head in a jar prank
6 wrist watch survival hacks
This was a great project. Had lots of fun with this. I have a huge pile of scrap wood laying about with little to no use. So this was perfect. I plan on making a few for xmas gifts and what not. I used Minwax waterbased color stains and then a silver spray paint for the 9 on front. The 9 is 1/2 inch plywood that i cut out with a jig saw. - jay15136

That's a really smart idea. Please share a picture of your results!
Good idea! You should try it and show us the results!
Problem is that inner beaker will try to float, a lot! You will need lead weights in inner beaker. - bpark1000
How about a bit of fluorescent dye and a UV LED ? - JK2001
I'f like to try taking my picture through a window with my nose pressed up flat against it. Then when the picture is submersed it'll look like my nose is squished into the jar! - LaurenLaLa
Awesome!! - LaurenLaLa
Those bold colors really stand out, I love it. Thanks for sharing your build!
Yes! I was on my front porch thinking of that yesterday. I have these hooks used for hanging baskets on the front porch. I was thinking of creating an object to hang from them; just a big block of concrete with holes and green stuff growing out of them. So imagine a square, insert a large foam globe (like the ones at Michaels); you know the hard stuff for flowers. I would use foam inserts from packing to form channels and hopefully the concrete would harden around them. In the end it would be kind of like a concrete square with a tesseract (generally) interior. I would fill it with a sphaghum and dirt mix for a ferns-moss to grow. I am still trying to figure how I would mold it though, especially to keep it light. If adding the interior stuff to it makes it to heavy, it might be cool, just to have it empty inside and have it make fluted-wind noises.
I have made several pieces now. My first attempt was using really, really old concrete. It took forever to set and I had no idea why. I researched and discovered that concrete has a shelf life! The work I did though was not in vain; the blocks I made formed a very compact form but easily crumbled. I used those inside other things I made. Then I was able to pick it out and have a perfect cube deep inside a container. After going to Lowes and getting fresh concrete, my next effort was successful. I have other pieces in the process of setting and drying and I'll add those to the image gallery as I go along. Thanks.
I made 2 of oak and 2 of pine just to see how the different wood would respond to the rasp. I love the look of oak and how the handles look. By the way they never made it to the cabinets as planned, my wife took them for a project she has going.
Great stuff! Please keep us posted on your results. Do you have a specific project to make in mind with concrete?
