One of the small projects for my week off work last week, other than mainly gardening :roll: :lol: was to make some obelisks for the veg/flower garden for swmbo to grow her sweet peas on a bit later in the year.

Just basic drill and screw construction, nothing fancy, used preservative treated timber and then also soaked the bottom of the legs in same before painting so with a bit of luck will last a few seasons.





Turned the four ball shaped finials for the tops too, surprisingly hard to get four roughly the same size and shape !

SWMBO gave them a quick rub with sandpaper and painted them her chosen colour and declared herself very happy with them :D

Cheers, Paul

Good job jobbed there Paul, plus loads of brownie points to boot!

That's the thing with spinny projects, it's relatively easy to turn one thing, but then it gets difficult turning more to match don't it.. Turning a ball isn't the easiest thing either :shock:

That looks like a well ogalised gardin you've got there too?

Yep, brownie points in the bank John, and being used up watching the rugby this afternoon !

Garden's a bit bare and bleak at the moment but does look nice later in the year when it all greens up, the obelisks are in the veg garden, fenced off to keep out the rabbits which eat everything outside the fence !

Cheers, Paul

Very nice - much nicer than a few bean poles tied together?

Good rugby, but a great shame about the score of the second game (hammer) (hammer) (hammer)
