750 sq. feet of Hemlock milled from the salvaged pilings of the Fore Street Bridge in Quincy MA, 700 square feet of cedar shingles with bleaching oil, and a 10 foot by 4 foot casement window found their way into back of a rental truck yesterday, and this morning I got the truck over the island.
No corkscrews were found, however. At least not in my travels.
However, there was an interesting listing on eBay, that looks to have a nice American patent, and as fortune would have it, I was at a lengthy stop light, and glanced at my iPhone to see the listing. Definitely a plus to have added the eBay app : ) And, to have been stuck at a traffic light, and to have seen the lot first : )
I snapped it up, and hopefully, when the lot arrives, the Chinnock patent nicely marked…
Tomorrow, I head back to the mainland to return the truck, and seek out some soapstone tile for the bathroom in the new house. It is really coming together!
