1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Re: My boyfriend is a redneck and I need help for Christmas! on: December 13, 2004 11:46:48 AM
A truck toolbox is something my own redneck man lusts for.  You can get the really nice kind that goes accross the bed of the truck and bolts down, or the kinds that sits in the bed but is waterproof so their tools that they insist on bringing everywhere with them don't get rusted.

John Wayne movies on DVD.

The most popular redneck gift when I lived in Oklahoma was Beer Of The Month club.  Yes, for real!

How about a coloring book and a set of toddler friendly crayons each...they have the thick ones and also the ones that fit over the finger so you just draw with your finger.  You could do that for a dollar or two each kid if you shop at Big Lots or a dollar store!

Another set of drum sticks is always useful!

Lots of music magazies have posted lists for the world's best drummers.  You could google search them and then make some Mix CDs of some of their best work for him!

First of all, love the project!  I love celtic knotwork...thats a great idea!

I think the stuff you mean is called thread conditioner...you can get it in the beading department of Michaels over with the tiger tail and beading thread and stuff.  I've never used it on embroidery floss, but it is a lot less goopy than using wax.  Might be worth playing with!

What a great idea....I think you have come up with a new art niche...kind of like the guy that does the portraits of people with license plates...too cool!

Thanks y'all!  And next time my friend is over with her digi cam I will take pics of the legs and how they are bolted in....I had my husband pick the screws and stuff since that is his A.O. but it isn't complicated!

You frame a square of wood underneath the table top...then I drilled through that and through the legs and screwed in through both....not as pretty but VERY VERY sturdy.  The legs arn't vintage, but they were pretty ragged...I found them in my friend's garage.  I had to trim a bit off them and sand them some and clean them up ALOT.  Then I used the same stain and poly on the legs that I used on the top.

I posted this in my blog a trillion years ago and people kept asking me if I had posted it on Craftster yet.  I needed a new kitchen table badly (I have a gorgeous old one that belonged to my grandparents that was too small for my family, so I refinished it and use it as my craft desk) but couldn't find the size I need (wide enough that my kids can't kick each other and long enough to work on crafts at one end and still have room to eat dinner at the other).  Finally gave up and built my own for under 50 bucks.  Premade legs,  Big piece of wood routed along the side (Home Depot will do this for you).....stain and a trillion coats of poly.


People ask me about the funky hutch in the picture too...it is a junk furniture store find (the hutch and base didn't actually belong together).  Base coat of cream, and then I did a peeling paint red top coat over it to match my red Ikea table chairs!

Great idea!  I've only done the beaded hair combs where I string teeny tiny beads on teeny tiny wire and go out of my teeny tiny mind!  I love your way much better!
