Okay not really. But it does have a history.
First off, I live in a 1930’s “kit” home in Vermont. You know the type – modular. Layouts were in catalogues, etc.
If you visit my “shop” here on LJ’s you’ll catch a picture of one of my two working surfaces in my basement shop. The one I’m talking about here is the home’s original kitchen counter. It was in the basement when I moved here 5 years ago and appears to have served as a bench for quite a while.
Anyway, I took it apart today. Structurally, it wasn’t so sound, so the plan was to tighten this or that, reinforce, etc.
I pulled the drawers out and found a shipping label of sorts from the company in Fitchburg, Mass that milled all the house trim and did the cabinets.
When I pulled the countertop off I found that it had been supported underneath by very obviously recycled T&G sheathing. When I flipped the carcass upside down…
Bits of circus poster.
Words I can make out are “Monster” and “Performing” along with some illustration remnants. Had to share.
I love living in an old house. Check it out!
