Up-cycle CD base for driftwood
Again, nice to be able to use something rather than it becoming trash!
Stack and glue a few used CD's. I used epoxy glue to make it really secure.
Fit a dowel stick into the hole in the middle of the CD stack and glue. Leave the stack to stand perfectly upright while the glue sets.
Drill a hole in the bottom of the driftwood.
Glue the driftwood to sit on the CD stack
Stacked CD's as a base for a driftwood design.
Pour some wood glue on to the CD stack
Spread the glue to cover the CD surface.
Make sure you cover the entire surface evenly.
Sprinkle some black sand over the wet wood glue
Go slow to make sure you cover the surface evenly.
Set aside to let the glue dry completely.
Turn the base on its side and tap to remove loose grains of sand.
Start a second layer by pouring out some wood glue
Spread the glue carefully. Make sure you do not scratch the first layer of glue and sand.
Sprinkle the sand
Let the glue dry completely before you start the design
