The wood (supposed to represent a beach) is only there to hold all the steel parts which is what we care about...
Used the LP40 to split a pipe nipple for the light house. (Yup, that's the fire I was talking about in "Safety".)
Split a smaller nipple, cut a washer in half, blobbed, (oops, I mean WELDED) them together. Voila: lighthouse!
Cut the threads off eye screws, weld, griiiiiind, bend, cut, weld, grind. Voila: anchors!
My daughter has a friend who collects lighthouses. Not full sized, so far. Just little ones. She asked me to make him a coat hanger so here it is. If this involves too much wood to be appropriate here, just tell me.[attachment=2:fi953unh]=lighthouse [640x480].jpg[/attachment:fi953unh][attachment=1:fi953unh]=lighthousestraighton [640x480].JPG[/attachment:fi953unh][attachment=0:fi953unh]=lighthouse anchors.jpg[/attachment:fi953unh]
