    Cleaning out one of the barns, I found a old tractor light from our first tractor (a 57 Ford Powermaster). I cleaned it up and gutted the old wiring. Then I wired in a USB cable and put a LED light on it. Made a nice piece of office art to preserve some of the farm history.

    I found some old rail road luggage cart wheels at a flea market. They want hundreds of dollars for luggage carts so I went into the woods and got some wood from a barn that had fallen (and no one can see it so I am the only one who knows where it is) and made a cart. Some of the hardware is new and just faux painted the rusty look. Cost me about $100 in total to make. [​IMG]
