Figured I could use one of these. Used some HD paint sticks and SteveInMarin’s design. Quick 30 minute project.

So, now you can stir 3 cans of paint at the same time and be able to adjust to the distances between the cans.
Hehe.. I thought I was missing something there! ;-)

That is very clever.

I would like to make one of those, but all of my paint sticks are from Lowe’s. I don’t that would work!

Nice job on this Bob.

Maybe there should be an LJ contest…best use of stir sticks.

I bet you would win.

My website has information on using them, for those not knowing what they’re for.

quick and easy… but now you have to look at them… pull them apart and run them through your sander to get the words off, Bob… look 100% better
