    That's pretty sweet. I would mind that or some old metal signs for my garage.

    That is pretty sweet but a bit on the pricey side for a 1 gallon can.

    I have one of those. It is a two part can. The gas goes on the top and the thing splits in the middle and you can put tools or oil in the base. It was my grandfathers, he bought it around 1970 or so. I would never part with it, way to special to me!

    If I could get one of those gas cans for $25 or 30,I'd grab it. No way for $75 though.

    I love they way things were made in the past, so cool.
    It reminds me of the old metal Coleman coolers.

    That Stihl sign is actually probably a good deal. Those old metal and porcelain signs bring big bucks.
    And there weren't many of the Stihl ones made, think about it......post-war German saws really didn't get big in the US til much later than 1958.

    I'm a Stihl-o-Holic.......I'd love to have a sign like that in my workshop!! Just don't want to spend that kind of jingle for it! ;)

    THE FIREPLACE IS FINISHED!!

    As for the room, it's all downhill from here. Flooring, trim, casing the beams in barnwood, and we're golden! Should be done in plenty of time for the Superbowl. Maybe sooner, if everything falls into place. Merry Christmas Mike!

    Scotty-- you can come do my dining room next. I had cold cement walls that I strapped 2x2 and foam insulation to. Still need to finish the drywall, ceramic tiles behind the stove, wainscotting, all the trim. Oh, and move the return vent for the furnace up to the ceiling, install 2 way light switch with dimmer, open up the doorway to the living room, and remove most of the wall between the dining room and kitchen, installing decorative yet functional support posts. Then you can get to work on the two other rooms.

    I'll put you on the list, bud!;)

    I'm so backed up with tree work (have around 15 jobs waiting right now), I'm not sure I'll even be able to get my garage or woodshed done this summer......

    I know the feeling, just wish it was tree work I was backed up on. Come january I hope to get back to work in the dining room, but money keeps becoming a deciding factor on progress.

    I feel your pain, there. We set out on this renovation adventure 7 years ago this coming June......and we knew it was going to be a long road of ups and downs, joys and sorrows, agony and triumph, pleasure and pain. Well, we've experienced every one of those senses in the journey, let me tell ya. Spent WAAAAY more money than we anticipated from the get-go, but luckily the tree work I do on the side helped defer that pain a little. And we have three kids, so time became a factor in the mix too. I didn't want to miss out on my kids' growing, so I took many 'leaves of absence' along the way (to help coach the kids' different sports, to fish and hunt, vacations, and sanity checks), but we factored all that in. We basically ripped our house completely down (sans some of the roof and the outside sheathing), and built a huge addition and renovated the original part. This living room is the last step of the journey, and that fireplace was the biggest job in that part of the house. Starting to see the proverbial 'light in the tunnel' now.....all that is left is a couple items and then it's on to the garage....then the basement......then the woodshed....then the outside wood-fired oven.....:rolleyes:

    I'll never EVER be 'totally' done... ;lol
