Concrete Bird Bath(s)

Used the lowrider to cut three layers for the mold.

Took several tries to figure out the best release chemicals. Motor oil alone wasn’t doing it – silicone provided the flex for such tight quarters.

Sealed the concrete.

Used the Lowrider to flatten a stump but then decided it was too distracting aesthetically (said stump has been relegated to dining room table).

Both baths are a big hit on dry days. I wish I had more documentation.

The drip rod is useless because it is swung round by the bluejays bouncing on and off.

Plus it turns out birds are real slobs and I have to clean the baths out daily anyway.

Will def revisit this idea of mold making again.
