We are now settled somewhat, and I am anxious to start blogging! Moving shows one what kind of refurbishing needs done,
like these snowmen, which my husband made over 25 years ago.
The snowmen are made with treated landscaping timbers, and they can be any height you choose.
The hat brim is made from a piece of 1 inch pine board cut into a circle with a hedge or oak tree post for the top.
The nose, a dowel rod, is sanded/ground to a point.
The base is a 2 x 6 inch base.
The bottom base and post are put together with a lag screw. The longer the post the longer the lag screw needs to be.
The top part of the hat, the tree post, is put on with a lag screw to the hat brim. The hat then is tacked on with nails. You can see one of the nails in the picture below.
