    Pretty good turnout, hope everyone has a great year!
  2. Its crunch time!

    General Halloween
    I've been building the fence that I stole from Herman Secret, among others. I started with like 17 panels to build, with 15 posts or something, it's starting to blend together. It's paying off because its looking awesome! But I'm just hoping the light at the end of the tunnel isn't a...

    No prob, they're a lot of fun, and look great. I found that if you string lightweight fishing line in the general shape of the web that you want to make, then just coat the line, it looks awesome, and saves a bunch of time .

    I have a 125 psi porter cable from home depot. The smaller you have, the more you have to wait for it to cycle and rebuild pressure. You can get a huge one and it would work fantastic, but with a little patience you can use pretty much any commercial grade compressor, and save some money.

    General Halloween
    If you missed it last year, the price came down like it did before. It's on Amazon, we got one last year, it was a blast. I used it when it was like 45, or 50 outside. It was too cold, came out a little gloppy, but it worked. If you don't have a large compressor with pretty strong recovery you...
  6. West coast haunters convention

    General Halloween
    It's official, the convention is moving to the big city(Portland Or). It's sad in a way, I always felt happy that the school for the deaf in Salem always got the exposure in the press, and I'm sure income from having the convention there. But for us it's way closer, and will be easier to attend...
  7. Please help me convince my husband to make a new gate next year!

    General Halloween
    Spookilicious mama is a genius, I love the way she thinks, and she is absolutely correct. BUT, if you could re-build the gate,OR build a fence and more of the shorter columns to complete the perimeter of the yard, which would you pick? If I spend all of my time on re-building, the rest of it may...
  8. What is wrong?

    General Halloween
    Once it's over, and put away, we start critisizing last years stuff, and figuring out how to improve it. I'm all for putting it out of mind until spring or so. But take notes in a notebook or something, so you can easily go back and make your tweaks. Our problem is that we have the west coast...
  9. Please help me convince my husband to make a new gate next year!

    General Halloween
    Ok, 3/4 of the height of the columns, with an arch, I could definitely get onboard with. This all started because she wanted them as tall as the columns, and just a simple arch to the gate itself. I think it would be a little boring, I used the pattern I did because I thought it looked better...
  10. Please help me convince my husband to make a new gate next year!

    General Halloween
    Dear haters,(kidding) I'm ok with the idea of adding to the bottom of it, I will probably re-do though because I wanted to do a row of circles in the middle of it anyway, I just ran out of time so I rushed it a little. But whatever you do don't tell bootoyoutoo that I said that.

    We've been saying we were going to do one of these for years, hope it looks 50% as good as yours. The lighting is awesome, as well as the rest of it of course.

    Nice, I am jealous of the fence, it's really itching at me to start one for next year. I got a bunch of 3/4 PVC for free, but I think 1/2" would be better. I like your toppers too, it looks great.
  15. Your cemetery.

    General Halloween
    I agree, love the lighting, and your ahead of me on the killer entrance. The fence panels look great too.
