Thanks to a flat tire replacement one week and a "4 for the price of 3" tyre deal the next, we've ended up with a perfectly serviceable, but 5 year old (so closing in on its use by date), tyre sitting in the backyard.
So I'm trying to think of things to use it for.
With 2 young kids (2 and 6mths) the first thought was "tyre swing" but we lack any decent branches on which to suspend it.
The current other option is to make a paltry lone raised garden bed out of it... or succumb to my desire to turn it into a tyre swan!
So I'm keen to hear / see what suggestions other people might have, and I'm sure the missus will apreciate a swan-less front garden.
Welcome to Workshop @Mick0s. Great to see you make your first post. I'm sure the Workshop community will have plenty of suggestions for you. Did you ever roll around inside a tyre as a kid? I think I've got the scars to prove it...
I wear my spare tyre with pride, but I'm a 65 year old with attitude. : P
Okay, so some vague progress on this one. I've finally come up with something to do with this baby... but it's definately a "wait til its warmer and you've build that big deck that you can't afford to build just yet" type of project.
So, until such a time, I'll just leave this here...
That ottoman looks fantastic @Mick0s. Great project!
What is being painted on the rope in the picture below?
@Isobel, I imagine its a can of clear coat polyurethane, or similar. Mainly to seal the rope and wood against the elements and wear and tear.
I might substitute the hot glue gun for some construction adhesive (liquid nails, etc), as I can't see hot glue being a great long term solution.
