Plumb bob pocket mushroom
MaFe tired of tangled string.

Here is a little fast and easy project for those of you with a lathe.
I was so tired of tangled string when using my plumb bob so I came up with this little solution.

As often before a piece of trash… a cut off from an old table leg is the material.

Pictures:
1. Soon tangled string…
2. Naaaaa, the plumb bob is put into the mushroom.
3. Like so.
4. Plumb and string.
5. Inside.
6. And rolled up, ready to put into the pocket.

I have not been around LJ so much lately, life has been way too busy, but I soon have wonderful news to share here.

I hope this could be to some inspiration.

Best thoughts,

MaFe

Glad to hear that you have both happy and busy, and will wait, almost patiently for the good news. That is
a very good and practical solution. My plumb bob is presently laying on a shelf with the string hanging down
in loops, this is a much more elegant and compact idea, plus it gives me an excuse to play on the lathe .
Thank you once again for sharing.

Nice, useful and clever project, Mads. I like the color and shape of the mushroom. Can’t wait to see you back on the woodworking business! You’re still great inspiration.

All the best my friend,

Serge

I always knew you were a fun guy to be with Mads, now you’re making mushrooms. A very tactile and useful solution to an age old problem. Can’t wait for the news my friend. I won’t be able to sleep now. :o)
