Bird feeding station
« on: September 15, 2013, 18:34 »
I'm so chuffed with myself - have just made a pole to hang my bird feeders from out of the old rotary washing line!  Saving me all of... hmm... a tenner or so... and involved quite a lot of sawing, chiselling and melting of plastic on the gas cooker... and no customers yet!  But very satisfying.  And it saves taking it to the tip!

I heard this is called 'upcycling'  :D

A picture would be nice!  I made mine into a weather station mast.

If I could work out how to post photos actually into posts I could put a photo up - my favourite bit is the finials made from old squash balls!  They really are handy sized little jobs, I must cadge some more off my squash playing colleague.
