beer can upcycles
Hey guys I'm new to this forum. I found it looking around on WoodworkingTalk.com. I'm very big on DIY and will be buying my own home soon, so tons of stuff to post up on here.
Here's a little DIY project I've started working on to keep busy and to not open up the bigger projects I've got planned until we're done moving. Recently acquiring a taste for beer and looking at my recycle bin got me thinking. How can I re-use beer cans and make something cool? Google Image Search gave me a few ideas, but this is what I've come up with so far. The designs started simple and are evolving into more complex designs. The only real cost I have in these is the price of the beer itself. All the wood is reclaimed. The top uses stained pallet wood, the middle is leftover MDF, and the two bottom ones are cutout from a plywood shelf that I took down at work.
Hope you guys like 'em. Currently I'm working on making a Dallas Cowboys star and a mirror, so check back from time to time to see what I've come up with.
