You make a Mail holder with Mod-hodgepodge
If you’re like me, throw the mail on the table when you walk in the door. Instead, you can create an E-mail holders with a Mod collection and all stick together!
you Have this person in your life, the stack of mail in the stack? And you’ve asked the person politely to take the place of the E-mail somewhere, but you don’t?
This could help. Here’s the project from Walter.
If you’re like me and big on organization, then this project is perfect.
you Provide an E-Mail-holder.
Some of the basic tools and consumables you need:
• Mod-hodgepodge Shine
• 3 pieces of 4″ x 5″ x 3/4″ Plywood
• Mod-hodgepodge of Tools
• tape measure and ruler
• Philips screwdriver
• a pair of scissors and a cutter knife
• Self-stick rubber Pads (optional)
• measure and mark one of the pieces of plywood (BASE), 4″ x 5″ x 3/4″ for the 4 holes at each corner.
• Then you take an AWL, and push it into the plywood to mark the place . . . this step will help the line of the drill bit with the plywood.
• With the help of a drill machine – in and drill through the plywood. Then use a countersink bit or A larger drill bit (the size of the screw head).
• Drill the holes at about 1/8″ – 2/8″ deep. This is the “HOME” for the screw head.
• At this point you are cut ready to go! Yay! Use, whatever floats your boat . . .
Then seal all 3 pieces of plywood. I really like it, with FolkArt Satin Sealer.
Let it dry for 15 minutes and then a second layer!
Now that the pieces are dry, grab the “base.”
• you will Take an AWL and press through the pre-drilled holes and turning.
• screws, all 3 pieces, and (4) 1 1/4″. I SPAX-screws used, because I have so many.
• Put a page on his page, and “po” to base.
• TIP: Stick the awl through the “base” and “Sidepiece;” in this way, if you power the screw(s) attach to it for ease of contact.
• Repeat until you are done! Screw should be flushed to the base. (see photo)
• Place a rubber pad / bumper over each screw head and the project completed.
