This ebay purchase was an old gear board that someone painted
My friend Charlie had this giant spinning wheel in his shop for over a year and I always liked it so two weeks ago he brought it to me with a yarn winder. He looked through the furniture in the old house and picked out a cherry table, a small marble top table, and a mahogany hall tree. He is happy because what he took home will actually sell in his shop.
Of course, I'm very happy. I think there are enough parts that it will spin correctly.
Here are some egg gourds drying in the front yard.
My great uncle gave this to my father who tied a barrel to the top for hauling water. This is my before photo, because I am going to build a box for the top and add handles to create a peanut or flower cart.
I'm looking at photographs of old vending carts now and have found some really nice ones to use as a guide.
These are the regular size gourds drying in the field. They have turned the best shade of tan.
Here are more of them drying on what we call the bachelor bed, as it first belonged to a great great uncle who never married.
Well, that's enough walking for now... I'm ready to go back inside and see if the Pickers have bought anything good.
