See these flat files? About 36 years ago I was with my partner in our electrical business, David James (painter and very nice guy). We were in SoHo and saw a sign:
FLAT FILES 60 BUCKS, YOU HAUL!!!
We happened to be driving his panel van so we stopped. I bought one and I think he bought two. They weigh a freaking ton, I am not kidding, these are back busters. I was 27 and after a few years of warehouse work and as an electrician I could handle them. So David and I muscled them into his van.
I've been hauling mine around for all those years. Moving them in and out of studios. Loading them into trucks and trailers. Taking work out, putting it back in. I'm thinking this is their final destination, back to my studio from upstairs. I built a nice wheeled table so I can move them around the studio if I need to change things up.
I was going to toss them because while they are flat files they are kind of flat, little skinny drawers. Yet they hold a lot and they keep things flat. Plus this is the kind of thing to leave your kids. They need some old 60 dollar flat files in their future. Right?
Eight more drawers...whew... Now I'm 62 and soft as hell after 30 years of university teaching. Taking lots of breaks.
