I first asked by husband if he could make me the wooden cone shaped base. He didn't answer me right away (he was thinking), but he loves a challenge. It did take him quite a while to finish the base as he used a pine log and had to shape it and then place the nails in. That was the hardest part - Whew -not me....him!
|This was after three rows of large apples. I think next year, we will cut about 4" off the top, it was a little bit higher than what we planned, but thought it worked out well. Just push the apples onto the nails and stagger each row.|
