I helped restore an 1884 Victorian in San Francisco with an old ex of mine. As we worked on it, I collected all the old square nails. I have three tins of them. Never knowing what I was going too do with them – I saved them.
Now I have an idea to create an obelisk type construction of old nails and incorporate stained glass somehow. I figured out how to put it together today. Don’t know where this is going but it will be cool. This is part of my history and remnants of the house I had to walk away from.
