A Pumpkin Center Piece Project for my Sister

My sister asked me to make a number of table center pieces for a school program she was helping to decorate for. The piece is based off (with some modifications) something she saw at a “Large” Lot store (no ads here) so I went to the store to get the measurements, the last picture. Shortly after my commitments to her, I injured my ankle playing my husband in racquetball. SO, between the 3 of us, we finished up making 35 of these center pieces. This is as close to production line work as I would ever want to come. I made my poor hubby salvage the wood from someone’s back yard who was taking down a swimming pool & fence, with their permission of course. I have a reputation as a dumpster diving, garage sale’n kind of person. SO, from old pool fencing to Thanksgiving center pieces.

Very nice, they look great. More talent there than just woodworking…

Nicely done, and better when you can repurpose the wood. Woodworking and artist, great combination to have.

Thank you, I love making old crusty looking wood into something nice! I guess it’s recycling with self rewards when you can see the outcome.
