    Default Snowflake makin

    Well...after seeing the prices of wireframes I figured I could give it a try on my own to see if I could save some cash now and in the future...I have a pig cooker that always needs a tack weld here or there anyway. I bought some 42" Philips LED snowflakes last year with the intent of using them this year, but didn't realize they were twinkling lights, which doesn't suit my needs on the roof. So I surfed the internet and found a design over at PC and welded my first of 4, 4' snowflakes....this weather in Wilmington is FLIPPING HOT!

    Welds aren't the prettiest all the way round, but I was getting the knack of it by the last weld ~ Bad thing...we practically GAVE AWAY a NICE welder from work a few years back because it was in the way....if I'd only known! I will dig some lights out of storage and post up a pic lit when I get a chance...

    Maybe It just need some smoothing out on welded spots and some nice white paint? I think that would do it.
    2010 Goal: To build a 20ft artificial christmas tree in my front yard like this. http://www.commercialchristmas.com.a...ee_20ft_6m.jpg
