I'm looking for ideas

Anyone have an idea for this dish. It's a whopping 8 feet in diameter.
I saw this on the side of the road, stopped the car, and my DW jumped out and inquired about it from the adjacent homeowner - he gave it to her. 10 minutes later two neighbors and I loaded it on my little truck, twenty minutes after that it was disassembled and in the back yard. Now to find a use for it.

First I'm going to use it as a mold to make the base of a birdbath/fountain. But then I'll still have it to do something with.

I know I've seen a pic somewhere but can't find it now where one of those large satellite dishes was used as the roof for a pergola.

Here's a discussion on another forum...

The hospital where I work converted a dish into a fountain. The water creates a pool in the dish and then flows over the side to another part of the fountain. I would never have known if someone didn't tell me.

My first thought was the pergola too! I think it was posted here somewhere.

With your talents though, I'm sure you could do something really wonderful. It looks a lot like an ufo to me ...I'll bet you could add some little martians made from metal junk to go along with it!

Make sure you post your creation here for us to see!

Check over in the Garden Junk forum, this isn't an unusual topic over there.
