My wife asked me to build her something to put in the bathroom to hold her toilet paper.. well I thought of a shelf or a box of some sort.. then this thought came to mind.. and this “little helper” always gets a chuckle from company who.. stop by..
I made him from scrap oak, a piece of pine for his head and hard board for the hand.

I know.. too much time on my hands… but sometimes you just have to have some fun out there..

This one made my day!!!! What a wonderful little project. At times we do need to step back and work on a project like this just to relieve the tedium that comes with a long and/or complicated build. Not only is this a functional piece but I am sure it generates a lot of attention, especially from guests.

Thanks for the post. I enjoyed this one.

That is a very nice helper. And his maintenance costs are not much of a burden on the budget. Great job.

Hey Fellow Canuck:

No! Not to much time on your hands I I LOVE IT. Went into “Favorites”.

Lot of Minnows in the Sarnia Area I heard….LOL….

Bucket Mouth was caught at my Cousins Marlyns Cottage on the Trent, just North of Kingston. Used Favorite Top Water Lure, Hula Popper in the Lily Pads. Hard to take a picture when your own your own in a Tippy Little Boat

Fishing, Photography, and Woodchips are also my Favorite Three.

Now we’ll see if this one stays here!!
