    Slow business, built some furniture

    Went to auction at an engine builder's shop, Didn't know a thing about what was for sale machinery wise (there's a reason I work wood not metal) But this was in the corner of the shop and no one bid on it. Except me, can you say stole it. Online this went fairly cheap (no inexpensive is...
