    Bourbon Mining

    Well, on PTO for the rest of the year (did not take a day off all year, including weekends for the most part), so I decided to start my next project… problem is I finished it while still working on the phone (got to love those jaw bone ear phone things – I guess ) .

    Something I have wanted to get for a while was an old Mine/Ore Cart to finish off the wine cave theme I started on the house www.straightbourbon.com/forums/showpost.php?p=122250&postcount=287 & www.straightbourbon.com/forums/showpost.php?p=122252&postcount=288. So I was lucky enough to pick up some turn of the last century Gold Ore Cart axels in Sacramento off of Craig’s List and shipped them to Tucson. I decided to follow the same Purple Heart wood theme and built the cart you see in the images in the style of an 1800’s wooden ore cart.

    Now I need to find another project to get me through the next 4 week s – but I am sure I will find things I really need to get done around the house

    Forgot I did that as well. That was last years project. Only one use with the problems I have had on the home front. We were suppose to take it all through the midwest this summer

    I think that is all my projects... for now (I may have a wood issue ).

    I am going to reshoot the bunker and newly taken over "bar" room that the Ore Cart has been stationed.

    I'm getting a week off soon. I only wish it was in the summer. Rather than woodcraft, I will be knitting some bourbon cozies.

    I have been installing a new floor in my house for the last three weeks - that mining cart looks like it was a lot more fun to do. Looking forward to the photos of the new cave and bunker - always an inspiration.

    Purpleheart for the mine car? Pretty luxurious, but then a bourbon mine could afford the best.

    You should set up a bourbon well - a'la Texas oil wells of the late 19th century.
