    I haven't done it yet, but my plan is to cut ovals out of quarter-inch plywood. I intend to put them inside the base end of the "arms" with just a little gap between the plastic and the wood on the curved edge. Then I intend to fill the concave side of each branch with Great Stuff, using enough to puff up and round out the back, and also making sure some works in between the plywood and the plastic at the bottom. (The face I'll try just filling as is.) That will securely glue the wood to the...

    I was just LOOKING for your repainted dead guy. LOL I remembered you had done that. Thank you for posting the photo. I always enjoy your photos. I think we have a similar eye on the indoor decor.

    A misadventure (being stuck in traffic on 80 West, thus a missed doctor's appointment for my son) led me to FINALLY being in an area with a Home Goods. I echo an earlier poster about how DIFFERENT the merchandise is in each store! I wound up in Williamsport, PA. They had the merchandise all over the store. I mean ALL OVER the store. I understand that from a marketing standpoint (I think), but I feel I probably missed things. Which is kind of a bummer since I only had this one shot at...

    @J-Man. I sent a private message to you however, not sure that it went to you. It appears it went to JMan2(?). I don't know if that's you or not. It appears this person had not logged in since 2004. So, I hope that you stumble back onto this thread and can offer some advice. Here was my message: Thanks for your comments on my LED thread. I went ahead with your recommendation to use the 1W star LED's for my spot lights. I used a resistor with each LED rather than the LED driver. The...

    It's really difficult to say, because not setting fruit (or aborting set fruit) is the way the plant reacts to almost any source of stress. If some condition or conditions aren't right, it will drop the fruit and try again later. So that can mean it's too dry, or too wet, too hot or too cold. Could mean the soil is too alkaline, or too compacted, fertility is too low, or there's too much Nitrogen. Insect pest can cause fruit not to set, and so can a lack of pollinator insects. I realize...

    At least if that happens, the wound will be cauterized! I tried the Dremel last year. It worked tolerably well, but not as smoothly as I'd have liked. This year I'll go with my hot knife. It looks like the way to do it.

    This is just my opinion. I bought amber spotlights and was very excited to use them. However, I found it... disappointing. I don't know why. I am brand new to using any kind of spot lighting. I had just purchased regular outdoor spotlights and those spotlight bases with the ground stakes. It was just... very boring. I did purchase a couple of the blue and green LED spotlights at Spirit for in a little cemetery and LOVED them!!

    I just couldn't get into it. It's the same old same old just with new people and in a city. I did find the concept of seeing 'it happen' ( normal life as we know it ending) interesting. I guess sometimes too much of a good thing is just too much. I will watch. I just neither loved nor hated the first episode.

    If you are referring to the two that I posted; I made them out of 1" blue foam. Don't want to hijack this thread so I will try to do a tutorial in the coming weeks.

    Good start, but go crazy with it. Mist the entire column with plain water, then use a soft 2" brush and fling your staining tea at all the edges and under the overhangs. Let it splatter where it may, then mist again to get it to run more if it is not already. Dab at places you want heavier streaks like below cracks and holes. Start out with black tea stain, then add a little brown, and maybe some green. Once it dries do it again. I find I get a better effect with multiple layers.

    I'm afraid it's pretty hit or miss finding a good sized cage. You might find it easier to make one, as Bethany suggested. Another possibility, though also hit-or-miss, would be to contact a bird rescue group if there's one in your area. They might put you in touch with someone with an extra cage, or they might rent an unused cage to you for a couple weeks if you offer to make a donation to the rescue. All it should take to find out is a couple searches and emails. Good luck!

    Thanks so much! It's a little hard to tell with the camera's perspective, but it did flare at the muzzle. In the interest of keeping the work simple, I used a plastic flowerpot for that-- much easier than stacking sheets of foam and turning them on a lathe! The pot's bottom diameter was the same as the PVC pipe I used for the bore. The whole thing was actually a lot less difficult than I'd anticipated. Part of that came from the fact that I spent a couple weeks kicking ideas around before I...

    It was pretty fun! His wife told me that when he was getting used to firing it not long after he made it, he put too much powder in and tried to fire some candy. It caught on fire! Having little melting sugar fireballs falling out of the sky must have been exciting! (No one got hurt, and no fires were started.)

    Stopped by to say I love the rotted pumpkin head candy holder you're making - the icky rubber "throat" will be great - very unsettling to feel when the kids put their hands in! Also the spindly legs on your spider really ups the arachnophobia creep-out factor. Very cool.
