Thread: Paper clip bowls or cups?

  1. #1

    Paper clip bowls or cups?

    I don't know what to call them. A cup, bowl or maybe a HF. Anyway I had never even thought of making one untill the guy next door brought me a piece of wood and asked if I could make him one from his wood. He wanted it on the large size for the bigger clips he used at work. Wood came from back east and special only to him.
    Heres the strange part. After never even thinking of making one I get the same request from a guy I work with. I don't have pictures of them but both where very happy. And if you need to know I made them for free. I kind of owed both a faver anyway.
    I made more just in case. Black Cherry 4 wide 3 high. Mesquite 3 1/2 high and 3 wide. And then I got carried away and made a pencil cup paper clip combo. Cup 5 high 3 1/2 wide. Paper clip holder 4 high 3 1/2 wide.

    Very cool - matching combo sets. You know what the first question is going to be, right?
    Where did you get the magnetic rings?

    Very cool, Dennis. The paper clip bowls have sold pretty well for me.

    Good Grief NO!!! The darn rabbit would probably try to eat them, get sick, die and stink up the whole house. Besides that, paper clips won't stick to rabbits anyway.

    Enjoy,
