01/15: wood hooks

I saw these wood towel hooks on the Merrythought site and thought they would be a perfect project for today. Woodworking in a garage in the middle of January in Minnesota isn’t the warmest. We could set up a space heater in there but it is much easier to find a project that is appropriate for the basement.

These hooks use dowel screws which are also called double ended screws or the British name of handrail bolt. They are my new favorite item in the nail/screw aisle. Knowing they exist now opens up a whole new world of project ideas.

The hooks turned out well. They look great and are very strong. We screwed one into an exposed stud and I could hang from it. My hooks turned out like their hooks so if you want to see them, check out the photos on their site.
