Well my Dad wanted to buy some of those tomato plant holders that allow you to hang the plant upside down. Since he is an independent contractor and has a whole bunch of tools I suggested that he make them. I found a couple of tutorials and an instructable online, but I never thought he would follow through with it. I was really surprised to hear that he actually made 4 of them. He went a bit overboard and made this huge setup that suspends the plants. Its pretty cool. I told him he was a hacker/maker, but he did not get it.
Here are some pics:

The posts are supported by the deck and they are tall enough to walk under.
