When my parents bought this one-time farm it had three barns. Two were falling down so they tore them down and used the barnboard in the kitchen and livingroom of the farmhouse. this one remains, filled with junk my brother stashed there through the years. I too have some junk up in the loft from the early 70's.
No idea what this is.
One of my grandfather's tool chests. Probably he made it, as he made most of his furniture. He was a mechanical engineer who worked on the early Locomobile. He went to London in the first world war to do something or other. He traveled on the Lusitania. Grace Mary my grandma followed him to London where they were married. The building of furniture, plus all manner of toys for me, was a hobby.
