How fun is this fall display? I dont want to sell any of it.
We welded an old drinking cup to one of the disc blades.
We made a fun stand out of more of the disc blades.
This was the rock basket from the top of the field disc.

I just spent a few days with my Dad on our family farm. We had way too much fun. He taught me how to weld. I welded the scarecrow frame from rebar. We took apart an old field disc that he no longer uses, and recycled it into great pieces for fall displays.

Pattern or design used: My own design
