It seems like my shop is getting more and more cluttered. No doubt this is an unique situation never encountered by other LJs. Ha! I cannot bring myself to throw away anything that looks even remotely useful. Now and then I do get an inspiration and manage to put a scrap to some useful purpose. This occurred recently when I decided to deal with a cut off from an end grain cutting board that had been bouncing around the shop for at least a year or more. Why not drill a hole and cut a couple of angles and turn it into a a bottle balancer? Voila! This is the first end grain bottle balancer that I have seen. I thought originally that I would give it away, but now I have changed my mind. The net result is that I have successfully moved clutter from the shop into the house. But my wife likes it, so I can call it a successful inspiration at this point. And she has not yet wised up to my ulterior motive.
