If you like edgy art, have a wierd sense of humor, or just like to live on the wild side... come on in and take a look around. Some of the pictures are adorable and cute, others are outrageous and wierd. So, have fun!
Never throw anything away! That's my motto! And hey, you'll be glad you kept all those 2 liter pop bottles, because today I'm going to show you how to make a raft... one that actually floats... on water... using those empty 2 liter bottles.
Ready? Here ya go!
First you're going to need quite a lot of 2 liter pop bottles - WITH LIDS - very important that they have lids. If you want to "bless" them, you can line them up under a christmas tree. :)
You're also going to need a fair amount of duct tape plus a generous portion of patience. I'm not sure how they got those bottles to cooperate with the tape. But if they can do it - I'm sure you can too.
Looks like they've put the bottles on a piece of plywood, and taped them on. Be sure to get it WELL TAPED! My thinking is, the more tape you use, the better off you'll be. I'm not sure if the yellow tape has "special properties" or not, so get some yellow tape just in case.
Now top it off with an appropriately sized piece of styrofoam. That piece in the picture looks like some kind of ceiling panel. I didn't know ceiling panels were waterproof... so I'm thinking it's got to be styrofoam.
All taped together and ready to go! Clearly, when getting ready to try out your raft, shirts are optional.
Oh Cool! It floats! Check out his paddle... or is it a pole? Notice that the plywood side is the "top" while the styrofoam side is on the "bottom."
When I first saw this series ... I fully expected to see him sinking into the lake at the end. But no... it looks like this thing is actually "sea worthy." How cool is that?
I found these pictures sitting in the My Documents folder in my computer. I have no idea how they got there or where they came from. It must have been a too much tequila not enough rational thinking kind of night. If they shouldn't be here, or if they need a link or a credit, let me know and I'll be happy to comply.
