Rocking Chair Made From Horseshoes
Before he retired, Larry Thompson had a hobby as a horseshoe farrier. So it was only natural that he developed another unique hobby - making furniture out of horseshoes.
  Thompson uses horseshoes to make unique rocking chairs, love seats, horseshoe hooks, and more. He recently sent FARM SHOW a photo of a rocking chair made from used horseshoes, which he painted black.
  "I get used horseshoes from horseshoe farriers that I've known through the years, and I've sold a few items to other people," says Thompson.
  He says the rocking chair is made from about 65 horseshoes. If he needs to bend a horseshoe, he usually does it with a hammer and anvil.
  "Most people use a seat pad to make the chair more comfortable," notes Thompson.
