Horseshoe Wreath

I have always wanted to make a horseshoe wreath, but since I’m not a welder, I created a new way to make it.

I used #6 x 3/4″ pan head machine screws and nuts. I did enlarge a few holes on the drill press so the screws would fit.

These are large cast iron horseshoes. You could use steel horseshoes … Read More

Lariat with Frames

When I first wake up in the morning ideas pop into my head. That was the case with this idea.

I started with the loop end at the top and attached inexpensive frames with a brad nail gun. … Read More

Horseshoe Bottle Opener

Here’s an idea for a man cave. I found an old broken board from a weathered pallet and placed a Small Horseshoe on it, set a Bottle Opener inside it and screwed it to the board. The opener held the horseshoe to the board so I didn’t put any screws there, but you may want to do that. Use long … Read More

Horseshoe Pallet Tray

I’m using up the last of my weathered pallet so I wanted to make a tray. This is one of those ‘design as you build’ projects. Instead of having upright sides I decided to lay them down.

I used 3/4″ screws and a counter sink bit to attach the three boards to the frame.

Here’s the side view and you … Read More
