Garden gong

tehutiSeptember 27, 2010

My muse is back from vacation.

This old fire extinguisher never looked so good. B4 U ask!

one old fire extinguisher

an old table-lamp base

a 23" bicycle rim

Miscellaneous bits

The beater was made from a bamboo section from a plant stake

and the hard rubber roller from an office chair.

I have a blue-plate special in the works but you'll have to wait a few days.

I was definitely intrigued by the term garden gong, and it IS a beauty!! I would never have thought to create one myself, but my "gears" are turning now too! ;-)
