Here she is ... Miss Cheese Mold America!
You start with two raw cheese molds.
Run one inside the other leaving the closure exposed at the top and bottom. Details details!
Put a clamp on it!!!
Drill a hole at the top center to accomodate a 5/8th inch eye bolt. Watch out for flying dust!
Connect another eye bolt to a coupler...
...and marry the two. Thats why theyre called couplers.
One eye bolt at the top outside and one eye bolt at the top inside gives you the ability to hang the chesse molds and a plant inside.
Again...
...and again. Its a fun idea for yor outdoor living space!

While setting up for the JUNKMARKET Under Glass Show held last weekend I was faced with the "What to do with Cheese Molds" challenge. Heaven knows I had enough of them!!! I thought large plants hanging in the center would be beautiful. With a little tweaking and brainstorming of the idea with my good friend Ken O'Brien from Mudd Lake Furniture the circular cheese mold plant hanger was born. Thanks, Ken...it was a delight working with you!


Did you make this?
After you make it, show it off to other members in the Member Junk area.

Have always wanted to put a flowering plant in it like you did with your project. I will have to finally do that this summer. I love the way yours looks. Posted: 6:01 pm on April 19th

I'm in LOVE with this! What a wonderful visual. And being somewhat of a plantaholic myself, this one drew me right in.

I'm looking around for things to dangle a plant inside as we speak.

JunkArchitect writes: Well that's cool and very unique. And the wood has an amazing patina. Thanks for posting something that at least hints of spring.

By the way, if you want to unload five molds I've come up with another idea.

Ya grossed me out a little with the "Miss Cheese Mold America".
