Sometimes I get a bit fed up with the more exacting work and so just go a little mad. The Planter is entirely made out of found wood and metal with a bit of imagination thrown in. The body and feet are from a pallet, the legs from a milking shed, the head from a light fitting, the tail from and old garden fork and the wings from an old saw. I did feel a little guilty about cutting the saw up. The total cost of the materials for the project was zero.
Construction was pretty simple thanks to my trusty angle grinder for zipping through the metal. I couldn’t be bothered if I had to cut it with a hacksaw. Gorilla glue, nails and a few screws hold everything together. Finding metal pieces that have potential for the wanted shapes is the hardest part. Still it’s a lot of fun rummaging around old scrap heaps.
