  1. Thank you, the kids love it too! Sent from my SM-G900T using Tapatalk Thank you Sent from my SM-G900T using Tapatalk
  2. Finally finished my cutouts. This is my first time doing cutouts, or any kind of wood project really. All patterns cane from the Winfield collection and done using a craftsman battery jig saw and a harbor freight mini router. I had planned to do several more eggs, but time wasn't on my side here. I just don't have anymore time put on this. Cross was modified with a white backdrop of 1/4 ply with 2x2 for stand off. I added 2 strings of applights to backlight the whole thing (85%off after Christmas). I used pure white and high gloss sealer on the backdrop and back of the cross to help reflect the light. Overall I'm pretty happy with it, especially never really painted like this before. It's just time consuming. Anyway, I thought folks would enjoy seeing it. Sorry I can't get the video to upload, it captures the lights way better. Sent from my SM-G900T using Tapatalk
  3. Thanks. I totally get the time constraint. Hopefully I'll get the cross finished in the next few days and get a pic up. I've had to do a lot of the work late at night after the kids go to bed. Sent from my SM-G900T using Tapatalk

  5. Do you have any of the lights left on sale?
  6. Finally getting these finished up, ill try and post pics by the weekend. I ended up with the fence peeker, and Easter egg and the cross (slightly modified). I would love to do more eggs, time just isn't on my side). I need to seal the bunny and string the lights for the cross and put the back on and im done. I'm pretty pleased with the results (cant wait to see it lit up at night actually).
  7. I think I'll pass, thanks. Not sure the idea I had will work with these very well. If they have any next year that make it to the 75% cut; I get another 10% on that, so I can wait. Thanks. Sent from my SM-G900T using Tapatalk
  8. Let me know if you sell. I might be interested at a good price. Sent from my SM-G900T using Tapatalk
  9. I can't go for that much, but I would be interested in some green if you decide to ship. Sent from my SM-G900T using Tapatalk
  10. Not interested in shipping? Sent from my SM-G900T using Tapatalk
  11. Here is what the light string looks like. 3 wore from the plug, two into midst lights. A few have 3 and some have 4, seems to be toward the beginning and the end of the strings that have more than 2. I was able to graft the remains of one onto the other for a strong of 80 and created two short strings (one of 13 and one of 16). I think I ruined the back halls of one string, but as long as I am using the original plug they seem happy with any number of lights. I know the black heat shrink looks terrible, it's what I had. Sent from my SM-G900T using Tapatalk There is not any markings on the plug or any indications anywhere. Any idea what type of plug I would need to use to get a few more working? I have a few more that I think are good, but don't know what type of plug or adaptor I might need to get them working. At this point its just experimenting to try and learn something.
  12. That's how I got them too. ..no way I was paying full price! Sent from my SM-G900T using Tapatalk
  13. The applights appear better made than the other ones. A user on here had an issues with moisture getting into the icicle lights (not applights version). They were not sealed at the top. I have the applights mini lights abs they appear to be well sealed. The icicle version may be better than the non applights . Sent from my SM-G900T using Tapatalk
  14. Something doesn't sound right there. Most of my lights register pretty close to spec, around .05 for most led strings. Sent from my SM-G900T using Tapatalk
  15. I guess I'll try to get a better picture of the lights themselves when I get back. 50 light string of color change led. Cut the first 12 off, they work great. Remaining 38 don't seem to work. They did light for a second and then went out. I'm not sure how to check to see if those lights are fried or something else I'm missing. It's bit a major loss either way, I'm just trying to figure out how this works. Not as simple as they would seem. Sent from my SM-G900T using Tapatalk
