Unloading 101

I got the parts bin and steel wheeled cart out of the truck, without damage to the pieces, the truck or me. I used the 4 wheeler with a nylon strap to extract the pieces slowly from the truck. I pulled them out, supporting them with the strap under the end and softly dropped them on my little garden trailer (with the sides removed). The bin is not too heavy with the drawers removed. There are decades of accumulated dust all over the piece so I took my leaf blower out and blew everything that would move.

Next I get to pressure wash the entire piece. I have to build some sides for the piece. I am going to use some barn wood that is nicely grayed for the sides. It isn't the mellow green on the face but it will match the stripped places and the top.

I'm off to apply some pressure. (Wash that is).

Well we'll try not to apply any pressure ..on you ... to blog daily :))
Those are two great treasures!
You would laugh at the things I move, load and unload by myself too.
But a little bit of ingenuity, leverage and darn determination seems to work!

THAT is the coolest thing I've seen in a looooooooooong time... do you know how much fabric and assorted other junk that could hold?!
