Brilliant. Would doing this in red preserve night vision?
With that issue in mind, I ordered a low out put version.
Also the option to place fewer lights in there is always open.
The string, as many LED strings, is cuttable about every 3 lights and can be easily soldered into many configurations.
15 surplus military antenna mast poles, some paracord, and my Warbonnet Blackbird hammock.
Not "made" but restored/modified. Post for it HERE.
It's a 1950 International Harvester fridge and holds three homebrew (surplus pepsi) kegs.
love the IH's. when I made mine, I looked everywhere for an IH out here, but they are pretty scarce in this part of the country. the only one I came across had no compressor or cooling lines.
I'm guessing you're not married..................
Why, your wife doesn't let you build blanket forts in the living room anymore?
Ready for delivery.
here's a few things i've made around the house lately.
a hutch and booze cabinet, floor lamp
dinning room table
more bookshelves and another lamp
It's very hard (impossible) to read read lighting in red light. If you look a a pilots chart, you will notice that none of the writing is in true red. Now this might not be important for a tank bag light when finding stuff, unless it's small and red, or has instructions or writing in red.
No, I have a throw pillows on the couch and a purple wall because I just love interior deocrating.
Yes, I'm married. My wife actually tested out the stand first (see below). She's cool like that. There's a reason I married her. Not sure why she picked me though.
Also, it's not to be used in the house with any frequency. It was freezing and raining outside that day, and I was anxious to put it together. Mainly built because our only two trees in the yard are two large oaks 50' apart. This will allow me to hang in the yard without having to put any poles in the ground, plus have freedom to setup inside for a quick nap!
Wow nice work.....you take orders????
not really, its pretty much an expensive hobby. 92 feet of steel in that cabinet!
couple pics of the lamp
Nice, I love the bare steel & timber look. I'd like to make myself a bedside lamp in a similar style to your floor lamps one day. What do you use for a finish on the steel?
on the lamps, i have a decent supply of rusted steel. i attack it pretty hard with an angle grinder with a wire brush head, then clear coat with rustoleum clear spray paint.
On the other stuff, an angle grinder with a 60 grit flap disc works great
Finally done....played through it tonight. Sounds great!
I made a fireplace gate for a client a few years back that would go well in your house!
Is that alder?
Is it stained or natural?
I like the color.
Thanks! They wanted rustic alder with no knots.
It is stained "maple" with General Finishes oil-based stain.
Beautiful work....always loved the mix of steel and wood. Amazing.
