I know you are all hoping to see another quick project, but sadly this one, I didn't get pictures of, so I am just going to tell you about it.
For some time now I have been dragging around, an old card stand. You know the type, they have a center pole, and they stand on a set of roller wheels. They swivel, and have racks that merchants fill with cards, for Christmas, birthdays, and you name it. Well this one had served the purpose in my shop, of holding yarn balls and decorative trims, which was all well and good, but I wasn't really happy with it. However, I had also in my shop, the top, just the top, to a dress makers dummy, that I had bought really cheap, because in the store that had it, someone had broken the pole off, that stood the dummy up. Now I had been thinking, on how I could get a new pole for her, when it struck me. Why don't I modify the old card rack?!
Today, I suited that thought to action, and even engaged my husbands help. I removed all the old card rack parts, which left just the pole, and the rolling wheels. He cut off the center pipe, to the proper length, with a hand saw, while I held it steady in the teeth of his vice. Next he drilled the hole in the bottom of the dummy larger, to fit the metal pole. In it slid, and bing, bang, boom, a new dressmakers stand was born. YIPPY!
I do love it when a plan comes together. Even the rack scraps, and cut off pipe were recycled.
