My wife thinks I'm nuts. I just built a shop/garage behind my house. The downstairs I'm going to use for a workshop and storage. Upstairs I'm going to turn into my own personal video arcade. I have lots of old units like Pac Man and Galaga. We'll put blacklights, rope lighting and some glow-in-the-dark carpeting. I'm going to try to make it like the arcades I spent big $$ in back in the early 80's.
So, I thought it'd be neat if I put a small condensing unit in the garage or outside, and fabricated some type of evap coil upstairs, just a coil, no fan, so it ices up nicely. We have a theme park where I live where they have the "North Pole" which is an iced up pole(evap) about 8" in diameter and 5' high. I'm thinking of building some type of snowman, sculpture, or tubing bent to form a sign. I figure it'd be a neat conversation piece when my kids (4 & 8) bring their friends over.
I'd really like to build the snowman. How to get the shape tho? Any ideas?
And have any of you guys ever used your skills for anything unconventional like this? What's the neatest thing you've ever done with your skills?
