    Come on guys... Hasn't anyone got some new projects they would like to show off?
    I come on here every day looking for inspiration and it would appear that there are only a handful of people building anything.
    I know the Aussie dollar has slowed me down a bit, but I still have some stuff left in the shed, so please show us your projects so I can attempt something new while the rains are here 8)

    I made some mini dalek type trees recently. I'll upload some pics tonight. They were unbelievably easy to make.
    I uploaded pics of my new matrix and Xmas presents recently.
    I've got some other ideas rolling around my head but they will have to wait until we find somewhere to live! And more importantly, somewhere to have a Xmas light show!!!

    Now I have cleaned up the back area ready for Zacs Pop to build us a new deck. I can make some room for a better setup for bending the arches. Then thinking of making 1m tall lollipops with all the incorrectly bent tubes I have laying around.

    Where did you get those spiral plant trainers from? I looked everywhere for them and finally gave up.

    My local bunnings ( Narrellan) however I have seen them at others. They are 1200mm and about $15.00. From memory they come in 900 and 1500 as well.

    You could do a special order for them. They may be accommodating.

    Love the 3d reindeer, I built some reindeer last year and told the wife it was too hard to build 3d, so I better not let her see this. :)
    She did get a sleigh that people can sit in, so I am sure I am off the hook.

    Thanks everyone for the pics, this is what I am talking about.... inspiration plus :D
    Keep them coming :D

    Was thinking of doing a bulk buy to get some of this stuff but they don't go cheap so I didn't worry.

    I have a number of items on the go...
    Singing faces - 3 months of back and forwards with Ray , only for him to finally send me the wrong stuff :)

    Transitioned from LSP to xlights and moved everything to run on XL and on the Falcon PI.

    Have 9 P10 panels and a BBB , but one item for the Octoscoller .... is holding it up from being turned on (plus a visit to Alan to solder the bits together)

    Am doing a mega tree , the lights are all hanging off the curtains , but at least they work (after Ray had to replace 3 strands)

    Have some floods not yet added, but they light on my command.
