The day before Mothers Day my wife and I attended the Southworth Art & Garden Festival. Up until the Thursday of that week it was predicited to rain (DUH, it’s Seattle, what else would you expect). I took an array of my items to the show. If you notice, one of my display tables looks like a BBQ. Well, in another life it was. This is very easy to accomplish. Strip it down to just the frame and wheels and place a piece of 3/4” plywood for the top and then lay tile or strips of wood (like a floor) for the surface. This one I applied tile with a brazilian cherry border and lower storage shelf. Works great on the patio and keeps the old BBQ from the landfill. The list of items I took was my cutting boards, wine bottle stoppers, peppermills, cribbage boards, last man standing game, corkies (little Reindeer or a horse ornament made from old wine corks) my bistro table set and the patio serving table. Oh yeah, the tu tus hanging from the canopy (yes I made them too). The weather turned out to be just GREAT and was able to show off my wares. Several of my cutting boards and peppermills were adopted by new loving parents. The umbrella on the bistro table came in very handy later in the day. The top of my head remined me later that I should have spent more time under it (or worn a hat). One persons junk/trash is another person treasure (and helps keep the hobby costs down).............
