More Glass Plate Flowers
My father in law, Jack, finished up more glass plate flowers for me.
I really ♥ them!
He made a feeder from a cake plate and bowl.
Jack is pretty handy and came up with a unique way to make these.
They were pretty easy to create. You do need a glass bit to drill through the plates.
He soldered a metal wood insert (it's threaded) into the end of a 4' piece of 3/8" copper tubing.
The end of the tubing is slightly bent. He put a finishing washer then a long screw through the first dish, a small washer, the plate, a small washer, then screwed it into the threaded insert.
Don't screw it super tight & bring them in before the weather turns really cold.
