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.

Chandelier made from horse powered treadmill flywheel

     I had this 5'-0" wide flywheel that came from and old horse powered farming treadmill and made it into a rustic chandelier. 
Below is an image of a similar wooden flywheel used in my chandelier above.  
Image cf.
     There's twenty-one lights hanging from the wheel - I uses mason jars for the globes. I had my nephew up to help with the wiring of the fixture.  I painted the wiring and box to blend in with the wheel. 
     Wish i didn't have such a busy back ground that's not so busy to  show up the lamp better. But its over the top.
