It’s still there

  So many of these large timbers under every tank I haul from. 

Still trudging along looking forward to some time at my bench. Night 10 of a 12 day shift. Hauling this fluid is such soul robbing work. The longer I go, the more I think home, family, and wood. The company I haul for has these huge 3×12 boards supporting every tank. There’s at least 10,000 tanks. It’s not exotic wood,mostly pine and fir, but I think what I might make from these large pieces. Chairs, tables, a massive workbench, the possibilities are limited only by your creativity. What would you build?

  Meanwhile I’ll get back to reality
