my spiral tree is beginning to take shape, I have made the bottom and top and have most of the other components to put it together. It consists of a 40mm diameter stainless steel tube with a 1300mm diameter bottom ring and will be about 3000mm overall height. It will have 20 doubled up blue LED strings attached. I have the base ring made, it is a circular piece of aluminium composite material (ACM) that I routed and jigsawed out. To the outside edge a rolled a 25 x 12 x 1.6mm aluminium angle around an fixed with 3mm pop rivets. To this angle I plan to string 20 stainless steel wires to a top fixing point. The top fixing is just some PVC plumbing fittings that I got from Bunnings, a bit of hole sawing, cutting and gluing and done. I bought some stainless stranded wire and crimps on eBay, just waiting for them to arrive to start assembly. More photos and progress will follow in due course.
