Cemetery Columns Project

9874 41
I've been working on my cemetery columns for quite some time now. I built the frame and put the styrophome on in March, then I had a baby on March 27th and I'm now getting back into it. I worked very slowly since I was so big and I got tired quickly, but it kept me busy and my mind occupied while waiting for Xavier to come. I did the initial building in the basement and now that it is much nicer out I've moved them to the garage.

Here are pictures of the framing and such.




I'm in the process now of doing some routing, and adding some aging. I'll post more photos tomorrow. I'm also going to get some drylock tomorrow.

Well, congratulations again on the little one. My wife is due in about 4 weeks. She can totally relate to "working slowly because she's so big".

The columns are looking great! I'm attempting to paint and age some stuff this week, so please post lots of pics!

Nice work 13, looking good. Looking forward to watching your build progress! Congrats on the little one, I know my 19-month old makes working on my projects fun, now that she's able to get dirty with me!

Thanks TK421, I hope your wife isn't to tired, only 4 more weeks to go. I bet you guys can't wait.

These suckers are 6' x 2'1.5". I was afraid I wasn't going to get them out of the basement, but they just fit. =)

I have to wait now till Monday to see if the Drylok I ordered come in or not. It was supposed to be here today. =( At least I still have some more routing to do.

I'm planning on putting shelves on the front with some PVC flicker candles on them (got those done). Something like what Eerie did on his.

More pics to come later today.

Rereading through it's funny to read the appreciation for cracks that we all have! Only a group such as us could appreciate a good crack! Now seeing this we could have a rush on new members as the plumbers guild may find us to be an appreciative group! lol!

Updated photos

I have a few photos to show my progress. Let me what you think.

All the construction is done on them, here shows how they will look with the candles on them (idea from Eerie). The cord will be going through the column so you won't see it.



Here's one of the columns with two coats of Drylok. On the other colmn the black outline is where my sign will be going.



Here's a closer look.



Of course I still have aging painting to do.
