Yes, I have a fascination with "character" decor, let's call it. Portraits, mannequins, heads.....creepy to some...... personable, quirky and fun to others like myself. I have them grouped together in various places and I've started to notice 'new additions' that I did NOT add. For instance, this little bust of JFK (I think that's who it's supposed to be) suddenly appeared on the mantel.
Not sure how long he's been there, or who the character is that made the contribution. Have to admit...very funny....and even though he's not exactly something I would've necessarily picked to add to the collection, I'm considering letting him hang around just because it makes me laugh. I obviously need to keep a closer eye on my visitors not for fear of what they'll 'take', but rather what they're leaving behind. The things that make you go hmmmmmmmm?!

I have my hubby Jon to thank for this idea.....he created these for the shop several years ago, we shared them on our program, B. Original.... and we find ourselves using them all the time. We've also given several of them as gifts. You'd be surprised how many times you'd like to hoist things up on the work bench to work on them and these are the perfect solution. They're easy to manage, portable and work beautifully. You can create a pair for yourself or if you'd like us to do the DIY'in for you...they'll be available in our store for purchase later this week.
And (2) more 2x4’s that measure 8 inches.
One one side, you need to notch out for the legs. Measure over 2” from each side on the 8” board and then up ¾” and draw a line.
Cut out using a handsaw, jigsaw or bandsaw.
The original Tabletop Sawhorse….a handy must have for every studio or shop.
Cheers to creating!
