I got a free board to make the last shelf for the work table I just built. I'm not sure where it came from but from the marks on it, it had already been used for something, so I'm counting it as free since it was either salvaged or purchased for a different use and now is repurposed.

I've pretty much wrapped up the 'new' work table, made mostly from salvaged materials and leftover stuff I had on hand, therefore mostly free. I did have to pay about $100 for new lumber for the shelves. Still a bargain IMO, thanks to all the free stuff I was able to use. I'm very happy with the results. Here's what I started with, two salvaged base cabinets.

Here's what I'm ending up with, a nice multipurpose storage space and work surface for various projects.

I got a free 'go red for women' pin at my mom's cardiologist's office on Thursday. I always have lots of pins on my jackets and I put it on right away.
