So I did this today while I couldn't work outside. The galvanized nest boxes are from my farm junk pile, I fixed the magneto, crank and ringer on the phone and hung it up. Too bad I don't have a land line anymore. The table I made thirty years ago from scrap railroad heavy crating wood. Call it recycling, upcycling or shabby chic, I call it farm junk. I don't know which way the table is better or more functional. I only ever have a couple people for nonprofit meetings.

I wish he would share photos of that room, I bet it is beautiful. Talented man for sure. Everything he has is right up my alley. I love things like that. My Dad was an upholsterer and very talented with restoring things, mostly antiques, miss that.

Who knows where he is right now he gets into so much on his farm.
It made it to 54 degrees this afternoon before it started raining. This is what I'm working on right now. It's a 1925 McCormick Deering 10-20 tractor. It's a distillate tractor, so will run on kerosene etcetera.
