A sneak peek of a piece for the custom goose fence for my aunt and uncle's lake property. Canadian geese are pretty to watch out on the water but they can really do a number on your yard, so many lake dwellers install goose fencing. These range from a single strand of wire, to pie plates on poles and on up to a full 4 ft wire fence (a little overkill).
I wanted to do something custom as a house warming gift for the cottage, and this was the idea I finally settled on. It will be a very low fence, just 18 inches tall. I am making some metalwork pieces from aluminum flashing to string along a copper wire which should patina nicely with time.
Here's a sneak peek at the first piece for the fence which I finished today. It's a leaping rainbow trout. I apologize for the glare, I couldn't get a better angle for the picture.
