The stuff is called Glaze Coat (By Famowood) purchased from Lowe's. This stuff is actually Epoxy Coating, not clear acrylic as previously stated. My bad. I found it by the stains and varnishes.

I'm going to give this a try, as soon as I find some cheap USB sticks that I don't mind breaking if it all goes wrong.  I found some squeezy Marvel character toys that I'm going to cut the heads off, stick the USB stick inside and glue a lid inside the head.  Cheesy

Very cool. Make sure you post some pics of your finished product. I would love to see them. Good luck.
FYI, I usually get my flash drives from newegg.com. They have some good prices for drives.

Just what I have been looking for.  Have you ever used cross stitch items with the acrylic?  Just wondering how they would work out.

Never tried any type of fabric. I take that back. I did try some fabric small button flowers, and they turned out pretty good. I tried some old bottle caps for Christmas and those were awesome too.

Thanks. It's the twisted little things that just make me smile.
6  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Truck Hitch Cover on: October 03, 2008 04:07:55 PM
I recently purchased a new truck. Well, it isn't exactly NEW, but it is new to me. The truck came with a heavy duty trailer hitch. Immediately after seeing the square hole in the back, my mental gears started turning. You see them everywhere, those store bought trailer hitch covers. There are tons out on the market ranging from boat props and dancing deer to simple sport team logos. Well, I wanted something different, so I made my own. And this time of year is the perfect time to find those oh so special items.

I made my first hitch cover with my favorite horror movie killer Jason (we have to stick together). With a simple nut and bolt through the chest and into the hitch plug, you have a one of a kind hitch cover. I even installed a camera on my plate to see when people get too close. Everyone wants to get an up close look at this guy.






Next, in keeping with the items found during Halloween season them, I wanted something to slip over those plain old trailer hitch balls. I wanted a hand and so be it, I got one. I had to put some wood dowels in the outer finger to keep them more in an upright position. Then, I used some fishing line and a needle to thread through the hand to keep the fingers down and in the position I wanted. Yeah, some other hand gestures came to mine, but the cops around here don't like that. In the mean time, THROW UP YOUR ROCK HAND. Party on.




Thanks for looking and enjoy.

Lol I really like the pun going on. It may be more ironic if you used a thumb, though... but then you wouldn't be able to give your friend "the finger" Wink

Thanks. I actually made every finger of the hand, from thumb to pinky, I just chose to show one. The thumb one does look great though.

oh sweet! I want one with a big huge gold ring on it, that so BAD AZZ!

I like that idea. Maybe I need to bling them out some. That would be sweet.

Thanks to everyone for looking (and the few of you who have actually responded to it). So stay tuned, more creations are always finding their way out of my workshop.

Halloween is my favorite holiday and it will be here before you know it. My usb flash drive mod obsession is always on my mind. Put these two statements together, and you get my latest creations. Is it possible for something to be both cool and creepy? I think so. With some Halloween fingers, usb flash drives, hot glue, and a hot knife, you too can give some geek "The Finger". Enjoy

I love it. This is definitely something I would have done. In fact, I may go ahead and make one in the back yard now. Next, I have to break out the old trusty shovel and start digging a lake around it. Anyway, awesome job and "This Rocks".
