I'm thinking the crafty people are another kind of crafty too, because they like to build a place to park their butt.

This fence not only looks cool, it appears robust enough to stop a raging bull, and sturdy enough to survive children.

It almost looks like a gate.

I like it.

Maybe it is a gate, that would explain that block at the bottom in the center.

The more I look at it, the more I think glatt was right. Not a gate, but a pair of gates, that come together where I drew the white line. Each side is heavy framed, with a grid of 2x4s, then thin boards laid over the grid, interwoven together.

When you finish that gate, you can build saloon doors for the pantry, and a fancy closure for the chastity belt.

I was about to post this folding screen...

... when it occurred to me, it looks like it has a ton of work in, well crafted, but I don't like it. It must be art, which requires good taste.
Then I says to myself, self says I, hmm, I made one of those folding screens I wonder if I've got a picture? Well I know damn well I've got a picture... in one of nine 3-ring binders, bulging with plastic sheets that hold 8 snapshots each, and are in quasi chronological order, except maybe three of them.

Miner's bump cap, carbide lantern, steel toed boots, hold my beer I'm goin' in.
Holy shit, it was rougher than I thought, no cave-ins or paper cuts, but a tsunami of memories and (shudder) feelings.
My god, the things I've forgotten (or suppressed), I was lucky to get out alive, I tells ya.
But I did manage to snatch a couple pictures of some of the tons of shit I've built.

So this is the screen, as you can see it ain't art. I put the black fabric panels in and she added the print on one side. I had a tough time figuring out how I was going to do this until I looked in a hardware catalog (pre-internet) and discovered the hinges they use for saloon doors which have to swing both ways. Then it was a piece of cake to design/build. The pictures are distorted, the verticals are straight as a fucking arrow.

Actually I just knew what I wanted and kept cutting off shit that didn't look like it would be part of that.
