My Door Stop

I needed a door stop, so this is what I came up with.   It's an old elastic side boot from the local Vinnies, filled with concrete and fitted with a manila rope loop handle.

Concrete boots...    :crazy

On the subject of home-made doorstops, this one came from a Cessna 185 propeller that crashed in PNG (no, not me this time).



It holds my shed door open, and the top handle makes for easy handle- ing.

I had some spare time and some spare bits and pieces, so here's an adornment for my chook shed that I knocked up today.

  P.S.   I wish my RDL seat would hurry up and get back from the USA soon.......   :well

I'd say the matter is urgent if you've resorted to making labels for your out-buildings out of horse shoes to pass the time.    :grin
