Christmas Decoration

I was taking down my Christmas decorations last week and decided to post pictures of a Decoration that I made.  This was made for my son’s house.  I got a picture off the web of a similar decoration.  I traced it out on 3/4″ MDF and cut it out with a sabre saw.  That was the easy part.  To paint it I first put 2 coats of shellac on it to try to seal it since it would be outdoor.  Then I proceeded to paint the details  I used a combo of Rust-Oleum exterior latex paints as well as gloss exterior house paints.  You can have small samples of the house paint mixed at your local big-box store so you won’t have to buy a whole gallon.

To hold it in the ground I used some 1/2′ conduit  pipe and a few U-clamps on the back.  If you want to make your own feel free to use the above picture to make a pattern.  Good Luck.

Batman vs The Riddler

Batman OrnamentOK.  This is the last post of Christmas Ornaments for the Year.  I made this one with my son in 1995 when Batman Forever came out. Again it was cut from Luan plywood.  It was cut out as two separate parts and then strung together with some fishing line.  Finished off with green and black paint it was the perfect ornament for 1995.

Google Birdhouse

Google Bird House1I have been a little bored lately and decided that I wanted to make something fun but easy.  Somehow I settled on a Birdhouse.  So I looked through a pile of old plans as well as doing an image search for “funny birdhouses” and eventually stumbled upon an image of a birdhouse shaped like a Google Map icon.
