I'm suprized at the lack of activity in here. I thought this would be one of the busiest groups. So anyway, my latest build is from wood saved from the trash trucks grip. Over 100 yr old black…Continue

I seriously thought that this would be a more active group. After all there is so much "treasure" thrown out everyday! Anyway I recently found boxes of old brass plumbing fixtures in a storage unit I…Continue

Yikes! The planet is far too disposable. K

LOL, I'll take a pic tomorrow and post it. People in this neighborhood throw away good stuff all the time.

I get at least one truck load a month of metal bits and ends that I take to the scrap yard for extra cash.

I want pics Paul.

Got a new work table off the curbside today. It's well built, 3 foot square, 3 foot tall, 4 drawers, legs made of 3" x 3" and on wheels. Great find and I've already used it.

Hit the jackpot today with my weekly curbside shopping. A rental house was being cleaned out and I got a standing gas grill with side burner in good shape. While I was loading it in the truck, a guy across the street asked me if I needed a window unit AC. I was stunned and said yes. My living room window unit went out at the end of summer last year, what a blessing. It's small, but it works. All I had to do to it was clean it and put a new cord on it.

The possibilities are endless.

Comment by Paul Craig on October 6, 2016 at 4:19pm

That's right should be enough for a few things. Could just build a box around the tines and string up to the handle. Hahahaha

Comment by Thomas "Duck" Petry on October 6, 2016 at 4:08pm

Hey Paul, there should be enough there for a couple of Kalimbas too.
