This is a small Geesebo that I made for my Mother-In-Law. She has three concrete Geese that were on her porch. But people couldn’t see them, so I built her a Geesebo for them.
It comes apart into 3 pieces. The base splits the body in 2, and the top comes off. It’s all made with pressure-treated wood. The design was all mine. I sketched it out and went from there. The railing was made to reflect the railing on their house. The roof shingles match too.
The ‘pics were scanned from the polaroid’s that I used before I got a digital camera.

At first I thought, “He misspelled ‘gazebo’”, but now I know.
