    This was a crate that some equipment was shipped in at work. They were going to throw it away! I saw at and the first thing that popped in my mind was "BROODER!"
    I think I am going to move the side boards to the top and make 2 swing-up doors on the side with wire mesh and a 1X6 at the bottom, then line the floor with linolium(sp?) and I'm going to put legs with rollers on it so I can use it in the barn in the summer and garage in the winter.

    What do you think?
