craigslist freebie


anyone else get any cool freebies from craigslist? i picked this up and it was rotted on one runner, so they needed replacing, but the rest was painted well over the years it seems and had little rust! i used leftover Austrailian Jarrah wood for the handle remake, then used the good ol' boiled linseed oil.
some fresh paint and *presto!* the wife loves it!
and if the motor tiller ever poops out it can certainly be used as it was intended!

Nice, anything like that around here is sold as an antique
Doesn't matter the condition
I've picked up 4x8 mirror, bricks, patio block - all different kinds - 100's
Enough to make a patio & line my gardens
Free seesaw & slide for my son - brand new
Quite a bit of other odds & ends
