These are Great Pieces

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.

The parts bin is great, but I LOVE the cart!!! I hope you keep it. It will be an awesome coffee table. Makes a 10-hour auction worthwhile, doesn't it!

so... when you have company and they say "pass me the..." are you just going to send the cart rolling over to 'em?

OR! If you ever got bored you could just use it as a skateboard... I would!

;-D LOVE it!
