Request: She needed a store display to hang mittens on. It was made using materials at hand, some spare plywood and a few knotty pine boards. The post has a 6” lazy susan bearing under it so that it rotates. The protrusion at the top is a card holder for a display sign. It’s held in place with a wooden dowel pin.
This was a two hour hack in the shop this afternoon. Not much more to say about it. It’s functional. The owner can poly it. I’m not a fan of brushes.

Great display. Lots of room for mittens. I’d assume that they would want more rows

Actually Ellen, these mittens are amazing. This lady buys up all the old sweaters in goodwill types of shops and cuts them up to make some of the nicest and best made mittens I’ve ever seen. She wastes nothing. She remakes them into scarves, dog collars, and about a half dozen other things. It reminds me of how the indians used to kill a buffalo and use all of it. By the time she’s done there are just a few threads left. She calls it ‘upcycled’. I’m also helping her put together a website. When it’s up I’ll post a link.

good morning dan, care to share a hot brew this morning, and then lets go make something fun…i would ask for a trip on the lake in your bottle boat, but i think its probably to cold for that now…so sitting around a nice warm wood stove and talk wood working would suit me fine…:).....

Grizz,

Already into my second cup of high test. Wood stoves are sort of out of style here now. People are replacing with pellet stoves. Does the job, you’ve still got a fire flickering, lighting up the ceiling at night, and the pellets are a lot easier than the logs. Mine is running on low right now. And the lake is as usual beautiful. Here is a pict of it this morning.

thanks so much dan, that made my morning….yea i know the pellet stoves are a big hit, and i can understand it, we have them here is the south, but finding places to buy the pellets is the problem here…or i would have one in my shop…with my bad back and wrangling logs, dont mix well…maybe some day they will get the pellet thing down, what a beautiful day on the lake…a friend of mine in utah went fishing yesterday morning, came home with some beautiful rainbow trout…we dont have trout in this warmer area…i miss them…i love to eat em…after i lived in alaska for 15 years and the fishing i did there…coming here to the south was a big hit…...well have a great day…ive got a wooden tackle box im making for a friend in alaska…will post it next week i think…...enjoy the day….grizz
