Nice stuff! Thanks for displaying it!
I'll be a story in your head, but that's OK we're all stories in the end.  Just make it a good one!

Thanks for sharing your projects. I am digging them fire pistons you have made and it is to see all of the different materials used.

I like the last cone shaped basket. It reminds me of a "cornucopia" basket my family used to set out every Thanksgiving. Really nice work!

Thanks, folks.

That one I did in just a few hours. The grapevine to use is the runners along the ground. Not the hanging vines. I set that basket out right at Thanksgiving as you can see for that very reason.

All the ones with the larger bores do. I think its just that I caught it with the photo at the right moment while I had a good amount of air hitting it.

They are all made from standard tube and rod blanks and common tools. No lathes, mills, or drill presses. If I can build them, anybody can.
