    Honeydo Projects

    My wife grabbed these ugly old steel "wrought iron" look chairs a couple years ago and decided they needed to be made into plant stands. UGH...

    Not very keen on the idea I stacked them aside. But I didn't make them disappear on any scrap runs. Well she's also at some time in the past couple years gotten these giant plants sitting in big pots on the ground off my porch killing my grass!

    Today one thing led to another and I cut the center out of an old Buick Road wheel and split the rim in half. Then I welded it to those chairs and used the old seat bracing as extra across the bottom for the pots to sit on.

    Man this woman really knows how to pick her battles. Ask for something with a pretty smile and no idea how it might become a reality then never say another word. Just do something that will irritate me into realizing there's a relationship with what she wanted. So she got what she wanted today finally after all. Next time I'm at the store I'll bring her home some rusty metal primer and black hammer finish paint. Then I get to watch her make them nicer.

    A while back we decided on a rustic 4 ft fence to slow the winter wind howling across our yard. It's placement along the driveway meant my wife would need a gate to her flower garden. Well not just any sort of gate would be good enough. So I made her an arbor trellis with Dragons on it. Fire dragon with flame like wings as the trellis face guarding the outside and a Water dragon in the garden side. 2x4 stiffeners with claws on the ends to hold hanging baskets or bird feeders, whatever she wants.

    LOL! She's a little nut. I don't think a cat has ever caught a bird over at the feeders.
