The Barstool will be next- gotta find more signs! Hmmm... (sneaks on off down the road)

I was trying to think of an idea for some plumbing pipe... and I was
going to do a table with a tray and do mosaic tile... but then I was
looking around the garage and it came to me! A stop sign! So I simply
mounted it to a piece of plywood and mounted that to a flange fitting
and mounted that to the pole- I have a bar height table for the porch!
Now if you do this remember to get your stop sign legally- they do sell
them. Don't take one of the corner of the street! Bad Junkers!

Great table Rob.

Love it! Very, very cool junk you got there.

junkermidge writes: Somebody might stop you, but it certainly won't me. I love your knack for recycling items and this is probably my favorite so far. Been meaning to try something similar with a square orange sign, but it's pretty scuffed up. Your sign is in such great shape. Are you sure you followed your own advice? :)
