Those are incredibly impressive, @Baretta11! I'll stick to small mosaics as I have nowhere near enough patience to complete something of such magnitude. Out of interest, what type of glue did you end up using?
Many thanks for sharing this amazing work.
Thanks for the kind words.
You know I'm not a mad keen artist or mosiac buff but once I knew what I wanted to do I just gave it a go.
To memory the glue was bond something or other or something bond, a milky glue, easy to use and just after I'd finished the project I was told I should have used something else but too little too late ha-ha.
I needed a glue that would be ok under water given this is a bird bath but so far so good. The edge of the steel is showing signs of rust but I can't do anything about the now and I think this will still last for many years to come.
@Julieg9426, that sounds like a lot of fun!
How was it? I'll be keeping an eye out for those photos.
Wonderful to have you join us @navycoo_1.

Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @bobbob.
It would be great if you could edit your first post to let us know how we can help with any projects at your place.
Please let me know if you'd like any help.
I'm Querencia and I live in Albany, WA. I've been reading many discussions on here and gleaning lots of helpful tips, especially in the garden threads. My front, back and side yards need to be landscaped and I have drawn up plans for so many projects... there's so much I don't know and I do get scared of making mistakes and ruining things. I try to research as much as I can and tell myself that I've just gotta learn how do them now. I'm trying to do everything by myself. Last weekend I even taught myself how to use a lawn-mower for the first time and I was surprised at how much I enjoyed it.
I like repurposing things so I've amassed quite a collection of pallets, bricks and timber off-cuts which I plan to use in the garden. I'm currently slowly creating a 35m chook tunnel out of scrap timber, garden edging and cable ties. I'm here to learn!
Only discovered this community recently - very excited. Wish we had known about it nine months ago when the renovations began.
The 'we' is myself and my partner. I do the research and designing, and he does the actual build, and then I come and say "why did you do it that way?" 😀😀😀
We just finished our first big project, which was turning a very large - 2900(l) x 3500(w) x 3200(h) - space into three 'rooms' for the kids by putting a triple bunk bed in the middle, with a loft dividing one side into a lower and upper space. Still haven't finished building the stairs for the upstairs loft (or the floor of the small secondary loft, or the door to the underloft room, or the curtains to go on the curtain gap of the bunk bed, or the desk to go in the left room, or the bookstairs, or the cupboard doors.... 😲 )But it was finished enough to move them in, and we will circle back once the major jobs are done... hopefully....
Current project is to turn a similar sized space into a study/library/quiet space.
