Let's do a photo sharing of some interesting items in your house or office. It could be a figurine or an item of furniture or a cooking vessel.

Here is mine: A cute wooden robot that can move its arms, legs, and head multiple ways. I only paid about $2.50 for it and love it. It sits on the desk of my office.

Cannot inline images of this image hosting website so have to click below.

I’ve posted this before, but it’s still one of my prize possessions.

Dude! That piece from CP-1 is awesome! "Prize possession" is an understatement. I'm actually kind of surprised anything remained of it to make mementos like that.

My turn. I've had this on my wall since the late 80s or so. One of my favorite cartoons growing up. It's a production cel from the opening title sequence.

That’s pretty amazing!

If you had to pick one cel from the opening, I can’t think of a better one.

I have a thing for vintage powertools..... I picked this up a few years ago, this is what it looked like when I got it:



It's a 1955 craftsman 10" tablesaw, and the internals were used to the 00s, or even later. They might even still be in production. The fence, the body, the wings, all of those were cost reduced over the years to cheap thin stamped sheet metal to save costs, but this thing is all cast iron and thick stampings. Thing is solid and will outlive me.

I also restored a 53 Craftsman Bench grinder, and a 1950s delta drill press. I have a 62 band saw that is functional but I haven't restored it yet.

In my coffee-deprived state, I first read that as “My son would kill with that tablesaw.”
I don't suffer from insanity, I enjoy every minute of it.

Nah.

He prefers a bandsaw for that.

I have some interesting items...

Here's one of my most prized possessions:

Yes, that's an original Chuck Jones pencil sketch.

And in keeping with the "is that a T-Rex tooth" idea,

Both are T-Rex, from Goodie Two Sleeves (the tee shirt folks). Left's card says "If you're happy and you know it, clap your....oh." Right has a reacher (with a Rex head, of course) and his card reads "Unstoppable!" These are interesting for me as an occupational therapist, because reachers are kind of a signature OT assistive device. Both are gifts from my daughter-in-law, by the way (but not from this Christmas).

You would have something as unoriginal and boring as T-Rex as your favorite dinosaur.
