  1. We have had a sleigh and several reindeer made from plywood for several years now, bought them at a garage sale so no idea how old they really are. The sleigh hasn't weathered very well so I needed to make a new one. I also wanted to make it easy to take apart and put together so we can store it indoors. The old one was all screwed together. We started with a sheet of exterior grade plywood and one of the old sleigh sides as a pattern. Which became a couple of these: And then this: I think the inspector approves First coat of primer on everything, a couple coats of white paint to come:
  2. Cars and trucks and hockey. I spend a good bit of time working on my wife's 454SS pickup that is heavily modified. Been working on her 'new' car a bunch, it's a 1995 Caprice wagon that is now her daily driver. One day I will get back to working on my 1976 Olds Cutlass S... We attend a bunch of car/truck show and events up and down the East Coast. We did the Hot Rod Power Tour in June. Just got back from the Truck Nationals in Carlisle, Pa this weekend. We also share season tickets to the Carolina Hurricanes.
  3. The pictures are still there. They probably have Imgur blocked...
  4. I had the same issue with our lights every now and again. I would head out in the morning and some of the lights would be on dimly. Since I added a shutdown sequence no more issues with it. I run S4.
  5. Along the lines of what Santas Helper said, maybe add a 1/2 second to the length of the sequence and have everything blank/off. You could also run a shutdown sequence with a short blank sequence to be sure everything of off at the end of the show/night.
  6. I can't find any pics of the bare stands at the moment... basically there are three Tees and short sections of 1/2" pvc to make the base and end caps on the legs. Then a long piece of 1/2" pvc for the vertical in the middle. I like that you have two channels in your so you can make the flame flicker! Here is a pic of a couple in the display:
  7. We have the NOEL candles as well. A couple years ago I built PVC pipe stands for them. This also allowed us to light the entire candle with LEDs inside. The center pipe runs about half way or so into the flame part. I did not glue the parts together, just friction fit. I think the light string is a 60 count...
  8. Earle are these regular store bought LEDs or commercial grade?
  9. pickings were very slim around here after Christmas as well... we are slowly upgrading to the professional sealed LEDs. They are quite a bit more expensive but should hold up much better as well. http://www.holiday-light-express.com is a good source and where we have lights from and will be getting more from them. They have a great warranty on the lights also! We had to have a bunch replaced and it was no problem at all and it was our fault that the lights went bad...
  10. I had a few strings that were half out like that, so I cut them up and connected the good parts together... then kept the remaining good bulbs as spares.
  11. We found this last night next to our sign at the street: 🆒
  12. We didn't have anything new this year, just added more lights to some props. Our mini trees went from 150ish lights each to about 700 lights each! I did get a bunch of the mini strobes but they never made it out into the show. Mainly due to the weather, lots of rain this year.
