    So, the strife liked the previous rat rod plant pot holder that much ... she ordered (aka told me to make !!) another ! This was a bugger, so many curves ! Came out ok, asked her for a plant pot to test fit and she replied " I've potted everything on to bigger pots !!!!" 20200522_155421.jpg 20200522_160358.jpg 20200522_154943.jpg 20200522_154927.jpg 20200522_154828.jpg

    Well done!

    I think you've made a rod for your own back.

    Difficult question because I drop on and off stuff, and this started as a van, but after chopping the roof up twice because I couldn't get the back end right I'd probably wasted several hours ! Realistically I'd say I spent 15 hours on it total, so not a quick build !
