New use for old saws....

Hello everyone, sorry to be gone so long, I have been working on lots of projects and I hope to share pictures with you now that fall is here...
One new project is a memo board I made from several old saws that I purchased from a scrap iron dealer at our local fleamarket for next to nothing, actually not sure how much I paid a piece for them, I go a whole load of stuff that day for $15.00... anyway got about 9 of these rusted saws and just knew I would fine a project for them.  I decided to make a memo board since they are magnetic.  After removing the handles I used the handle screw holes to attach each one to an old picture frame that I had.  I lined them up horizontally in a pattern that I liked and screwed them in using the existing holes. Once finished I used some polyurethane to seal in the rust cause we wouldn't want to lose that beautiful rust color that we all love.  Made a couple of magnets out of some calendar number just so people would know what this piece of rusted mess was.  This is the best picture that I had. I took it to the flea market to sell and I added the fall vine for decoration.
Thanks for stopping by...
