Vicki's Wood 'n Things
|Here's a variety of woodworking projects connected to my gardening. They are made of pressure treated lumber and stained with two shades of Cuprinol. All the projects other than the Pyramid for the morning glories are of my own design.|
photo has nothing to do with woodworking other than the logs
surrounding it. I just wanted to show off my new flowerbed.
another shot showing the pyramid (in the flower bed on the left) I built for my Morning Glories to
up of the Pyramid with Morning Glories
climbing it. It is the first project I made from "plans" and was almost harder than some of my own designs. It is from the May 2001 issue of Birds & Blooms.
a trellis I built for some Clematis a neighbor gave me. I hope
that next year the
will grow and cover
two similar trellises in the back yard garden, also for Clematis to
climb. I cut back the limbs on the walnut tree to the left and am
hoping for bigger vines next year.
shows the 3 scrolled plant hangers I made for my front porch posts.
used yellow pine for the "scrolled" part and salt treated for
the hanger section. The scrolled part is stained with Cedar Cuprinol,
the hanger with
Mahogany. There's a slot I made in the hanger to
receive the scroll. I did that with the drill press and cleaned up
the edges with my new chisels.
one of two planters I have on my deck for Begonias. It's joined
with biscuits and TiteBond II.
this bike planter and after a few weeks outside the "box"
literally fell apart, so I built a new one. If you look closely
you can see that the baby robin likes it.
