Toy Machine Shed
Albert Anderst, Medicine Hat, Alberta, cut a 45 gal. fuel tank in half to make a miniature quonset-type machine shed for his grandson Jared.
Anderst used the top of the tank as the end wall and cut a sliding hole in the other end and fabricated a sliding door. He also installed 2 by 2-in. footings and a 1/2-in. plywood floor.
He ran a clear Christmas tree lightbulb in through the back to light up the interior, which he coated with aluminum paint. Jared stores all his, toy farm machinery in the shed, which resembles a shed on the Anderst farm.
