You're welcome!

Yes, as in taxidermy mounts. I didn't know about the precautions concerning potential mildew problems. They are are in a wood and plexiglass enclosure and I don't think they are taken out of the tunnel. I will pass your info along to them. Thanks for the heads-up.

Actually, nothing surprises me about your many skills.

There's always a more cost effective and alternate route.

A good re-use of tires that trap and drown critters in their water filled rims!
Scattering just a few more rocks and plants "beyond its circular looking" rocky edge would tie it to the existing area....

A piece that I had created for an avid fisherman friends wedding.

I found a plank of wood shaped like a walleye and began folding and stapling on various bills altering their shape and color as I went.

I wanted to make one of these and actually found a blown out tire to the point of almost being flattened out as needed but when I went to lift it into the trunk it was pretty darn heavy so passed on it because I couldn't think of an easy way of cutting the darn thing into shape. Any idea as to how they created something like this? Probably not a band saw. Don't tires nowadays have metal in them?

Not my kind of thing, but that is really clever and rather attractive.

People are so creative.

I think most, if not all, do have metal threads in them.
