knob job

Have any old wooden levels collecting dust?  Wainscoting pieces, table leaves, old boards, etc.?  Attach knobs or hooks for instant vertical storage with character.

  Supplies for pictured project:

  • old wooden level (found at antique store)
  • 5 crystal knobs
  • five 3/4″ metal bushings
  • five 2″ screws (length depends on thickness of level)
  • two 3″ (length could vary) brass wood screws

Directions:

  1. determine knob placement, drill pilot holes
  2. thread screw through knob, then bushing, then screw into level (squirt a dab of wood glue in hole for added strength)
  3. secure level to wall through the front & into studs
