Making stuff

My wife is currently experimenting with making a tri-broomstick for Grimhilda!  You'll all know what a tri-broomstick is, of course.  If you don't, you'll have to come along and see the show.

She's also been working on a prototype for a cage large enough to hold a growing male teenager - this is also for Grimhilda! (I don't want to give the impression she gets on and makes these things just for the fun of it.)  The cage is being made out of heavy wire, with twine pulling together the wire in various places and as wire cover for certain joins.   At this point the thing is standing without someone holding it up, but we're waiting to hear whether it's quite what's going to be needed before we make further improvements.
