Used an old table bottom and added a pot cover to make this birdbath.
Solar Beeswax Melter
I cut apart an old bookcase wall unit, added old storm windows and a copper shower pan. Then painted the interior black to melt wax. Temperature goes to 180 degrees with the passive solar gain and the beewax melts to mold for all kinds of uses.
I turned an old firepit into a planter.
Retractable Plant Hangers
Our electric retractable awning got old and shredded, but the mechanism worked fine, so I repurposed it to be used to raise and lower plants for watering in our kitchen.
