#782 Favourite Brick Friday: 98284 Plate, Round 2 x 2 with Pin Hole and 4 Arms Up

This week's favourite brick is the 2x2 round plate with 4 arms that was first introduced in 2012. It's a very useful piece for any trees you might want to make due to the four connection points. These are perfect for attaching 6x5 and 4x3 leaf pieces as shown in techniques by Chris McVeigh and Barbara Hoel.



However, inspired by Ryan Howerter's tablescrap idea to connect the pieces, I used them to create a ornate bench design that I'm quite pleased with. It could easily be extended and requires very few pieces.


Here is the piece on Bricklink: https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?id=105376#T=S&O={"iconly":0}
