DIY Exterior Ashtray Posted on May 23, 2014 by BrantH Tweet For the longest time, members and guests were treated to this gorgeous sight: We can do better! All it took was some scrap metal, an old light fixture, and scrounged hardware. Grinding, welding, drilling, done. Ninety minutes later, I had chucked the vile plastic bucket in the dumpster and this hotness was bolted to the wall. One project done and a great way to start the Memorial Day weekend.
