Been planning to make a trellis sculpture for the garden for quite some time… and the Summer LJ Contest provided the perfect excuse to finally get around to it… unfortunately life provided with plenty of excuses to put it off – which wasn’t part of the plan, luckily, I had a good show in the 11th hour, and with a little less than 24 hours to spare I’m done!
The largest turning project I’ve done to date by a staggering margin – 23.5 feet of lumber, all reclaimed pine, now living a new life – about to be taken over by the plant life, out in the garden. Mostly designed on the fly – but the legs are similar – save for the chess themed tops – a late in the game design inspiration… Oh did I mention that there is no glue, screws or any mechanical fasteners of any type either? Yep, wood, and nothing but wood… (in the form of reclaimed railings, and some vines)… soon nothing but wood, plants and (quite likely) spiders and bees.
Here’s the official entry in the contest, and some more of the background on the project.
