My wife followed a ceramics course, around 2002-2003.
There she made 3 ceramic sunflowers. After all those years she cleaned out her old projects. The sunflowers where to nice to trow away.
I decide to hang them in our hallway and paint some stems and leaves on the wall.

3 years ago I made a bench from a bunch of pallet slats. Quite a few of them started rotting, it started falling apart and it was time to build a new one.

After some thinking, I decided with a modern floating design.

About a month ago, I build a temporary Parasol base, until I made a new one.

My wife and I couldn’t find a parasol base we liked.
It’s too hot to sit in the sun, so this has to do till we find a good one, or I make a decent one.
All scraps and firewood put to good use.
About a year and a half ago, I got a complete 2 story staircase that was for the garbage.
Some of it I saved for later use, all the rest became firewood.
Among the parts still in my shed was this big stairpost.

From building my house, about 3 years ago, the builders left behind a meter of 315mm PVC pipe.
At first I wanted to build a curved sundial, so I cut a piece half the lenght and half the diameter to do some testing.
Eventually this idea seemed too difficult to do, so the idea went on the shelve for later.
