« Part 95: Company... Part 96 of Just for Fun... series Part 97: Another "Quick Fix", and a Question... »

Took a little break from the Re-Painting scene and squeezed in some Shop Time… Can You guess what I made?
Began with a scrap 2 X 4 appropriately long enough for the task at hand and shaped the first profile with the Band Saw…

Since the 2 X 4 didn’t have a very flat bottom, it was clamped between two scraps of Poplar that are flat… The Clamps were Leapfrogged down the length of the big ‘Sandwich’ as it was cut…
Which gave this…

More Profile cuts were plotted, using a penny and a convenient bucket lid for the marking…

All Band Saw work on this little Project…

Some holes had been drilled already, and after some filing and sanding, small dowels were added…

Done deal! Nothing left to do but hang it up…

Any guesses what it’s for??? :)

how about a hanger for debbies necklaces
to catch and spread the light around the room
like a prism

I’m guessing earthquake protection. It keeps those plants from swinging into the widows and breaking them during earthquakes.

My guess is that its a rack for drying stuff as its in your workshop.
The reason being is I am assuming the shovel that is visible is not in the bedroom or other parts of the new house !

Robert: Cleaning out the front hallway closet, I found the last of the Snow Shovels… Since we won’t be needing the Shovel again until the latter part of this year, it’s in our Sun Room/Laundry Room, on it’s way out to the Shed… Not the Shop, and not a Drying Rack…

I’m not sure what it is, Mike, but it looks neat!

I’d use it to hang starter plants in the sunlight.

I like Topo’s answer. We seem to be having more earthquakes.

It is on the inside so it can’t be for the birds to roost on.
It can be for hanging targets with the windows in the back ground.

I’d say it is for hanging those little crystals on to have multi-colored lights dancing around the room in the sunlight.

Cheers, Jim

on second thought
you could save money on utility bills
hang your underwear from the washer
to dry in the sun
or would make a good place to hang your tin foil hats too

well mike i can see that is gives you the ability to hang more plants from this piece, and it turned out really good, its always fun to make things for the house, my home is filled with my touches of this , that and another thing, i think most wood workers end up having a place filled with wood works that they have done over the years, and there homes end up being a museum of there wood works, i know mine has, if someone wanted to take a tour room by room, i could show them all the big and little things i have done, my home is a place to show what ive done my whole life, enjoy making your home yours, ive really enjoyed my home, we’ve been in it about 15 years now.

If those are the kind of plants that propagate by tendrils, it could be a thing to spread them out so they don’t all hang down in a clump.
