Here’s an oddball project for y’all. It all started the other day when I cut my mother’s grass. Afterwards she wanted to rake up the clippings. The next day I find out she had to go see the Doctor for a sore rotator cuff in her shoulder. She told me that the Doctor has suggested that she get a stand for her blow dryer. Well, I looked on the internet and found a chrome plated one with a flexible cobra style holder for $40.00
No way I said, I told Ma I’d make her one out of wood.
Well here’s my concoction. It’s made from bits and pieces that I had laying around the shop. It folds flat so she can hang it on the wall when she’s not using it. And sits on the counter when she wants to use it.
I haven’t made any projects worth posting lately so I thought I’d throw this out there and see if anybody else has ever made anything of this sort.

Looks like it will do the job.

Actually, a great idea! This coming from a person who has broken a shoulder.

Thanks y’all for all the kind comments. Hopefully somebody else will get some good from this project. I would like to see a different take on it, but how often does somebody need one of these? Ma gave my a thumbs up, so that’s what really matters.

Are you making these blow dryer stands to sell? If so I would LOVE to buy one. Hope to hear from you soon.

Have your say...
