My local building salvage yard had a contest to celebrate their 20th anniversary. the rules were that entries had to use at least one salvaged wood bracket and must use 90% of the wood in said bracket. The post is made of hemlock 2×8s that i mitered and assembled into a giant triangle. The pulley is an antique I found on ebay. the lamp is solid brass and has been modified so it can hang instead of be a wall mount and has been rewired to accept a replica edison bulb. All told I got third place in the contest.
now getting to the best part. The ratcheting cord reel is functional. It is made of solid oak and took me about three hours to make.
There are more projects to come one is drying at the time of this writing.
