DIY 4th of July sparkler

using a hand grinder to cut off protruding screw heads

We celebrated Independence Day with some bucket hauler sparks.

I used 16 heavy duty exterior wood screws for a second attempt at plywood attachment.

They ended up protruding through the plywood side and needed to be grinded off to achieve a smooth surface. I also used 4 bolts with washers and nuts to be on the safe side. The nut side sticks out a bit, but I located each hole so it fits in a gap between buckets.
