          Great little device for anytime you need to set up a campfire or firepit. Not for lugging around when hiking of course as it's a bit hefty but if you are off road camping or even want to smoke some fish creek side this gadget is the ticket.
          The logs stack against the side and then they fall to the middle as they burn. You can put tinder of any kind in the middle to get the fire going.
          You can also use this as a lodge style cook stand. Just get your fire going and then you can add a cast iron skillet to the top. Or under a camp fire tripod. If you have the flat griddle pan for the tripod you can set your coffee pot on that.
          Pros: Durable, Easy to Install, Nice Design, Sturdy

          Very well made wall mount. It does not pull forward away from the wall (the tilt is 10 degrees I believe) but it does tilt to a better advantage for viewing. We needed this particular mount to be away from the wall though, for wiring and other devices that we wanted not visible so we built out the studs about 6" so that we could securely mount the TV and yet have room behind it for our Alexa controlled devices like Multi-room music.
          Very easy to install and it has a built in level with is so handy! It also has brackets designed to fit pretty much any TV, just check the VESA hole pattern. There is a tolerance range.
          Pros: Clear Instructions, Easy Installation, Easy to Use

          The Commercial Electric Rope Light Accessory Kit can be used on both the white and RGB models. The kit includes clips and screws to mount the rope lights. Simply screw the clips to a stable surface and snap in the rope lights.

          This is a basic kit with 12 kits and 12 screws. You can install the clip.s up to every two feet without sag normally so this kit could ostensibly run 24 feet of lighting. The rope lighting then just snaps in to the clip. You can also use these clips for running cable line if you don't want to run a channel.
          They don't work that well in drywall as a note. The screws are too small to stay in place. If doing this indoors, you can run the clips every 16" on center in studs but you may need longer screws.
          Pros: Functional, Nice Design

          Scentlandia from Proven Winners is one of the most fragrant varieties with sweetly scented, long summer blooms. This small, hardy shrub also has outstanding fall color so that the plant stays interesting beyond its bloom time. Itea is one of the most shade tolerant flowering shrubs and thrives even in wet soils, making it an excellent plant for tough areas.

          The plant I received came well protected in a great box and wrapped in a protective layer, like when you get fresh cut flowers. I was impressed that a live plant like this could arrive in such great condition.
          The gallon plant itself is very green, healthy and quite large for what I also expected.
          I can't wait for spring when these will bloom as of course this is the end of the season. They are a good shade plant normally and I'm hoping they will thrive in the location I have for them. (I have several)
          Pros: Good Shape, Great Quality, Vibrant Color

          No, I do not recommend this product.
          I got a gallon container of this plant as well as the quart version. This one was pretty pathetic. It's super tiny, even for a quart, and it looks like someone cut all the leaves. They don't looked like an insect had lunch, definitely a result of someone clipping the plant.
          I do have to say these plants come very well protected in a box and wrapped with liner. I was concerned about their travel but they were definitely secure.
          Here's a caveat - probably best to get these at the store so you can pick the one you want.
          Cons: damaged

          It will not work without a hub. However you can use it as a regular lock. Or as a lock that has codes for different people that you can set up. Plan for at least 30-60 minutes for install.

          Add a splash of color to your next interior accent wall or decor project with UFP-Edge Charred Wood project boards. Charred Wood is crafted with high-quality lumber that has been expertly burned to highlight its distinct wood-grain pattern. By finishing the boards with a vibrant coat of paint, you get a unique board surface. These bold-colored boards let you create unique accent walls, projects and focal points. If using for furniture or in high-traffic areas, a high quality polyurethane sealer is recommended. Due to the natural characteristics of wood, some cupping and warp may occur. These products are not recommended for outdoor applications. If used for exterior applications, wood protector sealant is required. Color will vary from board to board and lot to lot. It is recommended you purchase your entire job, plus a minimum of 10% overage to ensure most consistent color. Color: Lava Red.

          Answer: 
          I'm sure you could do that although you would not need the 3/4" base for the wood to attach to. The boards are pine. Take a look at how some tables are made. They usually have a skirt around the edge with the legs attached in the corners.
          If you want the boards to remain tight to one another, first lay the boards down on a flat surface and draw a line around where you will place the skirt. Then attach Read More

          If you want the boards to remain tight to one another, first lay the boards down on a flat surface and draw a line around where you will place the skirt. Then attach 3/4" x 2" strips of plywood or other wood evenly across all the boards within that area, leaving room for the legs. The skirt needs to be of enough height to get your legs under the table. Read Less
