Too much time on my hands

#1 Post by Hairtrigger » Fri Jul 05, 2019 5:06 pm

Here is a project that I should have thought of years ago, a few days ago I was in a big box home-improvement store and saw some LED lightbulbs that look like a candle flame. I have no idea why I did not think of adapting these lanterns to 110 V earlier

About 10 years ago when my father retired from farming I found these two lanterns in a corner of the barn and rescued them from the scrap hopper. Are used a shop vac to get the loose dirt off but never cleaned them up in anyway.

I am quite pleased with the results today

Very cool. I also like the background.

When I started my gun room I wanted the back wall to look like you are approaching a cabin as you are walking through the woods

The 3-D camo hanging from the ceiling and the camouflage paneling on the walls are kind of a start but not really everything I was hoping for. I would love to find some Astroturf for the floor

Cool. You guys have no idea how badly I want to retire so I can do things like this.

Nice job Hairtrigger. I've got a couple of lanterns with rust holes in their bottoms that could still be useful for something like this.
