I can hardly wait for the owner to come pick you her bottle tree! After I figured out what I was doing I started to have fun making this I might have to make a few more!

About Isak Dinesen
Isak Dinesen was the pen name of Karen Blixen, the Danish author famously portrayed by Meryl Streep in the film of her best-selling memoir, Out of Africa. She was born near Copenhagen in 1885. In 1914, she and her new husband moved to Kenya to run a coffee plantation. She stayed on after divorcing her husband ten years later, living an unusually independent life. Her book of stories, Seven Gothic Tales, sold well, but Out of Africa made her a worldwide success. She died in 1962.
It was 93 degrees out today and I was working in my shop. My little shop felt like it was 120 degrees inside with the welder going. Susan Gerend has been asking me to build her a bottle tree. I finally got it finished today.
I also finished a few other projects and I am closer to getting a few more completed.
