A tractor parts crate put to a new use
Parts for the tractor came in this crate. It had too many possibilities to be broken up and burned.

A tractor parts crate put to a new use

The crate in which new tractor parts came, had too many possibilities! With a few modifications and a stand made to hold it, it became a primitive cabinet. I liked the way the finish turned out on my last post, so tried it again. It seems fitting, to put it out in the machine shed and fill it with tools, fluids and parts for tractor maintenace.

Pattern or design used: My own design
