Bottle 1077 - Puzzle Pole
Date Added: 09 June 2013

This bottle is a plastic 5 gallon water bottle 19" tall, 9" diameter with a 1 1/2 " neck opening. ALL of the pieces had to be inside the bottle before the main body was placed inside the neck. It is made of all wood with copper wire keepers on the pegs. I made it as an example for my art shows as the smaller bottles were too hard to see for the 'sceptics' that thought I was a cheater. I thought it would be easier because of it's size but actually it was more difficult as the tiny pieces are easier to stick on the end of a wire needle and were at the most 6' deep in the bottle. The 19' made it tough to control pieces and I had to make new tools to do the job. It took a lot more material, more carving and sanding and now takes up way too much room haha. Makes a good display though. - Keith Brown, Artist.
