This is my idea of recycling old electricity cross beams and resisters – ok so it is one of them. It took a bit of advice from the Lumberjocks and a bucket of Molasses slurry, and playing with a whole new lots of power tools – and I had a ball – the timber was exposed to the weather for over 100 years and the resisters are even dated 1948 and 1952. I sanded the timber by hand because it have me the feel of finish I was looking for and then coated it in an acrylic satin finish. I sanded the metal – and then put it together – I am really happy with the results – and sold it the first time I took it to the public – I have other pieces I have made – I am probably never going to be the artisan that many of you guys are – and yet I find myself delightfully immersed in my new hobby – thankyou guys for all your help – Terina C – the recycling artist (tee hee) If you can’t work it out – it is a coat/hat rack.
