Inexpensive Solar Light Grave Markers

Inexpensive Solar Light Grave MarkersMy wife lost her mother at the end of last year and a buddy of mine lost a infant granddaughter… Made these solar powered grave markers for them to use until the headstones were set in place . The landscape lights are just a few dollars apiece at any big box stores and fully self contained. I just disassembled them then attached to the crosses using lag bolts and a washer. Didn't have the room for the little girls full name to be routed on that cross so I ordered a brass plate to go on it instead. A simple and inexpensive way to show your respect.

Keepsake boxes

Keepsake boxesThis was a simple but sweet project. A friend's family used to gather in a walnut paneled room every day to watch TV, read and talk. There was some leftover paneling stored in their garage. His mother passed a few years ago and his father died this past year. The extra scraps of paneling were kept when they sold the house. He asked if I could build keepsake boxes of whatever design I came up with. He wanted a dozen as Christmas gifts for family members this year. The only criterion was that most of the box had to be made from the walnut paneling. Above are 6 of the boxes drying after a finish was applied.

Table Centerpiece

Table CenterpieceI love how this table centerpiece turned out. This flower center piece is designed for bottles that are 7 1/2” tall. We bought Fever-Tree premium ginger ale drink and used the empty bottles for this project. I burned the wood using propane torch to give it that texture look and than stained it with Minwax gray color. I used the same burning method to make our king size headboard. Find the free plans at TheDIYPlan and enjoy building!
