RECYCLING IN THE GREAT WHITE NORTH

 

KING OF OBSOLETE DOING WHAT I CAN WITH THE RECYCLED METAL BECAUSE I CAN'T AFFORD THE NEW STEEL FOR MY PROJECTS.

 

 

HERE WE ARE GETTING OLD UNDER GROUND FUEL TANKS FROM LEAF RAPIDS, MB. OF COURSE BUDDY BARRY IS DELIVERING THEM. THEY ARE GOING TO MAKE VERY NICE BOATS BECAUSE THEY DIDN'T GET ALL DENTED UP.

 

 

 

THE KoO SIGN FROM LAST SUMMER BEING MADE INTO A SHED. WE MUST USE EVERY SPACE IN THE "KINGDOM" FOR STORAGE BECAUSE I'M GETTING TO OLD TO FIND MY COLLECTABLES IN THE SNOW.

JULY 2005, MAKING SIDES ON BUDDY BARRY'S TRAILER TO HAUL THE LAST OF THE SCRAP METAL FROM THE SCRAP YARD.

THE FINISHED TRAILER, WOW DID IT TURN OUT NICE CONSIDER WHAT I HAD TO WORK WITH. ONCE AGAIN THE "KING" WORKED HIS MAGIC. LOL

THESE ARE SOME OF MY TANK SHEDS THAT ARE MADE OUT OF OLD FUEL TANKS. THIS IS KNOWN AS THE "CAT PARTS SHED" AND IT HAS A TROLLEY BEAM TO GET THE BIG STUFF TO THE BACK OF THE SHED. OF COURSE THE BEAM IS RECYCLED TOO. (WE DON'T KNOW WHAT THE TAXMAN WILL BE CALLING THIS SHED YET, HE MIGHT BE CALLING IT "ADD $500". LOL)
