Repurposing the ashtray stand.

I'm not sure if this counts as woodworking but it involves wood so here goes. In the 30's my dad worked at CCM in Montreal making hockey sticks. He made some little ones and fabricated some ashtray stands, one for each member of his family. Nobody smokes anymore and they are too narrow to hold a flower pot so I took mine apart and made a frame to hold my grandson's annual team photo. I left the 8o+ year old finish that he had applied.

Wow, that is a nice repurpose! I think it continues to hold your father's meaningful work. Your son should appreciate that for years!

hey Pat - vintage photos of family are a cherished treasure.
photography and PhotoShop is a hobby of mine.
please pull the "retouched" photo for your family.
not fully restored, but just a little better.
Happy Holidays !

In case you guys had not noticed, look closely at the old photo. The sticks were one piece then.

Nice project, and an excellent way to tie your father's work & memory to your grandson's sport! I suspect that your father would be pleased.

(And John Smith, good work on that photo. I've done some of that on old photos & it's very tedious to get nice results like that.)
