    By looking at it and the drift wood pole in the base the two bolts in the post will go in the top and bottom holes in the picture. The metal bracket is just for working on it?

    Gizmo looking good. The only think I would change and this is just me running this by you how I like things to look is. I would not use so many different kinds of plant,leaves and branches. Small stuff I know but that pine branch just looks out of place to my eye with all the rest. You have like 6 or so items mixed in and to me just not as natural looking to me.

    Not trying to be a =sshole just giving you some feedback.

    No worries Bill, I like having everyone's different perspectives. I think it makes me better.
