I love old wood.
I especially like unusual old wood.
When I'm at an auction, I'm always
on the lookout for really old wood,
preferably on things that are broken or missing parts,
because those are often the things other people don't want.
that appears someone intended to make a gun with,
I couldn't pass it up.
I wasn't sure what I would do with it,
I just know my bidding finger flew up quick,
and next thing I knew, I was carrying a shotgun
home with me...or part of one.
I gotta admit - toting a gun over my shoulder,
albeit, only half a gun with no barrel or bullets,
made me feel kinda tough gal...ish.
and in my continuing effort to create useful things
with all the stuff packed in my workshop,
I spotted it and decided to turn it into a coat rack.
loves it and is getting it for her husband.
Here are a few other coat racks and wall hooks
I finished this week from my workshop stash.
