Went a walk along the beach a couple of Sunday mornings back, always a bit depressing all the rubbish that has washed up, sometimes gather it up and burn it but came up with another idea for it- make sculptures! Went back with a hammer and a pocket full of nails the next week...................

People seem to enjoy it as there is  signs of people having been there for a look even though it is a fairly remote place, a few things been added since.

 

It's definitely a gentleman as can be seen by the strategically placed fire extinguisher nozzle! ;)

 

Probably do some more in the future, never know it may catch on and they may start popping up all over the place. :laugh:

I had never welded but always wanted to learn so took the plunge and bought a welder, taught myself how to weld sticking scrap metal together into various prehistoric beasts. Here is one of the more useful ones i made years ago- a boot brush for the front door.
