oh i aint been for a good rumage around a dumpster for ages , not since i've been building CBG's , most dumpsters around here now are privatley owned - if you own a Van or pickup truck you have to book it in and supply your Area post code / Zip code , gone are the days where you could spend a day having a good rumage around ... whats the world comming to ?
it's good seeing what finds you guys have had though !
juju.

I found a broken chair in the trash at the side of the road and thought I heard a voice inside. I took it home and discarded all of the chair that wasn't an instrument then added a few things I created to make it complete.

The result was the Bird of Prey:
