    On the right is a base that the pole broke out of.
    On the left, is a base that disintegrated.

    Here is a new tree, completed with plastic.
    I use guy lines (yellow) to hold the plastic pipe up, instead of the big base.
    The metal ring at the bottom is staked to the ground, not the pole.
    You can see 2 controllers mounted to the pipe. That's because there are 12 red/12 white strings, and a controller only handles 16 outputs.

    Top of the 'tree'.
    Just below the star.
    This is how I mount the top of the light string, to the hooks.
    Also, you can see the yellow guy lines I've added.

    And, here is a star, mounted above.
    Tree is on it's side, cause I'm still building it in this pic

    :ugh: Gee, why didn't I know that 2019 was really 2022?! :lmfao:
    I'm lazy.
    If nothing has changed I figure why video it again.


    Dad and I are talking about completely revamping it for next year.

    Problem is, then I'd need to figure out where to put things, and then REDO all the songs programming.
