Easy door stopper
made in Scotland by a happy monkey
On my visit in Scotland, I was in the mood for a little turning project one day.
So I found some wood in the scrap bin at Jamies workshop, Oak to be precise.
So I remembered seeing this type door stopper in a shop once and had them on my to do list for a while.
Actually this is a brilliant way to make a little easy present, a kids first project or simply a way to make use of scrap.
Also it is a way to do some training on the late, since the shapes are all up to you.
1. Oak wedges.
2. First turning each end.
3. Now for sawing.
4. Split in two.
5. We got wedges.
6. In use.
This is another project from my tour to Scotland visiting my friend Jamie.
Hope this post can bring some inspiration, best case give fun to some kids.
