Can you play Fisher's Hornpipe on the fiddle?
Hey Fawteen, I met one of your Bah Hahbah naybahs taday. Feller name of Bryant Wood(s?). Works for the Gubmint over to Acadia N.P. Pretty good geetar player. He can do stuff I wish I could do. Nothin fancy, just clever.

Really nice looking stuff! I wish I had some artistic ability, but I just don't. I could use that stool out back in the yard.

Pretty fancy stuff there F14! My blacksmith buddy started tacking old rake teeth rogether and made a BIG flower. A fella in Frazee made a full-size iron moose for the park. I remember it has an old stove front for one flank. I like stuff like that & yeah heck it would sell. :)

That is real special stuff, F14.....never tried that type of fabing, all mine has been for repair or fabricating, iether for myself or for the people I work for.....lots on "cats" and stuff. Have had a "dream" for the past few years, for a gate on the drive way....two posts, out of one eighth plate about six feet high X two foot square with old standby four sided "roof", set into a good concrete base. Then....If you are familiar with Norse hystery, a silouhett of the "Oseberg" ship, done with endless tubing, 1 1/4", to mimick the planking of the ship. this would be cut in half, verticle, in the middle so that each half swung on the gate posts. the ship itself would be painted black, anything not "ship" would be white. This is a "must do" project upon shop completion. Realy enjoyed your pics, deep up the excelent work, have a gooder, R.E.L.

What talent you have! Those pieces are really an original work of art. If you ever sell them be sure to classify them as original and you might want to throw in the catch phrase, for today at least, folk art. Heck I would go for it, that is how I got into selling my mosaic tile pieces that I cut. Yours takes talent mine just take a pair of glass cutters and strong hands.

Thanks for sharing.

Dunno about the "talent" thing. I just sorta stare at the junk pile for a while, and a picture forms in my mind. I gotta find me a coupla more drag harrows, I think I could pass off a bunch of them little plant stools.

My wife is all fierce to have a mosaic piece for the garden. You got any pictures of your work?

I do the easy part I just cut the china plates and sell those pieces. Now if she wants some glass etched, we have an industrial sandblaster like the kind I used at our Award place. I etch glass, mirrors, mugs, well anything glass. I keep waiting for Dennis to finally get it hooked up because it is a big machine with a 8 hp air compressor and if I hook it up I just know I'll blow something away.

When it finally gets a going I will post a picture or two or three or more!!!LOL

Around our house, we don't call nothing junk, it's resources. How well I found that out when my husband took the motor from the door of an old car with electric windows and and a few pieces and parts and made an automatic vent openers for the green house. Temperature went up, vents opened, temperature went down, vents closed
