Recently I collaborated on a project with my uber-creative uncle who is an event planner-florist-extraordinaire. I can't say enough about David - he's amazing. (richfieldflowers.com) and just all around nice guy. He needed some eco-stands for upcoming events and we came up with some great twig/branch stands - they turned out great and I'm sure they will get much use. Materials used: cool braided/cable (there are spools of it in the shop), damaged/salvaged rebar and miscellaneous wire.
