Looking for an idea on design for a book end for a shelf in my shop. Want to keep it shop themed, do woodworking, welding and mechanic work. I am not particularly creative so anyone have any ideas?
Thought about the pistons....I have a bunch of them sitting on the bench, two from chainsaws, a couple from sleds and some outboard motor pistons. Trouble is they are aluminum and pretty light, and I don't have a TIG.......want one though.I need some bookends, and I've been considering trying to buy some decoration-quality hand planes. Preferably old ones that aren't recoverable -- badly cracked soles, screws for the frog that are too badly stripped to recover, things like that -- but possibly cheap new ones.
If you're doing mechanic work, how about old engine pistons? They're probably heavy enough to help.
