This wonderful piece had so many possibilities! First, I decided to make it a photo display. Its really simple to print pictures off the computer, cut them out and then replace whenever you want!
First, take a look at it before...
Here is another view.
 
My second idea was to make it a clock! With 12 circles, it seemed like a natural thing to do!
I simply used scrapbook paper, and old clockworks. The center bolt was easy to remove and the works slipped right in! Simple!

This was originally used with small jars to store nut and bolts, and although it could still be used for that, I came up with a couple different ideas...

I live in a very remote small town, and haven't met any fellow junkers in the 5 years I have lived here. Great job. Nice to meet you. Annie Posted: 12:16 am on March 28th

auctionjunkie writes: Marie - Thanks for the great idea. I just picked up three of these jar holders at a tool auction in Bryan, TX on Saturday for $12.50. It did come with jars of nuts, bolts and hardware. They were mounted on a board, which looks like it was screwed to the top shelf for easy access to nuts and bolts. Same setup of 12 jars and red paint. Now I wish I had picked up the other one with four carousels on a board. I think it went for only $15. I was planning on using it for it's original purpose, but now you got me thinking.

Thanks,

JunkArchitect writes: Marie, the clock was the absolute perfect idea for this piece of junk. It has an industrial/automotive look to it. Kind of reminds me of a hubcap…maybe it was?
