    Nice looking logs Ralph. Looks like you have the same model plastic John Deere that I have.

    One would think John Deere would not use plastic! A limb fell and poked a hole in the hood. Within a couple of years it vibrated apart. A new one? $2000 or more. Will do without

    Lumber from one tree. Enough to complete my whittling, carving, turning workshop room. Let it dry through the winter and use it in the spring or summer.

    Know how you guys feel with the hoods on green tractors. Have a 2001 JD 5105, plastic side panel on the radiator broke, 18" x 24" little stamped mesh metal panel 8" x 18" - it was $165. Son works for John Deere in ND, asked him if he could get it any cheaper. Said time I paid shipping on it to him, and then down here, I wouldn't save enough to make it worth the hassle. And, as grumpy as Deere gets about selling outside the dealer's territory he didn't want to listen to them bitch. Said they sold someone a part 120 miles away and you'd have thought the world was coming to an end.

    Hood on mine is fiberglass, someone ran into something with it before I bought it, hole in right front corner of the hood about 3"x3" where it ripped a chunk out. $800 for the hood last time I looked. Thought about picking up a fiberglass repair kit and fixing it, but they'll want $250 - $300 for enough paint to paint the hood.

    Can't believe I missed this question.

    Lately I've been picking up pieces of vintage furniture that's beyond salvage and reclaiming the wood. Just bought six mission style chairs (of course none of them match) for 2.00 each and took them apart for the old quarter sawn white oak. Not long ago too apart a dresser for the solid birds eye maple top and drawer fronts that was from the late 1800's. Did buy one chair I was going to take apart until I saw the Stickley label, that one I'll try to use period lumber to fix the two broken legs.
