Inspired by the wooden grain elevators that once stood by railroad tracks all across the High Plains, the Estacado Tall Case is constructed from sandblasted and dyed white ash lumber. Door and side panels are made from recycled sheet metal that probably originally served as side panels on a combine or thresher. Years of lying on the ground, and being tromped on by cattle and goats, have given the panels their special texture and patina. The door pull is a jack gear from a harrow section—a plow that saw a lot of use prior to the Dust Bowl days. The steel stand once supported a feed grinder that was powered by a long belt running from a tractor flywheel pulley.
