    Stuff you don't need, but realllllly want?

    Surfing the local flea market with the fam today, where I have found some cool old silver spoons and a few Forgecrafts before, I stumbled upon a beast.

    A vintage but in like-new condition end grain maple butcher block. It was probably 24" squared and 12" deep with solid monstrous legs. The joints were dovetailed. He said $250, which I new was a good deal, I said I only had a buck and half on me, and he said he'd take it!

    Right about then the wifey strolled over and proclaimed that wasn't going in her house and we had no place for it. I walked away like a sad little puppy. After talking about it all the way home, she agreed if it was still there I could buy it next weekend and keep it in the workshop.

    Must admit, I have zero practical use for it!

    Alright I'll play. Remington 700, Audi R8, all of the 240's. Does it have to be something I can afford? The DT ITK I just ordered. List goes on.
