Maple tree ----- dull drill bit ----- half charged drill.
And thus the Drill Tree fad begins. :)
Ohhh - thanks for the laugh after a rough day at work!!!
But of course the battery died as you were drilling...is there any other way?! Sounds all too familiar to me! Hang in there....it will happen.
ohhh ... I was so mad ! I planned on doing this all myself without DH. The drill was so stuck in the tree , it broke off while we were trying to get it out. We put in a brand new drill bit -- a brand new charged battery -- started a brand new hole --- and it still wouldn't budge. We decided to use a drill with a cord -- more power.... we got one hole drilled , but it took muscle ! Darn Maple tree ! More news to come ...
Looks painful, poor tree.
And they call me Calamity!!!lol!
Oh sure, blame it on the tool and the tree.
I use a lot of green beer bottles in my projects and I noticed that I have better results if I don't empty all the bottles the same day I do the project. :)
This is a GREAT post-grin.
I just bought new batteries for my Ryobi (tools &)
drill because it would not hold a charge for long.
I love the battery tools, but sometimes #S@&*.
I bet that scenerio sounds familiar to all of us junkers. The best layed plans go astray~~ Success will be yours! Enjoy! Jlily
I sooo needed this today! *chuckle*
Thought these things only happened
to me (at least, that what dh claims)
Hey I love the drill tree idea!
Can't wait to see what you end up with.
lol sorry for laughing but that tree looks so funny with the drill just hanging there
I needed a laugh today! This thread is too funny. That sounds like one tough maple tree, but I bet the spikes holding the bottles will stay put once you get all the holes drilled. Looking forward to seeing the finished creation.
