    I was modeling up a future speaker idea, the girlfriend said it looks like a grain elevator. Well, she's not wrong...Or maybe it's just that grain elevators look like speakers...What do you think? Click image for larger version

      Looks like a duplex bird house to me.

        You could also paint them to look like the silo to match farm house motif ....

          I was thinking to maybe finish them with some reclaimed wood and put the SK Wheat Pool logo on the side ;). I even found a SVG of the logo for print.

            Also resembles a Clock Tower.

                I'm just delighted to learn there is a town named Elbow, Saskatchewan. Only about 68 miles as the crow flies from Moose Jaw.

                I worked in a grain elevator during harvest one year, in the next town over from Holstein, Nebraska, where I lived. There was a sign in the post office lobby reminding patrons to turn the light off when they left. Boy, was that some dusty, dirty work during harvest. Hours were long and the pay was low, but the beer was cold and the food was cheap.

                  Yeah we've got some oddly named towns up here that's for sure. There's also an Amsterdam, Saskatchewan as well, though it's not as exiting as it sounds.

                    I honestly don't think they look bad, kinda reminiscent of Eggelstons.

                      Thanks, I don't think they look bad either, just entertaining some ideas. I'm trying to go for something a bit more exciting than just a square cabinet, but not too complicated to construct. I actually think it might be neat to finish them like an old grain elevator. Maybe finish the sides with some white washed floor boards or something like that.

                        With that color scheme, it looks like a robot nun to me.

                          Sounds a little Freudian to me, Paul...
