My Favorite Episode So Far!
|Difficult to see here, but it is the cast iron from the front of an old store in Vicksburg, MS.|
First, let me apologize for the delay. I had three contracts come in at the same time, my daughter was sick, and I had two papers due. I actually have had seven of these (for Salvage Dawgs) written on my log book, but haven't had time to type them into the blog yet.
|See! Here are my notes!|
I come in today to add the rest of my notes in and I find a kind note from Black Dog Salvage on the first post. You can see it here. http://thesassycountess.blogspot.com/2016/01/salvage-dawgs-season-3-episode-11.html?showComment=1454604647327#c101271434929736070
Why did I love this episode? I really learned a lot:
*Cast iron is brittle
*"It was put up in parts and it has to come down in parts." ~Mike
*Cyprus wood has resistance properties. The upper floor joists were out in the elements for 6 years(? I think this is what he said.)
*Don't remove a bolt that's been there 160 years - You just don't." You'll need to watch the episode to find out how they removed the cast iron.

Their craft project item was a table they made for the home of a country music duo, "Thompson Square."
