Yesterday my Dad and I built the vertical shelf for Monsanto Seeds which will be on display at the Garfield Park Conservatory from August 8 through December 9 for Chicago's Twelve.
I used a base that my friend Andy found in the alley, some $1 scrap wood from my local hardware store, and wood that had been sitting around in my Dad's yard.
I am thankful that my Dad was able to help me. He has any tool I could need.
My Dad sanding down some of the screws that stuck out.
The finished product! Now I need to sculpt the 8 plants to put inside the jars and connect the jars to the stand with jute. I am almost finished!
Here is the original sketch.
