~ Upcycled Some Sticks ~

I peeked at my dad's tool table yesterday to see what treasures he's hiding in there. This is what I saw lying on the table.


What is that?? Why are there sticks on the table? Well...my dad has these metal files that he uses to smooth out miscellaneous things and they don't have a handle. So, my dad found some sticks lying on the ground and thought that they would make great handles. A little bit of sawing, sanding and drilling later...




I was thinking of making this into a tutorial, but I think if you have one of these things, you are crafty enough to know how to make it by looking at it. Please let me know if you need more detailed instructions and I'll ask my dad.

My dad never ceases to amaze me. Now, I feel better about the big tree in front of my house. It does more than shed bags and bags of leaves of my lawn and provide a home for birds to poop on my car. It gives my dad inspiration and materials for his creations.

You're dad is quite resourceful. Does he know alot about woodcrafting?

Joyce said...

yulia,
they are just some tools that my dad has lying around.

pxyjk,
my dad has no official training, or any training. He just looks and stuff and thinks of how to do it. He built his own tool table from wood. He's... just awesome :)
