This was a “just for fun” project. It was made mostly from scraps around the shop; some 3/4” plywood, a one by four, a few oak pieces, some 1/4” hardboard scraps, a chunk of 1” pvc pipe, and some hardware. I’ve made a youtube video if your interested.

That’s really cool Derek.
Love it.


-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

Looks like fun. Great paint job
Unfortunately I live in Oregon, the first state to start recycling of drink cans but the worst place to do it.
Here we have to feed each can, uncrushed, into a reverse dispenser machine so it can read the bar code. So if we want our money back we have to keep the cans pristine. Even worse because not enough were being recycled, probably because it is such a pain to do, they just raised the deposit from 5 cents to 10 cents thinking it will create an incentive….only for the street vagrants. I just love progressive bureaucrats )-:
