Upcycling old items as planters/plant stands.

Plant containers and stands made from items that would otherwise go to the Bunnings waste box.

Wonderfully creative work as usual @Jamespeter100, although I suspect TRS-80 fans might feel a little aggrieved. I certainly would be outraged if you repurposed a Commodore 64 as a garden planter - I still love my old machine!

Below, when 3D printers came out, thought great, print out replica plants. Coleus here.

 I’m getting messages from people wanting items made up and sent. The postage is heaps. Do others get contacted by buyers? The person is in Syd, thinking to send the buyer to someone in Syd. The coleus pictures were taken in a dslr, so double click to see the pretty leaves.

Your creativity is astounding, @Jamespeter100! Great work re-purposing that Apple computer. Becoming an aquarium is likely the most useful thing it has ever done.
