This project, by Imgur user sliphur, is one of these gorgeous feats. When she needed to cut down a tree in her yard that was preventing others from growing, she decided to use this landscaping debris to make something her pets that would love to use — and she would love to look at!
And I have to admit, looking at these gorgeous photos, she definitely accomplished that goal!
This is the tree she started with. After she chopped down the tree, she trimmed the branches and plucked the leaves. She also got some “strange looks from neighbors, wondering why I was cutting down a tree... then awkwardly dragging it into my back yard.”
Now she had to think about her limb selection. She wanted the branches to resemble “a spiral staircase.”
“Finally an excuse to use my circle jig!” she wrote. “I doubled up two circles for the base to give it more weight and stability.”
Then she glued and screwed everything together and attached the base with some lag screws.
Once it was assembled, she did a final trim of the branches.
