One of the perks of working in the MOTHER EARTH NEWS editorial office is the opportunity to leaf through the pages of the issues that were published in Hendersonville, N.C., prior to 1985. Hidden in single columns, Country Lore tips and black and white features are dozens of wild, wacky and imaginative projects built by MOTHER’s readers. Here are just a few to whet your appetite:
We Built a Spinning Wheel for $2.50 (The wheel is from a bicycle.)
How to Build a Garden House for Birds, Bats and Bees
Build a Kozy Korner Homestead Garden Thing
We’re wondering if you’ve built any wild, wacky and wonderful objects. If so, tell us about it in the comments section below, and you could post a photo on CU, our photo-sharing site.
