My first day's work creation of a Country Pie Safe Cupboard


This I would like to share with Ya'll

I've created two country pie cupboards, each in a day. The first image, was the first cupboard built. I took photos all along the process, which took up more time. So the second cupboard, I only photographed the completed piece.

I'll post random images of the creating.

Pattern or design used: My OWN Personal Design, as visioned in my head. Without a Plan!

Inbetween that time, re-modeling the kitchen/bath, garage, building another out building, as well as working on our web sites. And NOW, it's gettin' COLD, so it's on the hunt for fire wood. Gonna be a BIZZZY WINTER here in the Deep South Swamps.
Hope EVERYONE has a Great Day!! Posted: 5:51 am on October 6th

Though because it is Florida, the business is Under appreciated. Still, we try to work around that.
And Jim, I would sell you all wood etc. So WIN that lottery already. I have More Projects than the rest of my life would handle. And it Sure would be Nice to see this stuff going to someone who will bring it all back to life. By the way, how is Elephant's Trunk these days. I Sure Miss doing that market. I use to do very well. Usually sold out by the noon hour. I remember taking my big yellow school bus, which was loaded to the hilt, and sold ALL except two boxes of crap.
They were all over me like hungry antique dealers at a 8:00 am estate sale.
Miss those days..........
Thanks to All for your Very Nice Comments!!
And keep on Preserving our Past for our Future!!

I like what you do too! Pretty KOOL Folk-Art!

If you only seen the objects I've collected to create with.
I like RUST, anything Rusty. Amongst MANY OTHER CraZy Things.

As time goes on, like you, I'll be sharing my creations and ideas. It's all about salvaging our history, for the future history.
Thanks for the Compliments Jim!

I Do Look Forward to Ya'll'z Input!
Thank You and Enjoy! Posted: 11:14 am on October 1st
SwampTreasures_com writes: Oh, I Do "watch" the "nails" Been there and done did that! ;(
Especially using old rusty nails. Though, I've found they are Much Stronger and Much Better than ANY NAIL of today.

I'm Very Appreciative of your Compliment!

In a day or so, I'll have a web page of these creations for Ya'll to look enjoy.

Currently working on it this moment.
But that's another book.

Ya'll have Fun Preserving our Past through Junk'in!!!

SwampTreasures_com writes: It makes me feel Really Good reading all Ya'llz' comments.
Even if not for the money, the patt on the back is Priceless. So again, THANKS SO MUCH EVERYONE!!

By the way, in case anyone is interested, I have been known to build this style cupboard to order. Let me know if you want one. Any Size.
Or, I can SELL MY ENTIRE STOCK of Old Building Materials, and one of you can create.
I just have WAYYYY TOO MANY Junk'ins in the works.
Wait until you see my SwampTreasures. All from materials that Mother Nature supplied.

Enjoy! Posted: 2:17 pm on September 30th

I just sold both of these, not more than 10 minutes ago.

Looks like a trip back to the wood piles.

Who knows, I may sell all my wood/hardware/screen/nails and things that a creative mind could really do something with.

My wood supply is a 20 plus year accumulation from dis-mantled local FloridaPast buildings. Through the years, Many pieces were created.

I'll set up a web page for Ya'll to view the steps in making these, with some comments about.

Hope Ya'll have a GREAT DAY! Posted: 11:22 am on September 30th
