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

For the modern man who lives in the city, riding a bike might be one of the only ways to escape the humdrum monotony. To take off and ride. To be both at one with nature and one with the bike. To feel masculine. Adam Piggott

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
