OK... lets make a baguette peel (can also be used for bagels) out of a paddle that washed up on the beach! Looks nasty (photo 1)... sand off the varnish and slosh on some oil and she is good to go! (photo 2).

I liked this project because it was... simple & free!

Wonder what I can make from this... (photo 3) ... that is the nice thing about being Canadian... there is usually a snowshoe around if you need one for a project... :rolleyes:

Re: Rustic Primitive Tools
Well I see you finally made your bread peel from the old oar. Looks like it will do the trick. My seeds were planted Friday and yours are in the mail.

Re: Rustic Primitive Tools
I hope you don't discover a real good use for the snowshoe related to the oven :confused:. Because, I doubt very seriously that I would be able to "scrounge" one on Mississippi's Gulf Coast :D.

Seriously, I see canvas, paints, and brushes. Do you have a link to some of your work?

Re: Rustic Primitive Tools
Annie, you are even further north than "nawth"! I don't get out all that much. Would think you about linking some to Piccassa or Photobucket?........... Is that a lithograph camera ?

Re: Rustic Primitive Tools
It is a camera... old style. Shoots big negatives 7 inches x 11 inches (which coincidentally is the same proportion as the door opening to the vault of my oven!)

Anyhoo... back to tool making! :)

Looks like we were posting at the same time... actually right now I am ploughing through my old work for a web site & I am getting ready for a show... will keep you in the loop when I am organized!! :)

Hi Annie,
Well, I'm forging ahead (well, maybe forging isn't quite the right word, perhaps muddling is better!).
Hope you are going well - would love to see a "finished" photo of your oven.

Hi Annie,

I`m having a difficult time securing quality 8X10 film, where in the heck do you get 7X11 film, or are you doing paper negatives? Who`s the maker of that camera?
