My dad is a long time employee for CASE Tractors.  This is an engine crate that was about to be discarded to the burn pile.  My little brother saw it...and knew it was for me!  So he snagged it and gave it to me for Christmas!  I was THRILLED!  I found the frame at the the Habitat for Humanity Store for $5.  I had no clue what it's original use was...but it worked for me perfectly.  A $9 peice of Lattice from Lowes and leftover black paint (which I have tons of!) and viola!  It is currently growing Day Lillies and Scarlet Runner Beans!  So beautiful!  Complete unit is over 9 feet tall!!
