I never throw anything away.
It’s even worse than my tool addiction.
I REALLY never throw anything away.
BUT – -
It can have a positive spin!
For years, I haven’t been able to throw away any wooden handle from old mops, broom, shovels, ice choppers and what have you.
It represents manufactured wooden articles that may become useful someday, and when that day comes, I’ll be vindicated!
So – - – the day has arrived.
I’m restoring an old rocking chair.
Correction: I’m resurrecting one. This thing was dead.
It had big dowels in the rockers, which rockers are now passed beyond. They just didn’t exist when I took the chair in. Bigger than any dowels I have in my supplies.
But one of those good old handles I had saved was the perfect size to replace the old, now rotten, useless dowels in the chair.
Not throwing things away can be a good thing – - – if you wait long enough.
Heh heh heh heh.
