Its been a long time since I posted to this blog. I'm sorry for my absence. I've been in the doldrums of real work, lack of energy and lack of imagination. I attended a very interesting auction today. The weather was beautiful, 72*, mostly sunny with a breeze and puffy white clouds floating by. The auction took 10 hours (counting my 1 hour travel time, each way). Most of the prices were higher than retail. But I bought the two pieces that I saw in the bill and made me want to attend.
The first is this wonderful green parts bin. I will need to fill in the ends and maybe put a back on the piece, but it is great.
The second is this wonderful steel wheel cart. I will pressure wash the cart, sand and poly the top and remove the handle. It is going to make a wonderful coffee table.
As usual both these items are very heavy. It took four guys to load the bin and 3 to get the cart on the truck. Now we'll see how I get them off all by myself. I will work on them tomorrow. They will be beautiful pieces for the shop.
