A niece had one. It is for storage. Toys, stuffed animals, socks, underwear,etc. let your mind run wild. How about a cat hotel?

College students would love your idea about the beer can toss :lol:

Hang it out in your back yard and see if some birds will go inside the holes just for the fun of it :mrgreen: Crows might take up residence in the compartments. Crow Condo :o That's what it is.... a Crow Condo :oops: :roll:

A flowering vine that will attract hummingbirds. I'll see if I can find my video of hummingbirds from my camping trip last year. The birds were nesting in a large climbing growth of trumpet flower vines.

It would be good storage for all those damn aluminum cans used for making stoves,bins marked "before" and "after"..perhaps you can put your finished stoves in the different compartments..separated by "model X"..."project".."recycle"..etc...
You could sacrifice a space or two,cut it down, and use a "two or three-high one in your RV for recycle,aluminum,and trash.. :roll:

Yesterday, at the local thrift store, I passed on a 4 footer yellow in color :o I got too much stuff ;)

But!!!! today at the thrift store I bought a wax toilet bowl ring. I made a candle out of some of the wax. I was curious to see how well it burned :P Burns dirty, must be made with paraffin and some other stuff. Last week I passed on a 2 burner coleman camp stove that was priced at 19.95.
