? I wanted a box. Bot not a boxy box. I wanted a nifty trapezoidal box like zees. . .
What the H is it?? A feeding trough! No longer will my children eat inside! I've had it!
No, silly. I have wanted one of those nifty doo-dad wooden boxy thingys for a long time.
Gave it my usual Dark Walnut stain, and 38 coats of poly, and here we are.
Can you see all the possibilities? I have so many plans for this wooden trapezoidal boxy thingy! Flowers! Fall, Thanksgiving, Christmas decorations. . . a centerpiece that changes as much as my 3 year old needs to change his underpants!
And ya know the beautiful thing about planting this late in the season?
Some of my annuals were as cheap as 10¢. Serious.
My centerpiece for outside. This thing is ginormous; it's 6 feet long.
And if I'd have been smart enough, I'd have measured my inside table, and then I'd have known it would hang over by a foot. Arrrr.
Guess that means I'll have to make another one, huh?
