I think this project must have started somewhere in spring. As always projects take longer then I imagine them to take.
It all started out with a sheet of 9mm MDF. A whole lot of firewood, cut into small pieces. These got glued and stapled to the piece of MDF, roughly in the shape of the door, but slightly bigger

These ghosts have been in my shed for almost one year.
Last year when I was making them, I got kidney stones and wasn’t able to finish them in time.
As halloween is around the corner, it’s their time to shine.
Made from scraps of wood and leftover paint.
My wife followed a ceramics course, around 2002-2003.

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.
