I grumble some when I realize defeat and go to the hardware store for a fastener knowing I have plenty at home, but “Just Can’t Find Them!”
The thoughts of using fasteners, scraps of wood, and finishes left over from other projects soothes me, but even more delightful is the thought of making something that is headed for the landfill live again with a brand new purpose.
So when I combined a pair of CD towers, some old two by fours, and some casters I salvaged from who knows where, and made my own hardware store, I was delighted.
The only thing is, I realized I need more hardware stores. One just isn’t enough.
The project pictured has a base large enough keep the “store” from tipping over, small enough to fit through any door, and able to hold tool boxes associated with fasteners.
I just drive the store up to a project I am working on, then park it out of the way when finished.
I need to make more.
