we scored some treasures at the farm auction this weekend. I bought a commercial-grade bandsaw (Foley-Belsaw) for $150 and we also purchased about 1500 board feet of rough-sawn lumber (oak and birch) for $75. We are thinking about making wall-coat racks, shelves and bucket benches to sell at the craft shows around here. It seems that these items sell well if item is made from lumber that still shows the circle-saw marks....it's the rustic mystic, I guess. Any other ideas of what one could make from rough-sawn lumber...I'm not a furniture maker and don't have a planer, so any "fancy" items are out of the question. WIHH is a master artist, so how could we combine rustic with paint...signs or wall hangings maybe? But on your creative thinking caps and come up with some ideas for us. We would appreciate any input. This is an example of a rustic coat rack I have made: And this is a so-so example of WIHH painting ability: Give us some new ideas...PLEASE!!!!!
