top/ a cat's paw- not the cat's paw in a carpenter's belt, but the actual animal appendage
second/ the mailbox on highway 92 in Countyline that is covered with trumpet vines and cacti. I always wonder what the mail carrier thinks about that mailbox.
third/ an upside down rocking chair. I wouldn't advise anyone to sit in this thing.
fourth/ Abe the dog enjoying a turkey leg.
fifth/ my cat Sally used to sit on my shoulder. I tried to emulate the up-close sight of looking at a cat on one's shoulder.
It can serve as a bench. It can serve as a chair- or two. It can serve as a set of wheels to race upon.
This piece was constructed from tongue-and-groove ceiling boards and posts from a demolished house in historic Eufaula, Alabama. The sides of the back rest are made from salvaged hickory and poplar. Put some 3 inch casters on the bottom and, viola, a Ukrainian loveseat.
This shop is never void of weird ideas. Sometimes I find myself thinking about some far-off distracting thing and I have no idea where it came from. So I reduced the occurrences to be a result of unknowingly seeing random sights around the shop- Kinda like in the '80s when Coke displayed subliminal messages of mouth-watering fountain drinks during the previews at the theatres. Except I haven't been seeing mouthwatering Co-colas around the shop, I have been seeing these non-watering things-- plus a whole bunch more.
