Barn sash windows...

Hi Everyone!  I hope your week is off to a great start.  Have you ever heard of barn sash windows?  Around here, these are what are called barn sash windows.  It's just a simple single paned window.  I didn't know that they were called that until I was having a conversation with Uncle Bill and he was telling me about some and then two days later I found these leaning up against my shop door.  They were from Uncle Bill.
They are old and dirty but in great shape.  And they will be great once I clean them up.  Thanks Uncle Bill!
I'm not sure what I'm going to do with this one yet...
But I'm thinking of turning this one into a door for a cabinet.  We'll see if that actually happens.
And I thought I'd show you the bench I started working on and hope to have built tomorrow on my day off.  I have so much to do tomorrow.  The fair is going to be here before I know it.  I only have two days off left and this weekend to get everything done that I have planned.  I dropped some wreath stands off at my parents house so my mom could paint them for me.  This weekends storms really put me behind schedule.  I have a lot of work to get done.  And I need to get back to it.  Thanks so much for stopping by.
