Scored 8 sets of window sashes with some really nice wavy poured lead glass. I replaced the second floor windows in a 1860 farm house (dont worry, its not in an historic district) I have lots of uses for this glass coming up. 1st, I can always use it in my rustic picture frames. 2nd, i have a shaker farmhouse style bookcase in the works (perfect fit) and even a clock on the drawing board.

The first floor windows are also scheduled to be replaced.

LoL I’m in the same boat as you are DYankee!

I brought home some oak cut off from a cabinet shop the one day….last week, and my wife said if I did not find a place to put by 10am this morning she was going to feed them to the trash truck. They were in the third row seat of her surban. I told her you don’t feed oak or ash or even cherry to a trash truck with a firm stance and strong voice. Well if there is one person a Marine does not scare it his wife…........

So I called in a favor from my friend at the muffler shop and we found a place to store in his shop for the time being.

Very nice score on the windows there CampD! I hope to see them in a project photo soon.
