This item has been sold but I can re-create it, or make one customized for you.
The top of a condemned CO2 tank has been turned into a bell or gong. This is a great piece of yard art and would be an excellent addition as a focal point for a garden. Despite how cute he is, my little buddy Donner is not included in the sale of this bell, he is just there for size reference and because he is so cute.
I hand cut a sun, moon, and star into the top piece. All the metal pieces have been acid washed to speed the aging process so it develops a nice coat of rust or oxidation. This will stabilize after a few months and leave it with a really nice finish. I have heavy duty lag bolts that will screw into the wood to help hold it together. They are not installed right now so that I do not strip out the holes in the wood.
The metal base has holes drilled into the corners so it can be bolted down to a concrete floor or spikes driven into the ground.
Due to its size, diameter and weight it has a different tone than the thin tubes. In my opinion, this sounds much better than the thin tubes as windchimes.
bell or chime is about 4 feet long from its base to the top of the ring and is about 9 inches in diameter. It does not have a windcatcher is made to be rung like a bell. I am using a baseball on a stick as a striker. I will include one with the purchase.
I have several other items I have made from tanks so please check my inventory.
I have posted a video of this bell and all the others I have on Youtube. You can see and hear this bell at:

Since it is so heavy, shipping may be relatively expensive. I am estimating the shipping charges. The buyer will pay the actual shipping charges once they are determined and before the bell is shipped.
