Beautiful Floating Wick Candles From Plastic Drink Bottles
Love this idea .. . How would coconut oil work with this? I just thought it would give a lovely soft 'island' scent to the room. Have you added other types of scented oils to the vegetable oil? Maybe lavender, peppermint, etc. depending upon the ambiance one wants to create ... Any thoughts on these ideas please?I'd also like to know how long you'd expect the candles to burn & if you've experimented on the ratios of depth of oil to the length of the wick? Cheers & Thanks, Wendy from Oz .. :)
I built this antenna and I am surprised by the reception. I can't catch anything without it being near a window, but we only have one local channel and we are 50+ miles from New Orleans, LA where all of our channels are located. I tried it in different direction facing windows and caught 23 super clear channels in one at a height of 5ft. I would like to try a weather proof version which I can hang outside with a cable ground block going to a grounding rod or tying in to the house electrical ground. I am thinking about a waterproofing spray such as Flex Seal on the antenna. Does anyone have experience to share about converting this antenna to exterior use? Would a spray on sealer affect reception?
I made this today and right off the bat, with just a 6' piece of coax I picked up 4 channels which isn't bad for the rurals where I live. I'm in a low spot, but I have a line-of-sight view of both towers located at about 3.5 miles and 15 miles away. I need to get an antenna outside and see what I can pull in, but for now, this will get me some television. Thanks!
