Hi @nicholas bonham-carter ,The float is fun, but what IS that multi-bladed windmill thingie? That looks like a story waiting to be told! It looks like it could have been built by a mid-western farmer who teamed up with Alexander Calder.

I have always been interested in kinetic art, and that structure is like a Calder mobile, but operating in the vertical plane.
I’ll try to post a video of it in motion sometime.—NBC0
I love repurposing things. I look at everything I’m about to throw away for it’s potential as something it wasn’t intended for. I upgraded my office furniture recently and my old desk hutch had this cool glass door. I saw it as a picture frame and used it for my dad who died recently. I walk by it every day and say “Hey Pops”. 😊Steve Minnich3

These are parts of heat exchanger we took out of a boiler a few years ago. They go all the way around the fence.
And this is an old flue we took out of my house when I converted to radiant. It's waiting for me to be inspired.

Here's some repurposed flashing on a lightening rod. I asked myself, If Dr. Seuss were to draw a hummingbird, what would it look like? This hummer is six feel long. Wonder who's faster, my hummer or Bob's rocket???
Hi @hot_rod , Actually, that was just the color created by silver soldering. I'm not that much of an artist. The hummer does have a glass eye, which is fun when the light is right.
ps, What I'd really like to see is a video of @nicholas bonham-carter s windmill thingie in action0
A couple of flower pots.3
@Larry Weingarten that hummingbird is awesome!! @Alan (California Radiant) Forbes i would use the flue pipes for raised flower pots in a garden bed.1
