Is someone try to start one of those pools?

I am thinking maybe I should use some of that radioactive glow in the dark paint..

Then I could trace down them stinkers..

I hope no one ever hits it.. It is really pretty flashy and I am presuming very hard not to see..

Wonderful project, Jen and very exciting to see it completed. My belly button has been puckering and unpuckering all day.

Here the post is put up, Mailbox attached and painted..

I still have to make the finial But all in all..


Oh, one of thing. I need to make lighter weights. Or find a smaller rotor..

The rotor was one I had hanging around from playing with the flywheel grinder and I figured I could weave the cables in without doing any permenant damage to the cables.
I've been waiting for this too.
I sure want to see a game cam shot of the idiot's face when he tries a smack at that box. The backfire on his arms as a bat shatters is a bit ticklish You will probably hear his howls as they drive off

If you have a plasma cutter, cut the disk in a crescent moon shape to lighten it up. That would look cool. Paint it yaller.

I am happy to see the finished project. I am not very good at visualizing what something is going to look like from descriptions, so seeing the outcome is often a revelation.
I think that piece of work should last a long time.......nice job.

I can see you have played this out in your mind maybe once to many times.. Kind of gives one a chuckle.. I hope it is never hit by anybody or anything again.. It sits farther back off the road.. It swivels really easy..

If you'd like send me a game cam and I'll set it up..

Thanks.. I was very happy to see it finished as well.

Ah, the next project.. Well I'd love to make a backhoe for the new tractor..

I need to see one up close and personal to see how it's made then I can order up the materials..

Pops, You are on the same path as I was thinking.. Man in the moon would be cool, I was thinking Star, Or whale.. Something along those lines..

I also considered a whirly gig.. Something that spins in the wind on the horizontal..

I don't think I'll be buying a plasma cutter this year. But would be nice to have..

Definitely a cool mailbox. You don't have to worry about seeing another just like it. (Unless one of us decides to copy it.)
