Making a Bike Rim Trellis

Just having some fun this day with Making a Bike Rim Trellis for a good customer of mine.

She wants to give this to her husband for under his office window as one of his Christmas presents. He’s loves riding bikes and has everything she says but a Bike Trellis.

I Just finished and delivered the Bike Rim Trellis. The customer was happy to see it done before Christmas for her husband. I think the Purple Frame added a lot to the look. It was fun and easy to do as well.

This Repurpose project is one that is easy to build with few parts. If you go to your local Bike shop in town they will probably give you their broken Bike Rims for free and be happy too. It only took me about 3 hours to make this and I sold it for 120.00 with no problem. There are many People that love bikes and riding them. This is a good way to keep those parts out of the Landfills  and make some extra cash at the same time.

If you are interested in more of these kind of things I do, I would like to envite you to join My community of Discovering Repurposing site.

There you can post things that you have created form something else into a New Purpose.

Thanks for ready this article about my Bike Rim Trellis.

Bed Head Boards into Garden Benchs

This summer I work on head board Benchs after my normal work was finishe for the day. The fall is now here so the extra time to make more of them is shorter because the the day light and the weather here in Anacortes. The Northwest is getting into the rainy season. Never been my favorite thing as a builder of homes.

My shop is not very big only 10 X 20 or 200 sq. ft. so my bench projects have to be one at a time with all my tools in the shop as well. This summer I produced 10 Bed Head Boards into Garden Benches. Each one is totally different from each other and are waiting for a new home.

Here are some pictures of the Garden Bench Creations.
