My pet snake Reggie died unexpectedly while trying to dine on a porcupine, so I decided to make him a nice snake coffin; complete with a steamer to keep him cozy on those cold winter nights. I think he'll be very comfortable in his final resting place. Well shoot; now that I look at it, this would make a nice steamer for bending chair parts. Hmmm, sorry Reggie. Looks like a cardboard box will have to do for you.
|Six feet long. About 4 1/2" square inside dimension.|
|Plenty of hose length. Eleven feet long.|
|3/4" dowels, 5" from the front and back and 9" between on the others. Eight|
dowels total. About an inch and a half off the floor.
|My steam source. Little wall paper steamer. Says it'll run for about 70|
minutes on a tank full. Bought from Lowes with Christmas gift card from
my mother in law and father in law. Thanks guys!
|The back cap piece, rabbeted on the inside to help keep the box square.|
Need to drill a small hole or two back here near the bottom to let the water
that builds up from condensation run out.
|Converted the end that was originally going to a wallpaper steamer head|
to this garden hose type fitting for easy disconnect.
|Shot of the fitting disconnected. Just a few turns to disconnect.|
