Not much to this one. My wife wanted something to mark the spot in the garden where her much loved Beagle , Bran, was buried. Cast iron was rescued from a skip and the wood was from our old BBQ. The only problem was, when I was painting the iron work I discovered it was cracked in 2 places. At this stage I had already put a couple of hours into it (including dipping the nuts and bolts) and was not prepared to throw it away. So I removed the offending arm. Its a bit odd looking but serves its purpose. Also that’s Bran on the day we sent him on his way.

Also the paint was a two pot epoxy aircraft paint years past its expiry day, which was being dumped and I took it. Wish I knew what it was as it is in generic cans with only mixing instructions. When it hardens it is incredibly tough with a beautiful finish. I have used it on all sorts of things. It comes up great on any surface.

A nice remembrance.
I might have opted to remove both arms just to keep it symmetrical.
Still works.
Well done.
