Default Leftover drums and cymbals to good use

During these confinement wks, other than playing a lot of drums, i got a little bored and decided to use an old floortom as a coffee table and also to rig some cymbals beside wood chimes in the backyard to bring a smile to people's faces. It made me laugh. on windy or rainy days, the thing comes alive.

Nice. I made a night stand from two, unopened crates of CDs of my recordings that I will never sell. Looks great!

My GF said that the green sparkle stuff is really nice but orange would be better suited with the couch and all. So there i went to the basement to cut some mod-orange to replace the green...Photos keep uploading sideways...Sorry.

I was told from someone who studied with the late great Charlie Owen (Univ of Mich; fmr Principal Percussionist of the Philadelphia Orchestra; plus 20 years in the "Presidents Own" Marine Band starting in 1938) that He used a cracked Turkish K's as a Squirrel barrier for his bird feeders.
