This looks like a bottom of a old barrel, but it was made to measure a half bushel of grain. So I got an old milk separator stand and put them together to make a night stand or corner table.

This blog shows the folkart I make, my reproduction furniture and other projects. My studio/shop is in my backyard. It's a couple of miles off the main road in West Prince County, Prince Edward Island, Canada. When you come to visit make sure you see – the "Olde Times" Garden House Museum; Grandma's Attic; the Furniture Box; Grampa's Loft (antiques, old doors, etc. in my Dad’s old barn loft); and my World's Largest Egg Beater, certified by Guinness World Records.

Ships Wheel Light Fixture
I've picked up ships wheels before but this is the oldest one yet. I made a light fixture from it.
Its 36" across, the chains can be shortened if needed.The words engraved on the side of the wheel could be the name of the ship or the name of the captain of the ship.
What a great conversation piece - imagine the stories that could be told.

Here are a few things I made today - first, a set of skies for a shelf.
Second, a suite case for a set of shelves.
And third, I bought this stained glass window on Sunday - it was missing glass from the middle, so I made a shelf in it.
