Umbrella Built Out Of Old Aluminum Satellite Dish
My friend Henry Woosley of Belvidere, Ill., built this umbrella out of an old aluminum satellite dish. He turned the dish upside down and mounted support brackets on the underside of the dish. He used a piece of plywood to make a table and ran the pole through it, then stuck the pole in the ground. He welded 4 L-shaped angle iron braces onto the pole to support the table.
  The umbrella sets in a walkway between his house and garage. He says he likes to sit outside under the umbrella and listen to it rain. To add some color he also attached Christmas lights to the outside edge of the dish. (Doug Schiller, 345 Biester Dr., Belvidere, Ill., ph 815 979-4591; flagcaddie@gmail.com)
