Oil Drums

Makin' a batch of oil drums.

Start by eating tuna. I like the little 3-pack size cans:

Glue them together. I put sand in the bottom one for weight & cut a circular piece of styrene & glue on top.

Use styrene to make caps & prime

Next, I'll weather & add drips & waterproof vinyl stickers.

Well, I know what I'm having for lunch now.

Nice little tutorial sir.

Thanks, you'll learn to hate tuna.

... every once in a while I get a strange request for an oil drum. This one came from weirdo from another planet.

Stupendous... these are the tutorials I love.
I know exactly where I need to try this, and Dolphin meat makes it even better!

Thanks guys! Glad you liked the Oil can thingie. I can't claim the idea for myself, got it from a guy on RCC forum, he was using potted meat which I'm not much of a fan of and I think this size tuna can looks best. Over the last 3 years, I've eaten a lot of tuna.

Here are some of the latest ones mixed in with some of my past favorites, I try to do something different each batch.

I put them out in the rocks in the spring & leave them out all summer. The waterproof vinyl sticker paper is key for wear and tear. my first batch, I didn't put sand in the bottom & they get blown over easy.

Glad you like 'em Richard... I like your toolbox sticker.... peg board needs some needle files.

Are those Crayons I see? Richard, you should make an "I spy" book.

P.S. Cwalring Aficiando is working on a belated issue... We need to beef up our legal defense department first though.

Thanks for all the nice can comments fellers.

imthattunaguy, your tube has to go through customs and although I didn't put any cans in, I did send some tuna. It smelled very fresh when I mailed it... let's hope those fur trappers I sent it up river with don't get into it.

Thanks Mister Doug. I saw them coming up the street this morning on my way to work.
