A Little Creativity Behind the Barn

Never give a farmer a welder!!
When you live on a farm you learn to”make do” with whatever you find in the barn!! This is the exact & perfect example of why we save everything.
This car has been built with all of the “junk” laying out back in the pile, & under the work bench, & stuffed in the rafters.
All this guy needed was a little time on his hands.
Body of the car is a manure spreader….Milk can fuel tank

Check out the “gearing wheel”….What do you see? Dash is a two man saw blade is a cross cut saw —
Tractor hand brake – tachometer – 2 mirrors mounted on horse shoes – big truck signal switch
mounted on left – single wiper motor.

Cow milking apparatus on air cleaner – galvanized wash tub fan shroud –

Tractor wrench bracket for corn planter headlamp housing
Rear seats from toilet with stereo speakers below them – Newhome seat backs including an Oxen yoke!!
E
The rear lamp frame built with saw blades & a chicken feeder box – manure spreader drive is still
intact – horse shoe door hinges
Tractor seats with pitchfork backs – seat belts – tractor compartment box behind driver seat – gear shift beside
hand brake – stereo & CD player on dash blade – the drive chains are still on the floor board. Also please note
that he put in seat belts – So is he street legal ?

*TOOLS EXPLAINED*

*DRILL PRESS:* A tall upright machine useful for suddenly snatching flat
metal bar stock out of your hands so that it smacks you in the chest and
flings your beer across the room, denting the freshly-painted project which
you had carefully set in the corner where nothing could get to it. (I’ve done it)

*WIRE WHEEL:* Cleans paint off bolts and then throws them somewhere under
the workbench with the speed of light . Also removes fingerprints and
hard-earned calluses from fingers in about the time it takes you to say,
‘Oh shit!'(I’ve done it)

*SKIL SAW:* A portable cutting tool used to make studs too short.(I’ve done it)

*PLIERS:* Used to round off bolt heads. Sometimes used in the creation of blood-blisters.(I’ve done it)

*BELT SANDER:* An electric sanding tool commonly used to convert minor touch-up jobs into major refinishing jobs.

*HACKSAW:* One of a family of cutting tools built on the Ouija board
principle… It transforms human energy into a crooked, unpredictable
motion, and the more you attempt to influence its course, the more dismal
your future becomes.(I’ve done it)

*VISE-GRIPS:* Generally used after pliers to completely round off bolt heads. If nothing else is available, they can also be used to transfer
intense welding heat to the palm of your hand.(I’ve done it)

*OXYACETYLENE TORCH:* Used almost entirely for lighting various flammable objects in your shop on fire. Also handy for igniting the grease inside the
wheel hub out of which you want to remove a bearing.

*TABLE SAW:* A large stationary power tool commonly used to launch wood
projectiles for testing wall integrity.(I’ve done it)

*HYDRAULIC FLOOR JACK:* Used for lowering an automobile to the ground after you have installed your new brake shoes, trapping the jack handle
firmly under the bumper.

*BAND SAW:* A large stationary power saw primarily used by most shops to
cut good aluminum sheet into smaller pieces that more easily fit into the
trash can after you cut on the inside of the line instead of the outside
edge.(Do it all the time)

*TWO-TON ENGINE HOIST:* A tool for testing the maximum tensile strength of
everything you forgot to disconnect.

*PHILLIPS SCREWDRIVER:* Normally used to stab the vacuum seals under lids
or for opening old-style paper-and-tin oil cans and splashing oil on your
shirt; but can also be used, as the name implies, to strip out Phillips
screw heads.(I’ve done it)

*STRAIGHT SCREWDRIVER:* A tool for opening paint cans. Sometimes used to convert common slotted screws into non-removable screws and butchering your
palms.(I’ve done it)

*PRY BAR:* A tool used to crumple the metal surrounding that clip or bracket you needed to remove in order to replace a 50 cent part. (I’ve done it)

*HOSE CUTTER:* A tool used to make hoses too short. (I’ve done it)

*HAMMER:* Originally employed as a weapon of war, the hammer nowadays is used as a kind of divining rod to locate the most expensive parts adjacent
the object we are trying to hit. It is especially valuable at being able
to find the EXACT location of the thumb or index finger of the other hand. (I’ve done it)

*UTILITY KNIFE:* Used to open and slice through the contents of cardboard cartons delivered to your front door; works particularly well on contents
such as seats, vinyl records, liquids in plastic bottles, collector
magazines, refund checks, and rubber or plastic parts. Especially useful
for slicing work clothes, but only while in use.(I’ve done it)

*SON-OF-A-BITCH TOOL:* (A personal favorite!) Any handy tool that you grab and throw across the garage while yelling ‘Son of a BITCH!’ at the top
of your lungs. It is also, most often, the next tool that you will need. (This happens to me all the time)

I hope you found this informative.

My record of committing the above sins is 15/19, that is the voice of experience, er stupidity speaking.

I’m Taking Orders

Since September I have been burrowed in my wood shop creating works of art. Actually, the art is by Judy Gale Roberts whose patterns I used to craft her vision of flowers. At this point I am ready to take orders for any or all the flowers I have executed in wood. The only warning I have is that if you have to ask what the price is you cannot afford one of these pieces. I am getting quicker in my execution, and my skill level is improving, but it still took over forty hours to make each of these seemingly simple designs. Here they are:

Sunflower-September, 2015

Phalaenopsis Orchid, October 2015

All orders received will be delivered in the future. Specific dates cannot be made since I don’t know when or how I will be able to work on your request. If I commit, I promise to surprise you with a beautiful flower from the 2015 Monet Vision- Wood Flowers
