Gardening & Crafts

 

Here is some crafts I made for around the house and garden.

hbasket1.JPG (68805 bytes) Here is a copper hanging basket I made from copper tubing, copper wire, and a coconut fiber liner. Its not perfectly shaped and even, because its the prototype ( I plan on making more of them). Gives it the hand-made look.

I couple pictures of the construction of the copper hanging basket. You can see the 'jig' I used to make the different loops and curves with. I soldered everything together with a propane torch and solder. When it was all done, I cleaned it, sanded it with fine steel wool until it was very shiny, and sprayed it with clear polyurethane so it will retain its luster for a while.

What I call my 'Bird Hotel'. Not finished yet. Just put it up yesterday. It has 2 birdhouses, a large feeder, and an experimental squirrel baffle.
