Mango 38

The 38th mango-- the mango that all other mangos lead to. The inevitable mango. The pain in the ass mango. You can't see it in this crappy pic but it has cobwebs on it from sitting on my floor for 9 freaking years. The doors have broken off before at the hinge and I've had to saulder them back on. This was kind of fun to do, but ever since it's been done it's been a pain in the ass. What the hell do you do with something like this? It just sits around collecting dust and cobwebs and making wierd creaking noises at inopportune times of the night. It's a haunted mango...
The flat metal was cut with a plasma cutter. So were the holes. The finish is from some kind of patina stuff I sprayed on it from a spray bottle. I dunno' what it was. The base, probably the most fun part, was set on fire :evil: and then scrubbed at with a wire brush leaving only the hard parts of the wood. I think I lacquered it. I dunno. Gimmie a break. It was 9 years ago. >_<

Dear... lord... it's a big metal mango. I'm sorry, just the idea makes me crack up. Exactly. What do you do with something like that? It's random. What will house guests say!?! It's the odd member of the family.

-_- I thinking about trashing it everyonce in a while but then I'm like, "Hell no! I spent alot of frikkin time on that thing! It's staying!!!" -_- sigh... I wish I could sell it. That would be better, I think. Anyone want a mango that's doors fall off?... heh. That sentence is funny by itself.

You should put it on the mantle! Unless... it's too big, you know.

I don't have a mantel... No fireplace... It just sits on the floor. -_-

Hm... Maybe it could be a centerpiece for the table on holidays.

Heh! Maybe. We can eat mangos for Thanksgiving. It will be the focus. Ooooh. ^_~

Ew, just... ew. But it goes along with a theme! And I love themed parties.

Oh. And it falls over unless you open both doors. That's why my hand is in the pic.
