The top of that sunbed could make quite a few mounts too.

Look forward to seeing your finished remodel.

i cant wait to see what you create

is it super heavy? it might be teak which would be amazing
Yep, super heavy, there was no way I could have lifted it into my SUV. Arms felt 5 feet long by the time I got home

Hubby just said, 'what, more junk!' He really doesn't get upcycling, gardening, orchids ...... It does have some benefits - there's no discussion about what goes on outside, I do what I like! (Same goes for inside as well, he just doesn't realise )

Fuerte Ray's post reminded me of recently recycling in the OTHER direction.

When I was a graduate student, I built a plant stand with fluorescent lights for my modest orchid collection. I built what I could with limited funds and tools, but ended up with a wobbly not-so-great plant stand.

Years later, I built a much better plant stand, and consigned the old one to use as storage in the garage. It wasn't great for that either. This year I did a major garage clean-out. What to do with the old stand? Being a proud cheapskate, I completely dismantled it, used about 90% of the wood plus a little extra hardware to make a super-strong storage rack for outdoor garden tools:

Thanks

It's a tool rack actually. For rakes, shovels, hoes, picks, soil augers, sledgehammers, mauls, everything down to pruning shears size.
