1001 Uses for a dead Hard Drive

Number #1 (Taking it apart).

There is something truly gorgeous about spending a happy pointless hour in the total destruction of a once valuable piece of precision engineering!

At this point you have aquired, some gold coloured, shiny disks, a bit like CD's only a bit smaller and made of metal. I found two uses for them in the garden!

Number #2 (Bird Scarer)

Here you can see one protecting our strawberries!

Number 3 (Arch decoration/wind chime)

I suspended a number from our garden archway. Not only do they make a nice wind chime, the reflections continuosly dance round the garden.

As you can see I even tried night lighting....

Coming soon

#4 (A coaster! - a bit obvious really!)

#5 (Bicycle wheel decoration)
