Mr. Awesome said we needed a project for the guys. Something for the man cave. So here it is:
old pot or pan
misc. screws,nuts and bolts
weather stripping from a door
drill and bits
glue (we used super glue)
someplace to work other then the kitchen table.
First, remove the handle from the old pot or pan.
Make sure you recycle the pot or pan.
On the top of the licence plate, at the corners make a cut at 45 degrees. (Just do your best guess work.)
Make the cuts about an inch deep. Only make the cuts on the top, not the bottom. Do this on both sides.
Flip the licence plate over. On the edge of a piece of wood or your work bench, line up the cuts you just made, and clamp the licence plate down.
Bend the licence plate down along the edge of the work surface.
With a pair of pliers pinch the tabs together and square it up the best you can. Make sure you do this for both corners. At this point you should have what looks like a three sided box.
