We found this old rocker at a yard sale yesterday. I have this theory about antiques: There are two types of antiques - those that are still around because no one ever used them because they were impractical or uncomfortable, and those that are still around because they were made well. This rocker falls into the latter category: It is very sturdy and still beautiful....

After Bill brought home some wood from an old outbuilding, we found the a perfect base to use for a new work space for storing tools in the workshop. Using the cedar wood from the outbuilding, we soon had wood cut and attached to the wrought iron base. Sanding and a coat of tung oil brought out the beautiful grain of the wood.
When I spotted this primitive set of drawers at a yard sale last weekend, I just had to have it! I attached it to the newest extension of the workbench in our new workshop. I think you'll agree that this is a wonderful find. The drawers say 'Yeast Foam Root Beer.'
