When you work with old materials such as antique logs, it’s inevitable that you start to acquire piles, and piles, of misc materials.
Whenever a pile would reach a stage where I could build something out of it I’d put the crew on a mission to do just that.
I’d generally pick the newest crewmen… the ones with the least experience and the lowest level of confidence. I’ve always found that the best teacher in this trade is found in the act of “doing”.
I guess that’s true of most things.
I’d often sell these “odds and ends” structures at, or below, cost. I long ago lost track of the number of these that were built. But, here is one, under construction, to share with you today.
