So here's the latest creation from the garage. I have a gabillion vintage water skis that I'm constantly figuring ideas for, just like the beer and soda bottle opening station I released recently. This creation features parts from a vintage water ski and a couple of modified parts from some antique Singer sewing machine drawers. Functional in more than one way. Store those little, loose knick knacks sitting on the table (remote controls) or in the bookshelf inside the sewing machine drawers. Did I forget to mention all the yardsticks and measuring sticks!?! You know me, I've got to add them somewhere. They are so much fun to look at and they add so much architecture to each piece. The size of each book end is 9" tall, 6.5" wide and 8.75" deep. So they are plenty big enough to hold several books together. For larger books, you can add a few, small rubber stick-on feet to grip even better.
